Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great day! Today I am going to be reviewing Catling’s Bane by Diana Wallace Peach. This book, along with the other three in the series was sent to me by Diana Wallace Peach.
Book Name: Catling’s Bane
Author: Diana Wallace Peach
Genre: YA, Fantasy, Paranormal
Summary: I was introduced to a world which had flaws so similar to ours, it was hard for me to believe that it is fiction and not a story of some hidden country.
In the city of Mur-Vallis live Farlanders who possess magical abilities connected to nature. The Ellegeans establish an order where they are the ones who control society. The Farlander’s magic was a threat to the Ellegeans and their system. Something had to be done.
Every hanging day, the ones with magic who posed a threat to the Ellegeans were persecuted as a showcase of entertainment for the people. The Influencers’ Guild within the Ellegeans held control over the people’s emotions. The people had no control whatsoever over what they were feeling while their own family was being slaughtered. A mother could be grinning like a fool while her son was being put to death.
All, except for Catling. Catling possessed a birthmark resembling a rose around her eye which allowed her to see and cut the threads of influence binding her and the people around her. Naturally, they want her dead.
Ok. I’ll admit something. This book was not easy for me to read as it was very different from the books I read. But this book actually opened up a whole new horizon of books for me. The problems faced by the world are somewhat similar to our world. The people who posed a threat to the system were persecuted in this world. They were hushed up. Similar to our world, wouldn’t you say?
Thank you, Diana, for this opportunity! I really enjoyed reading it! ♥

Also, so sorry for the long absence. My internet has not been stable here due to repairs and it won’t be stable until a few more days. Everything has been going on great. I managed to read 5 books before the 15th of April and I really hope to read at least 10 this month. Let’s see!
