I just finished reading Seven Jane’s debut novel The Isle of Gold.
When it came out, I interviewed Seven Jane, and shortly after I purchased the book on iBooks.
I reviewed this book on Goodreads as well.
This was a fantastic debut novel. It was exciting and blended history and mythology really well. I was loving it.
There was enough anticipation at every turn, wondering what will happen, what hardship will they face, how will they overcome. The pacing was great until the ending.
That was the only part I disliked.
The big fight that the whole book has been leading up to is skipped over. One character is revealed to be a mythological creature, and in my opinion, it was unnecessary amidst all the other surprise identities.
Even with my dislike of the ending, I’d say this book is a 4/5. I still highly recommend it, as everything else is excellent and well-written.
