    I like the story and the concept. The characters were good and I loved Fox. But the pace was slow and as I got more than halfway through, it became very obvious that this was a set up for a series. That always kind of bums me out. I would rather have a nice, complete story than a lot of laying of the groundwork. Hopefully the next one will further the story a little more.

    I want to start out by saying that I lost the notepaper with all of my notes on it,s so we're winging this review! (which, let's be honest, my winged review are interesting, to say the least!)

    I traided for this ARC, so I have no thank yous to say except for the person who traded this to me ><
    I love following stories about bards and knight and blacksmiths, because we really don't have enough of these stories nowadays1 I think the knight tale and anything relating to it was overdone years

    ngl... anything that likens itself to an ember and the ashes AND six of crows has some big shoes to fill.

    Disclaimer - I read this book as an ARC that was gifted to me.

    Overall I really enjoyed this book! The characters were intriguing, and the worldbuilding was absolutely beautiful. I loved the concept of the Loresmith as well. It falls into the chosen one trope, but the concept is different enough that it doesnt feel like a repetition of the same fantasy themes that are so often seen in YA books.

    The major drawback for me with this book was the writing style. Its very passive, which made it hard

    I received this book from a contest free and this is an honest review.

    I really enjoy the action in this book. It kept me wondering what was going to come next! Ara was a very brave young girl that faced lots of challenges in her young life. The trials that the Travelers went through was difficult and sometimes threatened to pull them apart! Can wait to see want happens next!

    I very much enjoyed this. It felt like a cross between Lord of the Rings with the group of characters you have and Clash of the Titans the movie with the gods that are involved.
