It was everything anyone could possibly want in a fantasy including a girl heroine! It isn't even out yet but I can't wait for Book Two...the author is a total sweetie pie...a teacher...one of those teachers that everyone loves...and wants to emulate. I know his students adore him...I would love to be in class with him.
So...this year I wanted to start out with another amazing fantasy and I had this to read from Amazon Vine.
It started off...for me...kind of tentatively...it takes me a bit to get used to the names...the Artauchy of Aygrima is the place. There are black masked Watchers, weird foods...Mara, the major character, loves mashed redroots. Mara is tested every few years to see if she can see magic. When she is 15 she has a masking ceremony. Her father is the chief Mask Maker and is secretively making her mask. Mara is told that wearing a mask does not change a person...but...this may not be true.
Anyway...on her big masking day...after a day of manis, pedis, and pampering...the masking goes horribly wrong. When this happens the rejects get tossed into a nightmarish prison...that's where I am now and I could barely put my real book down to write this! I am about to find out if Mara escapes...if she has magic...and much more! I love this book...
I am looking forward to a day of fantasy! I might just make a fantastic dinner...or not...lol!
Have a wonderful day!

Is this a form of kitty peek a boo?
