I whole-heartedly recommend this wonderful series, beautifully-wrought that has its own distinct heartbeat. Shell impresses me with her seemingly intimate knowledge of the land and lets her story unfurl in the lives of characters not soon forgotten.
Sadly, this is the last story in the series so the book gets intense and then it cleans everything up with a very graceful ending. I loved every second of it though and will probably have to go back and read 3 and then 4 again, or just start the series over entirely.
The fourth book, in general, has great dialogue that complements the writing that seems to get increasingly skillful and talented with each book. The story comes to life in your mind, but of course, the amazing illustrations are a brilliant bonus to the story. The plot is also top notch, but I can’t really talk a whole lot about it without giving up crucial details.
I’ll definitely miss this series and will secretly hope that there may be some new books, or maybe a character spinoffs some day!
Ryn Shell paints a portrait of 1945 Australia in such vivid detail that it left me feeling breathless and wanting more. The attention to detail has to be commended. I felt like I could feel the heat of the bush fire on my face, I could hear the sound of nature all around me, and the characters were so well drawn that I felt as if I had known them all my life!
The story itself is gripping and kept me turning those pages. I immersed myself in the world of Iain, Emily and Jarrah. I was pulled into their lives and experienced their hopes, dreams, sorrows and moments of triumph.
There is a touch of paranormal to this story that kept me guessing. Was Charlotte a figment of Harry's disturbed mind? Or was she a restless spirit. This drew me even deeper into the story.
Although this is book 6 (cover says 5?) in the series, it works very well as a standalone and I would not hesitate in recommending this extraordinary story.
I Highly Recommend.
I particularly enjoyed the glimpse of the Aboriginal culture portrayed here and how these had intermixed with the settlers. As time passes, so changes must be made, despite tradition. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a thriller with a mix of Australian culture and history.
The haunting of Harry by Charlotte is more prevalent in this book and explains a lot about his actions. I don't want to ruin it too much, but some people die and some seem to be reborn. I'm glad that all the characters were put to rest at the end of this. I truly enjoyed this series and I sincerely hope to see more from author Ryn Shell in the future. She is a gem amongst authors.
