Forced out on the road with the boy left in his care, Jovan determines to journey into the cave of the bear—to seek out those that would do him and his boy harm.
It is the boy and his bottomless well of soul-searing magic that they seek.
They would do anything to exploit it.
And Jovan would do anything to stop them.
Thrice is the first book in the Needle and Leaf series.
Thrice is a nice quick read that is exciting and entertaining. It has a very interesting story with a magic system that is well explained and thought out. There are many characters that readers will begin to love and enjoy the journey that they are forced to undertake. I found that this was a great breath of fresh air, thrilling, exciting, and intriguing.
The strength of this novel was the characters. There are a variety of them that are very easy to relate to. Jovan and Leaf became instant favorites of mine, the opposites attract type of relationship between mentor and child. The only issue with the characters was me trying to remember the age of Leaf, with the actions that he does, even though the author does an awesome job of making sure that the readers are reminded often. The biggest thing I wanted more of is the world, knowing the magic throughout the rest. This is something that I am sure we will see in the future installations.
Thrice is one that is suitable for all types of readers. It has adventure, revenge, crime syndicates, and a mystery that will keep readers guessing up to the end. I did the audio and the author does a fantastic job of this as well! This is an exciting new series with a ton of potential and promise!!
Thanks for taking the time to read my review. As always, happy reading and Stay Great!!
