Book synopsis:

Feed your Hunger.

In a distant, war-torn land, every man, woman and child must either consume the magical substance known as Sustenance or succumb to the Hunger. Those who succumb develop deformities and face exile — or even death.

The scholar Azil wants nothing more than to lead a tranquil life and beat back the Hunger. But when a mysterious assassin tries to kill Azil, and a stranger shows up at his door challenging him to join her on a quest, he embarks on a dangerous journey to steal the sacred gems of Sustenance guarded in a forbidden fortress. To get there, Azil must venture through a land of floating cities, ravenous mage wraiths, ax-wielding warriors, and bloodthirsty bandits.

But with the sacred gems of Sustenance come volatile magic — magic so strange and dangerous, that the prophecies foretell it could usher in a golden age, or turn its wielder into the darkest of villains.

My review:

I love fantasy and I know that I have mentioned it in past reviews. So when I was approached to review this book and I read the synopsis, I was excited to read The Hunger.

And this book didn’t let me down!!!

From the very beginning, where we meet Azil, Evelet, Kaval, Sarhah, and Jamith…the story sucks you in. I couldn’t put the book down, that’s how engrossing the story is.

There was a twist at the end of the book that took me by surprise. Not giving anything away here but it is a huge twist that went with the book.

Would I read this book again? Yes, and I can’t wait to see if/when there will be another book.

Would I recommend this book to family and friends? Yes

Age range? Teen on up
