    Had never read anything by this author but i am so impressed by this book and her style of writing i am sure this will not be the only book of hers that i will read Rae and Ash, a brother and sister who are twins in a land which declares everything double needs to be killed or destroyed, however we meet them in their early years and they are hiding and terrified because the faceless monks have once again appeared in their village trying to root out twins Their father did not kill them at birth as is decreed and their mother hates them and in the northern side of the country women are dominant and man have no say but in the south it is the opposite A pedlar comes to the village and the mother sells him the twins and they travel with this man to the south Everything was going very well for them however one fine day the pedlar is killed, his shop burnt to the ground and the twins are left alone, penniless and scared because the monks were looking for them They hit rock bottom and end up with a group of criminals and thugs and then Rae is taken by the monks and Ash barely survives with his life He is nothing without his other half and Rae was always the most intelligent and the strongest however he is now fuelled by his rage and wants a vendetta on the ha...

    Good readI have mixed feelings about this book Really liked the twins but after Rae was taken the character flaws were just so hard to make him likeable on his own Selfish, egotistical, narcissistic and throws tantrum after tantrum...

    This was an excellent book I look forward to book 2 which seems to be coming out in about a month I think the reason that this book pulled me in is the the main character I really liked the twins and how they felt about each other which tied them together Each had a different view on life, but the brother alters his views because he cares for his sister Once they are separated you could se...

    This series is good A little grim but not that grimdark gibberish so good Surprised the sh te out of me.It s got good kids going through tough times and powering up It hits all my marks with a male hero and no romance so far into book 3 I ve seen some criticism of the central protagonist as being too whiny, self absorbed and non ethical Now normally I like my heroes humble, honourable, crafty and capable, BUT in this case I commend the author, Ash is consistent and really believable throughout Sure he s a bit dim but his one track mind is makes sense it grates me when a character conveniently forgets momentous developments but Ash s moodiness masks most plot holes and his motivations generally make sense A rare achievement and a real strength of the series, in fact the only false notes are the ultra modern technological terms littering the book undermining the diegesis Eyes like a laser , thermo...

    Saffron Bryant s Shadow of a Slave is the first instalment in the Blood Mage Chronicles Teen twins Ash and Rae should not exist They should have been killed at birth The fact that they ve avoided the Faceless Monks this long is a miracle, but their luck can t last.In a world where twins are feared for the magical powers they possess, the Faceless Monks scour the land to eradicate potential threats When they finally catch up with Ash and Rae, Rae is captured and Ash will stop at nothing to rescue his sister But he is in a race against time The Faceless are powerful Can he master the magic he needs in time to save Rae I enjoyed this story There are three books in the series though, and I m assuming one would need to read all three for the story to be f...

    I have mixed feelings about this book, I don t love YA which is just my personal preference so I did struggle with some of the teenage angst The pacing if this novel is unusual, though that isn t inherently bad it did feel like it took a while for the story to have weight behind it but it never felt boring or slow The author has a very sparse writing style for a fantasy author, which lends itself well t...

    Interesting magic system A have a few gripes though that stopped this book from becoming a 4 star book First the character continues to fall into the same action over and over, even though there are usually severe consequences for his actions, so he is never learning He and his sister can read each other s thoughts except when they lie to each other The faceless monks aren t ever explained, I guess the author wants you to re...

    4.5 Stars I really enjoyed the concept of this book and you are engaged early on in the lives of our twins Ash and Rae You quickly realize that they were not meant to live as it is against the law to own matching items, wheth...
