My rating: 4 of 5 stars
There’s a lot going on here!
And it’s not concluded at the end of this first book in Isobel Starling’s new fantasy series either, but there is the start of a complex narrative which I’m eager to learn more of.
I believe the three books together will bring different characters’ backgrounds and stories so far into one over-reaching plot that will conclude once all is done.
First up was Adam and Winter and they’re very cute together and delightfully stumble their way not only into a relationship but also into an epic adventure.
It’s really hard to review this without giving the key parts away, which I’m not going to do, but let’s just say I was kept interested from start to finish even when it all got a little bit complicated.
The book itself is gorgeous, with internal illustrations and a stunning world map, there’s also a handy glossary at the start with a decent chunk of background information on each of the realms.
Like all good fantasy novels, it leaves as much unanswered as it does concluded so I can’t wait to see where the story goes next.
