The plot well thought out and constructed as were the characters, with little misdirection hints that threw you off the scent of the total plot, which I loved. The book ended in such a way as to leave room for a sequel and I hope that David delivers!
characters so well want to know what happen as next. This could quite easily be book one of a series the genre was well written not over the top kept my interest . Each character well developed and described that I can picture them individually and collectively. More please
Admittedly I struggled to get my head around all that was going on in the beginning of the book. I could not get a feel for the many characters. They were just not combining in my head. That is not because the book is not well written, as it is cleverly put together. I just really had trouble relating to the characters. But as they started to develop a bit more, I started to really grasp what was going on and really got into it.
Edna cracks me up, Matt sounds dreamy, and Abbey is just so lost. Lynn has a flatulence problem, the residents of the Meadows are an eclectic bunch, and Robert is a mystery just dying to be uncovered.
Abbie is trying to regain her memory. She has dreams, but every time she is close to remembering, it all shatters and she is back where she started. Her Aunts know more than what they are letting on, and I am really beginning to think there is much more to that story. Abbey’s stay at the psychiatric facility seemed to have helped, but as soon as her Aunts are aware of her progress, they whisk her back to Bastille. They are part of the Guild.
“I know who you are.” She pulled back and locked eyes with Abbey. “Do you want to know?”
Lynn, Abbey’s therapist, meets Robert, the Frenchman, who is eager to learn more about Abbey. Lynn believes robert has been sent directly from God, such is his magnificence. Robert is an Immortal, who seems to have a little unhealthy obsession with killing those that annoy him, which is most of the population.
Little by little, more of the mystery is revealed. Riddles fill this book by the plenty. Matt wants to solve the mystery of the dead women, Abbey wants to remember, and Robert, well I am not sure exactly what he wants, but I know it cannot be good. This story hase me really intrigued now. I cannot rest until I find out what the ending will be.
The Guild of Immortal Women is quite a funny story and getting funnier by the chapter. The book is full of crazies, and ironically, I believe Abbey is the sanest of them all. Her level of frustration increases until she bursts, taking out all her insecurities on her family. Her Aunt Eleanor knows way more than she will tell Abbey, and it is making her insane. She needs to know. Nothing makes sense to her, and until all the pieces are outlined, the fragments of her life will remain jumbled, not coming together to complete the puzzle.
Robert needs to impregnate an Immortal, and it looks as though Abbey is the lucky woman he has sought out to fulfill this role. There are fewer Immortal men than women. Abbey needs solace, so she goes for a horse ride and meets up with Matt, in the woods. Little do they know that Robert is lurking out of sight, watching everything from behind cover. Everyone goes on the hunt to locate her, and when she is found and returns to the house, she returns to Eleanor’s wrath.
“You flee into forgetfulness when the rest of us live with our mistakes. That, my dear, is the definition of coward.” Eleanor turned her back and strode away.
Tough love is used by Boo, to try to nudge Abbey’s memories. Their existence depends on her remembering. The Guild is weakened by Abbey’s amnesia. The shocks are coming hard and fast now. So much activity throughout the whole journey, so far. So many things happening, which will come together at the end, for the big finale.
And what a finale it was! Abbey regained her memory, the Guild regained its full strength. Matt had a hand in the ending, and Robert was finally revealed as the villain he was. He disappeared before they could end him, but he left something behind with Abbey. That act leaving quite the opening for another story.
Although it took me a bit to get the gist of the story, it ended in splendidly explosive style. The characters and story coming together to be a great entertaining read. This was my first book by these authors, and it was a thrill to read it.
Abbey Emerson is one of the immortal women that live at Bastille with her Aunts and other immortal women. When Abbey gets amnesia and is put in a home. until one day her Aunts came to get her out to bring her home. From the time Abbey gets home, her Aunts impress upon her to remember what she is forgetting. Things are coming in and out of the tapestry and she doesn't remember why. There is corner of the tapestry was stolen and the Aunts know who has it but the immortal also wants Abbey. Will the Aunts help her gain her memory back? Will she mend the tapestry before its to late? Will the immortal get to her?
Matt Mathers is a detective that happens to find the first body on Bastille property then a few days later another body is found. He knows that the Aunts and Abbey are involved, just not sure how yet. He also knows that many mysterious things have been going on at Bastille but he cannot get any information. When he goes to the Aunts annual Faire and Ritual to speak with Abbey, he finds more than just Abbey. Will he solve his mystery? Will he find more then what he bargains for?
This story about this group of immortal and mortals who will keep you wondering what is going to happen next? They will have you laughing and frustrated. It has a way of mixing reality and magic into all in one story. Will the tapestry get put back together? Will Abbey remember to save all? Secrets are meant to be secrets but will they stay secret?
This is a first read for me by David Alan Morrison and H. L Melvin. David is currently an adjunct instructor of Drama at Skagit Valley Community College. He also works with the local theaters as a director, actor and instructor. H. L. is the author of History Primer. This book is magical and often times humorous. I suggest you read this book as it is a fast easy read and I think that you will enjoy it as much as I have.
