The Invisible Life of Abbie LaRue

Author : V. E. Schwab

Genre : Fantasy

This is such a surprising and inventive story that stretches across centuries. The writing is beautiful. Here’s an example: “March is such a fickle month. It is the seam between winter and spring—though seam suggests an even hem, and March is more like a rough line of stitches sewn by an unsteady hand, swinging wildly between January gusts and June greens. You don’t know what you’ll find until you step outside. It makes sense that she was born on the 10th of March, right along the ragged seam.”

Adeline LeRue is born in 1691. At age 23 is already too old to wed. She decides she does not want to marry, and makes a deal with the darkness between stars that gives her immortality with an unexpected twist—the minute she leaves someone’s presence, they will forget her. There is a marvelous thread about the language of eyes throughout the book that leads one on to a satisfying ending.
