My Review

“When all seems lost, what was lost can be found.”

The Affiliate by Author K. A. Linde initially drew my attention with its beautiful cover. The inside definitely matched my first impression. This YA fantasy read will be one that I will continue to follow. 

Cyrene has come to the crossroads  in her life when she will be held responsible of a duty to her kingdom and king.  Her destiny, being controlled by fate, brings her into the company of the King, Queen, Prince and as she strives to carry out her newly appointed duties as Affiliate.  

Told in third person point of view, The Affiliate was a great start to this new YA fantasy series.  The slight of foreshadowing that Author K. A. Linde wrote made me inquisitive without telling all, causing me to dig further into the story. Each character had their own unique qualities and story to tell, which allowed for a greater complexity in the story. The settings were fantastical and spoke of the time and places that brought magical properties to the book.  There were so many things that just didn’t add up, and I was dying to know what secrets the objects and people in the story held.  Coming to the end of the story, the pace was very fast, and while I wanted to get to the end, there was a part of me that was sad to be leaving the story so soon and with the characters’ unknown futures hanging in the balance. I look forward to the next book in this series.

“The cord binding them together was the fuse, and every touch and look and emotion was the match igniting the flames.”
