Zondervan Blog Tour: Avenger

Author: Heather Burch

Genre: Fantasy

Series: Halflings

My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8

My overall opinion: Since I unfortunately had not had the opportunity to read the first two books in this series (Halflings and Guardian), I wasn’t really sure at all of what to expect. I knew the cover was very interesting, but ultimately? I didn’t know what was ahead. At the beginning, I was a little confused – however, this is entirely my fault for not reading the books in order like they’re meant to be read. However, I figured everything out in a satisfactory manner soon enough and flew through the rest of the book; it was very easy to read. Heather Burch has a great imagination for so many fascinating scenes, and she seems full of creativity too! The book moved along quickly (but not in a rushed manner) and had all kinds of adventures and gripping suspense, along with a bit of romance. Definitely kept me reading! I really enjoyed the characters and came to really like them as the story progressed. And then there was a drop-off ending – you all know what I mean! Sure hoping to read the next book. Overall? Read the whole series, not just this one. But it was good!

**Many many thanks to Charleen from Zondervan who was so kind as to send me a lovely hardcover of this book. I wasn’t required to post a positive review, nor was I reimbursed for this review in any way other than the book.**

Would like to read this one too but think I'll read books one and two first, which I have. That way, I'll not be confused and will get the entire "scope" of the saga. :)

Good idea. I'd definitely like to read the first two as well...maybe our library will get them. :) Defs recommend reading them in order for best understanding!
