Marian Thorpe- Empire’s Heir
A Great Read
What a great fantastical story in Empire’s Heir by Marian Thorpe. This is the first of Thorpe's stories that I've read and I really enjoyed it. It has a lot of layers to the plot, and is very interesting take on fantasy and history, and how it all comes together. Thorpe is a wonderful writer, and brings the story to life. The base of the story is loyalty and family, and it brings in the fantastical and magical air of this world. The heir to Ésparias, Gwenna, is an intriguing character, and she wants to gain what is hers, but what she wants and what she feels forced to do is something that brings the reader in. The characters had a lot of depth, and were very realistic. It is a very well-written plot, and I enjoyed it. This author is a great storyteller. This story was very unpredictable. Empire’s Heir is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews. I read this book to give my unbiased and honest review.
