From the first words I was drawn into Maura’s world, watching her blossom from a lonely young girl to someone who knows her place in the affections of others but still doesn’t know her own secret. I knew early on what she was but that didn’t matter and the ending where her secret is revealed was unexpected.
The pacing was good throughout.
The characters (despite the genre) were credible and likeable. If I had one minor criticism it would be that I’m not sure that Ron would have taken all her little oddities in his stride – but then maybe book two will reveal more about that.
This author is extremely talented and I can’t wait to dip into book two. Despite my incredibly long TBR list I think this will have to be on my holiday read list.
