I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I want to thank Moud Adel for this gift, and for putting such tremendous trust in me. I’ll try to make this review as thorough as I can.

The short version is, I did have a good time reading this book, and slid through it more easily than many others I’ve read. But while I did have a good read, I’m also mourning the purely fantastic book it could have been, with some more edits. A few years ago, I read a self-published book by

*3.5

I really liked where this first installment of the series took us! It was easy for me to jump into the world because I had read the 2 prequel novels. Even if I hadn’t, the author described it fairly well giving you an understanding of the environment and the multiple magic systems involved.

I liked the team based quest aspect to the storyline. It reminded me of the Hunger Games in the sense that they are all competing (and can’t stop even if there is a loss of life) to be the first team to co

When I first saw the cover for this one, I wasn’t immediately sucked in. I think that the cover actually downplays the action and adventure that awaits in this story.

Kalita is the current leader of Mastoperia, a hidden continent that is divided into four different factions: Delphia, Lunar, Averett, and Kala. The time has come for a new leader and her three lead warriors to be chosen. Four warriors (Evailen, Jihave, Rondai, and Kawan) were nominated from their respective factions. The leader will

Simply amazing book. Action, adventure, mayhem, death and a few plot twists. It's an emotional ride from beginning to end, but one that I am so glad that I took. You meet 4 young people who are picked by their local factions to try to be the next ruler of Mastoperia, their continent. Each of them is asked to pick 3 people to join them on their quest. And from there, you're on the rollercoaster ride with them as they navigate each other, their own faction as well as that of the others and the cha ...more

The new 5 have been chosen, but in order to determine who will be the leader, they must venture out to the 4 continents surrounding Mastoperi

DISCLAIMER: A review copy of this book was sent to me in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own!

What I liked

First of all I appreciated the fact, that the chapters were so short. Which means that the book didn‘t take all my time to finish it. I prefer shorter chapters to longer ones because a) I can easily take breaks and b) the books is much more fast-paced which you know is my cup of tea. Longer ch

This is an interesting series.

I really liked the premise of the book. A group of four people from different factions are brought together for a competition. One of them will become the ruler of Mastoperia and the others will be their guards. They are each able to bring four people from their homelands. However, the twist is that their teams end up being a mix of people from each different faction. Then, they each have to work together with their opponents from different factions to win the posit

Amazing series! I just finished reading this book and I couldn't wait to buy the next one! I had previously read the other 2 books of the series and can say this is the kind of book that sucks you in completely, with its story, plots and characters. The writing and the editing can use some improvement (language that sounds a bit unnatural even though correct, descriptions that are too factual, some relevant moments that are not detailed enough) and the way the story is structured and presented d ...more

Wow! The prior novellas in this series leading up to Book One didn't prepare me for all the twists, turns, and discoveries. And the ending...? You will not see it coming.

The story itself is just part of what made this book so fun to read. In The Forbidden Warriors you'll also find a diverse cast of characters, all of them so fascinating that you'll have a hard time choosing who to root for. I know I did.

And I can't wait to read the next in the series.

Dare u to figure this book out with all its exciting twists and turns...

Loved getting to know this new characters with very distinct personalities as they themselfs learn about each other. They creat a strong bond where before their was only an inherited mistrust and misunderstanding about each others fractions. So curious if this strong bond will lead to a change for their whole fraction system. Excited to read more ^_^

Unlike most authors, I can’t tell you that I have been writing since I was a kid, or that I grew up reading classics and list to you all of those authors who influenced me. My older sister was the avid reader of the family and the one tasked with telling bedtime stories to me and my younger brother. It was her who put the seed of story telling in my heart and for that I am forever grateful. That s ...more
