The gods has already chosen princess Amara, which awakens Katja who supposed to be the chosen one. But however, no one dictates to gods in the underworld.
The book teaches you to be awaken to your calling. Nice review.

This fantasy novel set in a magical land sounds like a nice read. I like it that the characters are portrayed in a magical, yet relatable, fashion. However, I'm not a fan of this genre, and I'll pass on this one. Otherwise, congrats on the BOTD.

Hmm sounds like a familiar tale that has recently become a huge sensation among younger audiences. The moral of the story is beautiful: Love conquers all in the face of all negative adversity. I'm sure this will become a popular read during many bedtime stories. Thank you for the insightful and well-written review! Happy reading :techie-studyinggray:

An interesting fantasy book that is a blend of Disney and other fantasy producers. This book would be ideal for young teens and other children that can remember character names and backgrounds. Young children may struggle with some of the character names. The officlal review was good and having read the free sample I can agree with the rating.

I can't help but be reminded of Frozen while reading this review. There are a lot of parallels. In Frozen, Elsa is the Ice Queen and Anna is the sister who has lost her memory. In this story, we have Amara and Katja, respectively.
There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul!

This sounds very captivating. I wonder what happened to Katja and whether she will be of help to her sister Amara. Consequently, I am adding the book to my shelf. Thanks for the review.

Your review captures the theme of the book very well. I read only a sample, which intrigued me, but your review has me wanting to read the entire book without putting it down!
