Review: Idisina The Black Rider

A richly woven fantasy novel about the battle between the sexes and the struggle over ideology, power, and religion. 

…..take a moment and imagine foot prints on the sand, the foam on the beach washes back and forth leaving a thin imprint that divides between thought and action. If killing awakens a flutter of butterflies in your gut, would you commit the crime? 

On an island where women rule, Daniel starts a revolution. During the night of his grandmother's death, Daniel decides to run with his emotions. From that moment on, he ventures out from the city of his birth and meets the characters that will fashion his future; a warrior, a deserter, a man and a woman.

I am usually not a fan of fantasy novels, but this is a well written story with a plot that keeps the reader turning the pages. It hits on the readers every emotion and pulls them in as part of the story.

The characters are easy to bond with. All of them are well developed and bring something to the tale. The author beautiful depicts his imaginary world and brings it all alive in a way that makes it very believable. The descriptions are rich without being overdone. This is just an overall good read. 

I would recommend this book to readers age 12-99. It is a very long book, but doesn't get boring. 

I received a copy of this book free in exchange for a review. My opinions are my own.
