    Young Adult Fantasy

    Seventeen year old farm girl Catrin was just an ordinary student. That is, before her powers began to awaken. In an effort to save a classmate from harm, she unleashes her magic on the bullies, creating an explosion. She has no idea why she suddenly has these powers, and she must embark on a journey to save her homeland from evil.

    I had a hard time getting into this book. There is a lot of prose, some of it rather nice. It just seems to move too slowly, and I get a little more description than necessary of unimportant things. There is a well developed history to this fantasy world, which I appreciated. Much of it is presented in the beginning in the form of a lesson, which is a fine choice. I would have like to see it woven in a bit more with the story’s narrative.

    Catrin is an interesting girl and someone who I think young readers can relate to. The other kids her age are not so well developed, at least in this installment of the series, so they are not as interesting since we don’t get to know them well.

    The story seems to move too quickly in some spots. Catrin goes from not knowing what she’s doing to seeming to have full control of her powers. The separations within chapters switch between characters or time of day and I really felt there were just too many of them. Maybe I have a preference for shorter chapters, but it seemed like sometimes there was too much in one chapter, and breaking it up more would have helped. There were a few of those breaks that didn’t seem to add much to the plot, and those could easily have been left out.

    All in all, young fans of fantasy will enjoy this tale. It isn’t difficult to follow, but it does take a while to get into the story. I believe this is permanently free on Amazon, and it’s certainly worth a try.

    I received a free copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

    It took a bit of reading to get into, but the story is quite different than other fantasy I have enjoyed. Can't wait for the rest of the story.
