She has never felt more in synch-or in love-with anyone in her whole life. So this is how it feels, she thinks to herself, this is what real love feels like. It’s like that for him too; he wants her in a way he’s never wanted anything or anyone before: obsessively, passionately, all-consumingly. She has found her one true love, her soulmate, and he has found his.
What happens next will tear them apart and unleash havoc onto their worlds. This brave, brilliant, electrifying novel from the acclaimed author of After the Fall andLast Summer, will move you deeply and shock you to your core.

“Into My Arms is no ordinary book. Sure, it has the makings of a good book – excellent writing, well-rounded characters, a great plot and sub-plot – but this book’s subject matter does not follow any formula. In fact, the subject matter is so far from anything I have ever read – or anything I’d thought I would ever read – that I found reading it to be like reading for the first time: swept up in another all-consuming world… It raised a lot of questions and will stir a lot of debate. I guess that’s all I can say apart from “Read it, it’s brilliant.” A definite recommendation.”
