DAUGHTER OF THE WILDINGS Book Series Review by Kyra Halland

DAUGHTER OF THE WILDINGS Book Series Review by Kyra Halland

Daughter of the Wildings and Defenders of the Wildings book series by Kyra Halland, is a mix of genres that I thought I would never read, but I had an opportunity to check out the first book of these series for free and I gave it a try.

The realm takes place in a wild west environment where everyone wields six-shooters and take horses, wagons and trains to get places. There are bandits, Indians and the full compliment of what comes with a good western-era story.

This world of the western gunslinger is just one layer because underneath it all is the world of the bounty hunter, the hunter of rogue mages. Yes, this realm is that of gunslingers and mages.

The magic is a fun aspect because the wielder needs to be connected to the source of their power, the ground, to be most effective and stay charged. There are other ways to recharge, but this is the most dependable, and yet, is also a bit of a weakness.

But it's not as simple as that. The flats of this western world is populated purely by cowboys and simple folks who have over the years, come to hate mages, and thus, mages have a tough go at walking through their midst, if they know its a mage.

It's a fascinating mix of complexities that is brought together in this world by Kyra Halland. I ended up powering through both book series, starting with the first one, the Daughter of the Wildings, and powered through the successes, struggles and battles against both good and evil, in an effort to teach the common plains folk that mages are not what they've been told.

"The gunslinger. The rancher's daughter. They share the same dangerous secret - magic.

Silas Vendine, mage and bounty hunter, follows a trail of strange, dark magic to the remote Wildings town of Bitterbush Springs. There, he lands in the middle of a violent feud - and discovers that a local rancher's daughter is hiding a deadly secret.

Lainie Banfrey has been taught all her life that wizards are unnatural creatures with no heart and no soul. If anyone finds out she has magical powers, she could end up on the wrong end of a hanging rope. But when a gunslinger named Silas Vendine arrives in town, searching for the man who has brought Bitterbush Springs to the brink of open warfare, his power calls to hers, and she agrees to help him.

While hiding their magic from the mage-hating townsfolk - and falling for each other, in defiance of the strict laws of the Mage Council - Silas and Lainie must stop the renegade mage who is tearing the town apart, before the dark power he has discovered destroys everyone who lives in the Wildings.

Beneath the Canyons is the first book in the innovative Daughter of the Wildings epic romantic fantasy-western series. If you love magic, adventure, and romance in a unique setting, come discover the wonders and mysteries of the Wildings today!

Contains language, violence, and mild to moderate sensual content."

What can I say... I enjoyed the entire trip/book series and I don't think you could go wrong at least checking out the first book, which, the last time I checked, the Kindle version was free.
