New Review! Chains Carried on Wings (Clydian Chronicles #1) by Marina Ermakova 5 Cranky Stars

Chains Carried on Wings (Clydian Chronicles, #1)Chains Carried on Wings by Marina Ermakova
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Cranky Stars

As confused as this book made me, I am still giving it 5 stars. Usually the titles make perfect sense with the story. However, this title confused me unless it refers to one small section late towards the end of the story. The storyline itself is fascinating and fast paced. The characters are believable for this genre. It will be interesting to see where the author goes with this series.

The story takes place in a remote village called Running Water in the land of Gerosia. However, the inhabitants are mostly Clydian by descent. Part of the ruling family is two outsiders but no one outside the family knows their origins. This is a superstitious primitive community. They know about Goblins but consider them a fiction. They also strongly believe in gender roles. Women run the homes and men are the hunter/trackers.

So when our heroine Saig and her friend Gwen insist on being hunters, tempers flare. A stranger appears and claims to be a tradesman who was robbed. At the same time, a goblin kills a woman in the village. Too many odd things start happening all at once. When the village is invaded and accused of treason, events take place that bring to light just how different these outsiders are. Only then does Saig and her cousin Trei find out their true heritage. They may be the keys to saving their village.
