“SORCERY OF THORNS” MY READING CRUSH FOR 2020!
My current read “Sorcery Of Thorns” by Margaret Rogerson smells like a crush!
I’m halfway through this standalone fantasy book and I can’t wait to tell you all about it, I already know it’s a crush, and I definitely don’t want it to end!
First, let’s talk about the cover?
Getting back to “Sorcery Of Thorns” by Margaret Rogerson. It’s a magical, sometimes dark universe. A heroine, Elisabeth – very, very tall, anything but annoying; I’d say she’s badass – apprentice guardian of more or less dangerous living grimoires! An enigmatic sorcerer, cynical beyond measure and damaged by his past. A fashionable, snobbish demon so inaccessible and enigmatic that you want to know everything about him. A refreshing best friend. And many other characters. But there’s also a touch of the Harry Potter Atmosphere in this book, especially with the presence of these living grimoires that sing, get sick, and have strong characters. Lastly, “Sorcery Of Thorns” it’s a conspiracy to foil and a romance that is subtly interwoven and not the mainstay of the story (although an early scene might suggest otherwise). The whole is supported by a fluid and frankly brilliant writing style. Beautiful “images” abound. And the characters’ attitudes, settings, street scenes, and actions are strikingly realistic.
This book is one of my favourites!
If you haven’t read it yet and I’ve whetted your appetite, go for it! If you’re looking for a Christmas gift, “go for it!” And if you’ve already read it, don’t hesitate to tell me what you thought in the comments.
See you soon and take care!
