5.0 out of 5 stars DARK AND MYSTERIOUS AND DRAMATIC. AN AMAZING TALE!, 2 Jun. 2006
This review is from: Roots of Evil (Paperback)
I have just finished reading ROOTS OF EVIL and felt compeld to let others know just what an amazing and intreaging story it is.

I was utterly mezmerised and fasinated at this twisty and whinding plot that seemlessly goes back and forth in time from a present day horrificly gory murder, to the concert halls of 1920,s Vienna and then to the concentration camps of Auschwitz.

After reading Roots of evil i can visualize every person in the cast perfectly and although the tale is compleatly far fetched it is not far fetched enough to compleatly dismiss that some thing like this could really have happend. I can not write about ROOTS of Evil without a mention to the undoudted star in this whole bizzar story, and that is the Baroness Lucritia Von Wolff, the most amazing charaterization i have ever encounted.

This beautifuly crafted plot was part gothic horror, part murder mystery, part romance and part adventure. Madness, scandal, family skeletons, "ghost children", country houses, double identity, historcal reality and Drama, Drama, Drama is waiting for the readers inside these pages. Some bits of the story made me squirm so much with horror that i had to put it down for a second, other parts were exstreamly sad, and other parts gliteringly romantic. The story just builds and builds in to a dazzleing web until you can not rest until you know the whole truth. Every thing that you read on the pages was so well crafted that it came to life as though you were whatching a film , and what a film this story would make.

This is no ordinary murder story and it certainly does not have your typical thriller caracters, it is without any doubt the most complex and exciting novel i have read. Illusions feature stronly in this story line and at times the whole plot is so convicing and vivid you almost think the fianl twist could be that it isn,t actully a work of fiction and that every thing really did happen.

I have read Tower of Silence also by Sarah Rayne and i thouht that was excellent, Roots of Evil was her third book and i am now looing falward to reading her second novel that looks to be just as promising. i can not praise this book highly enough and i am sure that any one with a panchant fot the bizzare and slightly macarbe will be just as delighted with it. Breathtaking .......a truly remarkable illusion is created, the story is an inspiration to the drama queen in us all!

Do you happen to have a spell check on your computer, because you certainly need it. I thought it was a joke at first, but the spelling just got worse and worse.
