Summary of the Book:
Once upon a time, there was something called the sun… In a kingdom ruled by an evil witch, the sun is just part of a legend about light-filled days of old. Luckily for everybody in the kingdom, Siria Nightingale is headed to the heart of the darkness to try and restore the light–or she will lose everything trying.
Sixteen year-old Siria Nightingale has never seen the sun. The light is dangerous, according to Queen Iyzabel, an evil witch who has shrouded the kingdom in shadow.
Siria has always hated the darkness and revels in the stories of the light-filled old days that she hears from her best friend and his grandfather. Besides them, nobody else understands her fascination with the sun, especially not her strict and demanding parents. Siria’s need to please them is greater even than her fear of the dark. So she heads to the royal city–the very center of the darkness–for a chance at a place in Queen Iyzabel’s court.
But what Siria discovers at the Choosing Ball sends her on a quest toward the last vestiges of the sun with a ragtag group of rebels who could help her bring back the Light… or doom the kingdom to shadow forever.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I love discovering new authors. This is wonderful debut novel. Imagine living in a world where sun filled days are things of legends. Siria has a obsessing with finding away to bring light back to the world. There are very few in her life that understand and she has this fear of the dark. Queen Iyzabel tells the people that the light is bad for them. Siria travel to the royal city to the heart of the darkness to find a place among the court. She meets others who are willing to help her try to find away to bring back the light. It is so intense and I enjoyed it.
My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
