Grab a comfort seat, my time travel fantasy novel review of Winters Rising follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
First let me say, Shannyn Leah, crafted an original world filled with intriguing characters and situations. The structure of her world was easy to follow and visualize. Beginning with a mystery man creeping outside a Victorian house, Leah, hooks the reader immediately, as she begins weaving her plot lines and fast forwards.
Secondly, Leah skillfully portrayed the disparage in the classes of her world. As in the real world, one class always feels they are superior to another. The same occurs in Leah’s world. The Gatekeepers seen as and believe they are above the Seconds.
Furthermore, her character development was continuous throughout the novel. As a result, the reader watches Brea grow from an angry defiant girl to a mature woman. Brea’s character is also strong and independent, never showing fear of Jax. She is willingly to stand up for what she believes, darn the consequences.
Jax’s character is a great hero. He feels with his heart and soul. After a few false starts, Jax finally discovers how to handle his new wife. He falls fast and hard for Brea, while she fights it every step of the way.
The villain of the novel was a shock, as Leah gives the reader several worthy characters to choose from. Needless to say, my choice was wrong. I found the pace smooth and fast as Leah leads the reader to the finish line. The secondary characters added depth to the story and left openings for additional books in the series.
Finally, in concluding my reviews for time travel fantasy novel, Winters Rising, I found a solid story, clean and well-written. I look forward to the next book in this series as Leah expands her world.
