I really enjoyed this book. I found that Mona's character was very odd at first, but I enjoyed reading the path that led to her strange qualities. Yvette seems to think poorly of herself at times, but ends up being stronger than she thinks she is. The tale started off a bit slow at first. Once I got further into the story, I was hooked! I ended up staying up until 2am one night because I HAD to find out what happened with the characters. I will definitely be reading the next book in the series, The Mystery Tomb. It looks like it's even better than this one.

This is a different kind of story than what I usually read. I tend to steer towards the romance genre. I am glad that I stepped out of my comfort zone and gave this book a chance.

I am not a big mystery fan but I love Eva Pohler's writing so I decided to read this too. Wow! I was up until 3 am this morning because I couldn't put this book down! (good thing I was off work today!) Like The Gatekeepers Saga, this book grabbed me and wouldn't let me go! It was exciting from beginning to end! I will recommend this book to anyone no matter what type of book genre they like! It's even free on Amazon so there is no excuse not to try it! Well done Eva Pohler!

This novel is simultaneously mellow and intense. Pohler mixes intrigue with suspense to keep you on your toes throughout. By writing in the present tense Pohler gives a sense of the here and now, adding to the suspense of the tale. She also flashes back to provide the background for current events in a very captivating manner. I fully admit that at the beginning I found myself wondering where the story was going, but once it took off I was hooked. The genetics and history worked into this novel really had me hooked.

I love the fact that the main character was quite easy to identify with. She lives the stereotypical life of a stay at home housewife yet is quite true to herself, if only in thought. I loved journeying along with her, getting to know her family and those who have a profound effect on her life. Pohler’s character development in this novel is brilliant. Each individual is developed to suit their role perfectly. They are also true to their character. No one magically becomes someone else nor do they miraculously have a moment when they ‘see the light’.

As a whole this novel was well written and thought out. It’s not a light read, but rather a work that really makes you think. It was emotional and suspenseful, combining elements that I would never have dreamed of putting together. This was an intriguing start to Pohler’s new series and I can’t wait to see what comes next.
