The Voices of Ire is like stepping into a magical land. The land is ruled by Wishcasters, and is threatened by the Murk. Young Azalin, struggling to hide her powers and fit in with her neighbors, proves to be a wonderful character. When she is invited to the Eaglecrest Kingdom to participate in the trials, which will determine the positions of the new Wishcasters, she doesn't go with excitement. Accompanied by her best friend, she makes the journey, and discovers her new role in life. The characters in this book are interesting and lovable. Aubrie created a world of magic that is easy to walk in to. This book is well written and would be a great read for young adults or adults.
From the beginning, this story was a page-turner. Although there were a few typos (moreso the editor's fault, though), the plot moved at a brisk pace with a few twists to keep readers on their toes. I liked how magic was woven into the plot, and the elemental trials that the heroine Azalin faced to prove her mettle. There is also a mysterious prince for those who are romantics at heart (the other characters were equally fun to imagine), and the stickiness that pervades so many other young adult novels was tastefully absent. However, that does not mean that the romance was in any way stale. If you like court life with a touch of magic, this book gets a thumbs up.
Aubrie Dionne's The Voices of Ire follows Azalin's journey. With poetic prose, believable characters, and a fantastic world, the novel tells how everyone deserves a second chance. The pacing is excellent, and Ms. Dionne excels in pulling the reader into her invented world. I easily fell in love with the characters and was yanked into Azalin's journey and felt her pangs of seemingly unrequited love and desire to save her kingdom above all costs. Most of all, Ms. Dionne's telling of the novel is pure and heartfelt. The Voices of Ire is worth reading, especially if you enjoy fantasy and a story of second chances, hope, and love.
