When a Many Plays Away,
This review is from: The Great Pretender (Paperback)
The Great Pretender was a very clever story. It started out as the story of Reginald who was The Great Pretender of the title. But the whole cast of characters had a lot to hide.
The characters all have vital roles to play in the story and they all link up so well. I liked the way Millenia paragraphed her story using bold heading for each one. She kept the pace going well and worked the characters well without flagging at all. It is very much a page turner and as a reader I was so eager to finish it. The ending didn't disappoint at all and it was a bit awesome. Of all the characters Frank was the least likeable but he was so well thought out. A man who carried resentment through his life and wanted revenge in a nasty way. He lost a good friendship and the respect of Tracy too, I think.
Tracy was my favourite character. I know she did wrong but she was an easy target for Frank and she did not know his motives.
A very good debut novel. I look forward to Millenia's next novel, with relish!
