Review/Recommend: Seven Sisters by Lucinda Riley

As the days are getting colder and darker, it is the perfect time of year to snuggle up in front of the fire with a good book. I love reading and getting lost in a different world, so much so that I can relate to the quote by William Feather 'Finishing a good book is like leaving a good friend.' 

When I find an author I like, I never want to put the book down. This is something that I have experienced time and time again with Lucinda Riley. She is definitely one of my favourite authors. I find that her books, that often switch between two time periods, are the type of books that make you happy to wake up early, or go to bed extra late, just so you can read a few chapters more. 

I could not recommend Lucinda Riley's Seven Sisters series enough.

The books begin with six sisters returning to their home Atlantis, on the shores of Lake Geneva, upon the sudden death of their father, Pa Salt. Each of the girls Maia, Alcyone (Ally), Asterope (Star) Celaeno (Cece), Taygete (Tiggy) and Electra are adopted and in Pa Salt's will they are given one clue to their past as well as a set of coordinates to aid them with the discovery of their past.

Each book takes you through an epic journey of discovery, reaching the four corners of the world. The stories are compellingly told. Riley manages to use the same starting point but tell completely different stories with the same amount of intrigue and excitement as the last. I'm quite sure that the first book in this series, The Seven Sisters, is why I am so desperate to stand next to Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janerio.

They are a perfect gift for Christmas...and the fourth instalment, The Pearl Sister, is being released next week on 2nd November.

What are some of your favourite? All book recommendations are welcomed!
