Book Review of Lichgates (The Grimoire Saga #1)

Book Review of Lichgates (The Grimoire Saga #1)

Welcome to Books, Books, and More Books.  I am pleased to share this book with you.  Thank you for visiting and please come again.


The final page will leave you breathless.

When Kara Magari uncovers a secret door in the middle of the forest, she discovers (and trips through) a portal to a hidden world full of terrifying things: Ourea. She just wants to go home, but the natives have other plans for her. She clashes with immortal shapeshifters, is carried off by a dragon, nearly dies on several occasions, and somehow becomes the master of an ancient book of magic called the Grimoire. Every time she thinks she's safe, her new "friends" show their true colors.

Kara needs an ally, or she might not survive Ourea's monsters. She drops her guard when Braeden, a native soldier with a dark secret, vows to keep her safe. And though she doesn't know it, her growing attraction to him may just be her undoing.

For twelve years, Braeden Drakonin has lived a lie. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. Though he begins to care for this stranded girl, there's something he wants more. He wants the Grimoire.

Welcome to Ourea, where only the cunning survive.

Author Information: 

I believe everyone should be able to find a book that sticks with them forever. Everyone should at some point live the magic of their favorite worlds, characters, and creatures. So when I write, I keep in mind the magic that comes with those eternal stories.

The Grimoire Saga


Kara Magari is about to discover a beautiful world full of terrifying things…and ruthless people. Welcome to Ourea—where only the cunning survive.


Kara ignited a war when she stumbled into Ourea. To survive it, she and the man she loves must become the evil each has grown to hate.


Heritage is due in Fall 2013. Buckle up. The war has officially begun.


Illusion, the final novel in the Grimoire Saga, is set to release in Summer 2014.



Lichgates is a story about an alternate world that young Kara stumbles onto by mistake, or not.  While there she finds a book that she opens which makes her the new and last vagabond and keeper of the Grimoire.  She alone is the only person not bound by blood to serve a leader of one of the warring tribes. It is her lot to bring peace, but she is just a young girl who has lost her family.  The one person protecting her is the one person with more to lose than her.  He is the son of the most evil ruler of them all.  Can they trust each other?  Will they be able to bring peace?  Not in this book.

Still this is a wonderful read.  A fascinating look at a new, yet familiar world.  I look forward to reading more of their story and seeing how it turns out. 

I give this story 4.5 out of 5 clouds.
