I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers & authors, I am under no obligation to write a positive review. Only an honest one.
A very awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written paranormal (dual timeline) mystery book. It was very easy for me to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. There were no grammar/typo errors, nor any repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of exciting scenarios, with several twists/turns & a huge set of unique characters to keep track of. This could also make another great paranormal mystery movie, or better yet a mini TV series. A very easy rating of 5 stars.
Thank you for the free author; EBookStageAmazon Digital Services LLC.; book

There's a few nitpicks I have with the POV (it jumps into different characters' heads quite a bit) and a cameo by a powerful magical entity that kinda jumps mythologies. The novel's portrayal of mental hospitals is also a bit dodgy (in no universe do they let out a guy with knife wounds claiming to be from another time just because his family asks nicely, nor are they fooled by someone hiding a pill in their mouth). And if you think the 17th century guy is going to sound like he's from the 17th century... no. Frequent nods are made to things he doesn't understand, but his heartthrob status overrules speech patterns or old social mores (which for him was yesterday). I'd grade the book down to two stars, but it has some strengths that made the reading experience breeze by.
The pacing is pretty good; the characters form a fairly convincing small town and seem real to one another; the heroes suffer a bit and have to struggle against some fairly powerful forces; and rather importantly, the central mystery reveals that not all allies and enemies are as they first appear. If you've read a lot of urban fantasies in which the hero finds out their True Lineage (tm), you probably won't be surprised by much here, but it came at appropriately dramatic moments. Lastly, I booed the characters that I was supposed to boo and liked the characters I was supposed to like, and that isn't the easiest thing in the world to write. So props to the work that went into the book.
3 out of 5.
