After this book was highly recommended by many people, I was excited to read it. The first hundred and thirty pages were very slow and I wasn't sure I should keep reading. However, it got really interesting after that and I raced to finish the book. Keep reading if you aren't sure you're into it!
This book follows Addie through over three hundred years of her life since she made a deal with a god. She has many hopeless, ugly moments when she's getting used to stealing and tricking people. Part of her curse is that she can't leave a mark on the world directly, but many art pieces are influenced by her. Nobody can remember her after she leaves their sight. That is, until she meets a young man who also made a deal with the god that answers after dark. They struggle to accept the reality of their punishments while in love. It ends with a twist!
