Lucy Aimes has always been practical. But try as she might, she can’t come up with a logical explanation for the recurring dreams that have always haunted her. Dark dreams. Dreams of a long-ago place filled with people she shouldn’t know…but does.
When her family moves to a New Orleans plantation, Lucy’s dreams become more intense, and her search for answers draws her reluctantly into the old city’s world of Voodoo and mysticism. There, Lucy finds Alex, a mysterious boy who behaves as if they’ve known each other forever. Lucy knows Alex is hiding something, and her rational side doesn’t want to be drawn to him. But she is.
As she tries to uncover Alex’s secrets, a killer strikes close to home, and Lucy finds herself ensnared in a century-old vendetta. With the lives of everyone she loves in danger, Lucy will have to unravel the mystery of her dreams before it all comes to a deadly finish.
Book Review : 1/2
~ I gigantic thank you to Flux for providing me with a copy of Sweet Unrest in exchange for an honest review ~
The one thing that you should know about me is that I love history. I know i’m not the only one, and if you have been following us for a while you will say ‘Right Meg, are you ever going to tell us anything new?’ Well maybe someday, but at least not in this review.
Maxwell artistically intertwines New Orleans dark and intriguing past with a fresh new novel that stretches a storyline through time. I loved all the elements of this story, from the eery dreams that seemed too close to truth , to the voodoo rituals that left me even more envious of the past.
Although some elements were predictable, and the L word was shared at odd moments, I was still able to appreciate and enjoy the story. It is best to go into this one without a clue of what is happening, it is all the better to watch it unravel in its awesomeness all by yourself.
Do you think you’ll pick this one up upon it’s release?
