Review of The Curseborn Saga by Trowa D. Cloud

Hello book lovers! I hope all is well on your end of the line! Sorry that I haven't posted in awhile, been busy with exams! But what's really brightened my week was reading The Curseborn Saga by Trowa D. Cloud.

Synopsis:



The Curseborn Saga is about Eiendrahk, the never-ending war between the Goddess of Life and the God of Death. In written legend, every 100 cycles Death breaks free of the chains that cage him to his dark world, and he once again descends upon Life in an attempt to steal her element and enter the first sun of the Universe; a place that can only be entered when Life and Death are one. The Goddess of Life is protected by the Sorians, a race of Demi-Gods that live on floating islands within her world. However, because of a terrible curse, the realm of Soria has been divided and broken, and many believe it is only a matter of time before the Purebloods and the Curseborn go to war. Will the Sorians be destroyed by themselves, or find out the truth to their timeless curse, and with it, the truth to their very existence? 


For nearly 500 rings Caim and Storm have been training in the art of swordsmanship under their grandfather Ronin. Can they overcome the final challenge of their training and defeat the World of Inner Depths? Meanwhile on the floating country of Risia, Remi, Baelie and Maile, three adopted daughters of the Empress, are summoned to the Valyti by Lady Enies, the Vice Captain of the Force. The Valyti, home to the nine strongest women of Soria, is a dark and dangerous place, spoke of only in rumor and myth. Will the three sisters be brave enough to answer the summoning and make the journey to the mysterious Valyti? 


Review of The Curseborn Saga:

5/5


Wow! That's basically all I can say!
 
I went into The Curseborn Saga, knowing a minimal amount of information of the plot. And I ended up being thrusted into a beautiful and well thought out, adventurous, enthralling, story.
We follow two brothers, named Caim and Storm, who go on a epic fantasy journey battling the world of Inner Depths, and traveling to the first floating world of Falia.
We also follow three sisters, who's names are Remi, Baelie, and Maile. All three sisters encounter great obstacles and paths, to becoming guards for a group of very strong women, who call themselves The Valyti.

Trowa did a fantastic job with the point of view changes from Storm to Remi. It wasn't at all confusing, which I was really fond of because not many authors execute POV changes as well as Trowa did. Every character was extremely well developed and all of the characters felt relatable in some way. I also really enjoyed how invincible and strong all of the characters were, especially the obstacles that each one faces.

Fade to Black was completely engaging! Trowa has a talent for blending different concepts of anime into his storytelling, which makes it truly unique. His writing style is extremely dynamic, which made me completely involved. I loved the combination of art that was peppered throughout the entire novel. It really helps you get aquatinted with the world your immersed in, as well as visualizing the characters. Trowa's detail for description is mind blowing!! He completely surpasses Tolkien, when it comes to description and world building! 

The Curseborn Saga was such an amazing and fast paced read! And the Four Lords did a phenomenal job! I cannot wait to read the next installment!
