As Cold As Thorns tells the story of a man who is truly becoming as cold as thorns. Henrique: A royal tailor with great talent and incomparable skill is determined to be the best tailor the world has ever seen. His thirst for fame, power and the “unattainable” added to his great ambition, awakens a darkness in his soul and this darkness is battling with the little light left in him. Sometimes he is driven by good forces which makes him a compassionate and loving person, at other times he is driven by dark forces and he becomes cold and scary. He tries to hold on to his good side for the people he loves but his selfish desires always gets in the way. The battle between good and evil is getting fierce by the day as the darkness is closing in on him. In such a battle, one can only pray that good wins. This is a fictional book with characters that fit perfectly into its unique plot. Isis Sousa gracefully combined suspense, intrigue, betrayal, love, obsession, mystery with a little bit of romance to produce a wonderful story. As Cold As Thorns is thrilling, it makes you hold your breath at some point in anticipation. It keeps unfolding gradually keeping you glued the whole time. Isis Sousa’s ability to describe even up to the tiniest detail is amazing. It makes you understand the role of each character and the struggles they are experiencing in their own lives clearly. I love the use of pictures, it added a nice touch to the book. It was not like a kiddies playbook with so many colourful pictures, but it was moderate and mature. I would fully recommend this book but you must be able to cope with a level of blood, and this book is just the first part of a series. The only regret I had was that I could not complete the story, I look forward to the other books in the series. I rate As Cold As Thorns 5 stars.
