I just finished reading Endless and boy was I impressed. I won't go into the story too much as mirrani gave a pretty acurate summary already. It is a lovely combination of the known (Earth) and the imaginative (Crescent, the world most of the story takes place on), connected (mainly) through the character of John. What impressed me the most were the believable characters and the beautiful writing.
To me picking up a book of an author I havent heard of before is always a bit of a mixed excitement. Will I soon discover that i waste my time or will I find that gem amongst the masses? Luckily my time was well spent! Endless definitely is a gem and I really hope the author will release new work soon. I recommend it!
