Wednesday's Favorites: Lichgates

Welcome to the Wednesday's Favorites post. In the Wednesday's Favorites post I will talk about a book I loved and that I think deserves a little more attention. I read popular books, but also many books that aren’t so popular (yet). In this post all sorts of books from all sorts of genre’s will have a chance to shine. Today’s Wednesday's Favorite is 'Lichgates' by S.M. Boyce, a book I read in December 2014.

The Book: The final page will leave you breathless.

When Kara Magari uncovers a secret door in the middle of the forest, she discovers (and trips through) a portal to a hidden world full of terrifying things: Ourea. She just wants to go home, but the natives have other plans for her. She clashes with immortal shapeshifters, is carried off by a dragon, nearly dies on several occasions, and somehow becomes the master of an ancient book of magic called the Grimoire. Every time she thinks she's safe, her new "friends" show their true colors.

Kara needs an ally, or she might not survive Ourea's monsters. She drops her guard when Braeden, a native soldier with a dark secret, vows to keep her safe. And though she doesn't know it, her growing attraction to him may just be her undoing.

For twelve years, Braeden Drakonin has lived a lie. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. Though he begins to care for this stranded girl, there's something he wants more. He wants the Grimoire.

Welcome to Ourea, where only the cunning survive.

Praise for 'Lichgates':

Overall, anyone looking for a light, YA-centric fantasy read that also carries substance in world building will enjoy reading this book.

‘Lichgates’ is an extremely fast paced novel that will trap the reader’s attention from the very first chapter and hold it throughout the entire story.  The book’s ending is especially exciting, and left me wanting to read the rest of the Grimoire Saga as soon as possible.

Once I started reading this book I didn’t want to stop. I was totally blown away by everything and I can’t wait to read the next book and continue the story. I was really happy (and relieved) that there wasn’t a cliffhanger though (whew!).

‘Lichgates’ is definitely going on my favorite list. I loved every part of this book and I definitely didn't want it to end. I can’t wait to read more books in this series. I just really couldn't get enough of Ourea, Kara and Braeden.
