Book Review of Seventh Born (The Talented Book 1) by Rachel Rossano
I could tell this was a special book to the author. There was a lot of detailed world building and Christian faith woven into a story that spanned several years. If you're looking for the romance you expect from a Rachel Rossano novel (such as Duty - LOVED that book) than this is probably not the book for you, though it's hinted that it will come in the next one. But as an inspirational fantasy with characters of integrity and grit, this works.
Zezilia is an interesting character, humble yet highly gifted and intelligent. Hadrian is the reluctant hero, holding fast while surrounded by corruption and power-seeking. I can't wait to see what comes next for them.
I received an ARC copy and chose to write a review.
