Book Review: Voice of Darkness: An Epic Fantasy Romance by A.G. Houser

377 pages
Dragonborn powers. A blood-thirsty sorceress. A kingdom on the brink of destruction.

Eryane’s powers as a Voiced One grow stronger every day, but the consequences of breaking the Queen’s laws against magic are becoming deadlier than ever. She yearns to show her best friend Abbott who she really is, even though it could mean her death.

Princess Caryse has had one job her entire life: protect her brother and see him take his throne on his eighteenth birthday. But she’s growing increasingly suspicious of her stepmother, and worries if Queen Arabella will let her brother have his throne at all.

Jerra’s sudden dragonborn powers are worthless to her, a farm girl with no interest in saving the world. The infuriatingly charming Commander Everson wants her to hear out the Queen‘s plea. But when the evil she’s supposed to stop strikes too close to home, she’ll have to decide if these powers are worth dying for.

Each of these women will be tested by magic... but which of them will become the Voice of Darkness?

If you love the worlds of Brandon Sanderson, the biting excitement of Tahereh Mafi, and the twisting, entangled characters of Jennifer L. Armentrout, then you won’t get enough of A.G. Houser’s mythical, breathtaking series!

Have you ever tried to sit down, read a book, and can't? You just CAN'T read that book? But, you forage on. You keep going, turning the pages and still, you just can't read the book? That's what happened to me with Voice of Darkness.

Maybe I was preoccupied with housework, kid's schoolwork, the chickens in my backyard, why the grass is so light in one section of the yard even though you water it like crazy, Bitcoin - cause is it really a thing?, re-watching all of GOT cause your spouse hasn't watched it and is probably the last person on Earth who has no idea how horrible the Red Wedding was!!!! God's only know, but hard as I try there was just no getting into this book.

Nothing really grabbed hold of me, I had a hard time getting a grip on the tale and falling in love with the characters. Gave it more time to simmer and pages to appetizer on but the spark of reading food life didn't take hold. So for these reasons, it would be unfair to rate or review a book I couldn't finish. Please read what other reviewers are saying because this one let the author down and perhaps the fate of the whole world!
