The Collector of Dying Breaths
Book Description: "A lush and imaginative novel that crisscrosses time as a perfumer and a mythologist search for the fine line between potion and poison, poison and passion…and past and present."
Well, if you like this kind of book, you'll love this one. I don't. I didn't.
This is just my opinion, and I realize M.J. Rose has a many devoted fans. Sounded interesting, but didn't appeal to me. The Collector of Dying Breaths (huh?), is part of the Reincarnationist series by Rose.
Not much worked for me on this one: not the characters, the premise, or the frequent sex scenes. Billed as mystery and suspense; just as much fantasy and romance.
Whenever I'm truly disappointed in a book, I check other reviews. It appears I stand alone in my opinion. But I stand firm.
