Exciting and Entertaining

This book is the first in a trilogy and it definitely ends with multiple cliffhangers that make me hope the second part is released soon. The characters are well developed and have very interesting backstories. The narrator did a great job with providing a multitude of distinct voices for the many characters in the book.

Great Read!

It's one of the best books I've read. Now that it's on Audio, I love how the narrator brings the characters to life. It felt like I was there in the story. I can't wait to see it on the big screen, a box office hit!

A Must Read

The storyline moved fast and kept me interested. Having the different voices of the characters made the story come alive. I was left with so many questions. Iwant more of the story.

Dark and depressing

"Requiem: Origins, Book 1" (2019, 2020) by Taveyah LaShay is a dark novel about several Black characters, all unlikeable—a pair of male fraternal twins reared in separate households as cousins; a philandering, amoral attorney with a secret; a secretary who’s been having an affair with the married attorney for years; and her daughter from the relationship, a twelve-year-old who sounds like she’s six. Their stories are intertwined in deception and murder but I found the story depressing. Paul Burt’s gritty narration is fine. Not recommended. At my request, I was given this free audiobook and have voluntarily left this review.

Slow to start...

And not always easy to follow. I don't mind when books have different characters being followed in separate arcs but it's not very easy in this book and didn't always have a reason for the jump from one to the next.
The prologue offered a great story arc to start with. After that though it just got a bit confused and lost some of the intensity first offered. I look forward to reading more from this author and hope when the next book in the trilogy will fill in some of the blanks and offer a more structured approach to the characters.
