BRT   Review Title: A Fantasy with enough drama   to go around
BRT   Review: I   read the paperback version of this book. I was pleasantly surprised with the   depth and character driven plots that emerged among the magic. I appreciated   the clever way each character’s “abilities” were revealed and the   potentially realistic qualities given to them. Instead, they were introduced   more as powers acquired at birth or through life changes. Each character was   well-developed and it was as easy to hate the bad guys as it was to   understand their perspectives in some ways. I was a bit confused at some   points in the storyline during specific transitions, but quickly recovered. I   found it hard to wrap my mind around how some of the characters intricate   names would actually be pronounced, since when I read I like to visualize the   book as though it were a movie, which aides in my becoming more invested in   them. Perhaps the unique names add to the “Fantasy” aspect of the   book for some. Regardless, I enjoyed The Goddess’s Choice from the despicable   deeds of the biggest villain Argblutal, down to the romantic drama between   Princess Samantha and her suitors. The storyline is definitely a more vivid,   in-depth and adult version of “The Princess on The Glass Hill”, but   I assure you it is certainly worthy of a sequel on its own. Good review talk! But you be the judge.
