Asterin Faelenhart is the princess of Axaria. When a strange creature begins threatening the safety of her kingdom, Asterin finds that she may be the only one who can defeat it. But not without the help of others who offer their services to her. This group of strangers find that not only do they have more in common than they thought, but they grow closer together thanks to this trip of a lifetime.
The booked dragged on a little in the middle. When the setting stays stationary for too long, I feel the repetitive days feel just that. And that’s when I usually find myself slowing down when I read.
Learning about a group of characters and their personalities. It wasn’t just the main character and her story it was each person’s and how they are all connected. It was quite entertaining to read and learn
The mysteries and secrets. From learning more about each person’s secrets to those around them, not all of what you see is the truth. And that is all I will say on this matter.
This was an adventure that I wish had kept going on and on. The author did the leave the end open to a second novel which I really hope she makes. I definitely suggest adding this book to your TBR radar.
My similar recommendation for this novel would be Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas.
“Caves that come and go with the full moon, enchanted lakes. Proceed with the utmost caution. It appears that you’re Axaria’s last hope, Princess Asterin.”
If your review didn’t pique my interest (it did, by the way) then that quote did. I wonder if I’ve been living under a rock because I totally missed this titles entire existence? Shame on me. This sounds really brilliant though and I’m glad you enjoyed it. Stoked to hear that it only dragged a bit during the middle and then fixed itself up!
Overall this definitely sounds interesting and I’m going to have to look into it ASAP. Thanks for sharing! Great review.
