Book Review: Trial by Fire: Josephine Angelini

Dear reader I just finished reading “Trial by Fire” book number one in the “Worldwalker” series by Josephine Angelini. I picked up a hardcover copy of the book from (I paid for it myself) because it seemed interesting. My personal review of the book is as follows:

The concept of this book and some of magical mechanics share similarities with the “Firebird” trilogy by Claudia Gray in my personal opinion; If you liked that trilogy then you will probably like this book as well. I did like the twist on being a witch and doing magic. It did bugged me a bit in regards to how both versions of “Lilly” could be in the same word at the same time.

Around the middle to last half of the book I personally stopped caring about the characters but learning more about the world and the mechanics of how the magic works really interested me. I wish that the book could have different characters. The last half of the book felt a little bit rushed and twisted plot wise (with all the different things going on). Overall I personally rate this book a 4 out 10 based on how much I liked the world. Happy reading dear reader ?.  Please like and share this review if you like it doing so helps me to get considered by publishers and authors for future books and helps others to find my reviews ♡.
