About the Book
Layla Cassidy has always wanted a normal life, and the chance to put her father’s brutal legacy behind her. And in her final year of university she’s finally found it. Or so she thinks.
But when Layla accidentally activates an ancient scroll, she is bestowed with an incredible, inhuman power. She plunges into a dangerous new world, full of mythical creatures and menace—all while a group of fanatics will stop at nothing to turn her abilities to their cause.
To protect those she loves most, Layla must take control of her new powers…before they destroy her. All is not yet lost—there is a light shining, but Layla must survive long enough to see it.
With thanks to the author for the copy received.
Every now and again I love a bit of escapism in a novel and A Glimmer of Hope ticked all the boxes.
Humans are in the minority in this novel. Instead it consists of a variety of monsters from a world that we have all heard about in our childhood. One of the few humans in the novel describes it as dungeons and dragons and I can’t think of a more apt description.
There are many characters, the kindle’s search facility did come in handy at first. Some are good, many not so good. All are willing to use violence, cause mayhem and face possible death for their cause. These characters are more likely to survive injury than humans but there are still ways to kill them. There are quite a few of them I am looking forward to knowing more about.
This book is the first in a series but there is no real cliff hanger ending like in other fantasy books I have read. I am looking forward to the next book though because I enjoyed this book a lot.
