This book was given to me by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This is the first book I’m completing in a year. I will admit that the first thing that attracted me to this book was the cover. You can’t blame me, though; it is an amazing cover.
What makes this book likable? And why did I enjoy it? Let’s find out.
Yanna Grey is a witch hunter, born to witch hunter parents who believe they’re doing the entire world a favor by ridding the earth of witches.
It’s all Yanna ever knew until she was accidentally transported into a magical realm known as Ragond.
So this is a YA book, and going into it, I expected the regular YA tropes. While there were a few tropes here and there, it wasn’t as much as I expected.
This book was quite a breeze, not too predictable either, and I enjoyed the story.
The world created by the author is the best thing about this book. This story happens on earth and Ragond. There were two other realms mentioned, even though the story did not occur there.
I adore the magic system. It’s one of the most thought-out things in this book. And the dragons are a great part of this book.
While the world was great and gave the book so much potential to be great, the writing was what made it fall flat. It wasn’t bad at all, just very simple. It made me feel like I was reading a children’s book sometimes. Maybe that’s the idea. I guess I’m older than the target audience.
The characters were all okay. Yanna behaved like a child sometimes. Most times, I forget she’s 16 and not 8. Farica was an okay character though she did not have much of a personality.
My absolute favorite character has to be the dragon Phaedron. In summary, this was not a bad book at all. It was quite a fast and easy read.
