Splinters of Scarlet: Review

Rating: 4/5 stars
Review: This book was an enjoyable read that involved magic which if you use it too much you can die from it. The main character, Marit, and her orphan sister Eve move to the Vestergaard household when Eve gets adopted. In the Vestergaard household magic is used but how long can Marit keep her secrets from Eve before she finds out and can she discover Vestergaard's secrets?

I enjoyed this historical, fantasy book that takes place in Denmark. The author's writing was beautiful and I loved the way she described the clothes that Marit made for Eve. I loved the magic system that the author created in this book which was easy and quick to understand. Seeing the story of how if you use too much of the magic, it can bring consequences. It's a fresh and unique twist to the story that you don't see in all books.

The characters in this book were easy to connect with and there were two POVs in this book that made it more interesting. I loved the main character, Marit, because she was such a strong, fierce character that would do anything to stay with Eve and protect her even if she might die. I also loved Helene Vestergaard at the ending ( can't spoil why) and I think you would too if you read this book.

This book was not only about the mystery but also about family relationships which were the theme to this book. Seeing how Marit would do anything to Eve and having that relationship develop. Though you are probably wondering if there is romance in this book. There is but it's not the key factor to the story. There is romance development with Marit and someone but the relationship theme in this book is more family vs romance.

The reason I gave this book 4 stars was because of the mystery. Somehow I felt like it should have been a mystery where you find the villain at the end of the story and not in the middle. That was my only problem but other than that this book was amazing. I totally recommend this book. Perfect for fans who love fantasy and historical fiction combined.
