Synopsis:To Sam Blount, meeting Julia is the best thing that has ever happened to him. Working at the local college and unsuccessful in his previous relationships, he’d been feeling troubled about his approaching fortieth birthday, “a great beast of a birthday,” as he sees it, but being with Julia makes him feel young and hopeful. Julia Stilwell, a freshman trying to come to terms with a recent tragedy that has stripped her of her greatest talent, is flattered by Sam’s attention. But their relationship is tested by a shy young man with a secret, Marcus Broley, who is also infatuated with Julia. Told in alternating points of view, The Preservationist is the riveting tale of Julia and Sam’s relationship, which begins to unravel as the threat of violence approaches—and Julia becomes less and less sure whom to trust.
This is a very complex thriller that you won't want to put down. The alternating viewpoints gave this a fresh and unique feeling, that gets your mind into the story right away. I was drawn into the story from the start, and when I finished I felt like I had run a marathon and I mean that in a very good way. I really enjoyed the characters and how they were written. Yes, the writing style is a bit sparse, but I enjoyed filling in the blanks and it just worked with this book! I loved it, I craved more after I closed the book, and I can't wait to see what Justin Kramon has in store for us next!
