The only drawback in this book is that Boyce occasionally mixes her images in a way that is counterintuitive. Each time she assigned an auditory sensation to a visual image, it made me pause and go, "huh?" a little bit. Still it wasn't nearly enough to stop me reading the rest of the book, which I enjoyed immensely. I hope you will too.
This is the story of Kara; she is hiking and stumbles through a lichgate, taking her into a totally different world. She is thrust into a situation where she learns she has become a key to the future of this realm! It's a heavy burden for a young woman struggling to deal with grief and tragedy... She is always told never to trust anyone when she yearns for a friend to help her on this journey.
S. M. Boyce has really richly created a new world with different "peoples" for each kingdom as well as a variety of magical creatures! The description is vivid enough to picture them for yourself! Her characters are slowly revealed as Kara herself learns the truth about them. There are different motivations to all who help Kara, and she is not afraid to trust her own instincts even against her mentor the first Vagabond. Kara is realistic in that she has no pretensions of being a hero - she knows that she is flawed, even broken - yet, she does her best to accept the challenges presented. You find yourself wishing she could really find just one true friend besides tiny Flick!
As a fantasy story, I like the fact that the world is drawn out and explained as Kara needs the information not only to accomplish her mission but also to survive. Too, the book is a clean story with it's romance or should I say hints of it. What is especially nice is that Kara is not afraid to admit she doesn't know and she will accept help. She also learns and grows with the story so that you are hoping indeed that she will succeed in her quest! (I admit to hovering between 4 and 5 stars simply because it took awhile to grow on me at first but then everything began to come together and move faster, and her journeys were NOT easy...!)
I w recommend this book for anyone wanting to read a story with a good female lead learning about her own strengths as the story folds. It is a nice escape into another world, and I am looking forward to reading more in this series soon as I am curious as to the rest of the saga!
I had the audiobook version narrated by Kara Kovacich Stewart and it was awesome. I don't always bring up my dyslexia, but sometime I stay away from reading these books because the made up names for things make the book really hard to read but when I can get them in audio form I really enjoy them a lot, and when you have someone like Kara Kovacich Stewart narrate the book then you feel really special as she makes it an enchanting experience, I can't wait to listen to the next one and find out what happens.
We follow Kara Magari who has fallen into a parallel world and has become the new Vagabond of Ourea. This new world is fraught with obstacles and strange beings, which she has to learn and overcome. She meets Braeden, who becomes her first friend, and the adventure begins. She travels to different world's within Ourea by way of lichgates, trying to discover the map to the vagabond village.
While I really did like this story, at times it was a little slow for me. I didn't skip any pages though. I also found that it was a little bit over detailed. I do like descriptions and details, but at times it just seemed too much. That being said, I will be reading the next book, because I really do like the premise of the story line.
