I wasn’t sure what to expect from CHASING POWER, especially after reading the summary. The female lead is a thief and the male lead blackmails her into helping him on a quest. Not exactly the sort of thing I usually jump into reading. Still, I chose it for review and gave it a shot. Turned out to be a very good decision.
Author: Sarah Beth Durst
From an initial, chilling fall into darkness, Sarah Beth Durst brings hope and magic to a horrific, almost apocalyptic landscape. Don’t pick up this book unless you have time to make it through at least the first half of Lauren’s journey, as her grief and circumstances will make it painful to leave her until she finds her footing.
There is always a challenge when it comes to characters who suffer from amnesia. It can feel like the reader is just as confused as they are. In CONJURED, Sarah Beth Durst handles this conundrum better than most by creating a hazy but still intriguing reality for her short-term memory challenged protagonist with surprising bursts of information well paced throughout the book. Oh and the literally magical kisses didn’t hurt.
