The Wandering Star by SP Mittson

Book Review - 

As a fervent fan of fantasy novels, I always seek a new world to immerse myself in, filled with magic, adventure, and intriguing characters. SP Mittson's first book in The Shifter's Trance series, The Wandering Star, promised just that, and I was eager to dive into its pages. 

From the very beginning, the story gripped me with its unique premise. Eloise Hector is the enigmatic princess of Murkwood. She is burdened with a mysterious glitch that sets her apart from others. She can shift to the Shadowland, where The Shadow Queen resides, trapped and waiting to be free. 

Eloise's struggle with her powers takes a tragic turn when her mother passes away, leaving her grappling with newfound abilities, dangers, and a sense of loss. This sets the stage for a journey of self-discovery and redemption.

One of the aspects I appreciated most about the novel was its character development. Eloise is portrayed as a multifaceted protagonist, grappling with the weight of her burdens while coming to terms with her identity. Her journey from a sheltered princess to a formidable force is compelling and relatable. Similarly, Kayden Parsons, initially introduced as an obnoxious figure, undergoes significant growth throughout the story, transforming into a complex and endearing character.

The dynamic between Eloise and Kayden is a highlight of the novel. This enemies-to-lovers duo's interactions are filled with tension, wit, and undeniable chemistry, adding depth to the narrative. The evolution of their relationship from adversaries to allies is skillfully crafted, keeping the readers engaged and rooting for them. 

As the narrative progresses, readers discover the mystery behind Eloise and Kayden's chemistry, her purpose, and her connection with the Shadow Queen. The intricate descriptions of Murkwood and Shadowland transport the reader to vivid and immersive settings brimming with magic and danger, adding suspense and intrigue to the story.

The novel's pacing is well-executed, with each chapter building upon the last, leading to a thrilling and satisfying conclusion. The action sequences are expertly choreographed, keeping the story's momentum flowing while allowing for moments of reflection and introspection. They kept me on the edge of my seat throughout.

Overall, it is an irresistible and spellbinding read that will appeal to fans of fantasy and adventure alike. SP Mittson's masterful and entertaining storytelling, richly drawn characters, and mesmerizing world make for an unforgettable reading experience. I eagerly await the next installment in this spellbinding series. Due to the trigger warnings below, I recommend this book only to adult fantasy readers.
