Witch King by Martha Wells - Book Review

Review by @elle.cheshire

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I put this off because I didn’t think I’d like it but It was completely different from what I was expecting! I ended up really enjoying it, it had an epic fantasy feel but without the pressure of a long book/ series. The characters were dynamic and I loved the format of having past and present chapters - the past chapters slowly gave context to the present and allowed a slow reveal of the layers behind Kai’s present situation. The past chapters were my favourite and I could have easily read a whole series about that plot but it was fun to have all the complexity of an epic fantasy in a shorter standalone book. The motley crew that developed in the present was a delight and I’d happily read more of their adventures. Definitely a surprising read but a worthwhile one.

And for those of you romance minded people… It doesn’t have any romance besides on screen couples who are already together.

A bit about me… I love all things morally grey and magical! 

My favourite series is Red Rising and I’m sucker for found family. 

I drink way too much tea and live out my fantasy dreams by visiting medieval festivals and doing archery! 

If I’m not reading you’ll find me writing my book or dreaming of far away places.
