Blog Tour - Last Messenger of Zitol



About the book: When Rishi is kidnapped and taken to Zitól, she faces an unthinkable future: she is to be sacrificed to appease the gods. To survive in this place, where greed, lust, and fear eclipse compassion, Rishi befriends the selfish and ignorant king, only to discover that he may not have the power to save her after all.

My review: This book is amazing! I loved reading every bit of it. I loved the characters, the plot, the setting. Every bit of it really sucked me in and made me want to continue reading until the very end...but I'm getting ahead of myself.

I loved the way that at the beginning of the book, it's narrated by a character that we haven't met yet, so we don't know who it is. I haven't seen a book done quite this way before this one and it made it super fun.

I liked all of the villagers on Rishi's island. I love the way that they care for their young women and teach them about virtue and just how much their virtue is worth. I loved seeing Rishi's friends later on and how they had learned for themselves how much virtue was worth by going through the experiences they did. And I loved the way a certain character went about convincing them that they were still okay.

I LOVED Rishi. I loved the way she was so sure of herself, her life, family, and virtue. Even when almost everything was taken from her, she was not willing to give up what was important to her. And I loved the way she was willing to sacrifice herself in order to hopefully help her brothers.

I liked Nadal's character as well. I liked the way he was able to learn a lot about himself, and how to treat others throughout the book. i really loved the way he was in the end. 

This book was an enchanting adventure from beginning to end! I loved every bit of it!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
