I don’t think that I have words to describe this book. I can honestly say I have never read a book like this before. Ever. In my entire life. I can not even begin to tell you what kind of book this is. I think to accurately describe it I could say it had every mystical thing in it other than vampires and werewolves. There was a huge amount of unexplainable mysterious stuff going on in this book. The mist was the first oddity…the bees came much later. The mind of this author is quite an astonishing thing. I have no clue how he put all of this together into the literally spell binding piece of literature that I have been reading all week long. I feel a bit empty now that I have finished it. I will attempt to briefly highlight the story.
First of all there was the birth of Meredia. And since that was not normal at all it sort of set the scene for everything else that happened. Meredia was a huge character in the book but there were so many other huge characters. Really. Tons of them. After reading this book I am not even sure of the era. There was so much magic and mystery that I did not even care but I think it was a long long time ago in a far away place…almost positive. It was a story of families and love and nightmares and magic…this ever pervading unexplainable magic. The magic was everywhere. And…to be truthful…not all of the magic was good…it was frightening and surprising. It is also a story of families and love and a horrible evil. And I think it is a story of one woman’s strength and beauty and courage among so many things that could send the best of us under the covers.
Now that I have totally not explained this book…I can honestly say I loved it. It sort of made me queasy in the beginning but I learned to love this story. I felt caught up in it and spun around by it and totally taken over by it.
The author is amazing, the book was stunning, and I can’t believe I am finished with it. I wasn’t quite ready for it to end.
So…what do I think you should do? Hmmm…if you love an intense story…you should not pass up this book. If you love a quirky magical story…you should definitely read this book.
This book is my own personally purchased Kindled copy.
