Wonderful Story

August 1, 2019

This story was engaging from the beginning, and one of the few books I've read that was able to keep me guessing. The book uses and exquisite vocabulary, that left me with few questions and a beautiful imagery. From the time I picked it up until the time I finished I carried it with me! I would read anything put out by this author!
