An historical fantasy book...
By: Robin LaFevers
Genre: YA historical fiction/fantasy
4 out of 5
Ismae’s story is captivating from the very beginning, but did lose me as it continued. Lafevers includes WAY too many characters in the story, which is probably why she starts with a list of characters. I felt I would have been able to grasp and enjoy the story more if there were only half the number of characters. It’s not that all those characters were meaningless, but they weren’t so essential that without them I would have found the story more enjoyable. I am looking forward to the rest of the trilogy, which is the stories of Sybella and Annith, both fellow covent sisters of Ismae. However, I still found the story VERY captivating and intriguing, so 4 stars it is.
