Don’t get me wrong; it does show potential to be good, but the ebb and flow is just so not where it could be. Of course, the author is also a very young debut – she’s only 16 according to her website – and English isn’t her first language, so allowances could be made on inexperience and translation. Those are, with time, things that come later with both practice, guidance, and practical use and are something that I can easily see happening in the near future.
I’m divided as to whether or not I’ll read this when it comes out in the new year. More than likely, I won’t buy it but hopefully my local library will get a copy or I’ll be able to find someone to borrow it from. For right now, though, after that teaser chapter, I’m leaning more towards not reading it. But, maybe there are still editing processes to do and that’s not the final copy.
One thing, though, that I did enjoy from the teaser was that is seems to be incredibly multicultural; something that’s a bit of an oddity with any literature.
Anyways, here’s the cover and the summary. Just by looking at the cover, it looks like it won’t relate to the story in any way so I’m curious as to whether or not it will.
Summary: In life, nothing is the same as it seems. People create masks –identities – to hide who they really are –some for noble reasons, or nefarious ones, but only a tiny fraction because they must.
Alessandra and Damien, or Rosalie and Daniel, were once the Princess and Prince of La Pacifica until they were forced out of the beautiful island. Eight months flew by, and they finally began to settle in Alexandria, Egypt, when they found out that they didn’t leave their past behind them, and that they were both wanted urgently.
What do you think? Would you read it?
