The Cathedral of Cliffdale is written in third person, with alternating viewpoints. As such, the reader is treated to the unique lives of a host of other characters in this fantasy world. Despite this, and because the tales of these characters intertwine, the plot does not stray too far from Quinn and her journey (so as to be distracting and cumbersome), but rather have the effect of broadening the readers exposure to this magical world and its creatures.
I found The Cathedral of Cliffdale to be a pleasant read; all in all, a captivating story, and once I got going, I couldn't stop. (There were two late nights, and a lot of: surely it can't be that time already?) If fantasy is your thing, The Cathedral of Cliffdale is sure to be value for your money. And, with the prospect of a series, a lot more awesomeness to come!
Melissa Delport brings each character to life and you can almost see the cornflower field where the unicorn come. Safely ensconced in the magical city hidden from man's eye and those that seek them harm, the remaining supernatural creatures live protected by the guardians. Vampires, sworn enemies of all because of a death centuries earlier, have made it their quest to eradicate every supernatural or magical being. It is the job of the guardians to keep the inhabitants safe.
Can a guardian trust a vampire. Why is the vampire willing to assist the guardian. What is going to happen with the gypsies that also have their own quest to enter the city? So many new things to discover in book 2 =)
However I was quickly surprised at how much I loved it! Loved how the characters (all unique) developed and how their stories, almost teasingly (is that a word?) unravelled. Cannot wait for the next book! I would highly recommend this book.
This book is an combination of contemporary earth, fantasy, paranormal and romance pulled together in a way I can totally believe. The "worlds" and characters are vivid and complex. Our heroine, Quinn, has to make difficult choices that affect not only her life but her sister's children, the Guardians and the creatures they are charged to protect. I don't usually like vampires, but Melissa has found a way with Drake that I can't wait to see more of. Talk about a character with conflicting feelings and interests!
I received a free reader's copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. These opinions are genuinely my own. I highly recommend this book. And now I'm buying the others in the series.
One of the legendary Guardians, Avery, was killed during a mission and no replacement for her position has come forward, the first time in the order's long history. Quinn leaves the warss behind to look after her sister's two children. She soon becomes embroiled in a rip-roaring journey and is forced to choose between family and those she is sworn to protect.
With two Guardians missing, the defence of Summerfeld is weakened and only by uniting their strength can they hope to save those within its magical protection.
It's an awesome read! It might be a bit slow to start, but definitely one to stick with. The cliff-hanger ending will have you downloading book 2 as soon as you've finished with this one. In fact, do yourself a favour and just download both of them so there is no pause inbetween. You WON'T regret it!
