Preet’s Rating    

I've been thinking about this book, days after I finished reading it. I'm pondering the twists, reveals, and ending and trying to work it all out. In a Garden Burning Gold's beginning is an attention grabbing one, but not too much later I found myself worried about the slowing pace. It wasn't until after about 25% when I noticed things picked up again, and I'm glad I stuck with the book.

I was really impressed by Rory Power's world building and how well the story unfurled. I thought I knew the twists, but even then I was surprised time and time again. And the characters! I found myself enamored with the twins, who also happen to be the narrators. It was fascinating seeing their twin dynamic and how it changed as the story progressed. I really loved the themes explored in the story. I don't know if Rory Power's next book is a continuation of this story, a spin-off, or something entirely new, but I know I'll be looking forward to whatever it is.
