The year is 2073, the location is Blessed Island. Eric is a visiting journalist who is on assignment to investigate this strange island where it is rumored that no one seems to age. While on this island Eric’s mind begins to cloud over, and he forgets his reason for being there. On top of this, he has this overwhelming feeling that he has been there before. As his story ends, six more are intertwined into the same setting. Although the times and characters may change, the mystery is still present.

This book was fantastic! It is almost impossible to say anything of substance about the book without giving it away, so I’m just not going to. I will say that the writing is impeccable, beautiful, and gripping. I would have enjoyed each story separately, but together they become so much more. Once I finished I seriously contemplating just turning to page one and starting over again. This is one I will definitely buy! Read it, that is all.
