I was given a copy of this book by the author, D. D. Chant to review. It’s the first book in the Chronicles of Discord series.
There were a few tiny niggles so I will start with those and get them out the way. Firstly there was the same omnipresent viewpoint in this book again which confused me a little again and felt a little too head hoppy for my liking but for the most part it was handled well and I only got a little confused as to who’s POV it was. I am definitely a fan of scene breaks and chapter breaks in between POV changes though, and I also found it was a little too descriptive in places, but it really is a minor niggle.
The characters were amazing. Their depth and little characteristics made it easy to get to know them and I felt my self tensing up when Astra did and feeling Kai’s desire to protect.
The plot was nicely fluid and although a tad on the predictable side didn’t have me feeling disappointed at all. I also completely loved how all the sayings of the old world were woven into the plot as well as all the references to what came before the current situation and wars. Those were all nicely drip fed and kept me wanting more.
I really hope the next book in this series comes out soon. This is by far my favourite book by this author so far.
