Review

Plot/Story:

I was really looking forward reading this book and still no matter how much I tried I just couldn’t finish reading it (sorry) and I have tried a few times. I got stuck somewhere in the middle of the story and I did love a lot of things in the book. It’s clear that the author thought well of the characters and the plot, but I couldn’t connect. The plot is well detailed and the time travel was explained really good (the author did a wonderful job here).

Characters:

The characters were well thought off, but something was missing for me as I think this is where my connection to the overall story fell short.

Writing:

There were some grammar issues here and there, but this had no importance in my eyes and the overall writing style of the author was really good.

Cover Art:

For Science Fiction book, the cover is just not pretty nor it says anything about the books itself. (I would say that I did go to the author’s Goodreads and saw the new cover and it is just wonderful).

You can also read this review at Goodreads and Amazon.

Other Stuff

Opening Line: “Sofya stood on a small, snowy hill, her eyes glued to the stars above.”

Final Thoughts: This was the weirdest things that happen to me while reading a book. I loved a lot of things here, but somehow I just didn’t connect to the story. I really don’t know why and I still think that if you are a Science Fiction reader, you might enjoy this book. For me, I know I will go back to this book and try to read it again in another time.

I am an avid reader, coffee addict, a writer and a blogger. I am a bit of agoraphobic (people scare me, lol). Me and my hubby love to spend every moment together, we even game together.

I live mostly in my own imaginary world full of dragons, magic and vampires and from time to time I pull myself away to deal with the real world.
