This is the first of two reviews today, as it is my stop on the blog tour for the second book in this series – and so I wanted to share this review of book one first. Where Shadows Lie is the first book in The Last Gift series, and a book that had been on my TBR for a while, and which time did not allow me to do justice to before it’s tour so I am hopefully making up for that now
Disclaimer – I received a copy in exchange for an honest review, all thoughts are my own.
The Chosen One is Dead.
Disabled since childhood, his little sister never expected the weight of a crown. Now, she might lose it before ever sitting on the throne. Beset by rebels, scheming politicians, and cutthroat bankers, Elenor must choose between accepting her father’s despotic rule or risking everything for her late brother’s lofty ideals.
Meanwhile, from the rainy streets of Lirin to the scorching dunes of the Mondaer Desert, the ripples of her actions have inadvertently broken a chain of events five centuries in the making. Ancient forces move in the shadows, calling in debts and striking deals. A monster with a thousand faces fingers his knife, ready to kill, and a pair of fugitives run for their lives, unaware of the danger they carry with them.
Where Shadows Lie is a non-stop epic fantasy ride, featuring an lgbtq+ and disabled protagonist and filled with court intrigue, sizzling romance, and adorable baby dragons. Dive in and get swept away!Continue reading “Book Review: Where Shadows Lie (The Last Gift #1) – Allegra Pescatore”
