Book Review - Hollow's Charge, by Arielle LeClair

I am overwhelmed with how many books I am being asked to review.  I love that I can help so many with book reviews.  So many people want to be writers and I say go for it.  I wish I could write.  I try but in the end I never get very far.  So I decided that since I can't seem to write I will help others who do.

I have tried ways to motivate myself, but I just can't seem to get myself into the right frame of mind. That is ok though, I can help others achieve their dreams.  It could also be what I need to be able to push myself to finally do some writing.

Today's review...

Book Title: Hollow's Charge

Author: Arielle LeClair

So I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I am glad that I was asked to read it. It was fun and entertaining.

Rosaleen is a wonderful lead and really directs the story in the direction it needs to go in.  She is the one chosen to become the new Keeper of the Hollow, but before she takes over her position she has to go on a quest to save her kingdom from a woman who should have never been on the throne. She finds out all this information from a person she was not planning to ever see and it throws her for a loop. 

The story and back stories were wonderfully thought out.  I loved how the characters interacted with each other. It was all well developed and there was no much just thrown together. I got a little lost only once and that was with how Rosaleen saw the king for the first time.  I had to read that part over a few times to understand what she was saying.  It was more implied, but I did not catch it.

So overall I enjoyed this book.  What I am hoping, hint hint, is that this book will become more then one book.  I know that it was ended nicely.  I am glad that this book ended well and wasn't one of those books that had to bring everything together in the last chapter and tie it all up with a nice little bow.  Arielle did so well with making sure the ending was not something all thrown together just to clean up any issues.  I wish more authors did that instead of throwing things together quickly to get to the ending.

Pros: Great characters, great story

Cons: Grammar issues

Overall rating: Very recommended!!
