Some books have good stories but their character development just doesn’t cut in. This book has no such problem. From the first page till the last page, the whole plot and counterplot are just unique and interesting. Each character is represented in such a way that everything just feels real. There’s no doubt that Deborah Harkness has written some great novels. This book lives up to expectations as usual.
The story, writing, and narration are just spot on. Jennifer Ikeda represented the characters well with appropriate diction. There is no single character that seems out of place with the storyline.

The plot is very interesting as well as the character representation.
