The Secrets of Life and Death Review

Hello, hope all is well today I am going to be doing another book review from blogging for books called The Secret Of Life and Death By. Rebecca Alexander, I received this book for free for my honest opinion.

Book Description

In modern day England, Professor Felix Guichard is called in to identify occult symbols found on the corpse of a young girl. His investigation brings him in contact with a mysterious woman, Jackdaw Hammond, who guards a monumental secret--She's Dead. Or she would be, were it not for magic which has artificially extended her life. But someone else knows her secret. Someone very old and very powerful, who won't rest until they've taken the magic that keeps her alive....

In Krakow in 1585, Dr John Dee, the Elizabethan Alchemist and Occultist, and his assistant Edward Kelley have been summoned by the King of Poland to save the life of his niece, the infamous Countess Elisabeth Bathory. But they soon realize that the only thing worse than the Countess' malady, is the magic that might be able to save her...
As Jackdaw and Felix race to uncover the truth about the person hunting her, it becomes clear that the answers they seek can only be found in the ancient diary of John Dee's assistant, Edward Kelley. Together they must solve a mystery centuries in the making, or die trying.

My Opinion

I was very interested in reading this book because of the title it seemed like it would be a good read based on the title. I have never read a book by Rebecca Alexander so I was interested in reading a book from another author. My opinion of the book was good I really liked the book, it was a very interesting it was like it was set in two different times like the present day and then in the past.

I really like how the author switched back in forth to the present and then in the past I like  Jackdaw Hammond, who's dead I think, I also like Elizabeth who is a countess and There's also Felix Guichard, a professor who is investigating the death of a girl at the train station. 

I really love the fact that when I started reading I was very into the book I didn't want to put it down. I really love how the author describes the characters I feel like a got a good explanation of who the characters was and what the book was all about I really love this book and will definitely tell my friends about  this great book.

I received a copy of this from Blogging For Books  in exchange for a honest review.  The above is my own opinion.
