Between the corruption permeating the air, the goddess threatening to control her bond with Malek and Bane, and the knowledge assassins were hunting her, this entire situation had the potential to go wrong very quickly.
Facets of Power Summary
The hardest stone protects the most precious gems…
Someone is killing dwarves.
Sabine is new to the city of Razadon, a mecca of stone and dwarven magic.
When a clan leader is murdered in a strange ritual, suspicion falls on the most likely culprits and those newest to the city—Sabine and her companions.
The blood of the ancients can fracture even the strongest stone…
The seals of the Dragon Portal are growing weaker, and Sabine’s running out of time to acquire the remaining artifacts before their world is engulfed in flames.
It’s a race against the clock to find out who’s responsible for the murders and save her friend’s life. But deep within the heart of the mountain, there are some who will do anything to keep Sabine from learning the truth.
Even if it means sacrificing her in the process.
Facets of Power Review
Facets of Power (and this entire series in my honest opinion) deserves to be savoured, but I tore through two books in the series in one day (as usual with my favourite reads).
Like the books before, the plot is fantastic and fast-paced, but not overpacked or exhausting. The pace of the novel leaves your heart pounding and yourself energized, like the pages are their own type of magic. Every time you think there will be a chance to catch your breath from an event that just happened, something else or someone comes and throws you for another ride trying to piece together the mystery in this series. I’ve not been able to guess at a single twist in Sabine’s story. The story is continuing to build around Sabine’s quest to claim her rightful place among the Fae, as well as Malek’s quests for the Dragon Portal artifacts. The flow from one book to another is seamless. Like the previous two novels, the balance between action, intrigue, secrets and tension is gripping and won’t allow an escape until the end.
We get to meet some new characters and learn a little more about Sabine and her newfound family. I like that the main characters are continuing to grow, change and adapt; but are still true to themselves, even when they are trying to find who they are and where they belong. I love the new settings that allow for more characters, cultures, and world building. I hope we get to see more of Sabine’s struggle to find her balance as she claims her place in Faerie and I also hope there is a way to sort out her long term struggle with her relationship. in terms of what it means for her crown.
The world is rich and inviting, the characters are complicated and engaging, and the plot is fast and engrossing. I cannot wait for the fourth book and to see how many more obstacles will come into Sabine and Malek’s paths.
I would like to thank Jamie A. Waters for sending me a free copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
