Fantasy novel about the Rose of Nerine and a persecuted magical race

Tempering the Rose: The Rose of Nerine Fantasy Series (Volume 1) - Mrs Dionne Lister

 

 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Often these free books are not brilliant but I thoroughly enjoyed this one, the first part of a trilogy. It deals with Addy, abused in every possible way by her father, the High Seeker of his kingdom. The seekers persecute shelons who have magical powers. Addy discovers that she is a shelon and, with two surprising companions, she endeavours to murder her father.

 

Engagingly written, this book is worth reading by any fantasy fan although some parts are longer than necessary and the plot can be predictable in parts. A little too much introspection for my liking.
