I had planned to write a review for this YA sci-fi fantasy novel, True Teryn by S.G. Blaise, that I received months ago as it was next up on my tbr, but I was only able to skim it because I had a hard time understanding what was going on! True Teryn is the second book in a duology and I was under the impression that it could be read as a standalone (it’s even advertised as being able to be read as a standalone), which it probably could but it was difficult. I didn’t know what happened in the first book so I was sort of lost as to what was going on since it is a continuation and I didn’t know who any of the people were. However, I wanted to still spotlight the book because from what I could glean from it I think the books would be a great introduction for new readers of YA sci-fi/fantasy because the premise didn’t seem too confusing and the chapters were all really short – some being just two or three pages long.
Here is the synopsis:
Lilla must recruit the biggest and most dangerous army in the Seven Galaxies, but the Teryn emperor will not comply unless Lilla earns the blessing of the Teryn Guardian Goddess Laoise.
Dealing with gods is never easy. Guardian Goddess Laoise’s condition for bestowing her blessing is for Lilla to bring her the mysterious Heart Amulet. Now Lilla is trapped in a strange place with no way out, no idea where to go or how to find the amulet.
The only way for Lilla to complete her mission is to uncover the biggest secret of all Teryns. Will she survive discovering the secret of what it means to be a True Teryn?
