    "The layered meanings run deep in this book. No wonder nearly every advanced review uses the word “intricate” to describe this masterpiece. The German boy and his sister discover an old radio, where they hear science lessons from afar. There are lessons about the brain, sitting inside the darkness of our skull, interpreting light; there are lessons about coal having been plants living millions of years ago, absorbing light, now buried in darkness; lessons about light waves that we cannot see—all applicable as the story unfolds. Readers will appreciate the short, almost lyrical chapters of alternating characters. The author helps by italicizing earlier mentioned quotes and then leaving almost every chapter closing with a message to ponder. Take for example: “a real diamond is never perfect”, “open your eyes and see what you can with them before they close forever”, and “the entropy of a closed system never decreases”. All of this is explained in a natural way, but never given out in an assuming manner. The story flows and draws your heart into its deep meaning."

    "I was a bit hesitant to start this book because it seem like a piece of light fan fiction. But I am really glad I did. The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King is a fresh, thrilling, and exciting book that is tremendous fun to read. The only complaint I have is that I feel there should have been more focus on the villain who is a complex and entertaining character but is not well defined. I recommend this book for anyone who loves Sherlock Holmes or strong, intelligent, female characters."

    "Released in 1988, this 2003 reprinting brings this classic story back into the world again. That isn’t a bad thing though! The novel is very good and you will definitely have a hard time putting it down. I know I did! "

    "Wonderfully transporting novel, award-winning author Karen Essex turns a timeless classic inside out, spinning a haunting, erotic, and suspenseful story of eternal love and possession. Shadowy banks of the river Thames to the wild and windswept Yorkshire coast, Dracula’s eternal muse, Mina Murray, vividly recounts the intimate details of what really transpired between her and the Count—the joys and terrors of a passionate affair that has linked them through the centuries, and her rebellion against her own frightening preternatural powers."

    "This book is just as good if not better than watching the movie. I would rather let my imagination dictate the scenes while reading this book than having someone else tell me what I should be seeing! I would HIGHLY suggest getting this book!"

    "Pretty slow, but very good. The setting for me is getting a bit old as so many books have been done for this time frame, but it was an important time. Good book, great characters."
