Inhaltsangabe

Torn is the first book in an enchanting debut fantasy series featuring a seamstress who stitches magic into clothing, and the mounting political uprising that forces her to choose between her family and her ambitions, for fans of The Queen of the Tearling.

In a time of revolution, everyone must take a side.

Sophie, a dressmaker and charm caster, has lifted her family out of poverty with a hard-won reputation for beautiful ball gowns and discreetly embroidered spells. A commission from the royal family could secure her future - and thrust her into a dangerous new world.

Revolution is brewing. As Sophie's brother, Kristos, rises to prominence in the growing anti-monarchist movement, it is only a matter of time before their fortunes collide.

When the unrest erupts into violence, she and Kristos are drawn into a deadly magical plot. Sophie is torn - between her family and her future.

Magical

A beautifully written (and very well narrated), out-of-the ordinary fantasy novel, with fascinating and highly current politics, 'tasteful romance', an innovative magic system (yes, it can still be done) and one of the best protagonists in recent memory. Torn works well as a standalone novel, but I'm nevertheless excited to find out where the story goes in future entries.
