We find out about the Special Reserve Humans who were sold because of their high quality, about magic demonstrations, and other fascinating details about this new world.
I loved reading about the main character’s adventures as he finds his way through the complicated world of politics and magic he finds himself in. Very well written, I couldn’t put this book down! I can’t wait for the next book in the series!
The characters that Ms. Griffith created in this story are entertaining and full of depth. The story focuses on Teine and person he is gifted to. However there are so many secondary characters that keep you entertained.
The story also did a wonderful job of describing the environment so that you felt like you were there. This is a intriguing story of a fantasy world where their is plenty of action, danger, magic, and adventure.
When you open the first page be prepared to be swept into a fantasy with intriguing characters that make you keep turning the page until the very end.
Read and reviewed for Kylie's Fiction Addiction. I received a gift copy in exchange for an honest review.
Another plus is that the Kindle version is basically error-free. I have been reading so many Kindle books that they don't appear to be edited at all. It is pleasant to find one that doesn't distract with missing words and errors.
I do have to note that the cover art, however, gives the impression of being a book for a very young audience, which it is not.
Gifted is set on another world that is filled with magic and lore. This world is ruled by Empyreans who have enslaved the humans after they arrived on this planet. Ms. Griffith’s descriptive writing provides wonderfully rich settings that are easy to visualize while reading. The plot is action-packed, and the tension builds throughout the story. The ample plot twists kept my engaged. Ms. Griffith has interspersed this complex political tale with a few touching moments and some humor; however, it is mostly a tale of political power struggle with a very large cast of characters.
The massive cast of characters all have imaginative, and impossible to pronounce, names that are sure to delight avid fantasy fans. I am sure each of those names was mispronounced in my mind while I was reading! The main character, Tiene, is a young adult human male who is spared castration when his master, Aoife, decides that Tiene would make a good stud. Yes, the life of a slave can be dicey! Tiene and his compatriots are all wonderfully developed; it is easy to empathize with their situation and the political maze they must navigate while serving the ruling class.
Ms. Griffith has plans for a nine book series that is sure to be an epic Fantasy tale of adventure. Fans of Sarah M. Cradit’s The House of Crimson and Clover series are sure to enjoy Ms. Griffith’s fantasy series as well.
P.s. I loved this book so much, I bought a print copy!
