In a world where the past is a mystery, each new day feels the same as the last, and before is blasphony, all appears lost. But Simon Wythern, a young man who arrives in London seeking the truth about what really happened to his parents, discovers he has a gift that could change all of this forever.
This was a really strange book, its basically a dystopia though it doesn’t feel like a dystopia. In this world people have forgotten how to use written words so they communicate in music. This does mean that there are many musical terms in this book and I did spend a good while googling musical terms. It was an interesting book but I didn’t enjoy it. I feel that its one of those books you need to read more than once to understand fully. I also have to mention the cover which is really beautiful. Its one of the nicest book covers I have seen.
