Sanyare: The Last Descendant By: Megan Haskell Review



Thank you to Megan Haskell for providing a copy of Sanyare in exchange for an honest review. 

Summary from Goodreads- 

Trained as an elite fighter and educated in the ways of the elves, Nuriel "Rie" Lhethannian has worked decades to be accepted into the High Court messenger service. It's a simple enough occupation, but in a realm where humans are treated as little better than slaves, it's a position she'll do anything to protect.

On a routine delivery in the Human Realm, Rie is attacked by assassins from the enemy Shadow Realm and framed as a traitor. Facing execution at the hand of an unmerciful king, she evades capture and crosses the portal into enemy lands to prove her innocence.

Surprising allies arise from the shadows, assisting her search and discovering secrets she didn't know she kept. With the risk of discovery lurking at every turn, Rie must use every weapon in her arsenal to uncover the truth behind the attack. If she fails, death will be the least of her worries.

Featuring a lowly human caught between two great faerie realms, a dark elf prince with unnatural fire magic, a blood sidhe merchant's son with ambitions beyond business, and a mischievous swarm of pixies, Sanyare: The Last Descendant is a New Adult coming of age adventure you won't want to put down.  

My Review- 

Wow! Sanyare has some great world building, you can tell the author spent a lot of time developing it. I have to say for an indie book I was surprised just how well done it was. I also just LOVE the characters. Rie is kick ass and a great heroine to root for. I'm really interested to see where her journey takes her next. I liked the prince too! And of course the PIXIES!!! I love the pixies so much. They were hilarious, feisty, and fun. I haven't read that many books that have pixies in it. 

Overall Sanyare was a lot better than I had expected it to be. It has everything you need for a good novel. A bad ass heroine, funny side characters, great world building, and an interesting story that leaves you wanting more. 

I recommend Sanyare: The Last Descendant for fans of fantasy, faeries, elves & pixies, and kick ass female heroines.
