Review: *I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review*
What. A. Book. It is entirely different then what I’ve ever read before but I absolutely loved it. The author painted such a wonderful picture of these characters that I was instantly drawn into this strange world and mystery. I loved the characters and the unique voice of Siwar. Everything just felt so real while also being completely inventive.
Also – I was completely stumped with the outcome of this novel and definitely did not see it coming – I love when authors can throw twists in that throw you off!!
This is such a beautiful novel by Natasha Tynes and I definitely recommend it! Publication date is expected for June 11, 2019.
