REVIEW: The Gifts

It’s the 1840’s and surgeon Edward is searching for his claim to fame. He envisions a life of fame and fortune and will do anything to get there. When he witnesses a man pulling a woman with wings out of the Thames, he becomes obsessed at being the first to report on the existence of angels. He does some pretty gruesome things as he realizes there is more than one woman in his reach with this unique physical “gift.” The story follows a handful of women, some who are bestowed upon this gift and others who are searching for information about them.

This story is interesting and unique. But it is a lot of men treating women badly. There are a few redeeming men but overall I was quite annoyed with the males in this story. I wanted more about the women and their gift. This one will be interesting to you if you like Kerri Maniscalco’s Stalking Jack the Ripper series or Dana Schwartz’s Anatomy duology.

Thanks to Sourcebooks Landmark for the gifted copy. All opinions above are my own.

This one is out tomorrow so add it to your TBR! Anything publishing this week that you’re excited for?

I am the Vice President of Clinical Affairs for a medical device company where my job is to promote the utility of the device to doctors. I have science and business degrees and have editorial experience in medical communications. In college, I served as an Editorial Assistant for a healthcare communications company and have served on two editorial boards for peer-reviewed journals. In my free time, I always have a book in my hand... or two or three! On average, I read 20 books a month. I have looked to combine two of my skill sets to review on Goodreads and promote books on Instagram that I love to other readers. I'm open to partnering with publishers as an influencer for book tours, giveaways etc.
