Abithica by Susan Goldsmith is an ebook, first published by Twilight Times Books on April 14, 2011.
What if you knew you were about to be torn from your body and replaced by an imposter in a seamless switch, forever separating you and the one you love? Would you do whatever it took to stay?
This book had quite a good set-up, with 2 stories running consecutively but separately, which made you wonder how these 2 different strands will combine and come together. The biggest problem with the story was that the main character isn’t that likeable; as she only seems to know half the picture she turns every good thing into a negative. She talks about god having a sense of humour but doesn’t believe that it could actually be god?
The other part to the story surrounds the mysterious Legnas cult is very dark but it is never fully explained as to whether they are supposed to be the negative half of a yin-yang combination. I had to wonder whether this was just to give the whole book an edge rather have it as just another love story.
As I got closer to the last couple of chapters I really felt that the story was going somewhere and that there might have been a big explosive confrontation, and that both stories would end satisfactorily. There was a certain point where you felt that something very bad was going to happen but this was pretty much forgotten in the end. Maybe the author was feeling pressured to get to the goal of a happy ever after.
Overall, this book could have been much better. It had a good idea which was quite original but it felt slow in places and then the ending felt as if it had been rushed, or that there should have been more to it. There were a lot of characters who seemed to be overlooked and deserving of more explanation.
