5.0 out of 5 stars Tense, complex - brilliant twists, 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Burning Air (Kindle Edition)
I am so delighted to have been recommended Erin Kelly's books: this was the first I read and I have already ordered another as the quality of the writing and the plot in this book were superb. The story is one which captures the deepest fears and worries within families: the love parents feel for their children and the lengths to which they will go to protect them (and indeed the love and care which children show for their parents). The narrative is generous and well paced: we get a real feel for the characters as the focus moves from one to another within the book. The time-frames move around but this is well signposted and brings understanding for the reader before the characters: a lovely means to bring the reader closer to the action and give the reader a sense of perspective different to the protagonists. Ironically that knowledge leaves the reader more powerless than the characters: the tension in the book escalates to the point where you don't want to know yet can't look away as the resolution unfolds. I loved this.
