A good start to a new trilogy,
This review is from: BIRD (The Bird Trilogy Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I must admit that I was hooked as soon as the book started. I found it easy to read and enjoyed the flowing style of the writing.
The story follows Emily, Josiah and Amelia as they navigate through racism in early 1800’s London. Emily is from a wealthy white family and Josiah is a free black man. They fall in love secretly and battle against all the issues that society has on mixed-race relationships. They have a daughter, Amelia and, after the loss of Josiah, Emily is forced to raise Amelia (who looks very different from her cousins) in the best way that she can. This environment is cruel and destructive and soon Ameila loses Emily too.
As I said, I enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading the sequel too as I think we have not seen the last of Emily and her ‘powers’. Thanks for the opportunity for the read and review.
