Sedrak visits her village and destroys everyone and everything, and now she is on a journey with Jakail to find the killer and destroy it.
What I liked best about the book?
I love the fact that the names are easily read and remembered. I really connected with the characters loving Raki, such a sweet girl, and the lovely Jakai ;) All of the characters came alive for me bringing a sense of thrilling intensity. I just loved the Wizard of Light, such a likeable and clever character in a bumbling kind of way.
It was a great start with the would be warriors just as ordinary people without throwing powers about. I love how I was not overwhelmed with more fantasy than I could handle, there was a good balance to it.
The story becomes exciting as the two start a journey together which could result in their deaths, bringing an uncertainty as I read on. I loved the fact that it was not overly violent or sexual, which was an important like for me, and this did not detract from the fighting/battle and most tender scenes. Such a breath of fresh air.
What was a niggle for me:
For me at the beginning there was a little too much descriptive prose, a little less would have enabled me to form my own images in my head. I really enjoy picturing mental images from a story bringing it alive as I read. No matter though, because as the story progresses Mills gets into her stride and brought the land alive and I saw it so clearly.
Not sure about the book cover as it doesn't immediately show that it's a fantasy type genre.
Would I recommend this book? - Absolutely
I would recommend this fantasy as a thoroughly good read for any age especially YA. As a very much long past YA myself (more of a YS-young senior) it held my interest and excitement right up till the end which was not disappointing
Many thanks to the author for gifting me a copy of this book.
The story flow well and it is easy to feel that you are a part of the book. It is easy to follow and stay with the story. There is an excitement to this book and it is brilliantly written. I found the descriptiveness to be good. it gave enough information to allow images to form, but enough room to allow each reader to visualise it their own way.
Overall this is a very enjoyable read. It is an ideal book to curl up with on a winter's night. This book is a YA fantasy book, but if you are older (like me) don't be put off picking it up.
This is a mythological tale, but the characters react in a very natural manner, to each other and to the dangers that they face. I thought that the author dealt with this very skilfully, particularly as Raki becomes aware of her destiny. In fact all the characters are well rounded, at times I even felt sorry for the antagonist, Sedrak.
All in all this is a well executed and thoroughly enjoyable YA tale that I would recommend.
I was gifted this book, Peril: The Legend of Sedark by Jackie G Mills, by the author. The story centres on Raki who loses her family. She sets out on a quest to destroy the evil Sedark, with a strange and somewhat dark company named Jakail.
The story is fast pasted with interesting and surprising turns. I really enjoyed the imaginative and witty dialogue. With great character development this author really draws you into her strange and dangerous world.
I loved this story and highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for some excitement in their lives. I give this book a full 5 stars. Check out Jackie's blog here http://jackiegmills.wordpress.com/
