I received a copy of this book from the author and I voluntarily reviewed it. Thank you Lylah James!
Oh my GAWD! Even knowing the outcome of this novel before reading it, I could not help but be completely shattered by this story. It is written in a way that captures your mind. You will connect with the characters, and you will embark with them on their story.
Maria's past is so heartbreaking, and the way she is just shatters your soul. Her purity is beautiful; it's enchanting. James's character building is flawless. All her characters are unique, and the way they interact with each other is coherent. It makes sense.
This reads as a story that the author took time to write. It's well crafted, and not rushed. Things make sense. The atmosphere of the novel is consistent. The story flows well, at a proper speed. Not rushed, but you still heart-racing and completely enthralling. I couldn't stop flipping the pages. Even when I got to the end, I furiously tapped my screen (even though I knew full well the story was over - I had passed the acknowledgements).
Needless to say that I totally recommend this book!
