Foretellings have no place for goodness, only greatness. Princess Ezrahli is far from good, but she is a great woman in a conventional Kingdom, followed by whispers and scorn. However, across the waters is un-convention, magic, and fable. Her existence has been foretold in the battle against dark magic, and destiny shall weave itself into her life because darkness cannot be fought with goodness, only greatness.
I like to learn from other genres while my current work in progress is in the editing process, and this time I chose the memorable dark fantasy Thrown to The Blue, by Kay Chapman. We are literally plunged deep into the unfamiliar world of Princess Ezrahli when she murders her father.
The best ‘world building’ is achieved when you aren’t really aware of it. Somehow we have no difficulty understanding the invented words of this strange world. Clues slip into the reader’s subconscious on every page and we start forming out own theories about how it all might end.
Kayleigh Chapman is a skilled story teller and I soon found myself choosing to continue reading when I should have been doing other things. This is book one of a series I look forward to following – highly recommended.
