This was a free ARC for Tracy Sumner team.
Overall it was a nice story but I thought a little long for the content.
Some interesting use of vocabulary – I liked the use of ‘antique’ words within a modern phrasing.
Clues were left for the next books in the series – so who was the boy they couldn’t save? And why did Flynn take it so hard? Flynn’s book is coming next .
Harbingdon is nice idea as a harbour but also perhaps the harbinger – foreteller – of a potential future – a sign of what is to come, both are hidden in the name – was this deliberate?
POF location 700. mention of a cardinal bird – in the UK. almost certainly not as they are extremely rare visitors, and the twitchers would be going mad. if it was one it would be an escapee from captivity. wouldn’t last long in the wild in UK.
