Broken Forest - Eliza Tilton

Avikar embarks on a mission to save his sister Jeslyn who's been kidnapped and taken into the mythical country of Daath.


In the beginning I had some trouble focussing on this book, mainly because it doesn't involve one first person POV, but multiple first person POVs. Especially when the scene wasn't completely set yet this was confusing. There were some thing in the story that I really liked and added something, like Lucino and Jeslyn telling the same story, showing their different ulterior motives. At other times, the story was hopelessly awkward when there were very exposition-filled scenes that felt out of place.


Of the three POV characters Jeslyn is the least entertaining. She's incredibly naive and doesn't seem to learn anything. I hope she will grow more in the rest of the series. All in all, it had its moments and I hope to see more of them in the next book.


Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
