I loved the setting in an Edinburgh of the future. The geological activity there was well portrayed. I think he could return to that theme.
If you want a fast read, with a few twists, then this is for you.
The intensity of the geographical and geological description of the island of Inch and its surrounding area was just stunning and so atmospheric, I actually felt like I was standing on the island in the opening chapter looking through the eyes of Surtsey.
There's a very deep emotional story running behind the dark psychological crime plot that had me quite tearful and I had so much empathy for sisters Surtsey and Iona watching and waiting for their mother to die.
I didn't particularly like any of the characters but I think that's how we as readers are expected to feel these days. We love to dislike characters and although Surtsey was particularly unlikable I couldn't help feeling sorry for her and this made me empathise with her more. Although she was a complete mess and troubled, I fully understood her actions.
There has obviously been a lot of research carried out into volcanos and geology in general and knowing Edinburgh particularly well myself and loving all things Scottish, I adored this book and devoured it over a weekend. I'll be checking that no fault lines have appeared when I visit Edinburgh in the next couple of weeks and hope there's no tremors when crossing the new Forth bridge!
A frighteningly tense and scary scenario concluded this brilliant book. I thought the whole premise for the story unique, original and very clever. I thoroughly enjoyed my time reading it and I will be definitely reading more by the author Doug Johnstone. I so like his writing style, I find him creative, intelligent and very talented and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him or his book "Fault Lines" published by the well respected Orenda books.
