Magnificent, amazing, extraordinary, suspenseful, paranormal story Inamorata by Megan Chance is phenomenally written with captivating and engaging characters. I received Inamorata free from Kindle Prime and thoroughly loved and enjoyed reading it. The four main characters Nicholas, the twins, Hannah and Jonathan, and the sexually, alluring Oldile's lives all interact with each other in meaningful, spellbinding, and unbelievable ways. While Nicholas has made it his mission to stop men from falling under Oldile's spell, the twins draw everyone's attention toward them including Nicholas and Oldile. Read the highly recommended, wonderfully written, full of complex twists & strong binding love, thrilling story Inamorata by the talented Megan Chance.
I found this story one of my harder ones to review. You see, I switched back and forth between the ebook and the audio, all depending on where and what I was doing at the time. The author told this story between four different characters. Each chapter announced who was speaking. Each character bringing their own unique view to the story. I don't think the story would have been as complete or as interesting if it was told only by one point of view. And yet, had I not had the audio to give me voices to distinguish the characters I think I would have been confused and lost jumping from character to character. Though, again I reiterate, if it had been told from one point of view the story itself would be greatly lacking. Once I had those voices of each character in my head, I was totally lost in this story. Coming back to it greedily, reading at every opportunity I had. Even listening to it while I cooked, gardened or watch my children play. The author easily calling up pictures of Venice in my head, though I have never been there and have only seen a few picture to use as reference. I also I found my curiosity of what secrets the characters were holding, utterly striking that I had a hard time putting the book down or even to press pause on the audio version. All in all great characters, plot and description. But I HIGHLY recommend the audio version, because it gives the story something that it is lacking in the written form.
