Renita’s passion for the culture and the country itself came across in the writing and the descriptions of the scenes.
Although this is a retelling I never felt like I was reading the same story yet again. It even had suspense and unexpected plot twists.
Luckily this one did live up to my expectations. Overall for me, it lacked the emotion and the suspense that I loved so much in the previous instalment.
When I first saw this book two things grabbed me; firstly the cover, I mean, it’s gorgeous cover porn. This would make amazing bookshelf candy. And secondly the first line.. “Let me be clear: I never intended to raise my brother from his grave, though he may claim otherwise.”
