Not "Twilight". THIS IS IN A CLASS OF IT'S OWN!
3 October 2018
I was so intrigued by the first episode of the TV version of this that I immediately bought the complete trilogy and for an entire fortnight (bearing in mind I work full time) I immersed myself in a world where witches, vampires and daemons walk among us, with nary a broomstick, coffin or black cat in sight, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Her characters were believable, likeable, loatheable. Locations were real and so well described one knew instinctively it was from personal experience and not Google earth, and one very quickly felt at home in the various, detailed locations. As a lover of history, particularly Elizabethan, I recognise lovingly carried out research when I see it, but here I would say.... go and read the books for yourselves as I'm in danger of wandering into spoiler territory now.
Finally, yes, it IS a love story, but if, like me you prefer an adventure, don't be put off, because it is also an adventure in every sense of the word. But be warned.... I've been back from this world for almost a week now and I'm finding it somewhat difficult to adjust to living once more in a world where only humans dwell. Or perhaps I'm just not seeing clearly 😊
