Pre-order Allaigna’s Song: Overture by JM Landels
here, in beautiful print.
A great new read in fantasy, Allaigna’s Song: Overture never fails to intrigue and satisfy my love of adventure and superbly drawn characters.
From the very first page, JM Landels draws us into Allaigna’s brilliantly observed world, a land rich in conflict and magic. Jen is a gifted storyteller and gives her readers those greatest of rewards, surprise turns and great character growth and transformation. Subtle and powerful, her writing always pleases.
In her first paragraphs, Jen shows her craft and genius in world-building, centering the reader firmly in a resonant family picture, rooting us into a land teetering on the verge of war. Danger gathers all around the flawed and appealing young Allaigna. Royal and empowered with magical abilities she has yet to discover, she feels the same fears that any young child might fear, of loss of a mother’s attention, and an uncertain place in her father’s kingdom.
Jen had me at Allaigna’s first song, when the little girl comes close to killing the new prince, her brother. It’s a book you won’t be able to put down.
