's review 

You know how we, as readers, stress and plead time and time again for more detail in our favorite books? Totally not a problem here. Even in the introductory pages you can tell the author either comes from a strong archaeological/historian background or she really did some serious research; quite possibly both. You never have those annoying little gaps of "What happened between here and here?" or "How did _ know that?" -- I never had to reread sentences/paragraphs and that helps to stay immersed in the story. I also want to point out how beautifully the author blended a circumstance so heavily rooted in ancient times with modern mentions. Honestly, sometimes I cringe when authors namedrop pop culture icons but in this book it actually felt natural and relatable. There's also not too many moments when characters act OOC/unbelievably just for the sake of moving the plot along. Sage and St.John don't feel forced and I seriously appreciate that. I'm really glad I got the opportunity to read this!

((Disclaimer: I did receive a free copy of this book, however my opinions are my own. This review intentionally focuses on the author's writing style and strength of storytelling, if you want to know what the book is about, read it!))
