book will expand your mind….
By K V Johansen
surprised me. It starts out at a snail’s pace
and never gained speed, yet the story did become more
and more engaging as I went deeper into it.
starts out with two separate stories that are over a
hundred years apart and are completely different. As
you read them, the two get closer and more similar as
the pages go, until at the very end they become almost
indistinguishable. Then at the end everything is wrapped
up and all questions are answered, making the read worth
enjoyed the dialogue and found it very easy to follow,
even when there was languages other than English spoken.
Every description of how people looked, gestures they
made, even down to when someone blushed, are all detailed
with great detail.
favorite character was seventeen year old Leonie. She
sometimes made some youth full mistakes of judgment,
yet I still found her to be very mature for her age.
most books, the strength of the story depends on how
good the villain of the story is. That is to say the
story must get you to have really have strong feelings
of hate and get you to really think and fear that there
is a chance that good will not prevail. This book delivers.
The villain is ever present throughout, and makes you
wonder what the outcome will be.
personally read the hard back version of this, and would
highly recommend this version. The reason I do is because
this version has a book cover that contains pictures
of the tarot cards that are mentioned throughout the
book. It helped immensely to reference them when they
would say that this is a great book to anyone who is
open to the idea that we all share a common bond. The
story does center on the cards, yet it also just tells
how we are all connected. Everything we do, down to
the smallest acts, somehow effects the people around
…and this book will waste your time.

R, salvage has written a science fiction (that has just
a hint of fantasy) story that lost me for most of the
story. It is a story that had huge potential, yet fell
characters are underdeveloped. If this book was another
hundred pages or more, it is possible that character
development could have happened. Then it would have
been easier to adhere to, understand the motives of,
and just get to know in general.
plot line is way too sketchy. The motives behind the
main characters are so under-explained that it felt
like there is a whole lot that was not explained and
was assumed that the reader knew about- which left me
scratching my head in bewilderment. It shows moments
of violence, and then stops. It intimates there will
be sexual tension, and then there is none. The moments
talking of advanced technology came up short as well
as it only gave brief explanations at best. Each time
the story started to get good, the story shifted to
another plot line, and then continued with this pattern
throughout the book. It just felt like the book was
basically trying to be a prequel to something possible
better. Just the same, with so many good books, I say
save your reading time for something that is good from
