Reviews of The Turning by Sarah D. Silvey

Lille Sparven reviewed on May 28, 2019

The author undertakes challenging complexity when world-building and this aspect felt incomplete to me and made for a slow start … but a quarter of the way through, I was snagged and couldn’t put it down. I was left craving knowledge of the geography and of origins of key elements of the story, making it ripe for a sequel. The book is rich in themes like political polarization and how characters turn and face their inner demons and find the will to live -- or die. This is not a perfect book but it is an excellent beginning fantasy novel where both the author and the continued story show promise.

holy cats! this book is awesome. i read it straight through because it was so captivating. i LOVED it. i am not a big fan of fantasy & am a really picky reader. i often do not finish a book because it is just lacking in heart. this one has so much heart! & i hate reading off of a screen & avoid it--but this book wouldn't let me go. i would love to see this book in print because it really deserves its space in a library (public or private.)

Very well written. Each characters is a unique individual, who grew into a real person in the cinema of my mind.

A few times I anticipated the upcoming scenes correctly but most times I did not. An original a well thought out work. I will be looking for more works by the author.
