Book Review-The Secret King: Lethao-Dawn Chapman

The Secret King: LethaoThe Secret King: Lethao by Dawn Chapman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was excited to read this book, and wasn’t disappointed- I loved it.
The writing plunges the reader straight into world without need for cumbersome exposition. , Traits of this alien race and its customs and political and social machinations are revealed naturally (though the glossary is a useful addition). This gives a feeling of freedom; that you are exploring and & learning as as the story unfolds.
The characters are fascinating, with hidden backstories and traits. The main character, Kendro is beautiful and brave, but vulnerable and flawed, making him even more lovable.
I was expecting to plough through this book, but a few times I had to stop & take a breath. Parts brought tears to my eyes, wanted to read on, but was almost scared for the characters.
The ending was both satisfying and maddening (in a good way) , I need to know what happens next. Sequel soon please Dawn!
