Productbeschrijving

Productbeschrijving

A determined girl. A cranky mage. An unwanted heir. A mysterious magical city.

Kyra’s 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 or any living mage. 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.

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.
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 Interesting culture, personal story. 18 maart 2015
door Hillary A. Davis - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
I enjoyed this book for the cultural exploration and magic more than anything, because I'm a sucker for new social systems and long-lost arcanotech. The plot takes a while to kick in, but the build-up of Kyra's life -- seeking her professional goals only to see them thwarted, then discovering that something she thought was commonplace actually set her far apart from the norm -- was consistently interesting, and proceeded in a way that felt a lot more organic than most young-person-learns-they're-special stories. The events were rather quiet and small-scale, which is just fine; this is a personal story, not a world-shaking one, even though it does cause upheaval in the local magical community. It feels like it could be the foundation of a series, the change that sets off a larger plot.

3.0 van 5 sterren Was expecting something new, only to be left with a cliche 12 januari 2015
door Frozenmoose - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
To be honest, after reading the other reviews, which were all 5 star, I was expecting this book to be great. Unfortunately, although an interesting premise to begin with, a female with mage potential intent on becoming what amounts to a magical lawyer, after the first quarter of the book this idea is totally abandon in favor of a much weaker (and cliche) story line. Additionally, I found the main character to be weakly characterized, she begins the book in her early teens, and although she ends it in her 20's she still retains the mindset and naivete of a 13 year old child. She also begins the book as a determined young girl who will do anything to be a law scribe and ends it as a wishy-washy non-confrontational character who would rather stay back and fret than take any actual action against the antagonist. The main character puts up with a lot of abuse from the male characters, but overlooks the abuse over and over again because they had been "friends" or slept together. Lastly, there were a lot of discrepancies in the story, one minute something would be true, but then later it would be totally ignored. For instance natural mages are supposed to be immune to all spells, however the big idea to capture the antagonist was to put a sleep spell on him. Another example is that the antagonist as a natural mage is able to see other natural mages auras, however at the end the main character regains her magic but supposedly the antagonist never notices.

Overall an okay book, but not one I would pay more than $0.99 for. I ended up giving this book a 3 out of 5 because i didn't hate it, but never truly enjoyed or loved it either. For a much better read, try anything by Mercedes Lackey, Brandon Sanderson, Robert Jordan, or K.E. Mills.

4.0 van 5 sterren A Hard Book to Put Down 10 oktober 2016
door M. Graham - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
This is the first time I read this author. I'm not sure where I stumbled upon this book. It's far longer than most fiction books these days which is good - more to it - and not-so-good if you end up reading half the night trying to finish an enthralling tale. I fell in love with the kingdom and the characters.
