A quick, engrossing read in the same vein as The Da Vinci Code, but the plot and characters are stronger.

I actually enjoyed the 2nd novel in this series more than the first novel (The Reincarnationist). I’ve always felt a connection to Beethoven and his music. I was drawn in by key piece of the puzzle throughout the book. However, unlike the first book in the series, there were fewer flashbacks and as a result less of a connection with the past life memories breathing life and mystery surrounding the memory object in question throughout the novel.

Of the three books in this series to date, this one is definitely the weakest. Too many characters to follow and not enough connection between the multitude of characters and their past/present lives. Overall, a disappointment compared to books one and two.

Rose continues to move away from the elements in this series I loved the most–the historical flashbacks. While the story did keep me reading, I wanted more of the flashbacks that connected the individuals in the present. Because of this lack of connection to the past, I found the ending unbelievable and hard to connect to.
Book was a Good Reads First Reads giveaway.
