Darrienia – My Review!!!
I’ve had my eye on Darrienia (The Forgotten Legacies Series Book 1) by K. J. Simmill for a while and it was a great way to end my reviews for 2017! Read on for my thoughts!
Synopsis (from the author):
It is said that the past always returns to haunt you. Yet some forgotten pasts have whispered names and a debt for collection. Dangerous curiosities stir a hidden darkness, one that patiently waits to seize control.
The subtle periphery between dream and reality is in peril and those chosen must face the evil behind this looming disaster. But lurking in the shadows, guiding their hand, lies the true threat and a hidden agenda.
Will they discover the truth in time? Or will those who should be heroes, become nothing more than the pawns of evil?
What I liked:
Darrienia had many things I like to find in fantasy novels. The world building was amazing, the characters well-developed, and the book provided plenty of action, mystery and a grand quest. The intricate plot referenced Greek mythology and the quarrels among the gods, while it kept me guessing about what would happen next. All in all, an excellent fantasy!
What I didn’t like:
At times, Darrienia left me confused as to whether the characters were in the dream world or not. The length of the book also made it a tad difficult for me to keep up with everything that happened. Neither of these things detracted from my overall enjoyment of the novel.
When you read this book, be prepared for an excellent though long read! The intricate plot, interesting characters, the intrigue surrounding Zo and Marise, and the quest make this a fantasy that I highly recommend!
