Title Vivatera (Vivatera #1)
Author Candace J. Thomas
Description from Amazon
The king of Southwick has fallen, and his six daughters have disappeared into hiding, each protecting a magical element that will keep the balance within the world of Parbraven. But when one of the hidden girls is captured by an evil set to obtain them all, the fate of the magical world shifts. The solution rests on a simple farm girl named Naomi, who knows nothing of this world, nor of the awaking magic stirring inside her.
Naomi Bucklingdown has no idea of the importance of her survival; her only clue is a mark on her neck – An interweaving star. In a fast moment Naomi’s life changes forever when she discovers a young woman with the same unusual mark on her neck, but before she can reach her she is kidnapped; spirited away by a mysterious stranger, Reynolds Fairborne. Reynolds alone knows the secret of Naomi’s identity. Only he knows the danger she would face if she were ever discovered, for the Kingdom of Parbraven is poisoned by magic and the only hope for survival lies in a secret only Naomi has. This is where her journey of discovery begins and her true identity is about to be revealed.
Notes About the Description
So the description on Amazon is waaaaaaay more vague. I got this one from GoodReads after scouring the internet for a better synopsis. I applied for this book on NetGalley right when I first joined and was SUPER excited to have gotten it and then I was also approved for a bunch more titles. (Beware the rabbit hole that is NetGalley applications!). Anyway, this book has been sitting in my queue since March and I am doing a major clean up of all my pending items (across my entire life) and it seemed like a good time to tackle this book.
I am actually going to listen to the audiobook of this one (despite having an e-book from NetGalley). I tried to read this one on my phone and could not get into it. Hopefully, the audiobook will be better!
Stay tuned for my review!
