Etania's Worth by M.H. Elrich
I don’t read Biblical fantasy or really any Biblical-based books, so this was new for me. M.H. Elrich and I did a book review trade and I always welcome the opportunity to read something new.
For starters, there are many characters, races, and places in this book. It got hard for me to keep up with. Then I got to the end of the ebook and realized there was a glossary all along. If I had read the book in print, I would have seen it earlier and wouldn’t have had a problem. So I recommend reading this book in print. The glossary is well-organized and helpful, and I wish I could have utilized it.
Many of the descriptions are well-done as is the climax. The climax is the strongest point of the book as you really feel all the events of the story connecting and reaching a peak. Etania does not drive the story as much as other characters do, but she still has some likable traits. I liked Keyel but my favorite character was Tala. I found her to have a strong personality and I was surprised by what happened to her.
I can say in all honesty that one of my favorite parts is how we end up being wrong about the ultimate villain. That was very well-done and I didn’t see it coming.
I received a free ebook in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
As a side note, I will hopefully be introducing my author interview series soon, beginning with M.H. Elrich! So look out for that!
