My Rating: 4.5 out of 5

This was a really fun read. Like, really fun. The premise is very unique- the main character, Ereshkigal, lives in Salas, a country divided into three provinces.

The first is Nannaru, the light province in the West. It is always day there- always. At “night,” they inhabitants have to pull shades over the windows to get some sleep. They also have powers of heat, light, etc. It’s “full of light, laughter, and happiness.”

The second is Biri, the grey province, and in the middl

I have to say it was fun reading about someone that loved such creepy things and didn't care what people thought. It wasn't even weird accepting Ereshkigal, its clearly explained that is just how she is, and that she can't really help it. She was pretty awesome, tough when she needed to be but showing just enough insecurity to make her seem more real.

The world building was amazing. . .I ate up every bit of information I could get. The author imagination is truly great to be able to come up with

Review

Wow. It’s been forever since I’ve read a book that wasn’t purely for review purposes. And I have to admit, I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while. I mean I actually bought this one. I know. Kindle Freebie Stalker (me) bought this book. I thought this was an interesting tale about three realms, family, and a quest to bring back the old ways, all while discovering who you are falling in love. This girl has her plate full.

Princess of Death is the first book by Renee Travis that I can say, with a straight face, that I actually liked.

It has a unique world, good characters and a mostly solid plot. The world was creative, though modeled after the Sumerian gods, legends and mythology. The characters were interesting and elaborate, though a little too well-described for my tastes. I like books that leave something for my own imagination to fill in, and this book goes out of its way to over-describe nearly every detail

This is my new book! It is the first of a four part series (hopefully lol) and is a little epic fantasy which is different then what I normally write.

It is steeped in Sumerian mythology and is a retelling of how the death goddess Ereshkigal met her consort Nergal.

It will be up on amazon.com in kindle format it about 12 hours.


Like always I give the .pdf file for those of you who would like to review it. Just send me a message with your email.
