Dark and Mysterious

Dark and mysterious, I couldn't put this book down! Laced with so many vividly details, I felt like I'd been transported to medieval England but it was the books undercurrent of supernatural components which kept me reading through the night. It's nice to find a character driven plot and even nicer to find an author not afraid to challenge the 'typical plot arch".

I couldn't stop reading...

I love how the author used visual details but also was equally vague so that each reader has a unique experience and can draw our own conclusion about areas of the plot. I was excited to share the book with my daughter but was glad I read it before hand because while the message is good for young girls, there are a few scenes not suited for children under seventeen. I enjoyed this book and am very glad I purchased it.

The Taking

Ever love to hate your favorite characters? From Dorian Gray, to Mr Collins, to Heathcliff.......a great piece of literature sometimes has us utterly squirming with delight as we turn one page to the next. THE TAKING by Traci Robison is no different. With a fresh voice Traci weaves a tale imbued with love, mystery, deception, and hate all wrapped up in a tale with characters that are ripe with complexity of emotion. The plot will keep you guessing to the end where it comes to a climactic conclusion.
