My friend and crit partner Jaye recommend this novel on Twitter a few weeks ago, and I am so glad she did. Marie Lamba has crafted a world of romance, villains, and a healthy dose of messing with the space time continuum. I couldn’t put this book down!
Michelle and her father are starting over in England. Maybe here, no one will know that her brother is a diagnosed schizophrenic, or that her mother is a self-proclaimed psychic. But when Michelle starts hearing voices and seeing visions of a handsome medieval man named Christopher, she fears that she has followed in her brother’s footsteps. It doesn’t help that the first time she saw Christopher was when she was drawing: his image came to her, and since living in her sketchbook, he has started to take shape, pulling Michelle back in time to his dangerous reality. Torn between fear of insanity and the intense emotions she feels whenever she’s with Christopher, Michelle must navigate her modern life and Christopher’s ancient one. But when her actions in the past start to impact the present, Michelle is faced with a choice: give up on love or fight to save a man she isn’t even sure exists.
If you’re looking for tension, history, and a flawed cast of characters, you’ll fall in love with Drawn.
