Mario Diana is a phenomenal writer who knows how to grasp his reader’s attention from the first page. Diana decides to thrust his reader into the heart of the story straight away so that the reader is instantly captivated and immersed. I personally love this approach, what is the point of having a long build-up with little excitement? This is only necessary if the author in question can’t develop the characters in the story quickly, but with Time Lies, the reader will not encounter this issue because Mario Diana instantly develops his characters and makes the reader invest in not only them but also their journey!
