    Absolutely wonderful series

    ​This is one of my favourite series ever and as usual Lucinda Riley has written a really compelling story of family mystery starting in Scotland and ending in Australia. The series is about Pa Salt, a billionaire who adopted six baby girls from various places and brought them to live with him and Ma, their guardian at Atlantis, in his large house on Lake Geneva. Pa Salt dies at the beginning of the series and leaves each of his adopted daughters a clue to tell them where they originally came from. This time it is CeCe's (Celaeno) story, probably one of the hardest sisters to like from previous books, but as we start to get to know her better I definitely softened towards her. She has her issues that make her the way she is, and is really quite insecure and never really feels like she fits in anywhere, until she starts investigating her birth family. CeCe's story is based in Australia so she finally decides to leave London to investigate her origins, firstly stopping in Thailand for a short while to regroup, which is where she meets Ace, a guy who we know has secrets, which we find out later. I did find his part in the story slightly puzzling as his story wasn't resolved by the end of the book, which leads me to think he'll maybe reappear again in another book. CeCe eventually leaves Thailand and gets to Australia where she meets Chrissie, who works at the airport, who helps her find out more about where she came from and introduces her to a few people to help her on her way. As usual the story flips back and forth between the present day and the early 1900s, mainly in Australia and the pearling industry in Broome on the northwestern coast, where we meet the fabulous strong Kitty McBride, who is definitely the backbone of the story, and involves the aboriginal element of the story and their beliefs and just general way of life. Kitty originally visits Australia as a companion to a lady travelling from Scotland to Australia to visit her sister and her family, and ends up marrying one of the sister's twin sons, although there are complications over the years with her decision on which brother she married. The only very slight fly in the ointment for me was the last chapter, which was labelled as Chapter 37, but went onto Tiggy's story (the next book). Tiggy's book is one I'm a bit apprehensive about reading as she works at a deer sanctuary and I hate reading about animals being hurt or dying, so this kind of put a slight damper on the very end of the book for me as there was an 'incident', albeit slightly mystical. So if you're like me, or don't want to know anything about the next book, don't read the last chapter as it doesn't add anything to CeCe's story. Apart from that very slight glitch, these books are just so fascinating they are hard to put down and this one was no different from the ones before. It is amazing the amount of detail the stories go into and the research that must be needed for each book. These books are certainly very long, and so far each one of the series has been the longest book I've read each year, but it doesn't feel like it because you just want to keep reading and it seems to go really quick. Absolutely wonderful series that I can't recommend highly enough.

    Loved It!

    Loved this book, especially as the background is Australia. I have visited the country fairly recently and am very interested in the Aboriginal culture and the area around Alice Springs. It makes for very compelling reading, asdo the other books in the series, all of which I have read in the last 4 weeks! I can't bear the fact I will have to wait a few months for the next in the series! These books are the most compulsive & interesting I have read in a very long time. The amount offactual detail in each of them is incredible.

    I couldn't put it down!

    Absolutely fantastic! Love the story line, the adventure and the 'what happens next'. I hate to wait for the rest of the series but know they will be well worth it! So looking forward to finding out the finale...
