I am excited to introduce you to a new author who has written a fantasy novel. It was released last week and I am proud to have been gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Blue Shadows Fall is about our main protagonist, Blue Haven who has grown up with an enhanced ability in a community which has always been wary of powers since the age of the Shadow Elves. All her life she has had to act “normal” and hide her powers; only her closest friends know her secret. However, on the day of her graduation she spots something out of the ordinary which will change her life and the future of all those around her.
This book was just superb. The story is told through a dual narrative (which if you have read any of my reviews you will know I LOVE) and this time it is from Blue and a warrior called, Kaleo. From start to finish this book is perfectly paced, you are never left bored or swept away by too much going on at once. It keeps you engaged every chapter and the world creation is brilliantly done. The detail Lennore puts into the environment and the people brings all everything to life in full, vivid colours. She even slips in a few pop culture references which will bring a smile to any bookworm’s face.
This book was the type of read where one minute I wanted to zoom through it and find out what was going to happen next but at the same time I wanted to take my time and really absorb the world, plus i really didn’t want it to end!
Lenore doesn’t spare any detail and it isn’t difficult to empathise with the characters. You will laugh, you will cry and you may even scream in anger, this is a rollercoaster ride of emotions and one of the best fantasies I have read recently.
To me, this author has so much potential and in my opinion gives the likes of Sarah J Maas and Cassandra Clare a run for their money. I will be sure to keep an eye out on any future books by her and I really hope this one becomes a series as it was brilliant, definitely a 5 star read.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – a fantastic fantasy from start to finish. If you like your fantasies you will love this.
Much love ❤
