Emma Rue is a 19-year-old girl that is trying to live an ordinary life with an abnormal past. He has dealt with seeing what people are like on the inside regardless of how they present themselves. Little does she realize that she is a soul reader. Mr. Roberts brings the reader seamlessly back and forth from the present to the 18th century with a story of love, loss, heartache, and longing. He breathes new life into the age-old stories of vampires, werewolves, and ghosts. He blurs the line between love and obsession and leaves the reader wanting the evil to be a good as they once were yet also hoping for a new start or a new ending.
I’m left with the feeling of loss as I try to comprehend the love Julian and Cassandra (who is modern day Emma) shared. It seems so pure and right and I want it. But, I also want to see where this thing with Stefan will lead if he makes it past the trial he is facing. I am looking forward to this journey and the intrigue of the characters as they become real and living individuals in my mind.
