Book review: Darkspire Reaches by C.N Lesley

Darkspire Reaches is a high fantasy written by by C.N Lesley

51nkk5aa0lRaven can feel the call of the wyvern, even sheltered deep within the woods where she and Margie, an alchemist and botanical healer, live. As a baby Margie rescued Raven from being a sacrifice to the beast, hiding her away. The wyvern seeks her still. Unwilling to surrender that which was his, it will not rest until it has torn her to shreds, or so she was led to believe. Winter is coming, and with a new law passed outlawing magic and sentencing those who practice such crafts to death it seems those who make their living by potion and scrying are set to starve. With no other choice Raven and Margie are forced upon a journey, one where the true nature of all shall be revealed.

I picked up Darkspire Reaches because I was really craving a good high fantasy, and this book did not disappoint. I was hooked from the first page to the last. Invested in Raven’s plight and drawn in to the world of magic and wyverns created by the author. The characters are diverse, entertaining, and most importantly bursting with real personality. This gripping tale with leave you wanting more right until the final page.

Good morning all,

Given the favourable response to the first teaser I posted on social media I’ve decided to post my teasers here now as well until The Severaine is released in September

Without further ado, here is teaser two 🙂

Progress update: The final polishing of The Severaine is underway and I am receiving positive feedback from my beta readers, thank you to those of you out there honouring me with this favour 🙂

I am still working on the synopsis, I find it the most difficult part to write. It is almost right now, it just needs a little tweaking.

I hope you all have an amazing week, I’ll be back soon with my latest book review. Take care.
