To kick off this book review, here’s a short disclaimer: I received a digital Advanced Reader’s Copy (ARC) of Fire Lines as part of my participation in a blog tour hosted by A Daydreamer’s Thoughts. This, however, neither affects my opinion nor the content of my review in any way.

For seventeen years, Émi, as well as the entire citizenry of Nhatu, was taught that the high walls isolating their city from the rest of the world were built to protect them against the armies of Mahg, a power-hungry wielder of black magick. Beyond the walls lay barren wastelands and unsightly ruins of the three other cities, which were completely destroyed by Mahg’s wrath.

Supposedly.

Review || Keep the Faith (+ GIVEAWAY)

First things first: I received a digital copy of this book as part of my participation in a blog tour – this, however, affects neither my opinion nor the content of my review in any way. Many, many thanks to the author for this opportunity!

Keep the Faith is a relatively short novel that tackles, well, faith (and Faith, for that matter) – during devastating times, amidst large-scale tragedies, in the middle of heartbreak, and even in the people who don’t deserve it. The story immediately jumps into the messy aftermath of Faith’s breakup with her five-year boyfriend James. From there, we are whisked into her journey towards healing and moving forward. Make no mistake, however, Keep the Faith is more than what meets the eye.
