This reader has a confession to make. I didn't want to read this book. Gasp!
Romance? Time travel? Psychic abilities? Those topics are out of my comfort zone, to put it mildly.
|This WAS me.|
|This is me NOW!|
Speaking of the historical sections? The author nailed it. The research must have been intense. Kearsley doesn't cut a single corner. Historical fiction turns my crank. This one was spinning it!
The Firebird is the 2nd book in a series but absolutely works as a stand-alone read. Hints to the past history of the characters helped with that. I could tell there was more to the story. But it wasn't irritating or distracting.
I was wrong about you Firebird! Forgive me?
