I was introduced to this author and novel by YAReads as part of a blog tour.
The premise of this story is great. I really liked the characters, however the story was slow-going in the beginning and at certain points of the story I would be drawn out of it, because I felt like I’d hiccuped while reading. Something in the wording or such would get a bit “jumpy” and I’d be brought back to reality. I’m not sure if it’s because I was reading a review copy, but honestly I almost wish I could’ve been a beta reader or a critique partner for this author because good-lord this idea is SUPER! The characters have immense potential and as the story progresses I’m hoping to see more development. The supernatural aspect I feel could’ve been developed more and introduced a lot sooner. Overall this was a super quick read that was enjoyable and I will certainly keep my eye out of the next in the series, just to figure out the true purpose of the whole supernatural aspect and weather or not the two main characters will fall prey to history past or beat the odds.
