This was a very good book. It has love, romance, lust, greed, passion, death, spirituality, and just about everything else. For a debut novel, I'd say that Margot Berwin did a great job. She's left me with high expectations for her next novel.
The story takes place in New York and Mexico, the Yucatan to be specific. As Lila, Armand, Diego, and Exley are all on the hunt for the illusive Nine Plants of Desire. Oh what a tangled web Ms. Berwin has weaved...
This story was exciting. It was pretty fast paced and it kept me wanting more. The stories behind the nine magical and mystical plants are great. Even with all that Lila went through I want to find these plants. I did do some research on some of the nine and they really do have stories just as great as they are given in this book. (I LOVE when an author does great research!)
I was captivated from the first line to the last. I will be looking for a second novel for sure!

One of the worst books I've ever read
There is absolutely nothing positive to say about this book. My book club read it and everyone agreed that it was a complete waste of time. It's mindless. The only redeeming factor was that it was a very fast read. No character development, lousy story, and horrendous writing. I'd give it zero stars if that was possible.
