I won't give away details, but the book tells two stories, one current and one from the past. Both are intriguing and they go hand in hand. I was just getting into the current story when he switched over to the past story, but then that one sucked me in too and I wanted to know what would happen in both realms.
This is one of those books that really gets you. Or me, at least! I didn't want to stop reading it so I read and read and read as fast as my eyes and time schedule would allow. I didn't want to put it down. And yet when I was done with it I was like aw, bummer! It's over! I didn't want it to be behind me. I thought about it and marveled over it.
It's not the type of book I would ever come up with or imagine on my own. That's partly what intrigued me. It has some history to it in the past story it includes and I just don't write that type of thing. It had some love and some mystery and plenty of just plain good writing.
When I do reviews, I generally try to include something constructive that I didn't like to show the other side of things. The only comment I'll make on this book is that the cover isn't what I would expect from what came inside. The cover is very pretty, but I don't feel like it is a good indication of just how good this book is and it doesn't give any hint as to what you will find.
If you're looking for something new to read, read this. I certainly wasn't disappointed!
