Paullina Simons, Author of “The Tiger Catcher The End of Forever Saga” has written the first part of a trilogy. This is an intense, edgy, captivating, dramatic, enthralling, and emotional read. The Genres for this book are Fiction, with some input of Magical Realism, Romance, Historical Fiction, Time Travel, Fairy Tale, and Adventure. I had a difficult time trying to decide on what best genre fits, and I think a case can be made for all those mentioned. I found this to be a difficult and thought-provoking read as I was reading the second half of the novel. There are different time periods, and the story takes place in Los Angeles and England. The author describes are characters as complex and complicated. Some are obsessed, quirky and dysfunctional.
Julian writes a column for a newspaper in Los Angeles, has good friends and seems to be doing well. He meets an aspiring actress, Josephine and immediately becomes obsessed and drawn to her. There seems to be some magical essence that brings there world together. Julian is determined to spend his life with Josephine, no matter what. Just like in the song, “I Will Follow Him” sung by Little Peggy March, Julian will follow Josephine anyway, anytime, anyhow.
This is a book of twists and turns. Is Josephine who she says she is? There are deep dark secrets that can lead anywhere. I would recommend this novel for those readers who enjoy a dark, intense, thought-provoking novel.
