read. I have nothing against mysteries, sci- fi , historiacal fiction, or suspense , but I tend to hold all genres to the same criteria and that may not be fair. So from this point forward I will try to hold suspense, action and mysteries to a slightly different criteria . One where plot is more important. That said to say this book was good would be a gynormous understatement!
One of the reasons I enjoyed this book is the masterful use of description. It takes skill and a special kind of artistry to make me feel hot, sticky and tired in the middle of winter when I was reading this book. I could feel the ache, despair, and hopelessness the characters felt protection having to protect a community that wasnn't exactly enthused about them being there. You also got a chance to reexperience the diffculty of readjusting to civilain life. I love how the author use what would normally be considered backstory to move the plot forward.
I would give this book 5 out of 5 stars it will be added to my permanent collection which says alot since I don't have alot of space in my tiny apartment for books. The ones that make it to the permanent collection are the literary gems that I hold dear.
