Hexborn by A.M. Manay reads like historical fiction, only better. The days of kings, knights, and brutal warfare is a bloody part of history. That is a fact. The author added a wonderful twist—the use of real and deadly curses to maim and kill enemies while casting wards to protect the casters from harm.

The main character, Shiloh, comes to life as a force to be reckoned with. This outwardly frail gal with her pink hair and eyes is taken in by the king after she is grown and only after she proves

I loved Ms. Manay’s November Snow Series. I wondered if a new story line could rival that…yes it could. In fact, it could even surpass it. I found myself drawn deep into "Hexborn". Shiloh grew up considered unclean by the population even though the laws against her kind had disappeared. Shunned, she was being educated to use her strong magic. Dealing with illness and deformity she develops an inner grace and strength. Suddenly when her teacher dies Silas arrives to bring her to the King’s court. ...more
