At first, I’d like to tell you why I chose this exact book.

To be honest, I bought it about a year before we started our PR. I was so interested in this story, but I didn’t have enough time to read it. So, the question how I found this book so far no longer needs to be answered.

When I started to read it, I was really rave about this story. It had everything I could imagine: some mystical places, detective things, supernatural powers and of course romantic lines. And that’s why I definitely can say that it matches my expectations.

Each character is unique, all of them have their own thoughts and fears, but they have one thing in common — they all believe in goodness and justice. Many of the characters have enough wise thoughts with which I agree and which I can use.
