Colleen Coble is a newer author to me. I’ve read one of her other shorter novels and while enjoyable, it wasn’t one of my favorites. I was anxious to give her writing another try and this seemed like a great option. This series of short books are Coble’s first novel, republished into several novellas.
This book picks up from Book One and if you haven’t already read this, you will probably feel lost throughout as I did. I never felt connected to the characters and quite often the relationships and conversations felt forced.
Short novels aren’t usually something I’m excited about, but this was a nice diversion from what I normally read. I was able to finish in about one afternoon. I read this really quickly, but was left feeling unsatisfied at the end. I would much prefer reading this story as a continuous novel than simply what felt to be an excerpt of a novel. Perhaps one day I will have that opportunity.
