What fascinated me about the book was the setting in the year of 1989. That was the year I graduated high school, George Bush Sr. became President, and Mikhail Gorbachev was the leader of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. The late 80's/early 90's - relations between the Soviet Union and the United States were fraught with tensions between the two superpowers. It is set in a time period that many of us saw and can relate to. Or know of someone like a parent, that also was when the revolution of technology had exploded as we entered a new decade. This book was a fast paced read that had me guessing to the end and left me sitting there with a surprised look and a dropped jaw. The unexpected twist was mind boggling. We start in Moscow,and we see things from Tonia's PoV. I found it appealing as Nellie builds the story around our main female character: Tonia, with the familiarity of her own personal background. I don't normally find many book with geographic location with the likes of this one. And I was able to visualize the scenes and the characters being built as if I was right there. The relationships with the other characters developing just like that in "real" life that has you understanding how the puzzle pieces come together at the end. But don't go thinking that you have it figured out in the middle of the book. You will end up with a surprise or two. I was able to feel the shy blush associated a bud romance with Tonia as she meets and spends her time with Peter. But you can also cross scenes where you're feeling loss,anxious,happiness,terror,horror, sadness and empathy with not only Tonia, but the rest of the cast too. This paranormal thriller keep you come back for more. It's pages had me enthralled over the duration of three nights. I have to admit that in the first sitting, I knocked out 83 of it's 332 pages before my e-reader startled me for the third or fourth time when it clunked me in the forehead as I keep falling asleep. I really didn't want to stop reading it. Now the question is will there be a sequel? I certainly hope so!! I put in my plead for it right here and now Nellie. This book is able to cross several categories including: Young Adult, paranormal and suspense. It's a "clean read" that is more believability that we don't see much these days. But I can say that it has that feel of 'If I Stay' and 'Lovely Bones' to it and it would be in fine company with them. Given that, I would confidentially give this book a strong 4.5 out of 5 stars. But of course that is my opinion, so I offer it up to you to check this book out for yourself. I would read more books by this author and I hope you will add her to your TBR list. I don't think you will be disappointed at all! *** Please note that I received this e-ARC from the Bewitching Book Tour for the exchange of my honest but humble opinion. So with that being said, I hope you will take that with a grain of salt." ***
