Alisiyad is unlike any story I'd ever read before. It was an absolute delight to get to know this novel and its author.
This book shows mystery, fantasy, romance, angst and what not. The prose and writing style is a sign of the author's merit and passion.
The growth of the main characters- Liseli and Russell- was so life-like...They made their own mistakes, neither of them was perfect...but their story grew on me.
If you are thinking romance is the only main theme, you are wrong. The world-building and the magical elements will blow your mind.
This book is a perfect example of "Show, not tell." The author never dumps too much info after you've reached the climax. She leaves just enough breadcrumbs to leave you hungry for more.
I read this novel on the author's website, and those seeking a book that creates a perfect reading experience should at least take a peek at Alisiyad; I don't know about you, but I wouldn't miss this for the world.
Enough said. This novel deserves five stars through and through.
The only drawback would be-the readers don't get to know whether everything goes okay with Liseli and Russell, but that's life. "Happily ever after; the END" doesn't happen in reality. And there comes the sequel: "Queen of Seven", which is ongoing.
So, what are you waiting for? Go read Alisiyad right now and find yourself immersed in a world filled with magic, gates, rivers and a story worthy of every reader's dream.
