I'm sorry but i had another book to read and the review is late. So, i actually liked the book, despite the fact that this is not my genre of books. So, Hope. Does she move to Ottawa?

Terminally Ill, my third Hope Sze novel (though I still dont know how to say her last name), show to me that Melissa Yi, is getting better as a writer.

This was a fun novel with a combined sense of frenetic fun, mystery and intrigue. The multiple plot-lines and complexity of Hope Sze's personal relationships, family relationships and work relationships intertwine in a unique and fulfilling way.

While Hope Sze contemplates the world of magic with a critical eye towards solving the attempted murder of an escape artist, Yi works her own sense of magic in creating inter-layered storylines that beautifully come together at the end.

On to other books now :)
