Hey everyone!! Today I have the honor of telling you all about the hidden gem that is Villager! First I want to go ahead and thank Savanna so much for giving me the chance to be on her street team for this book and for being such a kind heart! You should definitely go and give her a follow on IG andalso check her out on Goodreads! Villager is actually her third book and I’m already trying to get her other books because her writing really snuck up on me and now I can’t wait to see what other adventures she takes me on!
Villager is the first book in the Quelmirian Duology and im gonna tell you this but you’ll see it in other reviews too, put. your. seat belt. on. this ride is wild and you know what im not getting off it haha The story follows the MC Vivianna on her journey to pull her family forward after her mother abandons the family for another man, Vivianna as a character first off is such an easy likable character she follows her heart and wants the best for those around her. She accepts a job at the Quelmirian Palace and has no idea that its going to and has no idea that its going to change her life pretty drastically!
First thing I do want to mention about Villager is that the story plays out pretty smoothly. Savanna is very good at keeping the flow of the story going without adding to many unnecessary details or leaving out any important ones. Each character has their own personality and they each come with a pretty concrete backstory. I also want to mention that anything that is not addressed (which I don’t think is much) is only because those are details for the next book. Speaking of which, Savanna I need book two as soON AS POSSIBLE THANKS.
I obviously don’t want to give anything away but I will say I love prince Nex so so so much. I also of course love Vivianna, right from the beginning I love her. The story mainly follows them but of course we have a couple others, Tyde my poor nervous child, Kallimene, Princess Fiatina, and Reeve who I cannot wait to see more of in book two! (Who doesn’t like a sassy pirate?!)
Now, the actual plot of the book…vnekhbhkbdhksfjhs IM A MESS. Okay let me compose myself..but seriously It all hit me and then next thing I knew I was faced with the To Be Continued page and I was like….you’re lying…NO. And that’s pretty much all I can say without giving up too much about that.
Oh and I also want to mention how the life in the village reminds me of the villages in Skyrim and I love love love that. I love how Savanna did the fantasy in this series, it has a mix of like heavy fantasy mixed in with some newer technological aspects towards the end that I really wasn’t expecting at all and I love how it all ties in together. Over all I definitely recommend Villager or pretty much anything Savanna writes to be totally honest.
I would rate Villager 4/5 stars and if you’ve never checked out an independent author I would say to start with Savanna Roberts.
I’m very very excited for book two and I can’t wait to see how all the characters grow from the events in Villager and I’m so excited to see the Baylan Isles!! Definitely a 2019 favorite for me!
