This novel… I am not sure how I came across it, but I am glad I did. I would give this novel a perfect score.
Don’t get me wrong, it isn’t Tolkien or falling in line with major classics, but what is does have, gives it a perfect score, I assure you.
The pace of this novel is perfect, I didn’t feel rushed or bored. It balanced right where I felt like the story was moving forward and I wanted more detail, but right before stalling.
I was all for the characters. Yes, the love interest was a bit cookie cutter bad guy, but hey if the formula works… 😉
There was mystery, sexual tension, intrigue, and gloss from the circus lifestyle, I loved it. I want more! I know it’s a good story when I want more, but this also was great because, guess what, there was an actual ending! Shocking I know. This book was like a really great slice of pie. Not too much, or too little. Just enough to satisfy and not leave you wanting.
I don’t think there was anything I would change in this story. This is done well, it is a perfect sell for multiple age ranges and genres.
A great book to gift someone, as it will appeal to most anyone. Thank You Ryann! Thank you for writing for those of us that just want a great slice of pie in a novel form!
Keep a lookout for my reviews of her other novels, you’ve got a fan in me 🙂
(Yes I did start singing “You’ve got a friend in me” after that first line.)
