Goodreads Summary: History always has a way of repeating itself
Madame Lilly journeys back in time to her great grandmother's era, the time of Sanura. Both women possess more than a kinship for they are each bound by harmful spirits whom they refuse to relinquish. By the hand of a mysterious being, Elijah, Lilly is transported into the past to witness the dark path Sanura chose that ultimately lead to her demise.
While in this era, Lilly feels the turmoil Sanura endured as a young girl. Even as she fights to deny her ability to see the non-living. But the more she refuses the sight, the more the dead seem to flock. And then a dreadful accident takes place forcing her to finally accept her once unwanted gift. She soon welcomes the dead.
Through Sanura's struggle of growing up an innocent child being forced to take on the burdens no one should undergo, she ultimately transforms into a frightfully powerfully woman. Lilly watches from afar, as Sanura grows more commanding with each act of wickedness, until her final downfall. Even then, Sanura refuses to surrender her bound spirits for they need her as much as she thought she needed them.
I have read three books by this author and I feel that every time she writes she gets better and better. In this story Lilly's great grandmother Sanura is the focal point in this story. We go through this journey of the 1800s and how the lives of women and slaves were. Elijah sends Lilly in the past to see the life of her grandmother Sanura. Sanura and Lilly in my point of view are just alike. Out of the three this one is my favorite. I really did enjoy reading this one a bit more than the others but don't get me wrong, they were all good.
The writing was great. As I said, she gets better with every story. It was a nice quick read and intense at the same time!!!
I..Love..The...Cover! This book cover screams power all over the place. The cover itself alone would have me to pick up the book (Book judging. Don't hold it against me please.)
I can't wait to read more by this author. She is one of those authors that after you have read the previous works, and you find out that there is more coming, you know that they are going to be good.
