GATHERING DEEP by Lisa Maxwell is a compelling, & beautifully written sequel to SWEET UNREST. I thoroughly enjoyed the continuation of this story from Chloe's perspective. I loved learning what really makes Thisbe tick. Maxwell does a spectacular job of establishing the personality of a city. Every page dripped with the historic, spooky, and downright other-worldly atmosphere of New Orleans. The arc of the story was well crafted, as well. Definitely recommend. Look forward to reading more from this author.
I hadn’t read “Sweet Unrest”, the prequel yet, when I started this book. However, I could follow most of the story. Chloe was an all right character, but it took a while before I could connect to her. The story itself was intriguing though, and I finished this in one sitting. If not for how flat the characters were, and how hard it was to connect to the heroine, I would’ve given this a higher rating. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
