I have always been a lover of Wuthering Heights so I thought this would be right up my alley. The writing style, very formal and journal like, did remind me of the classic and it was well done. However, the story itself didn't do as much for me as I had hoped.
It starts with a noble, Hammel, traveling to the far and uncivilized north for a change of scenery. The story sort of begins here with him having a horrible run-in with his landlord. I was incredibly confused because the characters in the book did not seem anything like the back blurb at this point. But then we jump back in time quite a ways as the housekeeper tells Hammel the story of Lina and Damek. This is the majority of the story is told from Anna's perspective, looking back and telling her story.
Lina and Damek's story is the perfect tragic romance and fits the gothic description very well. Doomed from the start by so many things. There was just too much to it though. The story seemed to drag on too much, the history being told with many rambling sidetracks. The story is intriguing and wanting to know how it ended kept me going, but at times it was hard to do.
