Thank you to the author for the opportunity to read this free digital edition for an honest review!
This is a strong 4-star rating novel based on content and overall writing style despite the many grammatical errors and lack of proofreading and editing. I know when further editions come out, this will really become a top notch read for those that enjoy YA fantasy. The storyline is awesome and the characters evoke many emotions and are relatable. It is a story about magic and fear and hope and new awakening. Kemla is a young woman that lives with her mom and sister and other kids she has saved along the way to keep them safe from the slave traders. She has always had an extra ability to sense where others are and becomes aware her siblings are in trouble. She is discovered while attempting to save the kids and is captured and taken a prisoner. She connects with one of the slave traders and discovers he uses magic, which is banned. Those with magic are killed on sight. This mage helps open her eyes to her potential. We are left hanging and drooling for book two so that we can see what may come between Leon and Kemla and how Kemla will deal with the aftermath of this unwarranted capture. Overall great job!
