First off, thank you to Tia for sending me this book!
This book started off quite slow, which I’m not used to so it took a while to get into! However once I’d got further into the story, it picked up pace so well. I liked the mystery at the start of the book, I was constantly guessing what was happening, and how our characters would end up, which was very interesting.
I also really liked how the story didn’t drag out, and although there were a couple of big time gaps in there, it made sense overall, and kept the story concise! I liked how each character was unique and he difference between both supernatural species was very well created.
The reality of Reuben’s family finding out about him was also so brilliant;y written, it felt so real. It was exactly how I’d expect someone to handle that news, and I loved it.
The only issue for me was the writing style overall. I didn’t feel as hooked as I’d like to be with the book, and I think the writing style sometimes didn’t fit with the overall flow of the book.
Having said that I still really enjoyed the book, and I really loved the story itself. It was so creative, and I loved the ending so much!
Overall this book was an exciting story, set in one of my favourite eras. It was very accurate to the era, and I loved the mixture of reality with paranormal.
Definitely a fun read!
