Sorcery of Thorns | A YA Book Review

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

Wow. First, I have to say that I started this book back in September and after 40 pages wasn't feeling it. I didn't really get the whole Malefict thing (couldn't imagine it) and it seemed wordy and superfluous. But something made me pick it up again in January and I suddenly couldn't put it down. Nathaniel Thorn really makes this book. He's like a cross between Nikolai Lanstov and the Darkling. Moreso, I feel like Margaret Rogerson did a really good job of making the reader feel empathy for characters you may otherwise have been suspicious of (trying not to spoil here). It takes a lot of talent for a writer to showcase how we all have light and dark inside us and are not all one or the other. This book is just great storytelling and I was sad to finish it (that last line though!). If, like me, you struggle in the beginning please push through because it's worth it. 4.5/5
