Review: Kyoko M.’s Of Cinder & Bone

My apologies for the late review, but life has kept me busy these past few months.

I won a copy of the novel via the author’s GoodReads giveaway

Review:

The novel’s a great read, it has everything a reader can ask for in a sci-fi/fantasy book.

I applaud the author’s characters who are not only well-developed characters but are diverse and inclusive. It was great to see that one of the main characters is a WOC AND she’s not the only WOC present. Back ground characters are also not one dimensional and also given something to do which is a plus.

The thing that appealed to me the most was how much research the author did in their approach to bringing a dragon to life. The method used in the story has a realistic feel which piqued my curiosity.  Of Cinder & Bone also brought a sense of awe and wonderment, almost like the first time I watched Jurassic Park on the big screen.

The story features action, tension, drama, and comedy and goes at a decent pace. But I expect that from this author. It’s risky to end a novel with a cliffhanger, but the move pays off because I want to know what happens next.  Plus, it makes the book stand out in a good way.

Overall, Of Cinder & Bone is an excellent story. I look forward to the sequel.

5/5
