Tour + Review and Giveaway: Waterfall Traveler by S.J. Lem

The Waterfall Traveler
S.J. Lem
Publication date: April 19th 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
All eighteen-year-old Ri wants is to cure her adoptive father Samuel from his hallucination-inducing illness. Everyone in her village tells her it’s impossible. But when she meets two newcomers in the forest—a gruff rogue with a vendetta against the gods and a charming fugitive who saves her life—she’ll be torn away from Samuel and swept across the sea to an oppressive city governed by a ruthless tyrant. Once there, she’ll not only have to confront Samuel’s unlawful past, but a vicious evil that threatens all mankind.
In this tale of bravery, friendship, and unforeseen love, Ri risks it all to save those she cares for. But if she prevails, she’ll find the one thing she yearns for most—a cure for Samuel.

3.5 stars

I was honestly intrigued by the cover of the book when I decided to read this book, and I'm glad that I read it. I really enjoyed this story, I thought it was very original and that's something that I like seeing: originality. The cover gives the impression that this might be a lighter read but it isn't. There are scenes that are very dark and then there are scenes that are very deep.

Waterfall Traveler is a very lengthy book, but the pacing and the amount of action that occurs doesn't let the size seem to daunting. Although, there were parts where the pacing does slow down, but overall it felt like a quick read.

The concept and plot of the book were unique. The characters are all very well-written and developed. I loved getting to know every character.

All in all, this is a book that I would highly recommend to fantasy lovers. This is a book that will stay with you days after if you enjoy it. I cannot wait to read more in this series.
