The Wandering Isles is a novella that follows the Crown of Stones trilogy. Even though you can read this story as a standalone, I highly recommend reading The Crown of Stones books. They are amazing!
As with The Crown of Stones, The Wandering Isles is expertly written. I was sucked into the story within the first paragraph and felt like I was living in the book with the characters. The world building in all of the books I’ve read by this author is excellent, and this book is no exception. I can see it like a movie in my mind as I read.
You really get to know the characters on a deeper level in this book as it’s a novella focused on a specific event. Even though it’s a shorter story, you don’t feel like you are missing anything.
I thoroughly enjoyed this dark fantasy adventure!
