This review is from: The Medici Mirror (Paperback)
This book is a beautifully crafted blend of a horror, ghost, love and crime novel that makes for a genuinely cracking read. Expansively whirling through the eras of Catherine de Medici, Victorian London and the present time this genre-bending debut is chock full of heart stopping twists and moments when the hairs on the back of your neck rise. But it is intimate and has emotional depth too as the author deftly pulls you into the psyches of its engaging and credible characters whose destiny you end up caring about. The feelings of dark revenge, jealousy, betrayal, death, yearning, vulnerability and love are all played out in a way that makes you physically 'feel' the book. I was completely immersed. Curl up on the sofa, snatch a chapter on the train or burn the midnight oil with The Medici Mirror. Five stars for sure.
Just search for The Medici Mirror on You Tube to see a mini film that trails the book. it gives a good idea of what this book is all about.
