The Silent Blade Blog Tour

*This is a scheduled blog post, I'm on vacation right now! :) So I won't be seeing or moderating comments until after I get back. 

My friend Jesseca is holding a blog tour for her book, The Silent Blade, which is coming out tomorrow!!! I'm doing a review on the book. Here we go! :D

Dromiskin, Ireland. 925 AD.

Eira has no greater desire than to see her life returned to what it once was - before her older brother Kevin's sudden disappearance four years earlier. But the simple life she hoped for seems unattainable; on the contrary, her life is about to get all the more complicated.
When she suddenly finds herself and Willem, her twin brother, taken captive by someone who claims to be Kevin's enemy, things go from bad to worse. It soon becomes clear that she and Willem are to become bait trap set for Kevin, and Eira knows she must try to warn him. But how, when she herself is a captive?
As mysteries of the past are unveiled, and loyalties are revealed, Eira realizes how precious her friends truly are. And when mortal danger threatens those nearest to her, will she be able to trust God with the lives of her friends and family?

Firstly, the characters were so loveable! I liked how Eira was a strong female character without being super-tough like in a lot of YA novels these days.

The ending was super satisfying. The part after the battle almost made me cry. So happy!! So sweet!!!

I found the beginning to be a bit confusing. There was one character and then there were three other characters and I was like, "Where is the first character???" it was explained early into the book, however.

Overall, I give this book 4.5 stars out of five! I absolutely LOVED it! :D

  4. What a lovely sounding book and fun review. I've actually said before, that it if I could go back in time and live in era before the mid-twentieth century, the days when the Celts and Norse (viking) cultures were flourishing would be some of my top picks, so stories that delve into such eras really appeal to me.

    Many hugs & thanks for your lovely blog comments,
    ♥ Jessica
