The book for review is “Refugees: Mud, Rocks, and Trees Book 1” by R.A. Denny. This book falls in the genre of fantasy.
Meet our main characters: Amanki of the Mud people, Moshoi of the Rock people and Brina of the Tree people. They live among humans but keep to themselves when needed.
They all have destinies, similar one, which is to look out for a bright star. Upon finding it they are to embark on their journey to a city they never been before or even heard off. Their teacher and guide, Baskrod , has been preparing them. He visits them each yearly to check on their progress and to continue their teachings. But nothing every goes according to plan when the tribe of cat riders attack the tree dwellers killing a glider. In doing so the King’s son is captured.
The mud dweller is overshadowed by his family to not believe in such fantasy and to ignore what he has been told. That all changes when his village is destroyed and his people killed. He now strives to kill those who have done this and also start on his journey.
The rock dweller has his own issue. He and his younger brother are following the star and come across dangers from all sides but they continue to follow the star.
I am not something who normally reads a book in this genre. I have to admit by the first two or three pages I was excited to read more. I read it in a matter of days. The characters were well done. The plot line and settings were also very well done. I truly enjoyed this book.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
