It is extremely obvious that Selby has done an immense amount of research into many areas of myths and how police investigate murder cases. This background knowledge helps make the plotline feel as if it could actually happen.
The characters are all extremely well rounded and thoroughly likeable (even with their faults).
Although there are romantic strands to the story, they din' t take over the story and I commend Selby with dealing with mixed and same sex relationships which shows that many people simply fall in love or are attracted to a person rather than their gender.
In places, especially when Yasin is explaining about the Djinn, I felt as if I were watching an episode if Supernatural (which is a good thing).
I found the entire book fascinating, sometimes confusing - thank you footnotes - but it was the last 3 or 4 chapters that truly held my attention and turning the pages as the action is ramped up for the grand finale.
If you like detective novels and supernatural stories, I highly recommend you read this book!
Thank you Anne...really hoping to read more of your work in the future :)
should definitely only be read by those with a strong stomach, the vivid descriptions make you feel as if you were there.
I would definitely recommend this story to anyone with a love of fantasy and mystery.
The story was incredible. Made me use my imagination non stop. What a fantastic film it would make, would love to see the characters in "real life" especially Sariel and Seth. A brilliant read for those that like this kind of thing. A++++++ - gets my vote :o).
