Well, this should have been two books, at least. It was a good plot, but the trip to France should never have been squeezed into the same novel.So you hate the Love Triangle? Meet Celia Rees, breaking stereotypes: introducing the Love Hexagon. It's not as bad as it could have been, to be honest, but seriously - this girl has guys falling in love with her left right and centre wherever she goes, and she doesn't settle until what, the second to last page?It took me a while to get into. I don't know if it was the writing that threw me off, or the high expectations I had for Celia Rees. I read The Stone Testament a few years ago and remember it as ridiculously good, so Sovay was a little disappointing.It was okay. The gothic twist somewhere in the middle of her second big adventure was unexpected, but I quite enjoyed it. Not that it was particularly original. I think it should have ended there, though.
