Severed Colours (A Colour Wielders Novel)

Severed Colours. A Colour Wielders Novel, Book Two. Dawna Raver
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I love fantasy, but its a very broad spectrum and whereas I love one end, son no 1 – also a fantasy lover – hates what I read in general, but loves fantasy at the opposite end, the Pratchett, Tolkien etc side 🙂 Anyway thinking I’d like this – I do love books with Fae, as it gives so much scope – I began to read.
Sadly though it just didn’t resonate for me, I found the action and the characters just too…I don’t really know how to put it..unreal maybe? That’s tough when you’re talking about fiction, but for me even fantasy characters have to feel real, and the plots credible. I just didn’t take to these characters, and the plot seemed just too long and drawn out. I felt Quinn was unfair to Arik even though she knew he’d done his best, and that irritated me. I didn’t really like any of the other characters, they all seemed users but that could be because I was really skim reading by then. I need to get lost in a book, to feel part of the action and here I felt like a detached observer 😦
If you like your fantasy the other side of the spectrum to me then you’ll probably love this, its beautifully written, very descriptive and full of action, just sadly not a story that grabs me. That’s a personal thing, not a reflection of the quality of the writing or story of course, and my review needs to be read as such. I didn’t find the sex scenes to be overly graphic so don’t be put off by the warning if this is the sort of novel you like. They fitted the story perfectly. Its a very good price at £1.88 for 361 pages.
Stars: two – again remember that’s a personal view, of my own enjoyment of the novel and not reflective of the book quality.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
