The Lodestar of Ys

The Lodestar of Ys - Amy Rae Durreson I ended up calling Sjurd Squirt Squid "Sword". I can't get past Sjurd *sigh*


I want to read this book for a long long time. Or at least another 2-3 hundred pages :)

The story slowed down considerably towards the middle of the book, but it was never boring. It reminded me of Kirby Crow's "The Peddler and the White Wolf" - not rushed, not sprinkled with sex or murder in every chapter, yet still wonderful in almost each and every way.

A great enemies-to-lovers progression.

The Islands are incredibly beautiful, the universe is begging to be explored more carefully and much deeper, with added history of countries and the conflict.

I truly hope there is going to be more from ARD. Amazing work.


Original picture, that prompted the story
