A Review: The Sapphire Flute by Karen E. Hoover

sapphire-large In the world of Rasann, two girls live. Ember is a girl who discovers she can see magic and change the appearance of things at will. Kayla is a musician who is given the Sapphire Flute and told not to play it. Both girls are sent on quests and both face danger sent from the villain of the tale, C’Tan.

The chapters weave between the two girls’ paths, including an occasional scene from C’Tan’s point of view.

The prologue starts the book off with a bang and sets the book in motion, making you not want to put it down the entire time. Throughout the book there are twists and turns that make the plot intriguing and unexpected things continue all the way to the very end.

I could easily imagine the characters and the places that they went. Between the love-struck Kayla and the slightly crazy C’Tan, the emotions were strong and you could almost feel them as you read.

Karen Hoover has started a great series and I can’t wait for the rest of them to come out. The first book has landed itself on my favorite’s list and I’m sure the other six books will too.
