Good Tuesday morning lovelies , hope your day is going well . Today we are going to review
THE THIRTEENTH TOWER by Sara C Snider.
Abandoned as a baby, young Emelyn’s life as a housemaid in the quiet village of Fallow is unremarkable—and empty. That is, until a host of magical creatures arrives and inflicts terrible misdeeds on the townsfolk. Inexplicably immune to their enchantments, Emelyn joins a pair of Magi intent on stopping the cause of the trouble—and who claim to know of her parents, promising Emelyn answers to a lifetime of questions.
But the answers Emelyn seeks prove to be more elusive than she hoped, and the world outside Fallow more perilous than she imagined. Magical creatures roam the land over, attacking yet another town before coming after Emelyn. The key to her survival—and finding her family—lies deep within her, if only she can conquer her doubts and believe she is more powerful than she ever dreamed.
In a journey that explores facing one’s fears amidst the uncertainties of an unknown world, The Thirteenth Tower is a magical tale of discovery, growth, and of love’s enduring strength.
This book had me hooked by the end of chapter one . The story is one of magic and the strength of love. The story is about a young orphan Emelyn , who was abandoned as baby. She grows up as a housemaid. Her life is uneventful and pretty boring. Until the day that a bunch of magical creatures come to town and start hurting the townsfolk. But Emelyn is some how immune to these creatures . And sets out with tow magi to thwart these creatures . With the promise of answers to who her parents are . She over comes so many things to help her survive but will she become strong enough to over come her doubts and be the woman she is suppose to be.
When I started to read this book it took me to a medieval world of magic and magical creatures , are just pure heavenly . There are new characters that will keep you entertained. Cobbe was a great character . Emelyn's character is a very mature and responsible young woman , who doesn't go and fall in love with the two men she meets along the way. There are so many cool characters that you will love , you just don't know if they are bad or good. I hope to learn more about these characters with each book. The forest people especially need to know about.
This is not your children's fairy tale . This is a grown up, sitting on the edge of your seat fairy tale.
You are taken for a ride that will show you imps, innocents , dark forests full of evil and dark creatures . The story is a good read that will take you to a world that will mystify you and make you fall in love. So I recommend this for anyone who wants to go a fantasy and get lost in a good story .
