Review: Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson

Title: Sorcery of Thorns
Author: Margaret Rogerson
Genre: YA Fantasy
Type: Standalone
POV: Third Person

Elisabeth Scrivener lived and breathed books. Growing up in the Great Library of Summershall, her lifelong dream was to become a warden who protects the library’s most treasured books. But a string of sabotages across the kingdom’s libraries unleashed monsters that threatened the kingdom. Together with sorcerer Nathaniel Thorn, they must figure out how to save everyone while still get out alive.

If there’s one book that written for book lovers it would be this one. When I saw the word library in the blurb, I didn’t need to read the rest because I’m already sold.

“You’ve already proven yourself to be an agent of chaos. I’m not about to forget it.”

Elisabeth was not a typical badass YA Fantasy female character. She was more of a clumsy dork but still badass in her own way. Nathaniel was amusing and of course, a certain fact about him made me excited lol! But one character that stole the show was Silas. He was actually my favorite character.

“But there is always more than one way to see the world. Those who claim otherwise would have you dwell forever in the dark.”

Story-wise, at first I thought it was too “young” for my liking but as the story progressed, the action intensified, it was pretty epic. The world was fascinating and magical. I especially loved the grimoires and their personalities.

Sorcery of Thorns is an enchanting tale of finding one’s purpose. It would appeal to readers looking for an epic fantasy with a hint of romance.
