Book Review: Tree Of Ages
What did I do in my previous life that lead to so many wonderful books ending in cliff hangers!?
Sara C. Roethle, author of Xoe: or Vampires and Werewolves and Demons, Oh My has done it again with Tree of Ages!
According to my Kobo stats it takes only 4.4 hours to read this book. I know I read it in less than 24 hours! It helped that it is one of those books that is difficult to put down.
The beginning starts a little slow but it quickly picks up and keeps your interest right to the very end.
Finn, the tree child, wakes to find herself human after spending a century as a tree. She’s wakened by Àed who takes her in, cares for her and helps her acclimate to her new state of being.
Finn eventually sets out to find someone who can turn her back into a tree, Àed ostensibly goes along to keep her company. It doesn’t take long for them to gain companions but who is to be trusted?
I thoroughly enjoyed this deviation from the Young Adult books I have been reading and reviewing.
There’s fantasy and more subtle magic. The magic doesn’t slap you in the face: it’s more of an innate magic, something that is a part of the person as a whole, than it is black magic vs white magic which is quite refreshing.
