As a woman, I really liked the Aurora character. Very compelling. She was an intense woman, a warrior, and it was great to see a female character drawn in this light. There were actually a lot of admirable, tough yet feminine characters in this book. I was really impressed by this. And, of course, I had a crush on David! He’s kind of the perfect man, so respectful of his family, and he has a dog — what woman could resist him?
There are many spiritual themes inherent in this book, and if you are a believer, I think it will resonate especially with you. But there is something for everyone — it’s just a very entertaining book, a real page-turner! I happen to be a Christian, and I think that this enhanced my experience with the book. But anyone who’s felt the tug between dark and light in their own life will relate to the demons that Aurora and David are battling. At times, it even reminded me a little bit of a time travel version of Game of Thrones, which is one of my favorite shows.
Also, one of my favorite things about the book was the inclusion of the theme of faith. Really enjoyed how this was incorporated, and I’m definitely looking forward to reading the author’s next book. Not sure when it comes out, but I’ll be looking for it. Hope he finishes it soon, because I can’t wait to read what happens next with Aurora and David. Ralph Smith is an exciting voice in this genre, and I hope he writes many more novels!
