But first… they will have to cross eons of polluted and ever shifting time, to find each other. And a young girl will have to come to terms with a destiny that will take her into the darkest regions of our Solar System.
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).
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.
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.
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).
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.
