Stasia Morineaux – No Time To Cry
This is the first book in the Nine While Nine Legacy by Stasia Morineaux and I can’t wait to read the next.
Here’s the book blurb:
Isabelle has life right where she wants it after recovering from heartbreak and deceit—she has the perfect apartment, amazing friends, a flourishing career, and financial security…
…Until she meets Death’s right-hand man one fateful night, and events take place which alter that life, sending her spiraling into one which is beyond her wildest imaginings.
And she is no longer Isabelle.
She’s thrust quickly into the most secretive inner-workings of Death itself, as well as an otherworldly dominion of ancient Celtic magic, and beings that we were taught as children were only fictional creations of wildly whimsical minds.
She yearns for the now unmistakable simplicity of her old life; this one is full of dangers, unanswered questions and cryptic dreams. And whispers, haunting whispers in her mind that send shivers through her…but in the most agreeable way.
After one particularly anomalous dream in which she learns of the Nine While Nine Legacy, things get truly precarious.
Now someone sees her as a risk …and wants to eliminate her.
But she falls under the protection of her guardian—unless she leaves his territory—which is the one thing wants the most…and wants the least.
What if everything you believed to be true, you discovered to be false?
What if everything you believed to be false, you discovered to truly be….?

A great story. Read it, whether you like fantasy or not. It won’t matter, you’ll love it.
What an outstanding book. When I first read ‘Twilight’, my wife asked me what it was about and it was hard to explain. While I could have said it was about Vampires and Werewolves, it would have done it a disservice. So she asked me, what’s happening? My answer was it’s hard to explain. Nothing but everything. I’m totally gripped.
I hope you know what I mean by that, assuming you’ve read Twilight, because I need to describe this book in the same way. (It’s not the same style as Twilight, I’m just talking about the way I would describe it). It’s beautifully written, the storyline burns at what seems like a low level, but it is thoroughly absorbing and gripping. The characters are great and you are desperate to find out the truth along with Isabelle. I’m not going to tell you much more than that, because I won’t do the book justice, as I explained above. It is just a great story, well crafted, confusing at times (intentionally so – Isabelle doesn’t know what’s happening to her and you are following her efforts to find out) and sets up a great series.
I will say that I’m not a lover of fantasy novels and don’t tend to read them, so I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story, like I do. I can’t wait for the follow-up. Hurry up! 🙂
