~I was sent a copy from the publishers-all opinions are my own~ I give it - 4/5 My review - When I heard the final book in this trilogy was almost out I knew I had to binge these books straight away. I don't know why I haven't started these books before but, Starborn was brilliant and Heartland was a great follow up and now all I have to do is wait for the final one....
The Worldmaker trilogy is a fantastic fantasy trilogy. If you haven't started it yet I can't recommend it enough. These are perfect for any fantasy fan. In this trilogy we follow Kyndra. In her village they have this artefact and when she is presented to it, it breaks and so sets the motion of the story which sends Kyndra on her journey to find out who she really is. She is saved by two strangers who wield magic powers no one has seen for years and they take her and she goes on this fantastic journey that Lucy has written about so well. Kyndra has to try and unlock her own magic but, will it be for the better or will something bad happen? After the events of book one we are in book 2, Heartland. Obviously no spoilers for this book but, it was the sequel I needed.
Sometimes sequels aren't as good as the first book, it happens but, Heartland was a great follow up and it has given me high hopes for the last book. Kyndra has grew a lot from the first book and it was great to read about the character growth and also that she still has some more things to learn and there might be a greater evil at bay.
Two wonderful books in this trilogy and I cannot wait for the final one, even though I don't want this trilogy to be over. Lucy is a fantastic fantasy writer and one to watch!
