A new release from Ragnar Jonasson is an automatic read for me. The Island is book two of The Hulda series. Jonasson is able to fully immerse readers into his stories. In each of his books he is able to draw readers into the story so they feel as if they are walking beside the lead character. Jonasson also tells Hulda’s story in a unique manner. In book one of the series, The Darkness we meet Hulda at the end of her career. In The Island, Hulda is in the middle of her career. I am on the edge of my seat waiting for book three. I could go on and on about how much I love Jonasson’s books. The Island is for sure a contender for my favorite book of 2019.
