More than a coming of age story, it felt like a coming into one's own story. And yes, it has the requisite love triangle, of course, because she’s a teenager discovering herself as a woman. Siri finds herself coming into some abilities (coming into her power as a woman?) which get progressively stronger. She ends up on a quest and must make choices and decisions along the way. On one level, her choice could simply determine the next turn in the quest to save those she’s trying to save. However, on another level, her choice is all about her. Does she choose to honor and support her own strength and power, and independence, or does she give her power away?
The action is amazing, as is the folklore background. Logan's descriptive wordplay is impressive, painting the scene for us like a canvas. There were literally spots I wanted to stop and enter the book, they sounded so lovely.
I am excited by this new series and eagerly look forward to the next book.
I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
The rest of the book then goes on to the usual teenage stuff like Siri’s daily at Union High, her rivalry with a Rowan-admirer, and her meeting Rowan’s parents at Rowan’s remarkable home. In between all this are mentions of Siri’s visions of faraway places where natural and man-made disasters are destroying them. This book has a feel of Stephenie Meyers’ Twilight series but this time with faes, druids, and talking animals instead of vampires and werewolves. It is a Young Adult tale with Norse and Celtic mythology elements in it which I find very fresh and interesting due to my knowledge of Valhalla, the Valkyrie, Thor, Odin, Freyr, and fairy legend characters like Morgaine Le Fay. I can assure you that if you are a fan of Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and the aforementioned mythologies, you will adore Siri, Rowan, and a hunky character by the name of Alec Ward who Siri two-times with (this was the only disappointing element of this story, the fact that Siri romances with Alec behind Rowan’s back, I thought it made her distasteful and flawed).
But anyway, nobody’s perfect right? Not in real life and definitely not a work of fantasy as that is the genre this book falls under. The names of the characters are Scandinavian and Irish and I had a funny feeling of Mariah Carey in it because one character was called Mireia and Rowan’s last name was Carey so my Mariah Carey fandom was tickled by this. This book also summons my knowledge of such masterpieces like Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream comedy and the more recent Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games. One alluring factor to note is the mentions of essential oils and herbs like sandalwood and coriander to name a few. If you’re looking for something magical and captivating then I simply suggest getting this one. As of the moment, it is FREE in Kindle form at Amazon online. Hurry before this offer ends to start a new series since this is the first part of a multi-part series called Inner Origins. Enjoy it for yourself and Happy Magical 2017!
