So I know that I was partly a little hesitant about diving into another very long adult fantasy novel after my previous experience with one. While that one was a standalone, this one was the beginning of a series, an

I got about 55% of the way in and did enjoy it, but its been a rough year and I just don't have the attention span for super long books.

Pros: I liked the characters and the world
Cons: It felt like it should have been split into two books (it kind of is), but also like the first book didn't make a complete story on its own.

This is the first book in the Sanarri chronicles series and it turned so amazing, I completed it recently and I felt this is one of those books that should be read by fans of fantasy and fiction. The last sanarii - Eva, the last true sanarii, uses her forbidden magic despite the risks, not realizing she could irrevocably affect the destinies of Jullayans and Kitarrans alike. Yet caught in the machinations of the Guardians and their prophecy, can she protect those she loves from the menace of dar

What would you do if your child was fore told to be the savior of two races and taken from you to be raised by those you know very little bit about? I pretty sure you would do exactly as our main character Eva has done. Once betrothed to one prince that she did not love and then able to marry his twin who she adores and has a child of prophecy with. What unfolds in this story is a tale of heroics, love, and at the heart a child who is destined to save a dying race.
I have never read or heard any ...more

Child of Kitarra is your classically slow-burn adult fantasy novel. To be able to fully grasp everything around you and the worlds that Andrea Gibb has built, she first must build her enormous web around you and make you comfortable.

Don't let this keep you from fully getting into this novel. Grab a cup of tea, find your favorite blanket and get snuggled into your favorite spot, because you'll be here for a while. I'm glad I took this approach instead of trying to blast through 400 pages in a day

The Child of Kitarra’s book cover drew me in and I was impressed to learn the author, not only created the fascinating story, but did the hypnotic cover art as well.
Have you ever slowed your reading because you didn’t want to come to the end of a story? Well, this is how this engaging tale affected me. I was glad to discover that Book 2 would be released this year.
One character, Stone, I wish to meet in person, but at present he can only exist in my imagination. Pity. I would love to see the

This book was MASSIVE!! Just over 650 pages long its one that you will want to take your time with!! Don't speed through this one because you will get lost!! Take your time and savor every page, because it was just that good! The magic system and world building were A+ and the characters had great development. The length was perfect and I think that it could have been even longer, I didn't want it to end. The villain in this one was great and so much more than what we normally get in these kinds ...more

This is truly an epic read and is one which sweeps the reader up into a wholly new and exciting world. It tells the tale of Eva, a lady of lesser nobility who is rather reluctantly betrothed to the heir to the throne. Gifted with certain powers, Eva has had to keep these gifts hidden for fear of retribution from the feudal and patriarchal society she lives in.

The author has done a superb job of creating a believable and rich realm which is under attack from a vicious and powerful enemy, and the
