Trouganda is the first of a five book series. It focuses on Nakiata,The First of five individuals (seeing a pattern here?) destined for some act of greatness. On the surface I really like Nakiata. She is a strong warrior woman and I generally love strong female characters. Unfortunately I found her (and almost everyone except for Dravone) flat and emotionless. Her first response to any challenge is violence. Granted, she has been trained to be that way, but this repeated one trick left no room f ...more

AMAZING! I really enjoyed this book! Give me a prophecy, a tough girl as the main character, a quest and I'm in!

Trouganda is a world full of danger, mystery, wonder, and is no match for Nakiata!

Nakiata is "The First" to come of the Prophecy that was foretold almost a millennia ago. She is a major force to be reckoned with after being trained in the art of SOT for years on end. She has become a deadly weapon. Now Nakiata is on a quest to find The Black Door as her final test. She will face deadly

A prophesy was written many years ago on another world and when a baby girl is born with a birthmark like the one described in it her parents fear she is in grave danger and they take her and flee for their lives. They find refuge in the village of Jin and they persuade the greatest SOT master ever to train her in his skills. Nakiata works hard at her studies and has to leave as part of her Final Test to go across the world of Trouganda facing danger at every turn - meaning she has to use all th ...more

I wanted to love this book. It sounded really great.
I loved that the main character, was female and she had an important destiny.
I could tell right away she was going to be a strong character and honestly I think we need more of those.

I didn't love the authors writing style. I couldn't lose myself in this book. There was no getting lost in the pages because the words just flowed so well.

Instead I was constantly jarred out of the pages from too much detail, and writing I couldn't connect with.

I was not able to finish Trouganda for many reasons. The dialogue was stilted and didn't ring true to me, there was no real tension despite the difficult situations the characters found themselves in (they were able to solve their problems immediately), the font choices were eye-straining, and the amount of grammatical mistakes made reading frustrating. I also greatly disliked the use of an acronym in the book's setting for Shadow of Thought (the magic system of the story). Especially since when ...more
