When I picked up Trinity, I didn't know what to expect. Normally I stay away from epic fantasy, but after reading this, I must say that I don't regret it.

The world is vivid and its characters and history detailed and intriguing. As soon as I began reading, I succumbed to the story and when the action picked up only moments later, I was hooked. The trio of characters was unique and their dialogue and relationships real and heart-wrenching.

The characters struggle through cities filled with people

Wow, what an adventure!

I truly enjoyed reading Trinity. It is the story of Kiana, a young woman, who has been locked away all her life because she is a goddess reincarnated, and there are those who will stop at nothing to see her destroyed. Then her tower is attacked. It happened so suddenly, it took me by surprise. I was like, whoa, what just happened. So I reread, and the whole place just exploded. Kiana is now on the run, and she decides she's going to find peace between her people and her

4.5 stars. One I got into the book I got pulled into the story. It is a great book and I recommend it to anyone who likes historical and fantasy. Now I know people don't like this but it does leave you hanging at the end.

A good fast paced fantasy story with everything a good fantasy needs: a mystery, a lovestory, magic and betrail.

I loved it.

Recommends it for: epic fantasy readers who like a good dollop of romance
Shelves: e-book, own-it
Let's say that's a 3.5 stars...

It was an interesting read for me. I admit, I read books very differently since I took up writing myself, so it can make it harder to review.
This one was particularly interesting because it is Epic Fantasy, and yet manages to be character-driven. There is a "bigger picture" going on, but there were points in there when I really started to root for the characters.
That being said, there were other times when I was thrown out of the characters and knew I was reading

First let's take some minutes and admire the cover. This is what i'm talking about! Beautiful and original!

Now let's get on to the story...In general i can say it's a quite captivating story. Lots of action, magic and mystery and completely adventurous. From the first pages to the last ones it keeps you at the edge of your sit. And not only that but it's original too. Completely different than what i've read so far which it was a nice surprise. Who doesn't love to read something different?

I read Trinity in a total of three days, on what little downtime I get while on the bus that takes me to work and back, and I have to say, it's been a wild, mindblowing and at times heartwrenching journey. Davidson's writing flows effortlessly between introspection, description, dialogue, exploration, arcane magics and breathless fight scenes. While I felt some phases near the end needed to be developed more, as well as Kiana herself (at times I had the impression the story was more about Skaric ...more

Trinity captured me from the first draft. I was drawn into the story immediately and was thrown into riveting action when the Wolves attack. Clare has an amazing gift for writing characters and driving emotion into the story. I fell in love with all the characters and rooted them throughout the novel. I love the tension and conflict between the two male characters and the naïve, empathetic female who stood between them. Every character has demons they had to face and it was a delight to watch ...more

I loved the concept of the broken triad in this story. The idea of a god reincarnated in a person and another god being dead was fascinating. I would love to be able to create worlds like this in my mind. The creativity and detail was amazing.

Kiana is innocence and purity incarnate, and her guardian Nidan has the healing strength of the God of body inside him. Skaric comes from those out to avenge the death of the God of souls by killing Kiana the incarnate of the God of the mind. Needless to

TRINITY is exactly the kind of YA Fantasy I love to read. Powerful, character-driven, vivid world, and awesome story. The author was able to make me love these characters deeply, and I can tell it's a story I'll be thinking about for some time. There were some typos here and there, but nothing to draw me out of the reading experience.

One thing, I would have loved more of a denouement at the end, to show the characters healing, getting back to their lives a little bit more. Still, the conflict

What a great story!

A vivid and tactile read. Trinity grabs you and won't let go! Outstanding scenery and ambiance painted expertly to hold a very appealing set of characters traversing a life changing set of events. Though life did not allow me the luxury this time through, Trinity is a book that most readers will find themselves blazing through all of it's 269 pages (paperback) in one sitting. Clare proves her talent for plucking the reader from this world and thrusting them into the reality

Trinity by Clare Davidson is a unique and touching tale full of mystique, three ancient gods, and a special girl with big dreams.

This story is always a treat to read, in fact, I just finished reading it for the third time, although I kept forgetting to leave a review until now. The author does a number of things right that leave the reader sucked in and engaged in the action on every page.

First off, the land of Gettryne is a unique place with people who believe in three ancient gods, although
I don't understand why this book has such good ratings. I was so excited about it, and then I actually read it and let me just tell you, I'm disappointed.
There is one thing I can't overlook when reading: the characters (and that's why I have so much trouble reading anything besides novels). In this book, the characters felt lifeless - especially Kiana. We are given close to no insight into their thoughts, feelings, hopes or whatever, which makes it hard to relate to them. They also get hurt an

There was some fantastic world building here and an incredibly visual style of writing which I very much enjoyed. Skaric was an amazingly complex character but I never felt like I got to know Kiana or Nidan that well. Yet again, a highly original and interesting premise, Clare seems to have a knack for spotting them.

I'd like to point out that I know Clare from Twitter, but I purchased the book like everyone else and reviewed it without being asked to.
