Wrought of Silver and Ravens: Book Review
Today I am again participating in the Tattered Slippers release and blog tour. The Tattered Slippers are six retellings of The Twelve Dancing Princesses by six different authors, each one fantastic and magical. You don’t want to miss any of them! If you want to check out the other books, reviews and even some character interviews, click here. Today's focus is Wrought of Silver and Ravens: Of Magic Made, Book 1 by E.J.Kitchens.
E.J. Kitchens is a new author to me, and I am glad that I found her. Her newest book called Wrought of Silver and Ravens is set in a kingdom of enchanters, sorcerers, half magics, and ordinary people. Even though all the books on the tour have the theme of dancing princesses, each one has a different take. This book is no different. Thea is a princess cursed to dance each night with her sisters. As she strives to break the curse, she doesn't know who she can trust. Athdar, a man without a kingdom and many secrets, find himself living in a kingdom where he too doesn't know who to trust. The author keeps you reading to find out how it will end.
Three favorite things about Wrought of Silver and Ravens.
1. How the author uniquely uses magic especially in the characters of the half magics.
2. The mix of mystery into the plot keeping you reading to figure out what is really going on.
3. The fairy tale aspect with a twist.
Here is a little bit about the author.
E.J. Kitchens loves tales of romance, adventure, and happily-ever-afters and strives to write such tales herself. When she’s not thinking about dashing heroes or how awesome bacteria are—she is a microbiologist after all—she’s taking photos, reading, or talking about classic books and black-and-white movies. She is the author of the historical fantasy series THE MAGIC COLLECTORS and of several fairytale retellings. She is a member of Realm Makers and lives in Alabama. You can find her at our website, blog, or facebook.
Note: I read this book in return for an honest review. I am looking forward to reading her other books and also recommending them to my daughter who loves this genre.
