A blog where I review mostly books. I also review, if my appetite allows, movies, music, and video games. Enjoy the feast!

Wyvernhail by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes


Summary: Hai has always been an outsider. With a falcon mother and a deceased cobra father, she is considered a mongrel by most, an ally by some, and a friend by few. Hai's broken falcon wings are a painful reminder of the life she once led on the island of Ahnmik. And here in Wyvern's Court, the avian and serpiente royal family keep their distance, refusing to acknowledge her cobra bloodline. They know that Hai's magic is so volatile, she can barely control it, and images of the past and future threaten to overwhelm her.

When Hai's cousin, Oliza Shardae Cobriana, abdicates the throne of Wyvern's Court, Hai has visions only of destruction: the serpiente king Salem, dying in her arms; the dutiful guard, Nicias, unable to save a generation of children; and Wyvern's Court engulfed in flames.

Now Hai will do anything to protect her new home - even if it means betraying the very people who need her most.

Review: This book was horrible, yet beautiful. It was by far the darkest of the series. I still think Wolfcry is my favorite, but boy this one sure does come close. I'm really glad that Hai got her own book because her visions are interesting to read about. And all the internal struggles she had to deal with in this book were really sad. I loved all the twists in this book and I'm kind of sad that I've finished this series. I'm also happy that I've read yet another satisfying series by Amelia, and I look forward to read all of her other books.

5 howls for sure
