City of the Fallen by Diana Bocco
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What did you think about the writing style? I was drawn in from the very first page. Bocco’s writing style is akin to a beautiful temptress who whispers in your ear and if you do not turn the page, you know it’s your loss. Despite the numerous twists in the story, Bocco keeps it smooth and you are not unwillingly thrown out of the mesmerising setting she has created.
What I liked about the book … Writing style which I covered above. The push and pull between innocence versus the ways of the world. While I was expecting the heroine to be naive as most are in this genre, Isabelle was brave, witty, cunning and had her head screwed on right. Additionally, despite the gloomy settings contrasted with the steamy lovemaking scenes and action scenes. Well done, Bocco.
Favourite character(s) … Marcus and Isabelle. At the end of the day, it takes two to tango and their performance keeps the reader glued. I’m watching you, you’re watching me, we’re making love … it was sometimes amusing and sometimes so very beautiful.
