The Lilies of Dawn – book review

August 03, 2016

Lilies of dawn book cover Lilies of Dawn by Vanessa Fogg

This is a fantasy tale of a slightly different sort – not your regular “protagonist beats up evil person in epic battle”. It is more real, more tender, more inward-looking, more fantastic, lyrical. Vanessa has done a great job with the world-building – beautiful, evocative, familiar yet different enough.

The story evokes loneliness, melancholy, and a the same time grit and celebration. I love the story as much as the world and would love to read more books set in this world.

But no review of this book will be complete without mentioning its cover by Likhain. Vibrant and detailed, beautiful. Matches the mood of the book perfectly.

A highly recommended short, beautiful read.

Disclosure: I received an advance review copy from the publisher Annorlunda Books
