Book Review - The Forever Girl (Sophia's Journey)

The Forever Girl: Sophia's Journey (Forever Girl, #1)The Forever Girl: Sophia's Journey by Rebecca Hamilton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've just seen a Tweet from Rebecca, quoting Harper Collins's comments about this book: "At times the writing is genuinely brilliant."

Mean ba???rds!

At times, the writing is far above averagely brilliant, and at others, higher. This is what sets Rebecca Hamilton apart from other authors of so-called urban fantasy. There are only so many ways that vampires, wiccans and shape-shifters can be portrayed, and in the end it comes down to the author's style as to whether or not it's a worthwhile read. In Rebecca's case, is certainly is.

This book is a joy from the opening line. If Rebecca Hamilton re-wrote the Yellow pages, she'd make it a great read.
