Basilisk's Creed Omnibus by Eme Strife

"She couldn't go just yet." -Eme Strife, The Basilisk's Creed Omnibus
WARNING: Not for younger audiences

Twenty-three year old Eli thought that moving to San Francisco would change her life. It has, but maybe not for the better. Struggling to survive in a world that suddenly makes sense and with a recurring dream that she's not so sure are dreams, Eli is trying to keep afloat. Find the official description on Goodreads.

I'm gonna get what I didn't really like or thought needed work out of the way before jumping into the great things about this book. One thing that I occasionally noticed(more like once in a blue moon) is that while the writing was good for the most part, there were occasional spots where things were choppy or word choice could have been better. But for the most part everything worked, you could read without being suddenly jolted out of the book(unless your phone went off or your alarm). 

We get perspective from both Matt's and Eli's perspectives and occasionally there's overlap between the two. While the dialogue would be repetitive(although we don't really see this as Eme Strife doesn't really include that much of the dialogue in the second perspective) it was a completely different view on the same event. It definitely made you think and allowed you a chance to see why someone was acting how they were. Which kept things moving for sure!

Another thing I liked but also didn't like about The Basilisk's Creed Omnibus is that there were a lot of questions that kept popping up. If you'd get an answer you'd just find a new question. While it was fun and I liked that, I also don't like that? Mostly because I can be curious but than sometimes I'm just like no, I don't want to be. But if you really like having questions that seem to just keep coming than this is definitely your book.

The Basilisk's Creed Omnibus was a good read, and it left more to be told. It released on the 19th of September and you can now purchase it at the following links: AmazonBarnes and Noble, and Kobo Books.
