I love high-stakes, murderously dark fantasy, and Kendare Blake delivered.
I really wanted to like this story, and I'm sorry to say that I was sorely disappointed. The summary of this book sounds wonderful. It's an adventure story, Liza is the only one who can save her brother, she gets to explore a dangerous, fantastical world that she's only heard of from her babysitter. Everything about this book sounds like it should be so good. Which is why it made me so sad that it just wasn't a compelling story.
In 1947 Charlie St. Clair embarks on a journey to find her cousin, Rose, who disappeared in Nazi-occupied France. In 1915 Eve Gardiner gets a chance to prove herself: as a spy in France during the Great War.
This book was ridiculous. It was delightfully silly. It was incredibly dumb. And I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This book was beautifully written. It's written like a collection of poetry, with different poems from different character's perspectives, and I loved how that made the reader focus more on the characters' emotional & mental state, rather than trying to line up what part of the story we were at.
This book makes you think, and it makes you feel. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this book.
OK, I get that it's terrible that a) I've never read an Agatha Christie novel before this point and b) I really didn't enjoy my experience reading Agatha Christie.
Although a slow moving story, this captured me. I was completely swept up into this world where tradition and modernity struggled to maintain control.
