I ve been following Jill Williamson for YEARS now and can t believe it s taken me this long to read one of her books But here I am finally on the other side of By Darkness Hid It s a deceptively small scale fantasy story that s actually a part of a much grander scheme as we find out in the endWhat I Loved Achan really grew on me He has a relatable blend of strength fear dry wit fledgling confidence and heroism about him Branded as a stray orphan he becomes a suire and begins to learn bloodvoicing which is this world s version of telepathy and as it turns out he is very very powerful indeed He just needs a little help controlling that power Vrell was great Yes she falls under the girl dressing up as a boy to escape an arranged marriage trope but she s feisty and a smart herbalist to boot Our teenaged heroes are actually scared when they have good reason to be scared and they cry in moments anyone would naturally feel overwhelmed I don t know why I m pointing that out but I felt their reactions to things were realistic Speaking of realistic I learned so much Jill has really done her medieval research I can t say for sure because I m not a historian but this book feels like one of the most historically accurate medieval settings I ve read about even though it s a fantasy world Not romanticized at all Bloodvoicing As the book went on and of the rules and methodology of this magic came to light I loved how people can jump through other bloodvoicers and use it to spy on others The different religions were a nice touch Achan has grown up believing in the goddess Cetheria while Vrell follows Arman the father God I loved Sir Gavin grumbling about never having taught a suire before and not being very good at it You did fine sir That twist ending I should ve seen it coming but it still took me by surpriseWhat I Didn t Love The book at times felt a little long or slow moving But still interesting somehow I just wasn t always burning to turn the next page This was due in part to life being rather busy during the time I was reading itConclusionI shall definitely be picking up the next two books in the series This was a fun start to an adventure that s only just beginning I Love You Almost Always just needs a little help controlling that power Vrell was great Yes she falls under the girl dressing up as a boy to escape an arranged marriage trope but she s feisty and a smart herbalist to boot Our teenaged heroes are actually scared when they have good reason to be scared and they cry in moments anyone would naturally feel overwhelmed I don t know why I m pointing that out but I felt their reactions to things were realistic Speaking of realistic I learned so much Jill has really done her medieval research I can t say for sure because I m not a historian but this book feels like one of the most historically accurate medieval settings I ve read about even though it s a fantasy world Not romanticized at all Bloodvoicing As the book went on and of the rules and methodology of this magic came to light I loved how people can Gloom Town jump through other bloodvoicers and use it to spy on others The different religions were a nice touch Achan has grown up believing in the goddess Cetheria while Vrell follows Arman the father God I loved Sir Gavin grumbling about never having taught a suire before and not being very good at it You did fine sir That twist ending I should ve seen it coming but it still took me by surpriseWhat I Didn t Love The book at times felt a little long or slow moving But still interesting somehow I uinze dias just wasn t always burning to turn the next page This was due in part to life being rather busy during the time I was reading itConclusionI shall definitely be picking up the next two books in the series This was a fun start to an adventure that s only Cheating for the Chicken Man just beginning

Prince to a council presentation their convoy is attacked Achan is wounded and arrested but escapes from prison only to discover a secret about himself he never believed possibl. This THIS is how you write Christian Epic Fantasy I ll be honest I usually hate these sorts of books Christian fantasy and Christian literature in general tend to bewhat is the word Preachy Overbearing It pains me to say and I wish it weren t so yet it s true But none of that hereI think I added this to my Dear Santa list over a year ago because it looked like my kind of trouble Over vacation I was browsing through my wish list and saw that it was free for Kindle Fearing it was too good to be true I prodded at the page for a bit before hitting download A few days later I went and bought the second Now I m reading the third and thinking there should be a bigger fandom for the seriesThe plotOkay so I did feel like the story was congested for the first two or three chapters In the beginning I was wondering where it was headed and thinking it was a little slow but so many people on Goodreads and had loved it and I figured there had to be a reason I uickly discovered that there wasI m one of those people who takes what happens to the characters personally I spent plenty of time pacing worrying panicking and putting down my Kindle because I couldn t take the suspense As soon as we got through the first few chapters the story took off like a firework and swept me right up in it I love it when a book does that and I admit there were a few twists I did not see comingThe charactersAchan is basically a punching bag for the local lowlife population Poor baby In essentially every other chapter he s getting punched stabbed shot strangled burned poisoned whipped or something else horrible Spoiler it does not get better as the series progresses He can be naive and occasionally self righteous even temperamental but all things considered I think he turned out pretty fricking good Sir Gavin is a knight who sort of takes Achan under his wing and I kept wanting to yell DO NOT LEAVE HIM UNATTENDED every time Gavin walked off the pageThe other POV character is Vrell a young noblewoman disguised as a foundling boy to avoid marrying the main villain Their two storylines didn t directly intersect until than halfway through the book I think but still meshed together uite well Vrell doesn t take half the physical poundings Achan does she d probably be dead but she still gets her fair share of trouble She has her own set of faults and flaws and ualities and I thought she was a realistically structured character just as Achan wasAt present I m trying to think of people I could coerce into reading this I adored the story greatly appreciated the author s presentation of the religious elements and I think my brothers and friends are going to have this shoved in their faces at the first possible opportunity Reiki A Comprehensive Guide just as Achan wasAt present I m trying to think of people I could coerce into reading this I adored the story greatly appreciated the author s presentation of the religious elements and I think my brothers and friends are going to have this shoved in their faces at the first possible opportunity
