I love Litherland’s writing style. He draws readers completely into his world while at the same time leaving them lots of room to use their imaginations. This melds with his unique yet intriguing storyline that kept me on my toes. The combination of reality and the ‘other’ that comes through from the future was fantastic. The characters in this novel were fantastic. Litherland developed them as if they were real people that you know. We don’t get their entire biographies, but rather the information that we’d receive if we’d actually met them. These individuals were extremely original yet very easy to identify with. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them. I loved the contrast between the characters that I do like and those that I didn’t. This made the story feel so much more real to me. As a whole, this was a uniquely satisfying novel that is a great launch for Litherland’s series. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
