My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Book #1 of the Series
This was one of my DSOA selections back in March 2013.
I'm not sure what I was expecting with this one, as I've never read anything by this Author before, but was very nicely surprised by the content.
It seemed to have two very distinctive styles within the whole body of work, but they are nice juxtapositions, and worked really well together.
As a prelude to a series, it is clearly pays off, and I am not itching to to read the rest of this well paced Novella with excellent characterisations and writing. There is a great textural feel to it towards the darkness of Copeland to the inherent goodness and light of Nereia and her Sister Mary.
4 stars from me - I highly recommend you give it a whirl.
As I said at the start of this post, this was one of my DSOA's, and I am really pleased that it's proved a worthy choice.
At the time of writing it's still available for free HERE, which is unbelieveable for such a good piece of writing, but hey ho, get in quick before they change their mind if you didn't get it in March.
I will add the details for the whole series in the Review by Series page at the top of the blog as soon as possible.
As far as Errors/Bug Bears were concerned, there weren't any, which is always the sign of an excellently delivered product, giving not only good storylines but value for money.
