I have found lately that I haven’t had as much time to read as I would like, but I have been very lucky to find some really, really great books. This is definitely one of them. If you haven’t checked out Terah Edun’s work yet, this would be a beautiful way to start.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Here is the description from Good Reads :
Amidst scandalous whispers, Ciardis finds herself chosen to tra…more
I LOOOOVE this book. The cover first caught my attention, but so often the cover lies. Not here. The cover is beautiful but the writing is completely incredible.
I always find books with magical main characters interesting and even more so when they are not aware in the beginning of the story what they are capable of, but this book was even better. Not only is the main character interesting before she discovers who she really is and what she can do, but she is a strong character that does not while away her time being whiny and waiting for things to be done for her.
The supporting characters are interesting. There are a range of personalities within the girls at the companion’s school and they made it interesting. I love the idea of how Ciardis learned to read, another original idea from Terah Edun.
Excellent choice in the random chance meeting that led the main character her to her future destiny. This book is entertaining, skillfully written and one that I would be happy to read again. The magic is original and does not follow the typical pattern of here, use this wand and repeat said incantation.
This book kept me entertained for an entire day. I really did not want to see it end. I am very much looking forward to the next book. I cannot wait to see where Ciardis goes next.
This review is based on a digital ARC from the publisher.
Isn’t it great when you pick a book for a lazy day and the book ends up making you truly stay in lazy mode? I must find more books like this:)
