Magical March Challenge
I read this book at the beginning of the month, but my schedule has been so eratic this month, I just now am getting around to posting about it. Sorry!
Gift of Magic by Lynn Kurland is the third book in the second trilogy in the Nine Kingdoms series. Yes, that’s a lot of math and yes, that will be the last math I’ll subject you to.
Gift of Magic is a sweet romance, and the characters are definitely enjoyable. I think the plot was not quite as strong as the first trilogy, there didn’t seem to be quite as much conflict. But hey, it didn’t promise to be Game of Thrones, did it now? ;o)
Honestly though, I did enjoy the book. It was a great light read. Kurland has created a detailed fantasy world, with complex backstory and several systems of magic. Her story bible for the Nine Kingdoms must weigh a ton! Hardcore fantasy fans will likely be disappointed because she doesn’t go into as much depgh with the magic as a true fantasy, but romance fans will enjoy emensely. I recommend it for a great, light romantic read, but you should definietly check out the first series too!
Have a great day, everyone!
