In a short amount of time, main character Amy meets a stranger who she finds out is her father, as well as a mysterious man who attracts her physically but repels her magically. The meetings are harbingers of the trouble ahead for Amy, as she struggles to put together the story of who she is and what type of world she actually lives in.
The author’s strength is the character dialog. The back and forth between Amy and Duncan is well done and gives insight into their personalities that you wouldn’t get from ordinary exposition.
Amy’s relationship with her father was most interesting to me. It raised the most questions and the author left me wondering if he was to be trusted or not. Of course, you’ll have to get your own copy if you want to find out if he’s out to help Amy or put her in an early grave.
I’d recommend this book to lovers of paranormal mysteries like Charlaine Harris’ “Grave” series.
