Book review & The Book of the month; The Branches of Time by Luca Rossi

The English cover of the book

I am so honored and excited to be writing this review. The author followed me a couple of days back and I told him I have a bookish blog that I write reviews on. He asked me if I wanted to do a review on his book and I of course said yes. So, he sent me the book via email and here I am writing this review today.

The synopsis of the book is this; 
The population of the island of Turios is mercilessly exterminated by the workings of black magic. Only Bashinoir, badly wounded, his wife Lil, and the Priestess Miril have survived. Determined to give their loved ones a worthy burial, the three soon discover that the corpses have disappeared. A shadow spreads over their hearts, dividing and destroying them, as their bodies appear to be fading away. Feeling increasingly isolated, Bashinoir watches as the two women grow closer.. In the Kingdom of Isk, wizards and wisemen alike must bow down before the insatiable King Beanor, whose greed of power and war is matched only by his hunger for sez. A young woman he has chosen as his next bride does not, however, wish to surrender her freedom to love and live. Will games and tricks under the sheets turn the tide in a war that has lasted thousands of years?

First off, I was very skeptical about reading a fantasy book because I've not liked reading fantasy books for a long while. However, this book proved me wrong, as this was simply amazing. This has very beautiful character names and a nice thrilling start to the story, just what a book needs to hook a reader and make them read more. The book also has very well described scenery and other things such as the characters. I got the winter vibes from this book because of the scenery, which felt great, so I'd say that this book is a perfect book to read in winter. The story line is very-well structured, I liked it that it held together for the whole book as with some books it falls apart at some point. Overall, I loved this book, even when it had sexual preferences and scenes, but there wasn't that many that it would've bothered me although I'm not used to reading them. Overall, this book was shocking, thrilling and amazing! It made my heart beat faster because of the thrilling story line at some points. This is why I'm making this book my The Book of the Month of November.


Stars: 5/5
Comments: Shocking, thrilling and simply amazing. Everyone should read this, I mean everyone!
