Book Review: Central
Today's review is on Central by Raine Thomas
Central is the second installment in Thomas' Daughters of Saraqael series and focuses primarily on Olivia and her growing relationship with James. Thomas's descriptive writing of the Estilorian world is fantastic, making you feel that you are sitting in the background watching everything that is happening around you.
In Central, the sisters, along with their Gloresti's begin to become a family in and of themselves. This bond becomes even stronger when they unexpectedly create a type of magical, binding bond between them all resulting in yet another unusual tattoo on all of their wrists. It is with this amazing bond that Amber, Gabriel, Skye, Caleb, and James are able to help Olivia when she is captured by the Mercesti.
To watch as James comes to terms with his love for Olivia was sweet and romantic, and a bit funny at times, reminding me of my own first brushes with love. Now it's time for Skye and Caleb. Perhaps that is what will happen in Thomas' third installment, Foretold.
Well written and no editing errors. Go figure. With so many books being poorly edited lately it is a joy to see one well done.
4 of 5 stars
