Multi-volume, multi-genre author, Leslie D. Soule introduces us to the third volume in The Fallenwood Chronicles, Betrayer:
With five crystals to destroy, in order to rob the dark lord Malegaunt of his power, Ash Kensington's path is set. She begins a quest with the talking cat, Greymalkin, and her wyvern, Slick. But when she meets up with the handsome dragon slayer, Draeon, her senses overwhelm her, and she becomes distracted. Will she be able to destroy the crystals in time to challenge Malegaunt?
This is a fascinating book on two levels. There is more than one story here, if you read the preface, you will see the second story by reading between the lines of prose.
I like the main character, Ashley, quite a bit. She comes across as a wounded person, like all of us are to one degree or another, trying to cope with the life she is in. Except, she has two lives, unlike most of us who live in one world rather than two.
Written in First Person POV, which I love, this story has a widely varying pace, just like real life. The scene-setting is good, the dialogue is nicely done also. The characters are nicely fleshed out, their personalities come through quite well.
I award 4.9 stars to “Betrayer”! The score would have been higher except for a few spelling errors I found.
