The Book of Sand is available to purchase now.
Now this book has been screaming at me to read it since it popped through my door and when the time came to pick it up and after reading a few pages I knew it was going to be difficult to put down.
With it’s duel timeline The Book of Sand introduces us to a family, not a blood family but a family of mismatched people who have been brought together and live in a shuck out in the dessert. They are tasked with finding an object, the only problem is, others are hunting it too.
McKenzie Strathie is a teenager living in Virginia, she lives with her parents and older brothers but strange things are happening to her, is she going crazy?
I loved both timelines, they were both very different and although I knew they would come together I had no idea how and I have to say I was quite stunned when they did. I seriously wasn’t expecting it at all.
I wouldn’t say this is a fast paced book but each page had me hooked, the detail is remarkable, it’s not over powering but it’s enough to make you really imagine and picture the scenes. It had me sweating and thirsty and it had me absolutely terrified at a couple of points, serious shivers down the spine.
It’s funny because this isn’t the type of book I would normally go for and I’m so happy I gave it a try. Some of the characters really got under my skin, the world building is amazing and over all it’s just a really blooming good story. I’m so happy that this is the first book of a trilogy and I cannot wait to see what happens next.
