Immortal Architects by Paige Orwin is the sequel to her first book The Interminables…and it’s amazing! She did not disappoint at all. Unlike some authors who start out strong and end up going not at all where you expected (or enjoyed). Edmund and Istvan are still the main characters of this series and they are so wonderfully tortured.
I loved it – especially her introduction of a new character that’s transgender. She only has a minor role at this point, but I like her so far. And I just love how matter-of-factly Orwin presents it too. The story was also…very life like. It was basically a conglomeration of one big mistake followed by an even bigger one and, boy, does it take you for a ride.
Again, the dynamic between the two main characters is absolutely stunning. And heartbreaking and moving and just…gorgeous. Despite how episodic Orwin’s books have been so far, I just love her writing. Absolutely stunning and very realistic (ironically).
So, she doesn’t have anything else out yet, but Paige Orwin has been officially added to my favorite author’s list.
