Review for The Silver Chain by Primula Bond
I liked the story, but I felt disconnected to the characters. The writing was odd at times, and too wordy. The writing seemed erratic. It felt old, the mention of modern items was weird. I kept forgetting that this was current. The setting felt gothic, which I ended up liking. I like the events of the story, and I tried to feel emotional for the characters, I just couldn't quite manage it. I enjoyed the idea of this book, so I will read the next book, can't leave a story unread. I'm hoping that the writing will smooth out, and the characters will grow. I have hope for The Silver Chain, just make the characters more human.
