First of all, to receive an ARC from the Sylvain Reynard is definitely the highlight of my year... I've been a fan for a long time. I have all the Gabriel Inferno Trilogy paperbacks... it's not easy to get a copy of it in this part of the globe because they get sold-out right away but I've been diligent enough keep going back to the bookstore to check for copies...
I've been waiting for this book for months! Months! And to receive an ARC of it made me so ecstatic. I consider it to be an early Christmas present.
In that email packet I received, there was a warning about it being long.... and honestly I was a wee bit apprehensive cause it was true that it was indeed cutting it close. I was reviewing several books beforehand, and I was scared I wouldnt make it to the deadline... but here I am, smug and smiling.
I only started reading it this morning and just finished a few minutes ago. It took about 6 hours, give or take. I cant even wait to write this review. I didnt expect this to blow me out of my friggin mind. I mean, page after friggin page, I cant seem to un-glue myself from my iPad. I've barely even eaten! Every chapter just gives you that certain crave... that certain high... I've never tried illegal drugs in my entire lifetime but I imagine this is how it feels... this book is so friggin amazing!
If this were a movie, it would definitely be a blockbuster hit! How the author wrote it, it was vivid and every little bit that was written was necessary to the whole story. As a reader, I normally get a slump somehwere in between especially when reading a long story... but in this one, I just cant get enough... even towards the end, I was longing for more. It was worth spending my time on—every minute was worth it.
It was just the right amount of action, thrill and romance... Nicholas and Acacia's story reminded me of a modern day Beauty and the Beast–A troubled hero with a scarred face and a beautiful, compassionate heroine who see's beyond the physical... The pacing, the cover, the development of the story and the growth of the characters—are all beyond great! I can't sing enough praises!
I cant wait for the paperbacks to be released here. I hope it wont take very long.
THE MAN IN THE BLACK SUIT is everything you'd want in a book! Get your copy now!
