The High Queen is dying…

At the royal summons, Shae mounts a wingabeast and soars through the air to the high hold of Faeraven, where all is not as it seems. Visions warn her of danger, and a dark soul touches hers in the night. When she encounters an attractive but disturbing musician, her wayward heart awakens.

But then there is Kai, a guardian of Faeraven and of Shae. Secrets bind him to her, and her safety lies at the center of every decision he makes.

On a desperate journey fraught with peril and the unknown, they battle warlike garns, waevens, ferocious raptors, and the wraiths of their own regrets. Yet, they must endure the campaign long enough to release the DawnKing and the salvation he offers into a divided land. To prevail, each must learn that sometimes victory comes only through surrender.

My Review

DawnSinger is an epic tale that unfurls in a world that is different, yet so familiar. A high fantasy world with flying horses, spirits, and mind magic, Janalyn Voigt was able to create a world that is fresh and new in the fantasy genre.

It took me a bit to get through DawnSinger, but it made the tale no less interesting, and the end was riveting. The last few chapters had me turning pages faster than I could think. Which in my perspective, is great storytelling. The overall plot was interesting enough to keep the reader’s curiosity piqued and the subtle twists and turns kept me from being able to guess the ending.

The thing I liked the most about DawnSinger was the amount of world building that Voigt did to create her world. It was just enough to make it different, but not enough as to overwhelm the story. I also liked how Voigt put a table of contents in the back of the book to help readers remember who was who! It came in handy a lot.

Overall, DawnSinger is a satisfying read, and has a subtle message at the end that will leave the reader thinking afterwards.

I rate it: 4 stars

  1. Thanks, Yakira, for participating in the DawnSinger book tour and for such a thoughtful review. I read once that fantasy worlds most like our own is easier for readers to embrace. I followed that advice when creating Elderland, so perhaps that is why DawnSinger’s storyworld seems so familiar. 🙂
