"The author's craft and creativity (plus the glorious tarot card illustrations) are superb. Nedelea's descriptive skill is impressive (one character, for example, is "a short unremarkable blonde with a face like a seal's.") Her locales paint a perfect sense of place, with pinpoint specificity of sights, sounds and even smells. And her literary tour of medieval torture devices? Explicit---and chilling." BLUEINK REVIEW
"A complex, engrossing archaeological thriller with a plot stretching over many eras. Mark and Isa's quest uncovers a vivid, twisting tale of Renaissance treachery, tarot cards, and a potentially explosive historical revelation." KIRKUS REVIEW
"An extraordinarily powerful debut from a highly talented author. Constant Guests proves to be one of those elusive page turners that will leave its readers deep in thought long after they have turned the last page. It is recommended without reservation." BOOK VIRAL
"Debut author Patricia Nedelea arrives in fantastic form with this first title, showing a clear talent with storytelling from the very first page. Readers of titles such as The Da Vinci Code and its sequels are likely to enjoy the read immensely as long as they're willing to commit a little more to the read, certainly, and those used to historical fiction are likely to do well with it as long as they can get on with the more fantastic elements. Constant Guests is a deep, immersive, modern historical fantasy, certainly worth the investment of any reader's time."SELF-PUBLISHING REVIEW
"Constant Guests combines different elements of storytelling to deliver a literary treat that readers will find irresistible. I was most impressed by the powerful plot lines and the seamless integration of different historic moments into an absorbing story." READERS' FAVORITE
"At first blush, Constant Guests seems like a historical thriller akin to The Da Vinci Code, but there is more here than meets the eye. The seemingly disparate plot lines provide hints and clues while building up an interesting mythology." FOREWORD CLARION REVIEWS
"Constant Guests excels in unexpected twists that will keep readers on edge and surprised: a delight to note in any genre. A powerful read that's hard to put down, filled with compelling action and intrigue throughout." MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
"Nedelea's debut novel provides ample mystery, history, and some romance for a fast-reading and enjoyable tale." THE US REVIEW OF BOOKS
"Constant Guests walks a fine line in terms of plotting, and although it features many literary moments, the story at times reads like something out of a gripping thriller, and manages to take the best of both genres." INDIE READER
"Nedelea's debut is a unique tale with four stories-within-a-story. The enchantingly twisty narrative constantly shifts between first- and third-person viewpoints." ROMANTIC TIMES REVIEWS
"The author also does an amazing job weaving in four storylines set in different time periods. Each plot line is vastly different from one another, yet cleverly connected. Included in these stories are historical facts and people, which makes the read even more enticing. I honestly cannot say enough of how much I enjoyed this novel and look forward to more works from this indie author." ONLINE BOOK CLUB FOR READERS
