A Song of Wraiths and Ruin – Book Review

A Song of Wraiths and Ruin (A Song of Wraiths and Ruin, #1)A Song of Wraiths and Ruin by Roseanne A. Brown
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a fabulous read in a not-your-usual world in the fantasy genre. Great characters, great writing, lots of twists that made me yell out in surprise and a romance that has been through the wringers. And kudos for the cover. Beautiful. I will definitely read the sequel.
There were a couple things that bugged me, not enough to ruin the pleasure of reading it but enough to make me go, “Why?”
There were a few typos throughout the book, a book that is published by one of the big guys of publishing. No fault on the author. Being an author myself I know how many times a book is read and edited before publishing. But it was still a weird thing to find in a traditionally published book.
The other one was that to me the main male character, Malik, comes through as too young to be having romantic feelings for anyone. In fact it wasn’t until well through the middle of the story that I realized he is indeed a teenager, at least 16 years old, possibly older (even though it’s never really stated). I thought he was a ten-eleven year old because he is constantly referred to as a “boy”, and was shocked when he began to have feelings for Karina. She comes through as much older than he is when I believe (I could be wrong) they’re supposed to be about the same age.
Despite this, I so loved this book and can’t wait to read the next one.
