Thank you to Reedsy for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

3/5 stars

While not the most perfectly executed book, The Crimson Script contained undertones of important messages wrapped up in a thrilling high fantasy adventure.

The Crimson Script is an indie book. Indie books tend to be a mixed bag: most of them could use improvement, but once in a while you find a gem hidden amongst rocks. While The Crimson Script wasn't quite perfect, it was

The Crimson Script is a captivating, topical novel that follows the path of Lyra Alpheri; the daughter of Maellon Alpheri, Magister in the city of Abys-Luthil – one of few men willing to speak out against a tide of silence being imposed High-Magister Nihilo and his fellows. One unfortunate event leads to another, putting Lyra on the path of revenge against those that have done her and her family wrong, in what seems a tried-and-tested narrative of good vs evil.

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

The Crimson Script is a tale of two halves. The latter half is fun, fast-paced, action-packed and a lot of interesting stuff is revealed. The first half is everything the second half wasn't. It started out with promise but very quickly it became bogged down in unnecessarily large info dumps (these would go on for pages every time a new character or place name was introduced and really took me away from the story).

I received an Advance Reader Copy of the book to review. I found The Crimson Script to be an exciting read that draws you in and makes you want to know what happens next. It centres around Lyra Alpheri, the vivacious daughter of politician Maellon, and her response to an unjust tragedy. I felt that I got to know the characters well, and I enjoyed how the author brought them all together by the end, making the book feel very three-dimensional. Without intruding on the drama of the story it also r ...more
