Aardriyah had always been teased and bullied for her fire red hair in an area of Veros that was filled with the water blessed. She believed herself to be unblessed, while her older brother Chastion had been taken into the royal family and was now Prince Chastion – far removed from the brother she remembered. Her little sister Sonas was water blessed, passing all her tests and trials with ease. With Chastion and Sonas so well respected it was no wonder Aardriyah thought little of herself. With the separation of her parents, Pateras was always by her side, but still she wondered what her future could possibly be.

The night Aardriyah was kidnapped, then rescued by Old Man Teme and Princess Kibo along with Kit, was the start of a horrifying journey where she was hunted by possessors of magic. Would she ever see her family again? Could she survive the mesmerizing hunt of the amulet?

The Unblessed Child is the 1st in The Blessed Chronicles by Aussie author R.J. Kaldanis, (plus it’s also her debut) and is a fascinating, otherworldly look at the New Realm and its inhabitants, the magic of good and evil. The story is intriguing and reads as a book directed at a young adult audience. If you enjoy fantasy/speculative fiction, you will be sure to enjoy this venture into the unknown.

With thanks to the author for my uncorrected proof digital ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.
