A great story that will grip you and not let go!,
This review is from: The Convent of the Pure (Paperback)
Convent of the Pure by Sara Harvey is easily one of the most gripping and intense novels I have ever read. It's an intoxicating blend of mystery, adventure, and horror, with twists that shock you just as you think you have a handle on the story. Set in a steampunk world (itself richly described), Convent of the Pure combines many different modern and medieval themes into one seamless tale. Mrs. Harvey has an amazing ability to develop her characters in a short amount of time, while still devoting large chunks of her book to plot and atmosphere.
Convent of the Pure is not the type of book I normally read, and yet I read this in one sitting and was BEGGING for more at the end. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
