Lexie Taylor, a seventeen-year-old student nurse in tropical North Queensland, has been assigned a new patient and she’s baffled by his odd and uncooperative behaviour. But she finds herself drawn to the enigmatic Myall, who, for the first time since the death of her older brother, reminds Lexie of what it is to be happy.
As Lexie begins to trust him, Myall reveals he is a Reigntime creature—a magical and immortal being from the Awakening—who will die if he remains in hospital. Risking everything, Lexie smuggles him out, and together they travel deep into the dangerous tropics of Kakadu on a mission to locate the key to his survival.
But the dangers that await them will give Lexie a death sentence of her own..
This book is easily one of the best reads ever and I can , without a shadow of a doubt , put it in my top favorite books of all time ! It has everything: love , adventure, mystery and more !
First of all , let’s talk about the story itself ! The main character , Lexie is everything you can ask for in a fictional creation : she is a strong and powerful woman , who works hard for what she wants , no matter the struggle ! Myall is a wonderful character as well : he is strong, but grounded ! He is exactly the person that can control Lexie’s stubbornness (which is a good thing because every amazing character in a book is stubborn ). The two of them embark on once in a lifetime journey that will change their lives forever ! I would say more but I will leave you to read in order to find out what happens !
Second of all ,the structure of the book is also a characteristic that makes this piece of writing so unique ! The story takes place in Australia , where the author is from ! She has visited all the places she describes in the book , so you can be sure that what you read is actually true ! Sam even took the time to create a new language for this book , just like J.R.R. Tolkien .
To conclude , this book is a must-read for fantasy and fiction lovers and I definitely recommend you read it because Sam is an amazing author !
