Flicker of the flame is the second book in the Outlawed Myth Series. It is a young adult fantasy story about Tereka Sabidur’s and how her life changes after her mother kicks her out. Tereka seeks the truth about herself and her family. The more she investigates, the more she realizes about a cryptic prophecy, magic amulets and how her life is in danger.
The book is geared towards a younger age, so I was intrigued with the style of writing and storytelling the book had. There are many twists and turns. There was fantasy, action, magic, and so much embodied in the tale.
It was upsetting to see how Tereka’s mother favoured her two sons over her. Tereka’s father is the one who teaches her everything, and her genuine spirit really shines throughout the story. As a trader, she shows some good skills, which shines as she travels from town to town.
I enjoyed the story and thought the book was suitable for the age range in question. I recommend this book to young kids and those who like magic and sorcery.Tweet
