First paragraph:

"It was the kind of August day that hinted at monsoons, and the year was 1774, though not for very much longer. I was in the crowded bazaar of a nearly historical version of Calcutta, where my father had abandoned me. 

He hadn't abandoned me for good - not yet. He'd only gone back to the ship to make ready for the next leg of the journey: twentieth-century New York City. It was at our final destination, however, where he hoped to unmake the mistakes of his past."

I just started this book a few days ago, so I'm not too far in, but so far I am loving this book! I'd had my eye on this one for a while and had only a basic idea of what it was about, but I was still very on the fence about it. I'm really glad I picked it up because it's so unique and I am loving the entire premise!

What do you think? Would you keep reading? (And feel free to join in and make your own post!)
