“When one is immortal, one should keep a low profile.”

A new comedic romp through a magical tapestry maintained by Earth’s Immortal women.

temp (8)With less than 200 pages, this was a pretty straight forward book. While I enjoy a good mystery, this book lacked the tension that is so often found in books of this genre. The vision wasn’t there for me, and that plays a big role in my reading. It has some interesting elements, but not enough for me to want to read it again and again.

Abbey has lost her memory. After experiencing some nightmares, her aunts take her from the hospital to the Bastille. Her Aunts make up the “Guild”. So, it’s not surprising that they know all that is happening but they need for her to remember. After much retaining, time travel, mysterious deaths, and so on, the clock is ticking. Abbey must remember, stop immortal antagonists, and repair the tapestry that pulls the guild together.

I found this book a little too fast paced. When fantasy and mystery are involved, there must not be rushing of situations to get to the end. I did enjoy reading it. Would I recommend? To one who likes quick reads and don’t want to get too engrossed in fantasy, yes. This is not for a person who likes to relish in character growth and world building. Not enough pages for that. I don’t think this book is bad, it’s just not for me. An okay read.
