    3. I received the book for free through First Reads.The first couple of pages were confusing. So much was going on & it was a bit overwhelming for the beginning of the story. After that, the book got really interesting. The author is great at creating imagery in a way that seems natural.About 3/4 of the way through, I was completely lost. There were flashbacks that seemed completely irrelevant & one chapter seemed like it was written in first person. At the very end, I felt like too much t [...]

    4. I met this author at a local book signing we were both presenting at, and the topic intrigued me. I enjoyed the story. The characters were very well developed, the mystery intriguing, and the locale was absolutely real and quite marvelous. It felt a little bit disjointed at the end because of jumping ahead in time and from various POVs, but the book held my attention and I would recommend it to a mystery or history buff! Will look for other books by this talented author. ;o)

    5. I won this book through the First Reads giveaway. I really enjoyed this book. It was captivating from the beginning. As I read it, I would think I knew where they were headed with the plot but it turned out different from what I thought. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. I would have liked to seen all loose ends tied up. But it was an enjoyable read all together!! I would definitely recommend this book.

    6. I won a copy of this novel through the First Reads giveaway here on Good Reads. I'm drawn to suspenseful historical fictions, and I loved that this novel dealt with WWI as I tend to read a lot of WWII historical fictions. Suspense was definitely throughout the book. Maybe it was a bit too suspenseful as every scene seemed to have someone jumping out or revealing a secret. The overall mystery kept my interest the whole time - it was an enjoyable read.

    7. I'm going to have images of tunnels in my mind for days. I might not ever go near one again.What a fascinating setting. Helen Sage-Brown is as endearing as she is mysterious. The story had me guessing the whole entire way; how did these characters end up connecting? I was sufficiently surprised.

    8. A story with a highly unusual plot, it is a gripping tale full of twists and turns, a little convoluted at times. Barry Brennessel is, for me, a new and exciting author whose books I would like to read more of.
