Productbeschrijving

Productbeschrijving

A stand-alone epic fantasy set in the Brightmoon world…
Kyra has always been drawn to the magic of spellpages. She’s determined to leave her small village far behind and become a scribe, wielding the power of magic through her pen. But a simple favour for her sister goes disastrously awry, destroying Kyra's dreams in an instant.
What went wrong? Devastated, she accepts an offer to find out from a stranger, who sees growing power within Kyra, potentially stronger than spellpages. While she struggles to understand her magic, she’s surrounded by the greed and ambition of the court, uncertain who to trust. The answers may lie within the glowing walls of the Imperial City, but its magic is strong and the unwary vanish without trace on its streets. Kyra will have to learn fast to survive.

3.0 van 5 sterren Great epic fantasy with well defined magic system and interesting plot 29 februari 2016
door Andrea Luhman - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
I gave this three out of five stars for a lovely fantasy world, a well defined magic system, and a plot that pulled me through from start to finish.
What I liked:
1) The magic system. It has layers and levels of mysteries. Most of the magical things were defined through the action of the story or in bits of exposition as needed. For the amount of magical material it is a feat that readers are spared from lengthy info dumps. I especially loved the library and the city built for mages. I really thought the dangers in this city for non-mages was wonderfully constructed and made for a great twist towards the end of the plot.
2) The plot. I was rooting for the young Kyra from the beginning, hoping she saves the needed money to attend school and pursue her dreams. It was a fun ride watching her navigate obstacles capable of derailing or destroying her.
3) The fantasy realm. It’s well defined and different enough to feel like a strange and foreign place, but relatable with human customs and behaviors.
What I didn’t enjoy.
1) The protagonist. She was too selfish and emotionally immature for my taste. To me her inability to read other people or empathize with them meant she is at best sitting somewhere on the autism spectrum, or at worst is some form of sociopath. It was detectable in the beginning when she easily loses all sentiments and ties to her family. She was too willing, and had zero emotional reaction to the contract forcing her to give up her child. It took too long for her to decipher her attachment to Cal. I also think it's the only way you can explain a character saying in all sincere honesty to her long-term mentor, “I didn’t know you had a mother.”
2) The lack of dialog. The best scenes in this book are ones where the ongoing action of the story is presented in a scene with dialog. Too many of the dramatic character interactions are filtered as a memory or passively mentioned with major emotions about the other character stated as a fact of how the protagonist felt at the time. It killed my emotional tie to the ongoing action.
3) The romantic pacing. The romantic tie was in the scenes presented, but if more of the moments mentioned in passing had been presented and not filtered, the emotional resolution would have had a greater impact. The ending left me a little cold. If their confessions had come before the final climactic arc, the entire ending would have been more dramatic.

5.0 van 5 sterren Well written, easy read fantasy. 30 januari 2015
door J. Clarke - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
I have given this book 5 stars because I genuinely enjoyed the story, the characters and the world that they are living in. This is the authors second book and the writing style is good. I enjoyed the way that certain strange words were used, but from context it was easy to understand their meaning. There are some surprises and some expectations met, it is an easy read, page turner. I like the fact that the characters were not perfect, they made mistakes and all had some flaws, it makes them more believable.
There are a couple of blips, a little bit of repetition somewhere and some problems near the end of the story as another reviewer has pointed out, and I did notice these and puzzle a little, but we are not perfect, us writers, and it did not detract from the pleasure given by the story as a whole.

Thank you Pauline for taking me out of my world for a while.
4.0 van 5 sterren good plot progression - I will read more of Ross' ... 20 juli 2017

I got this through a free download from Bookbub or FussyLibrarian - can't remember which. Usually the free downloads are worth what you pay, but every once in a while there's a gem. This is one of those gems. Interesting world, well-written, relate-able characters, good plot progression - I will read more of Ross' books, even though it looks like I'll have to pay real money in the future. :)

If you enjoyed Novik's "Uprooted" you will see some similarities, but you will enjoy this one just as much.
5.0 van 5 sterren Astonishingly good story telling 23 februari 2016
door lucyblue - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com

Astonishing book. SO much better than the first in series. I read a lot and 5 stars is unusual for me in the self-publishing world, but all of these Brightmoon books after the first one deserve it. Characters are well developed; the plot twists almost make me crazy with anticipation for what comes next, and i literally can't put the thing down once started. There is so obviously a TON of backstory that we don't get explained, yet it is alluded to and gives much depth to the story being told.

Just reread this whole series of books, hoping i guess that the next would be out by the time i finished but no such luck. Even though all the books are happening on the same world, all are about different cultures on that world, which may or may not have much to do with the others so each book is fresh with new characters, new world views, and utterly fascinating interactions between everyday people and the wealthy, or their ruling classes. No great moralistic musings either, just great story telling with unexpected, inconsistent yet always present, magical connections. Definitely suggest reading the Fire Mages Daughter after this one - it's not a continuation of this story by any means, but does highlight a few people and places in later years.

My only suggestion is a reminder that millions of us really don't care for reading about romance and the less there is of it in any book, the happier we are. These books all have too much of it, and sexual exploits as well, for my tastes, yet it's fairly easy to skip over or ignore because it isn't the heart of the story. I'd love to see much less of both, much much less. Otherwise, it's great story telling and an author i am keeping on my radar.

4.0 van 5 sterren Found this book to be very enjoyable 7 april 2015
door lauraNZ - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
i really enjoyed this book and was sad to see it end. I enjoyed Ross' unique writing style, which didn't seem to try and imitate any other style or try to include far to many fancy words or unnecessarily lengthy descriptions. The main character was interesting and I liked that her thoughts weren't always completely predictable. She is a very pragmatic person, though she can sometimes be a bit boring to listen to. I always felt like more time should have passed, but when days passing was mentioned it was always only 5-8 suns (days). I enjoyed the unique ways of referring to things we know, and the way parts of their culture was included as thought it was obvious and common. It was always easy to grasp the social and political situations put forward in the book.
The way magic is treated and the great history that the reader can sense in the background is really cool. I love the idea of drusses, limitations on magic and scribery and the casual way they are spoken of. I was a bit disappointed that we never learned what the deal with the purple spots were. Also that we did not dwell we more into the history of the imperial cit, but I hope the next books will explore this further.
