Book Review - Skyblind by J R Fehr

I have read "Magicians' Workshop" by J. R. Fehr and liked it much. He has mastery over dystopian cum fantasy world. He creates a fantastical concept that can give a good reading experience.

Book Blurb
Corwin Medisto is turning 16 and becoming a man, but that’s the furthest thing from his mind. He and his twin sister Taylee have discovered an ancient relic fueled by dark magic that has a mysterious link to their long dead mother. Worse yet, they’ve accidentally activated it. 
Desperate to learn the truth of its origins and to break free of its curse, the twins leave home with their childhood friend and embark on a quest that leads them to come face to face with Syyris Sagrado, the god of Day, and discover a forbidden power greater than the forces of Day … and Night
Skyblind is the story of Anancia. A country which was ruled by God Syrris and his caretakers who were known as Elders. Corwin and Taylee were siblings living with their uncle Jael in outskirts. Things were normal and filled with hard work. They were okay with life. But on their 16th birthday, they received a relic which belonged to their mother. Taylee being naughty and enthusiast forced her brother to open relic. Unknown to them relic got activated. Soon after the incident, they found their uncle sick. Even before they can think of something, they were attacked by dark ones and locura. They were captured in the struggle. Taylee was saved by an Exile named Skyblind. With help of Skyblind, people got rescued but they were taken to the Lightsphere. Things became difficult as siblings got separated. Various characters and society itself was on the verge of breaking due to chaos. Check out the book to know more about the story.

J. R. Fehr has a unique style of starting chapters as each chapter starts with a relevant quote or line from fantasy world literature. The story was kept to the point keeping audience interest in mind. Characters were given good space to be matured through the story only. The author need not go into the emotional part just to explain it, which I liked.

Though it's a fantasy story, I didn't find it as grand as "Magician's Workshop". I can recommend the book to millennials.
