The Forgotten: Aten’s Last Queen
Westhall has created well-drawn characters and dialogue so natural that it makes the reader feel like an eavesdropper. The plot’s (very) occasional lags are worth overlooking because of the reflective residue it leaves behind, giving Healing Ruby staying power that lingers long after the final chapter ends.
“The Fool’s Truth” will appeal to fans of suspenseful thrillers with multiple layered story lines, so long as they are not too discerning when it comes to the nuances of the writing style, the depth of the characterizations, or the contrivances of the plot.
