A Joyfully Jay review.

3.5 stars

Fair warning– for those looking for a romance, this is not it. There are several people for whom Solin expresses attraction and the one romantic relationship given any page time has nothing to do with Jemier. That being said, I like Flicker and think it’s a solid sci-fi/fantasy debut. However, it’s one of those books filled with some really good writing, characters, and narrative elements that is also hampered a bit by its inconsistent use of the writing tools it

A Joyfully Jay review.


Solin Felwing has never had an easy life. Second son to the King of the Drankanthropes, Solin was bullied and beaten by his brother, Crown Prince Varin, and learned early that no matter how cruel, depraved, or horrible Varin was, no one would curb the violent tendencies of the next ruler, not even his small group of noble friends. Being a rare illusory mage, studious, and proficient in telekinetic and fire magicks, Solin becomes dependent on his magicks for protection

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

The writing was very good and the storyline also compelling. I was expecting more of a romance though, which is why I thought the story of the book would be complete but it isn't. This is a fantasy series that I expect will continue to be centered around Solin. I hoped to have this book about Solin and whoever he ended up with and then the other books about other couples.
This should probably be made clearer in the blurb, which is a little sh
I thought this was the start of a queer fantasy romance series with each book revolving around a different couple/relationship. Turns out it is queer fantasy series with some romantic elements. It's a small difference but I'm not a massive fantasy fan was mainly buying this for the romance plot.

As far as I can tell this is a well written contemporary fantasy book. The central character of Solin is intriguing and I like the world-building. I just wasn't invested in the plot and struggled to stay

Flicker is an engaging read. I was absolutely sucked into Solin's story from the first page. It was hours before I came up for air, and I couldn't believe how much time had passed I was so engrossed in the story. You get to see Solin's life both currently on Earth and before in his home planet, pre-exile. I cannot recommend this enough if you enjoy a but of sci-fi mixed with magic. A need for redemption, and a need to save his friends from those who would end them all, Solin is a hero you'll ins ...more

I LOVED this book so much! The writing style, the characters, the story - it was awesome. I was so surprised when it ended, because I was not ready to part with Solin just yet. I hoping and wishing to be able to read the second book soon, since I won't be able to wait. I want to continue this awesome story.
Thanks for the ARC, Netgalley

This was a great start to the series.
I fell in love with the world building and the characters were likeable and interesting.
The author's writing style appealed to me and the world building was unique and engaging.
The overall storyline was compelling and I can't wait for the other characters to get their own books.
