Masterfully written. Beautiful. Twisty. Gasp! Another plot twist. This changes everything. Created from legend, woven through history with beautiful detail. So vividly told that you can see every moment in your mind's eye. This is another must read from Tosca Lee. I cannot wait to have the 2nd book in my hands.
Best book since The Infernal Devices!
When I first saw this on the shelf at the store I was skeptical to buy it. The first thing that drew me to the book was the cover. It was mesmerizing! I haven't read a book this good in a long time. I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone. You won't be disappointed when you open this amazing book and step inside the world that Tosca Lee created!
READ THIS PLEASE!
I'd like to start off saying: Oh my gosh. Remarkable. Every chapter leaves you with something... Something so unexpected. Just when you believe you had everything figured out... It changes. The book becomes reality and we become Audra. Everything unfolds to us as it does to her. MULTIPLE TIMES MY HEART COULD NOT TAKE IT, IT WAS TOOOOOO MUCH but I kept going. I had to know more. I had to know the end. I had to know what's next, what's to come, what's waiting for my eyes to capture. This book will not waste your time, unless, if you're like me and have absolutely no idea the places that were mentioned throughout the book HAHAH. It was simple beautiful and spectacular.
Thrill. Plot Twists. Fear. Family. Friendship. Optimism. Hope. Faith. Anger. Sadness. Hatred. Deceit. Betrayal. But overall, Love... It's magnificent.
