I received an ARC from the author Candace Carrabus in exchange for an honest opinion. This is Mismousey’s very honest opinion of her book.First let me say ‘Thank you for allowing me the honor of reading your book, ROAR OF SMOKE”
Ms. Carrabus has a way with taking pen to paper. From the very opening page of this fascinating story she captures your attention. The way in which she describes and forms her characters – scenes right down to the smallest detail. Ms. Carrabus has a unique way in her writing style. – every word that she writes leaves you the reader wanting more of the story. You have to know what is going to happen next. Her work is exciting- fast pasted- for all readers- old and young alike – has mystery in it- and leaves you wanting the chapter in the series of Tressida. This is a terrific read and before I knew I had finished the book and said “NOOO!!!””As I did not want it to end.
When you start reading you will find Tressida in a barn reading about learning to groom horses. All she wants to do is take care of them – if the horses ever come back that is. Her gran hasn’t come home yet and it’s her birthday so they haven’t celebrated it yet.
Gran comes running in an tells her she has to leave now!! There is no time to wait they have found her – she wishes she had told her before but now she will find out most on her own. Tressida has to go in search of 2 men and has to take with her friend. But because they will do Tressida harm she has to leave or else they will harm her also.
Gran warms her not to use her smoke – as it will lead them to her. Whenever Tressida gets scared she uses it. Along the way she learns things and finds out that she has a grandfather.
This is not all that happens to Tressida in the story. There is so much more. Lots of twists and turns. So many an so much happens. You just have to read this book for yourself. Mousey gives it is a firm rating of 50 out 5 stars! And recommends it everyone to read!!!
