It all starts in prehistoric times when a young man and a young woman fight over a precious jewel. From then on, they share a special connection that is linked with green stones. Each time they are reincarnated as different beings, they are both undeniably attracted to each other when their paths cross, no matter the obstacles; but each time, their love never has a happy ending. Their affinity is put to many tests, but will it all work out in the end? Will true love prevail?
Yay for good books! I didn't really have any expectations coming into this book because I hadn't heard anything about it. It really surprised me though. It has a very unique plot line that draws you in immediately. The stories of the two souls are so intertwined and complex, and as the book progresses, you really start to root for them to work it out in the end. I loved how you got to experience different time periods and circumstances. And in each of the stories, everything is somehow connected. Like, in the first prehistoric story, the man gets stabbed in the head and the side and in later bodies, he has headaches and even experiences a ruptured kidney. And the girl has a beautiful singing voice as well as a lame foot that turns up in each of her reincarnated forms. I also liked the little twists that the author threw into the story. They really helped the book not seem so predictable and showed many some of the many different angles that love can have. One of the aspects of the story I particularly liked was that you got to meet the two side characters who have to work out their part in the story for themselves. You get to see the smaller characters really grow into themselves as well as the more important characters. The small complaint I have about this book, is that it is confusing. And you kind of have to expect that if there's around ten different stories that are intertwined in one book! It was good though, how in the end everything got unraveled and you could see how all the different parts were related. I felt like this was a well though out, well crafted story. It immediately drew me in and kept me entranced for the whole book. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a quick, captivating read!
