Love and World Eaters by Tom C. Underhill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for review.
This was certainly a unique perspective on a very old mystery. Aliah, a young woman working in a museum, is affected by a bone fragment from an artifact. Through its workings she is able to see the history of any object she touches and finds herself immersed in the mystery of who killed the father of Alexander the Great. During her sessions with the artifact we are shown scenes of such detail and emotion that we feel as if we are seeing them which really brings this story to life.
The character of Aliah is revealed gradually over the course of the story. We learn about her as she is learning about herself. The insights into the history of the artifact give her an understanding of her own history and her own family issues.
I really enjoyed this story and would recommend it to anyone that loves a good historical fiction with a bit of sci fi thrown in for good measure.
