Ivy's Blossom~P D Kalnay | Review

Title: Ivy's Blossom (Legend of the White Sword #3)
Author: P D Kalnay
Genre: YA Fantasy
Length: 166 Pages
Release: May 2016
My Rating: 4/5 Stars

I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

Ivy's Blossom is the third book in the Legend of the White Sword series and works to solidify this as one of the best young adult fantasy adventures I have read. It's not exactly high fantasy, but it's not really urban fantasy either. It's a nice blend between different variations on the fantasy theme that work really well together.

This installment focuses more on world building than character interactions and relationships. A lot of the main foundations for those were laid in the first two installments and this one needed to give us more background on the new world we're entering.

When Ivy doesn't return to the seventh world, Jack comes up with a plan to return to the first world to be with her. But first he has to prepare a lot. And he has a few more things to make in the smithy before he's ready.

If you've read the first two installments then you know there is a lot of mystery surrounding Jack and his previous life on the first world. This installment hints at what he was like in that previous life and how he is different now. There is a lot more information given about the various worlds connected by the world tree and how Jack and Ivy are connected to them.

I really can't talk about this book without giving away a lot of information from the first two, but just know that it was excellent. If you're a fan of young adult fantasy and want something that is both lighthearted and hard hitting, full of adventure and fast paced, then read this series. You won't regret it. I have yet  to be disappointed by this author and cannot recommend his books enough.
