“We need to talk,” Tal said. Then I knew it was going to go badly. ‘We need to talk’ is the conversational equivalent of walking into your basement without turning on the light, on a dark and stormy night, when a known psychopath is on the loose. You might as well cut to the chase and slit your own throat.
Chloe Diaz assumed three things: that when Tal said that she was one of The People sent from heaven to maintain the cosmic balance, it was code for ‘I’m a pamphlet distributing, incense burning, religious weirdo;’ that the gorgeous Seth Wilks would never be her soul mate and that she’d never have to choose between them. Chloe was wrong.
Now the future of the world is in her hands, but what if price is too great to pay?
Life in the Palace had a very unique storyline. It’s mixture of realistic fiction and fantasy all tied together in one novel, provided real characters soon to be on a real mission. Chloe is the main character and soon finds herself in a world of huge changes. College life, a new love interest, a culture that goes far beyond what the reader expects. The cover of this novel caught my attention and its attention to two different worlds was very fascinating. The author took a lot of time to really build up to the focus of the story. Being a big fan of the Twilight Saga, I found it a bit distracting to read in the beginning of the story several mentions of the Twilight Saga’s main characters. However, the story did begin to flow quickly once the reader nears the middle of the novel.
Ms. Green’s writing style is smooth, with many transitions throughout. She truly provided the reader with believable characters through her descriptive writing and dialogue. The whole concept of the different cultures , and the mission at hand was very different and took some time to truly grasp. But the inspirational twist and the relationship building of the main characters was well worth it. I’m glad to know that this novel has a book number 2 in the horizon. I tend to reread a lot books. This will be one that I’ll reread right before book 2 comes out to ensure that I’m on track with all the details of this different novel. This is a journey to the Palace that you won’t want to miss.
