This trilogy might leave some people, after just a few pages, wondering why anyone would wish to engage with such a style, or such a project – the two are inseparable – but those who have followed Your Face Tomorrow through its first two volumes will find its conclusion, Poison, Shadow and Farewell, mesmerising. They will surely feel that it has been one of the defining reading experiences of their life and look forward to starting all over again.
