Lucy has lived secluded from the world on an island for years. The only other person on the island is Norrie, who tells her the darkness will find her if she sings. Only Lucy wants and adventure and she gets more than she bargained for when she sings.
Now Lucy is in hiding with Nat, who hates magic and Penebrygg, who wants Lucy to save them. Lucy doesn’t know the first thing about being a Chantress, but she is willing to try to save England and the friends that she has come to love.
It takes one song to change Lucy’s world forever.
This book was highly unique. I’ve never read anything like it. If you have please leave a comment, I’d love to read it. :D Lucy is a fifteen year old girl and a lot is on her shoulders. She is the last Chantress and only she can save England. A Chantress is someone who can use magic through song. That being said Lucy is going to try her best to save them, even if it puts her in danger. There is one person who dislikes Chantresses and he’ll do anything to eliminate them. It was all very interesting to watch. Although the book to me seemed a little slow. It didn’t really start to pick up until Lucy learned how to control her songs. If you are looking for a romantic book, this is not for you. Yes, there is a love interest, but they don’t really start showing it till the end. Honestly, it seemed a little forced. It could have done without it. Hopefully it will not seem as forced in he next one and they can get to know each other more. I really would like to learn more about Nat and his past. We just get a little taste of it in this one. :D
Overall: If you love a historical book packed with magic this book is for you.
