#BookReview: Spell Borne by Auden Llyr

Synopsis: Some curses start with “Once upon a time...”

I thought this semester would be easy - just my thesis and attending some seminars in Lointaine. And who doesn’t love spending time in an enchanting, small town?

But it turns out Lointaine is straight out of a fairy tale, quite literally, and the spell affecting the town is determined to turn me into a princess. You know, the kind that gets chased by murderous huntsmen, assaulted in their sleep, or cleans up after stepsisters… Not my idea of a great time.

However, according to the resident expert, it’s dangerous to try to avoid my fairy tale. I can’t take that risk since I’m already in a bit of trouble with the police.

I’m not sure I have it in me to fight my professors, the police, and magic spells, but if I don’t I’ll be letting go of my own dreams for my future. Is there any path through this grim tale that leads to a happily ever after?


Rating: 1 Star
My Review: This is another one of those stories that I just couldnt connect with it.  I felt that it fell really flat and it was just kind of all over the place.  I ended up DNFing this one around 40%. 

Auden Llyr is the author of Spell Borne. She grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains, steeped in the magic of nature and a steady stream of fairy tales. After obtaining her master’s degree, Auden spent several years as a technical writer before realizing her true vocation lay in writing fiction. She now lives in North Carolina, raising two boys (or perhaps small dragons, as they seem to have similar destructive capabilities) along with her husband.
