The Notary of Gotliss Street Paperback – February 2, 2019
Enhance your purchase
For more than 200 years, the harbourside street has existed in isolation, walled off from the city it was once a part of. Its people live happily, never wanting more. Most of them, at least.
Erinyth has never felt like she belonged. When she gains an apprenticeship under the notary, she uncovers how deep the secrets run, and just how much of an outsider she is.
After two centuries, the cracks in the wall are beginning to show. Erinyth needs to decide who she can trust: the boy who loves her, the girl who sees everything, or the man they say is the devil.

This is a perfect dystopian story and a quick read. The pacing is perfect, up until the end. I was left wanting just a bit, and some of the characters went off the rails a bit (in my opinion). Overall, it's a phenomenal work and Erinyth is a perfect character.
No love triangles, just real and flawed love. A strong female lead that is actually likable. A masterful web of secrets.
Well done, Trevena. I'm excited to read more from this author - ASAP.
This is another of Angelina Trevena's beautifully atmospheric and well written books. It's the deceptively simple story of a girl - Erinyth - who feels she doesn't quite fit in, so she does something not quite fitting for a young female. (I'm not going to spoil anything for the reader.)
This book is also a mystery, a thriller, a story of division and (the lack of) women's rights, a heart-in-your-mouth-as-you-turn-the-page kind of book, a love story, and more. For 200 years Gotliss Street has been walled off. Why? Is the street walled off from the other side, or is the other side walled off from the street? Has Erinyth found the devil?
So many questions to draw you in, get you hooked, and turning the pages to find out Gotliss Street's secrets. I loved the ending so much. Recommended if you're looking for something just that wee bit different to savour and enjoy.
I received an early ecopy of this book which I voluntarily read and honestly reviewed. All opinions are my own.

As I finished 41 and turned the page (Kindle) I still had nearly 20% left to read .... except I didn’t. Chapter 30 appeared. Chapters 30-41 were repeated which really annoyed me. The ending left me hungry for more. It was a major disappointment.
Given this street is limited in size, and there were pubs, brothels, cafes, etc etc, and the fact that in 200 years of marrying & having children, the community expands; where did they all live? Where did they grow enough food? Raise animals for meat? Where did the supplies come from to make cloth? Dye it? Shoes? Brew drinks? These questions weren’t answered and spoiled the story for me.
A map of the street would have helped.
I like the author’s writing. I like this book. I’ll certainly try her others.
Give it a go.
