Summary

It always started like this, a pulse inside me, like a warning before the tide surged, roared... and froze everything. 

Twenty-year old Emma just landed in Rome, to find the father who walked out of her life more than a decade ago and was too busy eating pizza to call. Traveling with her is a secret she's carried alone since childhood: sometimes, around her, time stops. People and cars freeze, rain hangs still in the air and there's only her left in the silence. 

To make things worse, instead of her dad, Em runs into a past she'd rather forget in the person of Lily, her stepsister. Kind, beautiful, Harvard honors student Lily: the perfect daughter Em never was. As the two of them reconnect, Em starts to pick up some creepy vibes from Katharos, the mysterious archaeological foundation Lily works for - and more specifically the ancient stone table they're digging up near the coliseum....

Faust, the blind hobo Em keeps running into, might be the key to piercing Katharos's secrets. Actually, he might even have something to do with that pesky time-freezing thing. With Lily's life on the line and no one else to turn to, Em chooses to trust this unlikely ally, but behind his charming smile and lunar antics, the guy comes with some serious fine print.... Contains mature themes.

Another amazing work by Camilla Monk

Having listened, repeatedly, to the "Spotless" series by this author/narrator team I was very excited to add this to my Library. It is a brilliant and ingenious written work of art, incorporating myth, seasoned with history and modern tech, and delivered with the expertise that only Amy McFadden can deliver. The ingredients are immortals, gods, love, guilt, rejection, and cats. And possibly a platypus with teeth 😀

A fantastic book by a fantastic author

I absolutely love this author, narrator, and this new book. Emma goes to Italy to visit her father and had quite an adventure. Strong heroine with a meet up of Greek mythology. This was such a joy listening to this book. I highly recommend!

So good!

The story was great. The characters were really well developed. Can’t wait for the next one.

Not. Good

Where do I begin? The protagonist constant sarcasm, snark, and swearing was too much for me. I didn’t like her or root for her.

I also found the constant descriptions of someone’s quivering lips, shaky legs, twitching eyebrows, etc. to be overdone. Emma’s chest was always heaving or aching. Ugh. I got through this one for a book club. Otherwise would have returned it after the first chapter.

Camilla Monk does it again!

I first fell in love with Camilla Monk's work with her Spotless series (if you have been living under a rock and haven't read them yet, GO DO IT NOW). But knowing that Still would be very different from her first series I did listen with some trepidation but she did not disappoint. Her trademark humor is still evident despite the darker and grittier undertones of this book and she really did her research! I adore all things Greek Mythology growing up so this was quite the treat! I am awaiting the next book in this series with bated breath. Highly recommend.
