Book Review: Seventh Born

To all my beautiful people,

I read very few fantasy stories anymore that stay with me. I read very few character portrayals that I remain consistently adoring toward for a long period of time. I have very few books which I can honestly say that I would go back and read again and again. Yet, some part of me feels that I have found one, and I want to share it with each of you as well.

The author of this book is one Rachel Rossano, a self-published author who has been writing and publishing since the early 2000’s. Her creations were something of which I remained unaware of until recently, and now I’ve found my mind in a state of unrepentant desire to mass-read everything to see if it’s as beautifully done as this first book that I have read.

Recently, I had the pleasure to read an ARC copy of Rachel Rossano’s newest release, Seventh Born, a debut novel in her trilogy “The Talented.” This book was engaging and unique in terms of both the writer’s voice and the characters.

Before we get started, I will share with you a little about the author herself. (At the bottom of this article you can find media links for her, as well as a purchase link for the book–JUST RELEASED!)

Rachel Rossano lives with her husband and three children in the northeastern part of the United States. Homeschooled through high school, she began writing her early teens. She didn’t become serious about pursuing a career as an author until after she had graduated from college and happily married. Then the children came.
Now she spends her days being a wife, mother, teacher, and household manager. Her evenings and free moments are devoted to her other loves, writing and book cover design. Drawing on a lifelong fascination with reading and history, she spends hours creating historical feeling fantasy worlds and populating them with characters who live and breathe on the page.

This shared, I only recently finished reading one of her books, and it is certainly one that I wanted to share with my darling little readers.
