Hard to Die provides a new take on the uncharted fate of Theodosia Burr Alston
I have read a good number of books lately. But nothing like Hard to Die. It takes readers on a pretty amazing journey. The story is tells deals with many different elements and does its best to answer one of histories big mysteries. I was able to get a review copy of this book and here is what I thought of it.
Here is the plot for Hard to Die:
An inventive new take on the uncharted fate of Theodosia Burr Alston, the fiery daughter of Alexander Hamilton’s murderer Aaron Burr, and subject of “Dear Theodosia” in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, Hamilton. This speculative fiction time-warp combines elements of history, the paranormal, and suspense to breathe fresh air into Theodosia’s forgotten life and story. The sequel to the debut novel To Live Forever.
I enjoyed reading Hard to Die. The way the author chooses to tell this story was bold but it worked quite well. It jumps between the two main characters Richard Cox and Theodosia Burr Alston. As the story progresses many shocking revelations come to light for both of these characters. I also liked how it was not an extremely boring or dull read. It won’t be a book for everyone but history buffs will really like it. You can learn more about Hard to Die by clicking on this website.
Hard to Die gets 7/10. It was a good story, but I had some minor issues with it. My big qualm was the ending. The novel ends on a note that is not too satisfying and clearly the tale is not over yet. Some of the characters were too odd for my tastes and don’t always add much to the story. Overall though it was fun to read it and I look forward to the sequel.
