So This is the first time in a very long time since I had such a hard time reading a book, especially with such a gorgeous cover and great blurb that just caught my attention. However this review will be shorter than most because I was unable to finish it. At the first few pages it caught me but after that it just went downhill after that…I got halfway through which took me a whole week to do since it just didn’t get to me….I was unable to get into the story no matter how hard I tried. I always try to finish a book if I can, however with this one it was a chore to read it….and when it becomes hard to read a book and if I give it a chance (100 pages or more) than I will just put it down…since there are always more books I want to get to as well. I feel bad that I was unable to finish this one…maybe one day I will try reading it again…who knows. But for me I just was unable to get involved into the story (which is a rare occasion its true) and I really though I would love this story after reading the synopsis…but unfortunately that was untrue…maybe one day in the future………………

About Isobel Carr

Isobel Carr has a BA in philosophy, with minors in history and creative writing (Hollins College) and an MFA in creative writing (San Francisco State University). Combine all that with $3.25 and you can buy a spicy chai at her favorite coffee shop. After finishing graduate school, it became painfully clear that a job in the arts wasn't going to pay enough to eat, so she set about looking for a "real" job, ending up as an international trade consultant (basically, fighting with lawyers for a living). When she is not doing that, she is usually writing, though she very occasionally still takes a day to go to a historical re-enactment, in the name of research of course.
