First Impression:

  • This might have been my first cover love on Netgalley, this actually was the first book I grabbed, sadly it has taken me a lot longer to read and I am glad I finally got the chance.
  • The flow of the story is exactly what you want in a book.
  • This has very strong characters and great world build.

The Story & Characters

  • The story revolves around Lia, she has a different kind of magic, the story is told in her POV. I enjoyed her a lot. I did sometimes feel that the characters really didn’t have a strong connect like something was missing.
  • As the story progresses, I started to realize even with the lack of connect between each other I was still finding them very enjoyable to read. I really started to like them all.
  • This was an epic fantasy it has constant action and lots of adventure.
  • It was one thing after another and it never got confusing, the story was put together very well.
  • Low how the adventure was up front and the romance was in the background. It gave the book more of a even balance.
  • The evil parts of the book are well done and it has lots of twists and turns. The ending was pretty intense and I couldn’t wait to read the next one.

Final Thoughts:

This book surprised me and I don’t think I was expecting what I read which made it so much better for me. I really enjoyed the story and loved the author’s writing style. This was really a different kind of fantasy and am eager to read the next one. I strongly recommend to YA and Adults. This is a great story that will keep you reading and wanting to know more.


Thanks for stopping by to check out my review.

Have a great day and Happy Reading!

  1. I’ve always liked this cover too, ever since I saw it. It sounds like it has a lot of cool fantasy elements like tree magic and herbal stuff, and of course fantasy always gets me anyway. 🙂

  2. I read this one years ago I think. I can’t remember a lot from it, just that I thought it was okay, enjoyed some parts and thought a few other could’ve been done better. I mostly enjoyed the story, but would’ve liked getting to know the characters a bit more. I am glad to hear you enjoyed this one!

    • That I think was my major issues. I loved the MC but I didn’t really connect with them like I wanted to. It felt like something was missing between them and between me and them.
