Alaji lives near the Holy Lakes. An army arrives with a very powerful warlord, she is told this will cause the end of her people and land. Soon she learns the five spells of women and a special one given to her, the spell over time. For her to learn this spell of the Gods could cause her death. But learning this may be her only hope of saving her family And herself.
A fun fantasy with a lot of action and likable characters. I really liked Alaji, she does what she must in order to save her family, no matter what the outcome may be. The plot is original, with attention to detail, bringing you into the story. I recommend A Count of Five to those who enjoy fantasy.
*This book was a gift
I had no idea what to expect from this book, but was I was immediately engrossed in it. It revolves around the character Alaji, who knows the basic spells of her people, somewhat accidentally discovers rudimentary time travel. It's hard to explain more without giving spoilers, but what follows is a journey that is never predictable or obvious, filled with the complications of time travel. There's a lot of thought that's put into the theory of time travel that is also really interesting and unique. Definitely put this book on your read list.
Well you're going to get more than that. I thought that A Count of Five was a fast and fun read. There are points where the book intentionally goes too fast, but they are just moments and always have some kind of context to ground yourself with. I personally loved that A Count of Five doesn't over explain or hand hold every little detail.
Being the first book in a series, a ton of stuff is introduced and explored, but just enough goes unanswered to make you want to read the next book, but still feel satisfied with the first book.
Can't wait for the second book to come out.
