“Whatever that family gives you is nothing compared to what you will lose.”
That line in THE ANCESTOR by Danielle Trussoni grabbed my attention and made me what to read what would happen to the protagonist Alberta Monte. It’s a brilliant mixture of gothic, mystery, and suspense with a dark family history at its core. Trusson pulled me in with her first-person point of view, which is not my favorite, and with eerie twists, unexpected revelations, and an ancient history family lineage with a darker past, I was enthralled the whole time.
