Kayla Derbyshire, January 7, 2012 (view all comments by Kayla Derbyshire)
This book did many things right and only a few things wrong.

Natalie, the narrator of this book, is mute. That's right. The main character of this story cannot communicate with others without writing everything down unless they know sign language. This in itself caught my attention from the very beginning - how many fantasy romance novels are being written nowadays with a mute character?

The male love interest, Lord Denbury, is not your typical man. He's been trapped in a panting by a demon, and only Natalie has the power to travel between the real world and the world of his painting. When the demon that trapped Lord Denbury there begins to commit nightly murders, it's up to Natalie, Denbury, and a few friends to stop it.

The plot itself is quite original, unlike anything I've ever read before, which was a lovely change. The characters were all different, nicely 'painted' into this book. From the wise old Mrs. Northe to the chatty Maggie, all of the characters drew my attention.

Unfortunately, there were a few big questions that I still had after finishing the book - namely, why Denbury? A rather short explanation was given, but I was not at all satisfied with that. It seems to me that if you're going to shove someone into a painting and then use their possessed body to murder people, you should have a stronger reason for it than what is given in this book.

I would still recommend it though, to anyone who enjoys a quick and interesting read.
