I'm so glad you're enjoying it. What are your usual genres?
I was initially drawn to this book on the B&N website. I saw that it was going to be the book featured in New Reads, so I decided to take a look. It sounded like a very interesting book; just what I was looking for. ( I was looking for something different from my usual genres).
So far, I am enjoying the book immensely. The story is flowing smoothly and I like the character development. I find Tor and Rose to be a bit naive for taking off for India with little knowledge of what awaits them. But, on the other hand, I think they are quite brave. I think Viva is an interesting character and one I look forward to finding out more about as I get further into the book.

I saw this book featured on the Barnes & Noble website. I was immediately intrigued because my family and I had visited India last year. I also love to read historical fiction. So this read seemed to be a perfect fit.
I am enjoying getting to know the characters in this story. On the surface, the 4 main characters seem to be shallow and naive. The more I read, the more I discover about them. Each one has their own demon they seem to be battling. I am looking forward to getting further along on the story.
