Book Review: Runemaker

The end is here.

Tenn thought the spirits wanted him to find his fellow Hunter, Aidan, to win the war against the undead. But with Aidan on the brink of self-destruction and Tenn reeling from his lover’s spite, their fated convergence seems far from promising.

Especially because Aidan no longer appears to be fighting for the living.

With the Dark Lady whispering commands and Tom‡s guiding his hand, Aidan slips deeper into darkness. And while the world rallies for its final battle against the Dark Lady’s minions, Tenn finds himself torn between saving the boy who’s slipping away and fulfilling a prophecy he can’t understand—one that will require him to harness the most powerful magic the world has ever seen: the Sphere of Maya.

And depending on who unleashes its power, that magic could either save humanity…or erase it.

I received a free digital copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

This book was good, but it wasn’t a book that could really hold my attention. I found myself getting distracted easily and it took me wayyyy longer than usual to finish. The writing style seemed kind of slow.. I almost would figure out what would happen prior to it actually happening in the story. 

I love the idea of this story. It has a great story line, but I do not think it was executed as well as it could have been. I get frustrated with the “chosen one” kind of books. So the fact that this one was more “deciding to take action” really had me hopeful. 

I think I might have just been too old to enjoy this book. It definitely was not targeted towards people my age as it is a YA novel. All things considered it was a good book and I enjoyed it. 

Thank you kindly to the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for this advanced copy.
