REVIEW

5.0 out of 5 stars A Supernatural story sprinkled with eccentric teenage romance, August 12, 2017

Author Calix Leigh-Reign weaves an intense tale in this compelling young adult fantasy. With its intriguing twists and turns it will easily captivate the reader’s attention from the beginning to the story’s dramatic conclusion. Albeit, a short lived one as this promises to be one of many.

Whatever flaws we might identify or frustrations we might feel are trivial in comparison to a reader’s pure joy in losing himself/herself in a narrative. When all the elements come together: an intriguing plot, thoughtful, profound themes, complex, troubling, characters, and language that make us shudder for its honesty, clarity, and confidence; we gratefully set all analysis aside and give ourselves up to the sheer magic of a great book. And for me, Opaque: Scion Saga Book 1 is such a book.

The story had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well illustrated scenes that will make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book.

The book description says it all, “Rumored to be joining the coveted MARVEL COMICS franchise, the Scion Saga is an exhilarating young adult series of adversity, bravery, and determination. The adventure primarily chronicles the lives of 16 year old Adam Caspian, Carly Wit, and their clan –all of whom are Descendants of seven ancient Russian Bloodlines.

Now, if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens next, you’ll just have to turn the pages yourself to find out!

This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flows from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional ability when it comes to storytelling. The writing style is such that I was drawn into the story from the very beginning and this doesn’t happen for me very often.

It’s one of those stories that come along once in a while that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader! A highly recommended read.

I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Calix Leigh-Reign in the future as this promises to have all the makings of an excellent series. Five stars from me.
