Hey guys , today is the 30th and also my blog tour stop for BELOW (NORTH #1) by Alexandria Warwick hosted by Fantastic Flying Book Club (FFBC) and I have brought to you a review of the book.
About the Book
- Publisher: Wolf Publishing
- Release Date: February 4th 2020
- Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
From the author of The Demon Race comes a YA dark fantasy series inspired by Inuit mythology.
In the heart of the frigid North, there lives a demon known as the Face Stealer. Eyes,nose, mouth—nothing and no one is safe. Once he returns to his lair, or wherever it is he dwells, no one ever sees those faces again.
When tragedy strikes, Apaay embarks on a perilous journey to find her sister’s face—yet becomes trapped in a labyrinth ruled by a sinister girl named Yuki. The girl offers Apaay a deal: find her sister’s face hidden within the labyrinth, and she will be set free. But the labyrinth, and those who inhabit it, is not as it seems. Especially Numiak: darkly beautiful, powerful, whose motives are not yet clear.
With time slipping, Apaay is determined to escape the deadly labyrinth with her sister’s face in hand. But in Yuki’s harsh world, Apaay will need all her strength to survive.
Yuki only plays the games she wins.
This book is such a work of wonders. Ot has everything; love, family, friendships, villian, everything.
I really loved the main character Apaay who really wants to be recognized by her family. Willing to prove herself she embarks on a journey to get her sister’s face back from demon, face stealer.
I really was hooked fron starting to the book and enjoyed reading it alot. Though Yuki, who’s a villian here, doesn’t stay fit in the image because of her short built and mean games. Numaik, the face stealer and his motives were so intriguing. The writing was smooth and gripping which really didn’t let the book be monotonous.
I had a bit problem with the world building by the author. Being too descriptive and not being too descriptive, both ruins a book and here it was both. At times it was not much descriptive and it was hard to imagine a scene. But other than that I loved the book.
