Well Done!

This stand alone fantasy novel by Aderyn Wood is one of the best sagas I've read in a while. The world building is exceptional but not tedious. The story has everything a reader wants- magic, traditions, mystery and depth. Characters r well developed and the plot suspenseful. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

For fantasy fans

Several indigenous clans who rely on both nature and magic, are faced with a omen that they lay on the shoulders of an infant. There was a new system and fantastic world building that had me enthralled from the beginning to the end.

Iluna's mother died during childbirth and was born on the wrong day at the wrong time. In these particular tribes, having no family labelled a person a tamatu, a kind of blight on the tribe. Her father having died months earlier, she was entrusted to the care of magic user. From here we watch her grow up being teased, bullied, but at the same time with a great potential for magic.

I found myself really enjoying the story of Iluna's childhood. It helped to shape the character and those around her. Yuli, for example, always had things handed to him and in the end, he always wanted more and it shaped him as an adult. There was no room to question these characters, they were who they were.

The world building is something I particularly loved. The author created a structure to the tribes. She made odd traditions believable, and titles easily understood without dumping it all on the reader. There wasn't a lot of action, but I felt there was no need for it. Iluna, Yuli, Anton & Izhur's stories and reactions to new threats were enough to keep me eagerly flipping the pages.

Pacing throughout the novel was steady, catching a rhythm all the way up to the end. It doesn't end so much on a cliffhanger as there is more to Iluna's story to be brought to light and I hope to read the next book in the series when it comes out.


With a great foundation to the characters, and solid world building I was really impressed by this story. It also ended in a way I hadn't expected which gives it double the points. I think fantasy fans who like to be transported into a new world of magic will really enjoy this book.

Great fantasy adventure!

Great book. Follow the adventures of the various characters with twist and suspense. Has magic, intrigue, and dragons. Love the method used by the author in which each chapter follows the story line of a specific character. Can’t wait for the next book in the series.

This story did NOT disappoint!

This book was a wonderful blend of so many elements - magic, fantasy, adventure, etc. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it to other fantasy fans. One of my biggest issues when reading a new book is the character and story world development, so I pay particular attention to those details. This story did NOT disappoint! The characters are very well developed and totally believable, the story world is vast and detailed. I could believe in this book, the characters and the peripherals, which is going to make me keep reading Aderyn Wood's stories as long as they keep being written. I highly recommend this book!
