Fascinating concept and very well written
This is the first book by this author and I really was not aware that it was. The story of Matt Turner having an extraordinary gift is both astonishing and depressing. He wants to help with archaeology and "carbon" dating objects, but he also dislikes what it does to him. He also hates that he can't touch anything without seeing it's history.
This story was superbly written and I could not put it down. It was a very gripping read and I really got into the story. I was so impressed with the writing and liked the story so much that I told my husband (who almost never reads) that he should read it. He finally did (probably to shut me up) and he was actually happy he listened to me. The book does end in a cliffhanger so beware but I wouldn't let that deter you from reading it. You won't be sorry.
