Host Writer (The Archivist, #1) is Kindle I seldom, if ever, give a review....but since the author of this book is a friend and neighbor of my daughter, Tammi ....and it was at her request I read the book to begin with....here I go! Being our family genealogist these last 40+ years makes this book even more interesting as the thoughts of being able to talk too and see not only historic figures but the salt of the earth people in ones own family was a very interesting concept in itself....let alone the idea of "Archivists" living among us. Although at times I thought Zoe came across as a bit of a dimwit, I also reminded myself of her age and even that made some sense......while I'm usually not one for delayed confirmations of affections in the books I read .......this too had a purpose in this book. Knowing, since it's stated on the cover as "Book 1", that there would be issues left hanging at the end...I found the ending not quite what I expected but am looking forward to the next book nonetheless. There are many avenues the next books can take and I hope they jump into the stories they continue to tell with the quickness and attachment to the topic as this book started with......and for that reason I rated it a 4 out of 5. A book for all ages and it hooked me in the first ten pages.. When Zoe Edevane takes time away from Oxford to fulfill her mum s dying wish all she knows about family and life changes forever Her mother s peculiar wish requires Zoe to obtain a grave rubbing in the dead of night Everything about Zoe s existence is altered when she meets the unearthly owner of the grave and one of his descendents, a mysterious and handsome young man wWhen Zoe Edevane takes time away from Oxford to fulfill her mum s dying wish all she knows about family and life changes forever Her mother s peculiar wish requires Zoe to obtain a grave rubbing in the dead of night Everything about Zoe s existence is altered when she meets the unearthly owner of the grave and one of his descendents, a mysterious and handsome young man who saves her life They convince her that she belongs to an ancient and secret society of Archivists, who interview the dead These Archivists keep the world s secrets and history preserved in hidden collections around the world Members of their society begin to mysteriously disappear This discovery launches Zoe into a quest filled with secrets and murder, as she runs from those who are intent on abusing the extraordinary powers of the Host Writers.. The best Book Host Writer (The Archivist, #1) Received the book for free through the Goodreads giveaway.Host Writer made a very fascinating book with an excellent blurb! A book about a special select group of humans who are able to raise spirits and interview them and write down their history. The book proves to be just as interesting and gripping. The characters are good, the plot nicely developed and really well written. There is a nice mix of description and dialogue. I feel that the ending could have been a bit tighter. The ending leaves it very open for a series continuation which I have to admit I'm very much looking forward to a book number 2!
