Guild of Immortal Women - David Alan Morrison, H.L. Melvin

A group of somewhat different women, a mysterious tapestry, two dead bodies and Abbey who's lost her memory make for a nice fantasy mystery.


After her 'Aunts' take her home from the mental hospital in which she was hospitalized early so she can continue her treatment in their home, the Bastille, it's immediately clear that there is more to it. Much more. It's very important that she remembers, but what?


It was definitely a read that kept me interested all along (but it was only a relatively short novel). I liked the story about the time travel and the tapestry. I was a bit less taken in with the story that took place in the mental hospital, all the patients there seemed like slapstick characters made for a quick laugh (that wasn't there). The same goes with the numerous lesbian jokes, it could have been a bit less.


But the story in itself was quite interesting and it kept me guessing for some time. The ending felt a bit rushed and not everything is explained by the end of the story. I think there will probably be a sequel...


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
