Character and plot, 1 July 2013
This book draws you in to the story of an odd family, just a daughter, Lilly, a mother, Rose, and a gran, Iris, with special powers and secrets. When the mother goes missing, Iris has to tell Lilly all the things she wasn't supposed to know until she was older, and Lilly has to go on a dangerous mission to save her mother.
Once the background to the story is all told and you get to the action, it carries you along with energy and a helluva lot of ideas from physics, archaeology, witchcraft and herbalism. It's a wonderful blend and it all comes together quite amazingly at the end, setting up for a sequel at the same time.
A very skilful debut and I can't wait for the next in the series!
P.S. I know I'm down as an editor on this book, but I only checked for typos!
