Didn't like it at first, then changed my mind...,
This review is from: Indelible: A Novel (Paperback)
When I started this book I read a couple chapters, then set it aside for a while. When I came back I had to review who all of the characters were, what had happened so far... so I began to determine in my mind that I did not like this book since it was too complicated and difficult to keep track of who everyone was.
As I continued to read, though, I began to change my mind. The story sucked me in and I finished the book quickly, enjoying it much more than I had thought I was going to.
The characters are really what makes this book work. Trevor, Natalie, Fleur were all interesting and lifelike. Natalie's "disability" made this book unique.
I was not that impressed by the "bad guy", though. The short chapters that used Paradise Lost quotes and spoke cryptically about the villain were difficult to understand. The villain felt rather disconnected from the story of Trevor and Natalie, as his motives for doing what he did were vague and never entirely explained. Indeed, I feel this book would have been better if the plot had been slightly different - the villain removed, perhaps - but the main characters remained the same.
Like others have mentioned, the characters are difficult to keep track of - though keep in mind that, though a stand-alone story, this is a sequel to 'Indivisible'.
All in all I enjoyed this book more than I had originally anticipated, and would readily read another book by Kristen Heitzmann. 3.5 stars.
I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
