The pace was fast, at times a bit too fast for me. But the plot captured you from the first page. I did have a problem with the middle of the book. It was like things just stood still. But then it picked up again. It was a mystery, but more. The main character's life was a steady one. It was a series of highs and lows but a lot of people's lives are that way. The author takes you on an emotional roller coaster. I believe the part I liked the best was the very first part, even though it would break your heart. It's what keeps you reading and turning the pages. One of the most captivating characters was Eva. She had death at her back door and she faced loss but she overcame it. She didn't let it suck her in. IT was as said, "Fear is like a looking glass..." You either look it in the face (looking in the looking glass) or you turn your head and it stalks you forever. Life dealt Eva a bad hand and the story takes you through Eva's dealt hand and how she played it. The author didn't slight the details in the book. You can't go through this book without thinking it through or you will miss the full intention the author is presenting. The characters can't be taken from the surface view. They have depth and you have to take time to get to that depth. It is worth the time. I think the character detail was the core of the book. If you're looking for a fast read where you don't have to really think things out, then this isn't the book for you. I didn't find it a relaxing read. It was like the emotions were too high but sometimes we need to read a book like this to bring us to reality. Fear and how you deal with it. Look it in the face and deal or turn away and let it deal with you. The cover was very interesting. I sat and looked at it and thought about what it meant.
I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily decided to review it.
While the page count is high, the book never gets bogged down and there is almost nonstop drama on every page. You almost wonder how much one character can endure when something else gets thrown at her. We see several crime plots being interwoven that involve the main character, Eva or Evangeline, that effect her directly. While they do knock her back and affect her mentally, she always comes out stronger and fighting, becoming a barrister and trying to bring down those that wronged her.
The book spans several decades and several plots the occur in different countries. We got the states, England, and Japan to name a few, but while you may wonder at first how this new plot that gets introduced could possibly be involved, it's wrapped up neatly at the end and there are no plot holes.
Kudos to the author for managing to balance several different crime plots, mental illness, losses of loved ones, and several emotional punches to the gut
Most of this book is written almost as journal entries, not first person but it does give dates as it chronicles Eva's life. I found some parts hard to follow and I think it can be tightened up since the story does seem to drag a little in the middle of the book. The beginning and end kept a faster pace. I kept thinking, how much more can one person live through? Eva shows her strength under pressure and the will to go on while working to solve a huge mystery.
Angel has written a fast-paced, thrilling story, and I could see a lot of work has been put into it. From well-developed, complex characters to the plot, there wasn't a single weak spot in this book.
It may be a bit darker than what I'm used to, but that's just the main character's dramatic life story. Like a good drama film, you expect your heart to be broken as you read, but stopping is not an option.
If you like your books to grab you by the throat and not let go until the very end, this book is for you!
