Creating a believable world complete with peoples, places, language and beliefs has to be truly a difficult thing. For me it would be near impossible. Karen Tomlinson has begun to do so in her first book of the Goddess and the Guardians in a very entertaining way. I think it has a ways to go before it becomes a world I can see as something real and believable, but it is a tremendous start. I found I had a more difficult time putting it down than I anticipated at the beginning. Now I am anxious to finish this review so I can begin book 2.!
My only reason for a rating of 4 stars rather than 5 is that I feel she needs to pare down the repetition of emotions that both Hugo and Diamond express. It gets monotonous enough that I find myself skipping parts because of it. I'm hoping book 2 gets that a little more under control. I really don't like skipping parts of any book.
Still, very well done!
As Diamond relies on her old family friend, her best friend, and a Queens guard to get her to safety, they run into new allies and more enemies. This book is action packed with fae warriors and enemies out of fairy tales.
Diamond realizes that she is not safe anywhere, as even the Queen covets what Diamond has, and wants to make her into a weapon to defend her kingdom. The Queen and the Wraith Lord both want Diamonds power.
Diamond is betrayed by a friend, and has to wonder if she can rely on Hugo, the queens guard who saved her life, or if he will betray her too.
A Bond of Venom And Magic is an amazing book that leaves you wanting more. Yes, it ends in a cliffhanger, and I can't wait for book two!
I am part of Karen's Silver Guardians street team/reader group, and I was so excited to have been selected to be part of the blog tour. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has read the Air Awakens series by Elise Kova; Elementals series by Michelle Madow; Threats of Sky and Storm by Jennifer Ellision. If you've read those, you will enjoy this so much.
Magically fantastic. A five star epic fantasy. The first book in a long time that left me with the dreaded book hangover! ABOVAM was jammed packed with adventure and magic, with quirky, I wish you were real characters. I’m dying for book 2! Hurry Karen, I’m not sure how long I can wait!!!
