The Namaqualand Book of the Dead Reviews
This is a darkly romantic and moody take on love and grief and how far a person can be driven by the combination of those two overwhelming emotions. The writing itself is evocative and downright beautiful in places. Chloe is a character that inspires a lot of sympathy and I was torn between wanting to see her find what she wanted or find what was best for her. The South African setting is so fully realized it's almost another character. All in all, a good read that left me wanting more.
I really enjoyed this story. The descriptions were some of the best I have ever read. Each place the character traveled and spent time was described with impeccable detail. I felt as though I was there walking beside the character the whole time. Chloe is a complex troubled girl, and through her eyes, I fell in love with Aidan. How could I not? What I longed for in the end was more story, more of what happened after...I won't spoil the ending for the readers, but I want, need to see what happens to them. There is more to what meets the eye with both of these characters and my appetite has been primed. I hope there will be another, though I have a sinking feeling that there may not be. If it is truly a romance with no happy ending, then so be it. I'm quite a fan of no HEA. Those are always amazing. This one was no different. Amazing.
The book, as it stands, is lovely. The plot unravels slowly and for awhile you're lulled into the story before a glistening hint of what is to come arrives, shaking your senses. Yes, I'd have loved to see more, but the end is correct, as it is an end, and anything further would warrant a brand new story.
An excellent read in an exotic land to this Canuck... looking for something different? Consider grabbing this!
A very different and interesting read particularly because of the South African setting. I don't know the Namaqualand coastline well at all so visiting these little villages with the MC was delightful and made me quite nostalgic at the mention of familiar things.This story is definitely more a road-trip story than a typical romance, which was refreshing if not exactly what I was expecting. The writing is good and I liked the eclectic cast of characters. Hooray for diversity! My biggest gripe however, is that it feels too short. I wanted so much more from this story and I couldn't quite believe the story was over when it felt like it was just getting started. There's loads more for the author to explore here and hope that she does in future installments.A different read for fans of New Adult with a touch of the paranormal.
