So new author for me and I believe this is a debut book and for that reason alone this was a pretty impressive endeavour.
An unusual and intriguing read that captured my imagination with its uniqueness.
The language used here had an almost lyrical brilliance to it: weaving an almost mythical web at times with such vivid intensity.
The fantasy setting we are introduced to here, in my opinion, had a very Roman flavour to it and I felt this was heavily influenced by that particular era: very much a

description

So, it was fine. I was originally going to rate it two stars (or two and a half?), but then I remembered that this is the authors first published novel, and with that it mind, it’s actually quite good. You should read it. Go read it.

I was first introduced to Myra Danvers through her short story “Swallowed by Darkness” in the collection: “Alien Alphas Twenty-Three Naughty Sci-Fi Romance Novellas”. And I really loved her short story! I hope she turns it into a fully-fledged novel one day. After

Well, wow. I really wasn't expecting that!

A couple of dark authors I adore were raving about this book, so based on their recommendation I gladly jumped into reading this. I'll put my hands up and admit that I hadn't even really read the blurb, so I really was taking a chance on this. Thankfully it was a chance that more than paid off, even though this wasn't the dark read I'd assumed it would be. All I can say is that Ravenous Innocence had me totally and utterly captivated, leaving me in

I got sent the ARC of this in exchange for an honest review. I have been following the author for a long time and I am a big fan of her, especially as a new author. That's why I was really shocked by how much I really disliked the book. I felt like I had to force myself to finish. If it hadn't been an author that I wanted to like, I would have DNF'd the book about 50 pages in. I was really shocked to find that so many people really loved this book. Did we all read the same book? I'm not trying ...more

I really really wanted to like this one but its a dnf for me at 63%

I cant stand the main character. I think the world building is really cool and I was finally starting to understand some of it. but the MC is just TSL for me. She just doesn't speak up? and keeps putting people in danger and I don't see a reason why she keeps that ring. I get there's probably a change in her later on but her mixed with everyone around her just pushing her on without knowing what she is. I kept hoping for her to

Welcome to Milithia!

I always enjoy finding a new author and Myra Danvers is no exception. I read Ravenous Innocence in one sitting and fell in love immediately. Her debut release introduces us to Milithia which is inhabited by different races such as Tritans and Elorans. We also meet the aggressive, war-like Caledonians.

Our journey begins with a fateful meeting of Mila, a Tritan Senator's daughter, and Capt. Asher Rawlings, a member of the Caledonian Imperial Army who is also an "Elite." Mila

I had the opportunity to receive an ARC and didn't know what to expect but I was surprised .. In a good way!!!! Myra is a great writer and has managed to create a complex world with captivating characters.


In the first place I must highlight:

The plot is very well created, it takes us to a new and exciting world where the war between two nations walks side by side with the desire, the power and who knows something more... something like love?


The characters:

It's downright decadent to be surprised by new storylines and authors these days with the endless streams of remakes and derivative, rehashed tales. I'm happy at the prospects of championing for a new heroine protagonist. The premiere standalone release of an author is a make or break it point for any reader, and I was delighted to see the pages fly until the unwelcomed end. I appreciate the author's confidence at throwing the reader right into the worldbuilding water for sink or swim purposes ...more

Hooked. Need More. I read the Last Tristan when it was first on Lit so when I found out Myra was changing it and publishing I was on the edge of my seat. She definitely didn’t disappoint. I finished the book in one sitting and didn’t sleep through the night. Both Asher and Mila still as wilful and enigmatic as the first rendition. I’m keen to see where this bond takes them and how they explore it - I have an idea of how it will play out because of Lit but I’m still so excited to both relive the ...more

This was a great book to start off this series. I got an ARC copy of this book to review. And I have to admit it wasn't completely what I expected. But I still ended up reading it in one day!

The main character was very well developed, and she just keeps growing and learning throughout the book. The other characters were also very well written and just made the story that much richer! The ending does leave you hanging. So I can't wait to find out what happens next. If you like the unexpected and

As I suspected, a tremendous cliffhanger. I might read the next book, if it concludes this tale. Otherwise, I'll wait or pass. I thought the book was kind of overwritten in a way. It was really hard to follow at certain points, so I skimmed. Very mystical with ki that seemed to be chi? Ended right when it became interesting.

Ugh

Ends at 89%. Weird words for things and speaking that I struggled to keep up with. No real romance or connections.

This was an interesting introduction of a new world.
I liked that the h was innocent but not a dormant. She new and recognized her flaws and learn from them.
I really want to know more of this world and the powers that they have.
I need book two because I was left with so many questions.
I love to read fantasy and this was a great surprise

Love this book! It’s fresh and different, with a big story to tell and lots of secrets to uncover.

Fair warning, it’s a little confusing and slow in the beginning, but a lot of information and world building has to be quickly established for a richly-drawn story like this.

Stick with it, though. It’s worth it. Some unfamiliar words and concepts (Trila-Glis, etc), make it difficult to follow at first, but once that foundation is laid, the story kicks into gear.

While there’s not a lot of Asher in

Incredible debut novel by Myra Danvers! This may be one of the most original stories I've read in quite some time. Myra Danvers is an exceptional story teller who truly excels at world building. She invites the reader into a new vibrant world populated with complex multi-dimensional characters. The story sucked me in from the first page and definitely left me wanting more at the end. I love rooting for strong heroines who fight for what they believe in and I got that in spades in Mila. I am ...more

The Last Tritan, Book 1. Once unleashed, can immeasurable power ever be contained?

Even now, I wonder. If I just hadn’t… Why did I? It was so easy. What harm could it possibly do? I’m just Mila Tannovic. Only one other knows who, what, I am. How could a mere sip, or two, or three, of ki hurt? But there I was. Alone, unknowing, unsuspecting. And then—there HE was. Asher appears out of nowhere. Forbidden, tempting, enticing, then—gone! But he KNOWS! And he STEALS! How? Just…how? Then, he’s back,

For those who enjoy the fantasy genre, this is a must read!
The story line is very complex but well thought out and highly engaging- Action, Suspense, Magic, lots of Mayhem and even a bit of Angst
This is not an easy read - This is an elaborate story line with complex characters - perfect for those who enjoy being transported to another realm when they read
The author has created an ornate and detailed universe that allows for so much potential and growth in future releases

Okay, I have a lot of feelings about this book. The first half of this review will only apply to those who have read The Last Tritan before its book adaptation. So let’s jump into those feelings first.

I’ve been a huge fan of TLT since the beginning. I’ve actually been following the story since chapter one was posted on Lit. It quickly became my favorite story. Even though there were some little plot holes and minor flaws, when TLT was finished in its original form I felt the story was

3 1/2 stars. I'm intrigued by this story and look forward to reading more but I am also a bit confused about how I feel about some of it.

The blurb indicates a much darker story than this book turns out to be but there is the potential for it to go dark. I don't have a problem with that but it is a bit misleading.

Particularly in the beginning, the ki-sense experience, seems to me, is written a little awkwardly. Maybe it came off that way because the reader is thrown into it quickly without an

I have to say that I was so excited about the release of this book. Myra Danvers is an author I have followed for a while, although this is her debut book on official platforms.
Once I started reading Ravenous Innocence, I couldn’t put it down. There was a perfect balance of setting the story, action and internal dialogue, with high emotion and constant intrigue throughout. She has a beautiful writing style, leading each thought and action onto the next in a seemingly effortless weaving of the

Book Summary (tried to be vague)

This is Danvers debut book--and I was not disappointed. In this Fantasy/Sci-Fi world, Mila is a Tritan and is hiding a huge secret from the rest of her fellow Tritans. On an excursion in the city, Mila crosses paths with Captin Asher Rawlings from a neighboring Government/city known as The Caledonians. He quickly catches on to her secret and makes her his prey.

You are quickly drawn into the Tritan world. It was a great pace and didn't feel too fast/lack of

I've followed Myra from when The Last Tritan originally graced our eyes so many years ago. It was a long anticipated piece to be published. Readers were warned that it had become different, that it had grown... matured from version one to what we see here. Which is true. My memories of the story previously are but shadows of what the story has become.

I'm used to fast paced, complete novels instead of series that build the world slowly but in much greater depth. As such, it was initially hard for

This book was recommended to me by some of my favorite dark romance authors, so I was expecting a dark, twisted romance. That isn't exactly what I got, but I can see it happening in the future. This is the beginning of what I'm guessing is going to be an incredible series. The characters are dark and twisted, there are a lot of unknowns still, and I was surprised by many of the events in the plot. I read a lot, so surprising me isn't something all authors can do, and for a debut story to have my ...more

This is a debut book by a new author. I always know going into a book that is the first EVER that there is something special about it because it takes commitment, dedication, and vulnerability to put one's passion out in the world. This is especially true in a book such as this one where it is creating a fictional time and place amidst a paranormal backdrop. It isn't just like creating a made-up place in anywhere USA. It is for that reason, that I give this author kudos because I

Myra has a way with words that will suck you into a book and transport you to another time. The only issue that I had with my transportation was I really didn't understand where I was transported to and what the people were. now with that being said I still really enjoyed the book and I'm hoping that in the second book things will come together just a little bit more for me personally.

This is the first book in the "The Last Tritan"series, and it mainly explains the world and sets up the main characters, most importantly the heroine of the series - Mila. She is the strong willed daughter of a senator, and born with a great affinity for feeling and even manipulating the energy/ki of people. Women with this gift in this world traditionally belongs to the temples as priestesses, and most priestesses can only feel energy and not manipulate it, so she is very rare indeed. What ...more
