Today is my stop for the @sot_tours tour for The Wrack!
‘Plague has come to the continent of Teringia.
As the Wrack makes its slow, relentless march southwards, it will humble kings and healers, seers and merchants, priests and warriors. Behind, it leaves only screams and suffering, and before it, spreads only fear.
Lothain, the birthplace of the Wrack, desperately tries to hold itself together as the plague burns across it and its neighbors circle like vultures. The Moonsworn healers would fight the Wrack, but must navigate distrust and violence from the peoples of Teringia. Proud Galicanta readies itself for war, as the Sunsworn Empire watches and waits for the Wrack to bring its rival low.
And the Wrack advances, utterly unconcerned with the plans of men.’
Overall, I enjoyed this book. The writing style is a nice, easy one to follow along and the concepts that were explored were really interesting.
However, I wanted to know more about the magic in this world and would have also liked to follow just a couple of characters rather than the amount that were introduced. However, in this book you are following ‘the plague’ and not necessarily the characters so this choice of storytelling makes sense.
The concept of being able to insert a gemstone eye that let’s you see into the spirit realm was really fascinating to me and I’ve not seen that on any of the other books that I read.
I will definitely be picking up other books from this author!
