This book was a wonderful surprise.在捡起来之前，我已经读过柯斯塔斯·克罗米达斯的另外两本书了。I'd loved them both,finding the common threads of tragic love and twists of fate utterly compelling.阿瑟拉的故事情节同样引人入胜，令人心碎，但以不同的方式，并真正突出了作者的其他小说。
From the first few pages of Athora,I was drawn in and couldn't put it down.This is a full-blown murder mystery and one of the best I've ever read.Being highly reminiscent of Dan Brown's world-famous bestsellers,真的，the only difference was the setting – a tiny Greek island in this case.Non-stop action and intrigue kept me turning the pages insatiably,down to the reveal of the killer at the very end.The brutal murder scenes are chilling and quite masterful.但比谋杀更重要的是，it was the unprecedented storm that plagued the tiny island of Athora that set the mood for me and swept me away as I read.
Highly descriptive writing from an author who seems to own a magic magnifying glass that allows him to look deep into the psyche of his characters.Being lifelike beyond measure,写完这本书后的几天里，我很难让他们远离我的思想。不管你喜欢神秘谋杀还是希腊岛上的书，this is a must and,most likely,your next favorite read!!
A real page-turner!!
