5/5 stars. Highly recommend.
I got this in June’s Owlcrate box, my first box from them. I absolutely adore this book and the author’s writing. Right from the start I connect with the main character, Elisabeth. Then Nathaniel and Silas arrive and I love them soooo much. They’re both so fleshed out and have awesome, intriguing backstories and personalities. I love how Nathaniel interacts with Elisabeth. How we gleam little things from Silas even without him saying anything.
The little bits of humor thrown in just sold it for me, like a stone gargoyle eating the newspaper. I read this book in a day. I couldn’t put it down!
SO much happened from start to finish but it was all tied up well and the ending was solid. 10 out of 5 stars. Highly recommend and I’m going to be purchasing Rogerson’s other novel.
