Time’s Orphan by Hayley Reese Chow
Speak of pain, and I’ll tell you of the Time who stole it away…
Besieged by war, ravaged by monsters, and crawling with the undead, the land of Okarria is dying. Seventeen-year-old Emara survives by using her modest healing gift to save as many as she can while eluding the invaders who thirst for her enchanted blood.
So when a cursed cat saves her life and reveals Emara is the legendary Time Heir the necromancer king’s been searching for, she agrees to act as bait in a plot to destroy him. But when the plan goes horrifically awry, Emara must discover how deep her powers go, what she can change…
And what she cannot.
This book is so good and so hard to put down! When I started, my kindle told me I had 3 hours to finish it. Then about an hour and a half later I was at 15 minutes to the ending and I couldn’t believe it!
Time’s Heir is an action packed, lore-filled read that you can read as a stand-alone or as part of the series (I read it as a stand-alone but now I plan on reading the rest of the series)
The characters are well written, memorable and entertaining- and the MC is a good one. Flawed, kind, quick thinking and quite tough when it comes down to it.
The descriptions of locations, moods, wounds and people were all really good, and it was easy to imagine what the MC was seeing in my minds eye.
I definitely recommend reading this if you’ve read the series, and even reading it if you haven’t!
I received an advanced copy of this book from the Author Hayley Reese Chow (thank you for sharing your work!) and all opinions are my own.
