My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A cute story about growing up and the difficulties that come with it. Right from the start, the book had my smiling. It started out so fun and quirky and I was immediately hooked! Once the story progresses, it actually hit on several really serious topics and even pulled a tear or two from me! I went from giggling along with the quirkiness of the main characters, to suffering, to frustration, and back again. Some parts were so captivating, and other parts were a bit slower to get through. I loved the ending and how everything was wrapped up. My only complaint is that I would have liked to experience more of the ending, maybe a few more interactions with the characters at the end and some idea on where they were headed. It felt like the ending was the start of the new beginning I had been hoping for the two characters! Perhaps there will be another book… I guess I can dream!

Although this is a young adult fiction, the characters and vivid world building really suck you in. There is great character developments and a page turning plot.

Depending on your reading speed this is a novel that can be enjoyed in a day; it is face paced and as a majority of it takes place over only a couple of days, it is hard to put down.

Looking forward to the next book in the trilogy, I need to know what comes next!!!

Twilight’s Curse is an exciting fantasy novel, suitable for teen and YA readers but also perfectly enjoyable for adults. It is the first book in the Twilight Realm trilogy, set in a world of elves, brownies and magic.

It’s a wonderful, original world with loads of cool details. I particularly like Zoe’s magic tattoos – given to her against her will, but proving too have power beyond what her parents could have guessed. And the tree houses – bigger on the inside and brimming with nature magic.

The narration is first person, switching between Nix and Zoe’s perspectives. The story jumps around in time a bit, filling in the gaps between the initial tragedy that sets off the events of the book and the present day where Nix and Zoe come into their destinies. It’s always made clear whose perspective we’re getting, and where each section fits in the timeline.

This story gets five stars from me, and I would recommend it to fantasy lovers looking for something a bit different! Plenty of magic and adventure to be found here.

This is a classic YA fantasy novel – it has the character and world building, the magic, everything. It took me a few days to get into, but it is a very good page-turning, easy read once you do. There is a bit of time-jumping, but it is important for building a backstory, and it is done in a way that makes sense, it isn’t jarring or anything. Once you get past that part, the story develops beautifully. If you enjoy fantasy books, definitely give this one a shot!

Seeing your mother killed and your dad sacrificed himself in front of you can really be traumatizing. Then being royalty and having to hide identity for fear of being killed can take a toll. Then it’s time to take back your kingdom back and proclaim yourself king. What an eventful story.

Love love love this fantasy book and can’t wait for the rest of the series.
Most ya fantasy books now days seem to be all the same, but this book was by far a new lind of story.
The books has a great mixture of royalty, elves, magic, brownies, and just everything magical.
The author does an amazing job at story telling and teaching lessons within her story!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Nix is an orphaned prince of the Twilight Realm who has to gone into hiding. Zoe, the daughter of the usurpers, ran away from her parents after years of abuse. Both are searching for a way to end the tyranny and set everything back to rights. As their lives and similar missions become intertwined, can they work together or will they let their differences come between them?

This was a fantastic YA read. The characters were well written and the plot moved quickly. My attention was captured from the very beginning and I was rooting for Zoe and Nix to overcome their fears and work together. It saddened me to read of the abuse (not explicitly written) that Zoe had undergone and the trauma that Nix experienced. However, I appreciated that despite these awful experiences, neither character let it define who they were or keep them from doing/seeing the good in others.

I would recommend this book!

Zoe has parents that are up to no good as she knows with experience and pain. Nix’s parents are killed in front of him and he hides for over a decade even though it may seem long isn’t for his nightmare each night. 14 years later Zoe and Nix meet and that will either decide fate to help each other or avoid each other to help take over the kingdom from the wrong hands. I truly enjoyed this book. It came with so many stories and relationships in this first book in the series. I’m ready to pick up the second book!

The story and plot was good! The detail in the emotions and the way the author shows you the weight on Nix and Zoe’s shoulders was really good! I can’t give this 5 stars because of the writing style. I am such a stickler for writing style, but there are so many of them and many people prefer completely different styles than me. The short sentences don’t always get me, but when they are more common in a book it makes it harder to read (I have dyslexia and small punctuation like commas and periods tend to mess with me).

All in all, the plot was amazing and the story came alive around me. I absolutely will be recommending this book to friends!!
