Summary: A princess, a traitor, a hunter and a thief. Four teenagers with the fate of the world in their hands. Four nations destined for conflict.
In Brigant, Princess Catherine prepares for a loveless political marriage arranged by her brutal and ambitious father. In Calidor, downtrodden servant March seeks revenge on the prince who betrayed his people. In Pitoria, feckless Edyon steals cheap baubles for cheaper thrills as he drifts from town to town. And in the barren northern territories, thirteen-year-old Tash is running for her life as she plays bait for the gruff demon hunter Gravell.
As alliances shift and shatter, and old certainties are overturned, our four heroes find their past lives transformed and their futures inextricably linked by the unpredictable tides of magic and war. Who will rise and who will fall? And who will claim the ultimate prize?
*I was sent a copy of this for review by the publisher. All opinions are my own*
This book was definitely not the best fantasy I have ever read, but I still really enjoyed it. I found myself getting more and more into it the further I read. There wasn’t really anything I didn’t enjoy about this book, but it didn’t blow me away either.
This book is told from 5 different perspectives and I never found myself getting confused about which perspective I was reading from, which was good. I really enjoyed reading from all the perspectives, but there wasn’t any one perspective that stood out from the rest for me.
I really enjoyed the world. I liked that we got to see bits of all the different kingdoms, and I thought the world had some really cool aspects to it, like the stuff with the demons and their smoke.
I was enjoying the plot of this book right from the start, then about halfway through I started to get way more into it. It started to get really interesting, and by the end I found myself really wanting the next book right away.
Overall I really enjoyed this book and I can’t wait for the next one.
I ended up with 2 ARCs of The Smoke Thieves, so I am going to give one away. I’m afraid this giveaway is UK only. If you are under 18, please make sure you have your parents permission to give me your address.
This is the copy I will be giving away.
