Orphaned and forced to serve her country’s ruling group of scribes, Karis wants nothing more than to find her brother, long ago shipped away. But family bonds don’t matter to the Scriptorium, whose sole focus is unlocking the magic of an ancient automaton army.
In her search for her brother, Karis does the seemingly impossible—she awakens a hidden automaton. Intelligent, with a conscience of his own, Alix has no idea why he was made. Or why his father—their nation’s greatest traitor—once tried to destroy the automatons.
Suddenly, the Scriptorium isn’t just trying to control Karis; it’s hunting her. Together with Alix, Karis must find her brother…and the secret that’s held her country in its power for centuries.
This book was received from the Author, and Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.
This is a non spoiler review, because you as reader need to read this book. Also, I feel sometimes I have in the past gave away to much of the plot line. This has diminished the pleasure for would be readers.
This Golden Flame, is a debut novel by the by the author Emily Victoria.
This is a fast paced moving magical adventure, with engaging characters and a stunning magical system.
The author seamless narration flows perfectly as the book is told by to POV’s. This tale starts with Karis and Alix, kidnapped off the streets of their home island. Karis finds herself forcibly separated from her brother when they were brought to Tallis island.
Karis’s ultimate goal is to find her brother once arriving at the Scriptorium. Seven long years of separation, and during this time she steals books and teaches non-binary character, to a m/m relationship, all of which is openly accepted without problem. But we also get an asexual main character in Karis. Adding more depth to the characters made for a memorable book. This is one book that shrugs off the normal suffering of some books have with their romantic entanglements.
I really enjoyed reading this book and I and am looking forward to reading future work from this author
