As the fates decree, young Yue Dubois meets a stranger in a quiet provincial town located in the mountains. The more he gets to know the stranger, the more he comes to realize that there is much more to the man than meets the eye. The destined meeting has a greater impact on him and his friends than he could ever have imagined. Will he be able to unravel the mystery before it's too late? Or will he be doomed to relive his worst nightmare over and over again?
Friendship and betrayal, pride and humility, love and despair— they are the tools skillfully used by the stranger who can bring divine happiness or put one through all circles of hell; the man whose soul is tinted fire.
This book starts out a little slow but really picks up by the end. Overall the characters are developed well throughout the book and they are all quite easy to connect with. The books moves at a quick pace as well.
Overall, an excellent book that I really enjoyed. Looking forward to the next one.
