Greta Cribbs has written an interesting tale that, though steeped in mystery and ancient magic, manages to avoid the generic elements fantasy writers usually rely on. The plot builds slowly, developing the relationships between the characters and their interwoven histories. The characters of Jenn and Damian are particularly well rounded and their anguish is nicely conveyed without over-egging the emotional custard. I also liked the character of Bob, whose laid-back style added a touch of humour. At times, the pace felt a little too slow and I found myself wanting to skip forward, but overall this is a clever and well thought-out novel that made a pleasant change from the usual clichés we find in this genre.
A large volume of books which I have recently been asked to review have fallen mostly into the sci-fi genre and this was a nice change from that. Although I am not huge on history, I do enjoy history with a dark twist and magic etc. That was what hook me on this book; all the finding out what was happening, the strange illness and the history of the Fuentes family. Those were also some of my favourite parts of the book. The characters in the story were also decent, but I wouldn't say I preferred one over the other. The writing was reasonable but easy to read and quite fast paced. There was plenty of detail with a mixture of plenty of dialogue too. The chapters were of a decent size too so you didn't spend too much time mixing between all the different characters/viewpoints but when they did switch, you didn't feel confused or left off at a random point. I did enjoy the ending, the realistic side of it and there is definitely quite a dark side to this story, especially when talking death and gore. I certainly enjoy books with this and felt like the writing worked well here.
Overall, an enjoyable read with some interesting points into the history of the Fuentes legacy and dark magic. I definitely think it would be really interesting to read more into the Fuentes family, origins or maybe even future works.
As the story progresses, the reader will enter the realm of the supernatural like never before. It goes further than what the author portrayed in Amelia's Children. Encouraged by that book, I plowed on through this one and am glad that I did. There is more to this story than meets the eye. The characters are dark, there is a lot of bad things happening and the author does not hold back with the death and gore. She lets loose completely and with a highly built up climax, she gives us a shattering end that I assume many will not expect.
The author does not hesitate to experiment with her characters and doesn't go for the cliched alls well that ends well kind of plot. The author draws heavily on the emotions of the readers through her characters, bringing out their inner desires and feelings. We hurt and heal with them and also embark on a journey of shared experiences. With hidden truths and half truths coming to light, all bonds of friendship, trust and love are tested.
Overall this is a decent read, with a mixture of twists, thrills and some minor cliches thrown in. I must warn you however, that kind of story is not for the faintest of hearts!
