My Rating: 5/5 Stars
One of my favorite books of 2015!!!!
I don’t even know where to begin with this book. The only thing that I regret is that I didn’t read it earlier… that I let it aside so many times, hesitating on the subject! God!!!! Cosway became one of my favorite writers and I know for sure that her next two books won’t disappoint.
I read it when traveling by train and the 6 hour trip flew by without even noticing, and all of this dus to this amazing book.
The plot for me was very interesting, kind of nothing I’ve ever read before, that implies magic,action, love, a plan for vengeance, redemption and second chances.
Our heroes are Matilda, you average girl next door and Jay, an illusionist.
Matilda was my favorite. She is so admirable, her strength and sweetness despite living a tough life. She is an example to all of us, that no matter how many obstacles you have to face, do it with humbleness and dignity. I liked the idea of “not perfect”, of being human, scarred and wanting to find somebody to love. On the opposite corned we find Jay, that had his struggled and baggage to carry, that had to survive as well as Matilda a terrific past that managed to make him the man that he is today. He is driven by vengeance, but Matilda was his balance. This is not the typical book where the hero has a plan and the heroine changes this manner of acting and thinking. No, here is much complicated, here the hero fights for a common cause, one that will lead to closure for both of them.
The connection between the characters is amazing, not only at a physical level, but emotional as well. I liked how they developed, how the little gestures became something much more. You will see when reading the book that there are many background events that already sealed their relationship, but you will discover them lately one as the plot progresses. I liked that nobody wanted to change anyone, that they accepted each other for what they are, with good and flaws.
They clicked so well and had an unity that not all the couples have in a book.
I liked the plot very much, an intelligent mixture of action, love and tension. It was literally one of those books that you simply discover and can’t let it go until you finish it. It seriously has everything to made you a die hard fan.
