Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Superb start to new series – Crown of Bones by A.K. Wilder – very highly recommend!!

 

Title: Crown of Bones

Series: Crown of Bones #1

Author: A.K. Wilder

 

My Review:

WOW!!! This book may be published for teenagers but, personally, I think it will appeal to anyone who enjoys action packed sci-fi/fantasy heroic adventures. It is the first book in a new series and it is a series I really want to read more of (and I’m definitely not a teenager!)

The world building in this book is, quite simply, superb. The story is set in a world where savants are able to project and control a phantom. The phantoms come in different forms an have one or two special skills which only their savant can direct. Those gifted with this ability are identified as children and are encouraged to develop their control and skills.

This story centres around the young heir to Baiseen, Marcus, and his friend, Ash. Marcus struggles to get his phantom to form properly but once he does he is sent to the Isle of Aku to train. This is the start of an epic journey, one fraught with betrayal, double dealing, deceit and danger. It is one filled with friendship, strangers, secrets, knowledge and surprises. I found it very easy to relate to the characters and engage with the action packed story, turning the pages and not wanting to put the book down and, now I’ve finished it, I can’t wait to read the next book(s) in the series, especially as I want to know what happens to Ash next!

Thanks to Entangled and NetGalley for my copy of this book which I have voluntarily read and honestly reviewed.
