This book is a hard one to review. I liked the story and characters, but at the other hand I didn’t like Harris’s writing and the way she portrays the characters. Take Vianne; the first time we “meet” her, we know there is something magical about her and at some points it’s really clear in the story, but because of her gift I wanted to see more of it. If you give your character such a special gift, dare to use it to its full extant. I feel like Harris didn’t. Also Roux, one of the gypsy people; he is mysterious, but just not enough. So by making the characters even more interesting and using their and her own potential Harris could have made a really great book, now it’s just good.
