Summary

Who is left when the heroes fall?

Corayne lives at the end of the world. Year after year, she watches her pirate mother sail away to adventures she'll never share with Corayne. So when a mysterious immortal and deadly assassin appears on Corayne's doorstep telling her she is the last member of a dying bloodline and the only one who can save the world, Corayne seizes the chance to have her own adventure.

But the world is in graver danger than they ever imagined. Corayne and her rag-tag group of allies are alone in a world that is slowly coming apart at the seams with little but their fading hope to guide them.

Now is not the age of heroes, but courage can bloom even in the darkest corners. And it just might be enough to save everything.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Let down by the characters

Good plot, but too much world building. I wish there had been fewer POV’s and more focus on the main characters development and their relationships with each other. You need quiet tender moments and humour to make you love them and care when they are betrayed. The world was really too big, all these names of places being chucked at you and you have no idea where they are or why they matter. I hope the characters shine more in book two!

It was enjoyable but pretty slow...

Realm Breaker is a good story, I'll give it that. But I felt like so much of this book was setting up what is going to happen and introducing characters. Rather than giving a substantial story, especially given how long it is.
I think the only reason I could cope with how slow it was was because I saw somewhere that it was inspired by Lord of the Rings. And if you've read those books you know just how slow they are.
I enjoyed it and I'm definitely interested in seeing what's going to happen in this series.
But I really hope that pace picks up and the story /really/ gets going.
