(I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.)
This book was very unique. It felt so realistic in the sense that the characters seemed incredibly real yet the book contained a lot of supernatural elements. That being said, it all worked so well together. Robin and Suze, long before they’ve even met, started to get these weird dreams with undecipherable images. There’s only two things that they have in common. One of which is they seem to always find each other in these dreams. The other is the very presence of Fryderyk Chopin. But why is Chopin trying to contact them and what do all the images mean?
The book begins with a slower pace as we explore the world and its characters; where they are coming from and what they’ve gone through. I really enjoyed the way Cary Grossman can introduce a setting and follow it with what happened in the past only to send us back to the present setting with a new, fresh hold on the situation. The plot was very unique and when the dreams became more clear, I couldn’t help but wonder what was going to happen next. There were a few elements that I wish could have been explored a little bit more but then again, this is the first in a trilogy and the answers will most likely lie within the pages of the next installments.
It took me a while to really immerse myself into the world of Chopin’s Ghost but once I did, I couldn’t let it go. I’m looking forward to seeing what Robin and Suze are up to next.
I give this book a 3.8 out of 5 rating!
