FULL REVIEW HERE: http: //literarycafe.weebly.com/home/a ... I heard from many fellow readers that Against the Tide is their favorite Elizabeth Camden novel, now I an honestl see why.
There 're many points I loved, and far fewer I disliked.
Neve, as indee, let 's begi with my list of loves: -languages I do n't forge about you, but I 've basically been interested in learning languages.
-drug useI believe I should be correct in saying this is sixth novel I 've read that deals directly with drugs for the main portion of the plot.
-consequences of drugsAfter becoming addicted to drugs, Lydia ( toward the very nd of this trilogy) goes through rehab and experiences pretty brutal withdrawals.
;) -motives Bane ( the protagonist/love interest) has a purpose.
drive of the ovel is clear, and it 's excellently chosen.
I eve love that Lydia recognizes Bane has such a strong purpose in life ( to eradicate the lethal opium trade) and is almost disheartened, to a degree.
