So here's the thing. I've read a lot of books on this site, and without meaning to bring anyone down, I want to say with all honesty that this is by far the most well-written book I've read here. I'm not even exaggerating.
Read the story now
I took this book hoping to be disappointed because I've been binge-reading a lot of books, most of which I couldn't read past the first chapter. Anyway, this book demolished my expectation.
I loved almost everything about it. The characters, the plot, the writing style, and the gripping descriptions. Absolutely fantastic. I can't stop reading.
I'm a huge fan of fantasy, and from the moment I witnessed Kayleen use her seeing ability on the corpse, I was sold. I just love the concept of the whole story. I also love the dynamic between Kayleen and Ian. Their interaction never ceases to make me laugh or smile, at least.
So I did say I loved almost everything. Why 'almost'? Well, I only have one issue with the story and it's how abruptly one scene breaks into another without any warning at all. For example, at the beginning of chapter one, the story was in Kayleen's POV (I hope I'm getting the name correct... I keep calling her Kayla and Kylie. I don't know. I apologize if I'm butchering the name).
Anyway, later in the chapter, the POV shifts to Ian's without any warning and it confused me. But it wasn't as jarring as what happened in chapter 2. I was reading in Ian's POV when all of a sudden, I was thrown into another scene where Kayleen is teaching her class. I had to stop reading for a moment to wonder if I had missed anything.
My unsolicited recommendation is that try to use scene breaks like *** or ### or whatever symbol you're comfortable with, to separate your scenes. I think it will make your story even stronger.
I love the book and I want to see it do well. I'm still reading it—I can't wait to see how things turn out.
Once again, this is a good book. I recommend it to anyone who loves fantasy and paranormal stories. Keep up the good work, author.
