Four Boundless Stars
Honestly, this book got off to a bit of a slow start, but it picked up quickly and I am glad I got to review it. This book follows Amanda, a young woman who was orphaned as a child and hasn't yet set a good future path for herself. She finds herself in possession of a very unique medallion that brings about many changes in her life. She soons finds herself on a new path. A path filled with history and intrigue. This book had a lot of mystery. I was adopted and so I can relate to Amanda as a character. She wants to know about her past, about her birth family, and her family's history. I have been there and so this book was a good read for me because I could REALLY relate to her. I think books that the reader can relate too are the best kind. They help you feel that the story is more REAL, rather than it just being a story that is being read. It's filled with history, there are so many mysteries from a time long past. I absolutely love history and so this book was a great read if you love history.
