What I loved about this book…
I really enjoyed the fact that this story started in London. Having been to London many times, I recognised the location and the description around the Tower of London.
What I enjoyed the most was the historic feeling to the story. There are ‘flash backs’ every now and then throughout the story which gives a glimpse to a bit of history and definitely gives some depth to the story.
There is a bit of mystery with this story, the main mystery for me being trying to figure out who was who, who was good and who was bad, which I have to admit was a bit easy to figure out but it was interesting to have to figure them out at the beginning.
What I was not fond of about this book…
For me, this was a very easy young adult read – nothing complicated. With a story of this kind, I would have loved to have seen more twists and turns and maybe a few surprises along the way. I was really expecting all the things that happened in this story and would have loved to have been surprised a bit.
A really great, easy to read, young adult read that I would recommend to those of you who like a bit of a historic ‘paranormalish’ type read. This is the first in a series and definitely did leave me with quite a few questions that I am intrigued to find out more.
