This is Robert Parry's third novel, and in my opinion it is his best work to date! I did not think it was possible to top his first two novels, but he did! I savored every word of this wonderful book,and since I finished reading it, I miss it so much. While I was reading this book, I would look forward to getting back to it all day long. Now that it is finished, I truly miss Matthew Wildish and all of his friends, as I felt they had become a part of my life. I guess you could say that I miss them like I would old friends.
Wildish is full of surprises. It will truly shock you in places, and in ways that you cannot imagine. But, they are great surrprises, the kind that makes you suck in your breath sometimes, and the kind that makes you laugh out loud sometimes.The excitement level in this book is high, and it will keep you wanting to know more from one chapter to the next. The story is perfectly balanced with intrigue, humor, excitment, and mystery. Add to that perfect balance, the beautiful imagery portrayed throughout this book and it all adds up to being one of the best books that I have ever read! I promise that you will not want to put it down! Also, it is a nice chunky book, so you can have the pleasure of reading it for at least a few days. But,no matter how fast or slow you read it, you are likely going to miss it when it is finshed.
Matthew Wildish is a Master wig Maker and a sometime poet in London society during 1745. Matthew is on a personal quest for discovering love, not just any love, but love that transcends reality. On his quest, he finds himself in some pretty touchy situations. Just when you think he is done for, somehow he wiggles his way out of trouble. However, the wiggiling out of troubles are some of the best parts of the story.
This is the perfect read to end this Mardi Gras season with because it is full of beautiful Masquerade Balls and fireworks. The women are beautifully dressed and the men are handsomely dressed, along with beautiful scenery, the story provides a perfect mixture of historical fiction, costumes, and interesting characters to keep you turning those pages. This book is about love, however, it has so much more to offer than just romance. In fact, I think it is one of the BEST books that I have ever read!
