My Review:

Mallie is a courageous girl living in dangerous times. Her mother has helped her train to be a guardian. Her father calls her his warrior and her younger sister his princess. He loves power and desires an alliance with evil men. The two sisters are caught in the middle. Mallie must make tough choices. She's willing to sacrifice her love for her people's well-being. Will it be enough?

This is the first book in the Dark Powers Rising series. It has a satisfying ending, but you know that there's still more to come. The author does a great job in creating the adventure and the peril. None of the characters are perfect or over the top, which is in keeping with the dystopian theme. They are not superheroes; they are people trying to survive. I'm looking forward to what comes next!

About the Author:
Rebecca Fernfield

Rebecca Fernfield

British author, Rebecca Fernfield, is a lapsed medievalist who spends her days plotting the overthrow of evil regimes and devising intricate plans to rescue their victims. She’s also given to flights of fancy about the end of the world and what she’d do if the supermarkets suddenly ran out of chocolate, wine and other essentials!

She lives among the flatlands of the Humber estuary where Vikings and Saxons once fought and where, sometimes, on foggy mornings, you can still hear the echoes of clashing swords.
