The High Queen is dying…
At the royal summons, Shae mounts a wingabeast and soars through the air to the high hold of Faeraven, where all is not as it seems. Visions warn her of danger, and a dark soul touches hers in the night. When she encounters an attractive but disturbing musician, her wayward heart awakens.
But then there is Kai, a guardian of Faeraven and of Shae. Secrets bind him to her, and her safety lies at the center of every decision he makes.
On a desperate journey fraught with peril and the unknown, they battle warlike garns, waevens, ferocious raptors, and the wraiths of their own regrets. Yet, they must endure the campaign long enough to release the DawnKing and the salvation he offers into a divided land. To prevail, each must learn that sometimes victory comes only through surrender.
About the Author
Janalyn Voigt is a writer and professional speaker with a photography habit and a passion for travel. Her unique blend of adventure, romance, suspense, and fantasy creates worlds of beauty and danger for readers. Tales of Faeraven, her epic fantasy series beginning with DawnSinger, carries readers into a land only imagined in dreams. She is represented by Sarah Joy Freese of Wordserve Literary.
Janalyn Voight has created a believable alternate universe, complete with unfamiliar names and terms. The book includes an 8-page glossary of those terms and names. Personally I thought it was a little excessive and a bit of a nuisance to have to keep turning to the back to discover the meaning of unfamiliar words, some of which the meaning could not be determined from context.
However, I did enjoy the plot and anticipate enjoying the following books in the Tales of Faeraven series. I also enjoyed seeing parallels, whether intentional or accidental, between biblical stories and the plot of DawnSinger, as well as the ultimate triumph of good over evil. The plot shows the draw of evil and the difficulty even the good have of resisting its pull. Voight did an excellent job of creating an alternate universe and having things remain consistent within that world. The book does have a bit of a surprise ending and I look forward to seeing how that surprise plays out in future titles in the Tales of Faeraven series.
I will probably be adding DawnSinger and the other books in the Tales of Faeraven series to my K-12 Christian School library.
I want to thank Harbourlight Publishers and Prism Book Tours for the complimentary copy of DawnSinger. This is my honest review.
