Review by Suze
Hitomi has magic, but she carefully tries to hide that fact. Together with the Shadow League she works against a man called Wilhelm Blackflame. Hitomi is on her own, she doesn't have parents who can look after her any longer. She's leading an uncertain existence. While helping the league with the escape of a prominent family something goes wrong and Hitomi has to deal with the consequences. She has to fight and run for her life now more than ever. Will she be able to escape the terrible plans Blackflame has for her?
Sunbolt is an action-packed adrenaline rush. Hitomi isn't safe and she has to do everything she can to stay ahead of her opponents. She lives in a place called Karolene and I loved the world-building. Intisar Khanani's descriptions are vivid and detailed which makes her characters come to life really well. There are all kinds of interesting magical creatures in this story and I can't wait to find out more about them.
Intisar Khanani is a great story teller. I love how easily her words flow and the way her imagination works. I enjoyed being introduced to Hitomi's life and history. This is the first book of a series and I look forward to reading more. Sunbolt is a promising first book. Hitomi is strong, smart and resilient and she's a girl of many talents. I'm a big fan of wonderful magical worlds and absolutely loved reading about Hitomi and her adventures.
