SNYOPSIS FROM GOODREADS:
In A THRONE FOR SISTERS (Book one), Sophia, 17, and her younger sister Kate, 15, are desperate to leave their horrific orphanage. Orphans, unwanted and unloved, they nonetheless dream of coming of age elsewhere, of finding a better life, even if that means living on the streets of the brutal city of Ashton.
Sophia and Kate, also best friends, have each other’s backs—and yet they want different things from life. Sophia, a romantic, more elegant, dreams of entering court and finding a noble to fall in love with. Kate, a fighter, dreams of mastering the sword, of battling dragons, and becoming a warrior. They are both united, though, by their secret, paranormal power to read other’s minds, their only saving grace in a world that seems bent to destroy them.
As they each embark on a quest and adventure their own ways, they struggle to survive. Faced with choices neither can imagine, their choices may propel them to the highest power—or plunge them to the lowest depths.
A THRONE FOR SISTERS is the first book in a dazzling new fantasy series rife with love, heartbreak, tragedy, action, magic, sorcery, fate and heart-pounding suspense. A page turner, it is filled with characters that will make you fall in love, and a world you will never forget.
OTHER FACTS ABOUT THE BOOK:
My Review of A Throne for Sisters:
A Throne for Sisters is about two orphaned sisters, Kate and Sophia who can communicate with each other with their minds. This book is a short and fast read. I really enjoyed following the sisters story even when they went their own seperate ways. It was interesting that they were still connected even though they were on opposite sides of the city, persuing there own dreams.
Sophia persues life as a noble and Kate wants to live in the country and learn to fight.
The cover for this book is absolutely beautiful.
To be honest, I probably won’t continue with this series. I wish there were more depth to the main characters as well as the cast of secondary characters. As a whole, there aren’t many descriptions as far as the characters go, there is some backstory, but overall not a whole lot to work off of. The relationships weren’t realistic, with each sister falling in love within moments of meeting a potential love interest.
The overall dialogue and plot were quite simple and overall predictable. As soon as I really started getting into the story, it was over.
There are also a few plot holes, and characters that were mentioned that I thought would be important and then they were never mentioned again. Perhaps they will be mentioned later in the series.
This book can be read in one sitting. I recommend it to middle grade readers who enjoy fantasy and adventure.
Thanks for reading this book review.
