Do you ever lost in such a big fantasy and try not to come out of it?

Well, yes that happened to me this very first time.

I was reading this book for a week and maybe more than that and finally, I complete it. I must say it’s a long thick bulky read with a lot of patience having inside me and also a gradually building curiosity was a must.

The storyline is very strong, connective, elaborative, and fancy. The vocabulary is a bit tough and also a certain level of difficulty too for me as Englis

MY TAKE🌼:

"Herlot of alonia is one hell of a book! ", it is an epitome anecdotes fantasy. I haven't read a fantasy novel so good in such a long time. The book is harlot's story, her family, friends and the hardships she faced for being a harbinger. The plot and pace of this book is bang on! The book was quite emotional for me, I felt like there is a lump in my throat after reaching a certain length in the storyline. The world of imagination created by Maria is beautiful and alluring. It's a must
