This insomniac's opinion:
I truly enjoyed this author's novel This Raging Light, of which this novel is a companion to. If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend that you pick it up.
While I admit that I did not enjoy this novel as thoroughly as This Raging Light, it was a fascinating read. Estelle Laure writes with beautiful, flowery language and is swept away into a story in which the author is unfraid to tackle such subjects as death, the afterlife and recovery after tragedy.
I think that young girls and women especially will enjoy this YA read.
Worth staying up all night to read?
Yes, particularly if you are a young woman.
