Honestly, I fell in love with this book. It’s well written, packed with action and trust me, there is never a dull moment. Timandra Whitecastle’s writing style is exquisite, vocabulary-rich, cliché-free; vivid and realistic descriptions are the author’s strong point.
The storyline is captivating, one unpredicted twist after another, it keeps you wondering what’s next. In a book with so main characters out of the box, a bold female lead outstands. Nora is a strong fearless girl (in an Arya Stark way of awesomeness) while Owen is a boy who’s not that much into weapons as he is into books.
When I started reading ‘Touch of Iron’ I couldn’t predict the turn the storyline would take. I didn’t expect the characters to evolve and change so dramatically after finding themselves bogged down in an ominous and menacing situation. What started as a Young Adult fantasy story ended a dark, epic and edgy story, with unexpected twists and unpredictable premise, written masterfully, flawlessly.
Very impressive for a first-time author and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
