I got the feeling that the readers are supposed to be captivated by Zez - not that I wasn't, but Ilias was the one who drew my attention. He showed you how to walk out your faith when you are surrounded by those who don't believe like you and possibly want to kill you for you beliefs. The author did a splendid job of weaving the Christian message in the story - it was not preachy or overly overt so as to turn off the reader who may not be a Christian. I also love the spiritual warfare bits that are in the book.
Now if I had to rate this book I would give it 3.5 stars because of the slow start and we know if you don't capture readers in the first few pages you can lose them, but since there are no half-rating points, I will give it a 4. Yes, I'm interested in reading the next book in the series.
I like this book so much that I read it a second time. Sometimes I thought that the book should be longer to get better some scenes. I liked very much the other characters who helped her to develop her talents and who became a family for her.
I will definitely read the whole series!
Hadrian, every bit as dutiful as Zezilia, has stepped into one of the most powerful positions in the government - and everything is going wrong. Prejudice against him is high, as he refuses to follow the goddess that most of the people serve. He is a regular target for assassination, and he is faced with terrible decisions that will with either save - or destroy - the country.
Seventh born is a sweet but slightly slow beginning to what looks to become a very interesting series. The details of the characters' telepathic abilities are very well thought out, but on occasion can turn slightly confusing.
The world building was solid and descriptions of the country were vivid and lovely. I did have a bit of difficulty figuring out some of the fantasy words/titles/season and such. A glossary would definitely not go unappreciated.
The main characters were very enjoyable - especially Hadrian. His parts in story were definitely my favorites. Zezilia, however, seemed almost too perfect at times, both with her personality and with her power training. Is there nothing she can't do? I hope that in the sequels we get to see more depth - and maybe some more powerful weaknesses than the minor character flaws she shows.
The romance is only in the very beginning stages in this novel. It's really more of just a close friendship right now. It is building up to be one of the usual forbidden romances, but at least there has been no hint of the dreaded insta-love problem, nor any unwanted love triangles. Just a gentle, slow burn type romance, which is really much more realistic.
I suppose this review seems a bit on the critical side, but I really did enjoy this book. I do believe this is one of the better books she has written and I hope that Rossano puts out the sequels very soon because I am eager to see how everything plays out.
Drinking / drugs: Nothing I can remember.
Violence: minimal. no blood. several assassination attempts and threats.
Other: The enemy does utilize the power of mind control. This doesn't bother me, but some people might be more sensitive about this.
Zezilia is an interesting character, humble yet highly gifted and intelligent. Hadrian is the reluctant hero, holding fast while surrounded by corruption and power-seeking. I can't wait to see what comes next for them.
I received an ARC copy and chose to write a review.
A worshipper of the Almighty God in a realm controlled by idolatry, Hadrian rises to the second highest position in the kingdom and becomes the target of vengeful men determined to destroy him.
Seventh Born is a fascinating book with well crafted characters and rich world building. Though the story starts out slowly, the deep, personal characters keep your attention to the end. I am certainly looking forward to the next book!
I received this book as an ARC, but my review is given honestly and willingly.
