I voluntarily received a copy of Make Me Whole for an honest review. This one took me a bit to get into and I was honestly worried I wasn’t going to like it. I think the names throw me because there are not easy to wrap the tongue around. However I kept reading and the story got really really good and exciting.
Quildor is tasked to return to the village of his birth after 18 long years away, to observe rumored weird happenings. He is finally returning home, returning to her, Wren. Wren, is a now a servant of the gods, a priestess if you will and acts to help shepherd the dead to their final resting place. (Kinda an icky gig if you ask me.) Her village is under a plague and people are dying at an astounding rate. And those that are supposedly there to help are working against her and her peoples beliefs.
Quildor was ordered to observe only, but when he sees the woman he still loves is stricken by plague he can’t, and is spurred to action. But the plague turns out to be much more malevolent than first appearance and it is a fight to stay alive and escape the village.
The story is very exciting and is loaded with intrigue, action and a bit of passion. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
My favorite quote from the story:
"There is no good or evil…….only truth and lies. We can learn to sort one from another when spoken, but the truth of a man’s thoughts is his greatest-kept secret. Time spent pondering another man’s truth is time for him to bury a blade in your gut.”
