After her mother is captured by elves, young Samara travel across a vivid, colorful, imaginary landscape, guided by an internal voice, which both enlightens and frightens. She is taught to release an inner power, and she must do so to save her tribe and rescue her mother. Samara is one you grow to adore and root for.
It's both a great YA novel and adult dark fantasy. It is said, "A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children isn't a good children's story in the slightest." Well, that is certainly true with THE UNFETTERED CHILD. The novel says a lot about family values and love. Author Michael C. Sahd has a great knack for story-telling, weaving in a diverse cast of characters with many plot surprises. Frankly, the book was addicting.
Upon realizing that he's lost a good portion of his tribe, and clueless to his daughter Samara's power, Orin sets out to find his wife and take down the elves who destroyed their grounds. What ensues is a quest to fight, to understand, and to reconnect family members.
While a fantasy novel involving magic, this book centers a lot around the characters, their desire to reconnect with their lost family members, and in Orin's case, his quest to find his wife and take down the elves. He's a very angry character, who is hot-headed and quick to act. He's incredibly skilled when it comes to fighting and he's ruled by his anger and his family. I thought what we learned of the elves had a lot of potential, especially with the way things finished out. I also especially liked the Khaliji, traveling performers that Samara traveled with, namely Varisha and Omar (and wouldn't mind seeing them in another book).
This was a fun story with many elements of various magic. It was a unique fantasy that had a young girl at its center, and Sahd made it work. Samara was incredibly powerful, and once grown out of the whims of a child, could be the force to be reckoned with. The only thing I questioned was when he wrote that Sigmia had one more task, but we never found out what that was. I initially agreed to read The Unfettered Child because my niece shares our main character's name, and I'm so glad I agreed because this turned into such a pleasant surprise.
This book is not my typical read, and I didn’t know what to expect going in, but The Unfettered Child was a pleasant surprise of a book. It will take you on an emotional roller coaster from beginning until end, and the ancient world that is built through this story is endlessly interesting. With several different types of beings and very intriguing magical powers, this book will keep you in a constant state of wonder.
The characters feel very realistic and unique, and I really admired young Samara’s courage throughout the story. Her character really grew and developed throughout the story, and it was an impressive journey to witness.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a magical, emotional tale of love and sacrifice.
