I’ve read yet another YA novel to review and that review is up over at the fabulous website Writers, After Dark! The book is Nightborn by Lou Anders. One of the greatest things about writing for sites like Writers is that I get to read such amazing books that I wouldn’t normally get to read!
As usual, here’s a snippet of my Review of Nightborn by Lou Anders:
The great thing about some trilogies is the ability to jump in in the middle and still not get lost. I had not read the first book in the “Thrones & Bones” series, Frostborn when I picked upNightborn. And, while it definitely piqued my interest to go back and read the first book, I was not confused or lost having not read it.
Nightborn is the continuing adventure of Karn Knorludsen, a gamer from the north, who, in order to save his best friend, Thianna Frostborn, must travel to the far away city of Castlebriar on a search for a magic item: The Horn of Osius.
Along his travels, Karn meets the lovely dark elf Desstra, who is on a mission to join the Underhand, the official warriors of the dark elves. It turns out that Desstra is also on a mission to find the Horn of Osius, but her mission is one of deception and betrayal. Or is it?
This was a very fun read and I’d recommend it to readers of all ages, but especially to readers who like high fantasy, and are either too intimidated to tackle the big guns like Tolkien or Martin, or want a quick read while waiting for Martin to finish the next book in the A Song of Ice and Fire series.
