Title: Sorcery of Thorns
Author: Margaret Rogerson
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy

Initial Thoughts:

Sorcery of Thorns by Margaret Rogerson had me captivated right from the beginning! The atmosphere and writing style immediately drew me into the story. The world-building is remarkably vivid.I enjoyed the concept of magic libraries and grimoires; it was both fascinating and unique. 

The action scenes were exceptionally well-written. Often, lengthy action sequences tend to become tiresome, but in this case, the author's skillful execution made them engaging and far from boring.

Furthermore, I genuinely appreciated the whimsical dialogue, which happens to be one of my favorite aspects of books in general. I always find myself drawn to characters with a sarcastic or humorous demeanor, and Elizabeth, in particular, possesses a great sense of humor that adds an extra layer of enjoyment to the story.

Characters & Romance

Elizabeth is a fantastic heroine! I absolutely admire her determination, unwavering resolve, and confidence. My only tiny gripe about her character is that sometimes her actions felt a bit predictable. It would have been awesome if she surprised me with some unexpected moves.

When I first encountered Nathaniel Thorn, I thought he would be the typical love interest, and in a way, he is. However, he's never mean or annoying, and his sense of humor is top-notch. While Elizabeth and Nathaniel do follow some of the usual YA tropes, it didn't bother me. They had a genuinely sweet connection, and I found myself cheering for them to end up together. Silas, on the other hand, is a captivating character. Being a demon, he shares a complex relationship with Nathaniel and his family which is interesting.

In conclusion:

The reason I gave it a 4.5 and not a  5 is that while I did like the characters, they didn't quite make me fall head over heels for them. The book didn't stick with me after I finished it, and that's usually a sign for me that I'm truly obsessed with a book.

Overall, Sorcery of Thorns is a super enjoyable read, especially if you're into magic and fantasy. It offers a great balance of action, plot, and dialogue, all wrapped up in an enchanting sense of mystery and magic.
