Chaos Born Chronicles from the Applecross #1 - Rebekah Turner
A fresh and exciting debut novel introducing the Chronicles of the Applecross.
Lora Blackgoat, smuggler and mercenary, has been laying low after a job gone bad made her a laughing stock in the industry. When a childhood friend turns to her for help, Lora leaps to restore her reputation and starts hunting a killer who is stalking the gas-lit streets.
She never expects that her path will lead her to the Order of Guides, a sadistic militant religious organisation - or to Roman, a deadly and dangerously attractive half-angel warrior who also hunts the killer.
When Lora discovers that the killer has broken fundamental laws of magic to enter the city, she also uncovers a conspiracy that leads back into her own dark past.
I was asked to review this from Netgalley.
I found it hard to get into at the start of the book due to the pressure of the main character Lora Blackgoat not exactly grabbing my attention. For me personally, the characters aren't grabbing my attention long enough for me to continue. I am finding the plot a bit boring as it progresses. The synopsis is a grabber and will make you want to read it, but for me, I just couldn't understand the storyline.
