Floats The Dark Shadow by Yves Fey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When an author strives to make her ebook presentation just like a paperback, I am quickly drawn to the book. Additionally, I followed this author's blog tour and her blog posts on her travels, her thoughts and writing processes were done so creatively, I couldn't help but savour this book from start to finish.
We're taken back to the 1890s in a fluid mixture of art, history, villains, darkness and light. The two main characters Michel and Theo are slowly drawn to the forefront for the reader amidst the mysterious disappearances of children. Their personality clashes as they commence to work together keep the reader entertained just as much as the thickening mystery provides more than one nail biting moment.
In a city we recognise for love and beauty, Yves Fey shows us a chilling side to Paris. Her writing is polished, her attention to detail is obvious, her research appreciated, and the simple touches of chapter headers, quotes and fonts made a big difference to me.
Would I recommend this read? In a heartbeat, and not just the book. I say grab everything this author has written. Her style is breathtaking in every way. You won't be disappointed.
Offensive content?: Based on language and settings, this book is recommended for adult readers.
