The Unsacred Gift by C.S. Dorsey was a bit of an interesting book for me. What I mean is this, I loved the plot and the characters. They were both superb; but for some reason I really had a hard time with the way the book was written. I don't know if it's the way the characters talk to each other or what, but I just struggled a little bit getting into the dialogue of the book. That's not to say that I didn't like the book. I really enjoyed reading this book. The plot was very intriguing and I didn't see the ending coming at all. Sissy is a great character to get to know (despite the fact that I couldn't stand the way that she called her mother "Ma" throughout the entire book).
Dorsey does a fantastic job of plot development. When I first started reading I thought that the days of Sissy's life were a little too detailed for my liking, but as I got farther into the book I realized that it was necessary to have all of the information that you were being given. So, the plot is well developed and flows very well.
The characters in this book were fascinating. Just when you thought you had everyone figured out then a new little twist or turn would come into play that would have you rethinking your whole mindset for the book. I really love books that keep me on my toes when it comes to the characters. This book does exactly that. If you are looking for a book that is a quick read with a great story line then this is the book for you. I would recommend this book to anyone that's into ghost's and other-worldly stuff.
Overall rating: 4/5
