(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
So, I originally had this book come through at a time I’d told myself I really couldn’t take on any more books to read. And then I made the mistake of reading the blurb… and that pretty much hooked its claws into me and wouldn’t let go.
I was really intrigued by the blurb of this book and although I still had some questions by the time I reached the end, I found it quite an entertaining read. The switching between different times wasn’t as confusing as I’d originally thought it might be and I found the book fairly easy to follow.
I did feel that some of the character motivations weren’t explored as thoroughly as they could have been in this book, but I suppose it did set it up for the next book/s to follow on. There were some moments in this that really drew me in and although I only understood bits and pieces of what was going on here, I think it was enough to make me want to read more and find out all the answers to the questions I still have at the end.
Some parts of this book made me think of the film My Soul to Take. There are differences, too, but I couldn’t help comparing the two different things inside my mind.
I felt that this book did do a good job of being multi-genre. I would have liked some more details about the later year, though… there were some advances mentioned, but not enough details (in my opinion) about the different technology available.
There was quite a lot happening in this book, but I didn’t feel that the author made things confusing. This kept me reading throughout and having reached the end, I have found myself wanting to read the next book in this series. It would be interesting to see where the author takes the characters next and I’d like to have some of the questions floating around in my head answered.
