Book Review – Mỹrwen of Amaranaca by Ashley Frerking

Mỹrwen of Amaranaca is a story of a young girl who after learning her true lineage, taught us that anyone can be strong if you persevere and work hard for it. It was an interesting read, but unfortunately, it wasn’t able to hold my full attention 🙁

I love fantasy/adventure stories so when the author, Ashley Frerking, offered me this book, I said yes. But unfortunately, because of my schedule and mood, I wasn’t able to read it sooner. And finally! Just this morning, I was able to finish it. Yass!

This story has a very interesting sypnosis, which is why I decided to give it a shot in the first place. I’m not sure if it was with my mood, but I started to read this book last February but only managed to finish it today, lol. I honestly liked the idea of an unpopular girl who’s always sick then one day found out that she’s from another world. But that world is currently in chaos and she got no choice but to be brave and grab herself a sword.

It was an interesting read but unfortunately, I’m more of a dialogue reader and this one only contains a little of it (which is usually common in an adventure story anyway). Far from what I expected, this one didn’t able to hold my attention until I reached the part where romance is finally visible, and it’s not a one-sided love after all, *wink. Even though it was a bit sudden, it was still able to grab my attention because you know me, I’m a sucker for romance haha.

Aside from that, I also noticed that it was almost a bit easy. Like after second try, Mỹrwen was able to defeat the bad guy that fast. Don’t get me wrong, I love HEA but this one is like a paradise of HEA which is making it very unrealistic for me. I’m not usually like this lol, I always always love my HEA, so I think it’s just my mood talking. Also, there were a time where I got confused with the shifting of narration, but it wasn’t that bad I guess.

Even after all of that, I still think Mỹrwen of Amaranaca is an interesting read, so you may still want to give it a try, *wink.
