3 felt it was a little slow in parts.
‘Excellent blurb and cover. I was happy to try this book for The Wishing Shelf Book Award. Glad I did. The Chinese aspect was particularly interesting as was the archaeology. A bit slow in parts but it builds well to the exciting ending.’ Female reader, aged 32
‘The romance was a surprisingly important aspect of this novel and actually it helped to keep the story together and moving. The writing style is descriptive and her understanding of the Chinese culture (I lived there myself) is spot on. This author seems to work very well when combining legends with a modern plot. Sort of a slower-paced De Vinci Code.’ Female reader, aged 56
‘A very safe read in many way and not full of drugs or sex. The historical aspect is very interesting and the author is a craftswoman at mixing folklore and strong plots; then sprinkling a little romance on top. This is not fast and furious. What it is is very, very good.’ Male reader, aged 67
‘A fascinating historical novel and very, VERY difficult to put down. A FINALIST and highly recommended.’ The Wishing Shelf Book Awards
Since the dig is in a politically sensitive area with its proximity to the Silk Road, they are managed daily by two Chinese apparatchiks. I started to wonder whether these ferocious bulldogs were there for other reasons and I became strangely ‘possessive’ over the finds. It’s hard not to become emotionally involved, especially if you enjoy archaeology. These scenes touch on the sheer donkeywork of a dig, without any delusion that the work involved in preserving historical remains is anything like a walk in the park. The research alone deserves a gold medal.
Gleeson is a phenomenal writer who knows how to weave scientific facts and theories, ancient myths and legends. A thought-provoking book that will leave you panting for more.
