I enjoyed this fantasy book more than I thought I would. Fantasy isn’t my preferred genre, but I think I’m willing to give more fantasy books a shot after reading this one. Códrina is a well constructed character who had many interesting obstacles to overcome in order to find har place as heroine. I recommend this read to those who like fantasy books and strong female characters.

Review of eBook

On the eve of her eighth birthday, Codrina’s world turns upside down when intruders burst into her house and murder her parents. Codrina runs, but the killers follow, searching for her. Outwitting the pursuers, she masquerades as a boy and finds safety in her new adopted family.

Forced to run once again, Codrina finds sanctuary within a religious community. A hard journey leads her to the silver mines. But will she find the way to fulfill her destiny? Is she truly the one the legend foretold?

=========

An epic fantasy, set in the legendary alternative world of Askraland, this is a tale of one girl’s journey to find herself as she fulfills her destiny. Intriguing characters, an inventive plot, and an interesting premise are sure to leave readers hoping Codrina will succeed.

There are several unexpected surprises as the compelling plot twists and turns; an undercurrent of apprehension keeps readers concerned for Codrina’s well-being.

The world-building here is fascinating, creating a believable alternative land with just enough familiarity for readers to feel comfortable. Additionally, the strong environmental emphasis is a highlight in the telling of the tale.

For readers who enjoy this genre, there is much to appreciate here.

Recommended.

The Wolf, the Walnut, and the Woodsman by Gabriel Hemery was different. The first part was interesting, the world-building was a bit slow. Things seem to slow down in the middle and towards the end. The climax was a bit jumbled. I could have done without the added passionate kiss at the end. It was enjoyable and if you have time a decent read. Like I said that passionate kiss at the end was so unnecessary and didn't add to the story at all.
