Review: Land of Strength and Sorrow

Land of Strength and Sorrow by Cassandra Fear
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blurb from Goodreads:
One cure can save them all...

Princess Jovi's sheltered life has taught her nothing about Orendor, the kingdom she will one day rule. Longing for adventure isn't the same as being thrust in the middle of one, which is exactly what happens when the Frost Mages attack the castle in Kingsperch.

Determined to save her kingdom, Jovi must gather an army of brave warriors to defeat the Frost Mages and protect the people she loves. She seeks help from the bravest Mammoth Rider in all of Orendor—her fearless uncle, Meical.

Jovi will endure harrowing trials she never imagined she’d face, but as a daring new enemy emerges from the darkness, Jovi will discover a startling truth about herself that might open the door to a brand new future.

Will she choose the lives of many, or the heart of one?


This was one of the fantasy books which was in my list. So Finally I had time this week and had it out for reading. I loved how the book began where the in the past and then it straight gets into the present. I liked the creativity of the fantasy world, like the fairies, giants and all. Its not easy to create a magic world for sure.

Apart from being a fantasy world, there was a lot of plot twist and storyline here. There are a lot of love hate moments inside the story as you'd love certain parts of lead and hate some. It keeps interest going on through out the book till the end. As for me it was quite predictable as I had guessed most of things in first few chaps. I won't lie but still I enjoyed reading it till the end.

Things I didn't like much were the end of the story and magical details about the creatures being spoken off. It felt like if there could've been more it'd be a lot more fun. The end of the story was a kind off cliff hanger. It felt like 50% cliff hanger and 50% The end. It was weird but unique.

For all the fantasy fun, magical adventure journey I'd surely recommend it.
