#BookReview: Chains Carried on Wings (Clydian Chronicles, #1) by @marina_erving

Synopsis: Saig had always lived on the edge of acceptance. Unlike a proper daughter of the head family, she longed for the freedom of the open woods over the confinement of her home. It was enough to drive away the two people who should, by rights, have been her closest companions. 

But her perfect, responsible cousin Auris--destined to be the city's headwoman and resentful of Saig's inability to conform--would never be her friend again. 

And her surly cousin Trei--aware of how his foreign ancestry undermined his own standing in society--would always look at her as a reminder of their shared differences. 

Until a series of mysterious disappearances forces all three of the cousins onto the same side. Driven to protect their city and prove themselves, they join the effort to hunt down the perpetrators. What they find is a trap designed to bring their society crashing down, and the power to reshape their city's future. There's just one problem--the three of them have always bitterly disagreed on what that future should look like.

My Review: This one won me over from the first pages.  My only issue was that the book at times was confusing because the world building was fairly inconsistent.  For the most part I could still figure out what was going on etc.  So it only effected the story a little.  The characters were fully formed and so amazing and I can not wait to read the next book in the series.  And lord do I need this in print!! I mean look at that cover! 


"Possessing unique attributes and engaging internal conflicts, characters are the strength of this dynamic and imaginative fantasy. As they root out the plots against their city, and struggle to work together, their differences become starkly apparent. Ermakova enriches the story with moments of moving introspection and the evolution of complex relationships." - The BookLife Prize

From the Author

Chains Carried on Wings came from the desire to write about characters who don't quite fit into their world, while also creating cultures whose ideas of normal don't follow the fantasy standard. And of course, as someone who read plenty of epic fantasy during her teenage years, I wanted to write something that bridged the gap between YA and epic fantasy.
