Orestin’s Own by L. Alyssa Austin (Book Review #933)


Orestin’s Own is a dark fantasy novel.

“A prophecy is discovered foretelling a war between gods that will consume all of Everra. A young priestess named Caelesta joins Mycellane, a frail historian, and SOLARYS, an aging Knight, on a journey to take a despised prisoner of war with dangerous, necromantic powers into the frozen wasteland to the north. They seek the glavi lucerys: the one holy weapon that could avert the destruction of their world.”

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I found the story to be very compelling to read. Everything was written well and described in such a way that I didn’t want to put the book down. As much as I loved the world-building and the dynamic between the scenes and events, I kept wanting more from the characters.

The relationship between Malèbrand and Caelesta was the highlight of the story for me. The character growth was evident in the storyline, and its rich descriptive writing embodied everything needed in delivering a beautiful story.

There is more to know about the world and the characters. The story ends by closing some needed scenes but leaves so much more to know later.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read fantasy stories.
