Review: Banished by Liz De Jager




Sworn to protect, honour and slay. Because chaos won’t banish itself…

Kit is proud to be a Blackhart, now she’s encountered her unorthodox cousins and their strange lives. And her home-schooling now includes spells, fighting enemy fae and using ancient weapons. But it’s not until she rescues a rather handsome fae prince, fighting for his life on the edge of Blackhart Manor, that her training really kicks in. With her family away on various missions, Kit must protect Prince Thorn, rely on new friends and use her own unfamiliar magic to stay ahead of Thorn’s enemies. As things go from bad to apocalyptic, fae battle fae in a war that threatens to spill into the human world. Then Kit pits herself against the Elder Gods themselves – it’s that or lose everyone she’s learnt to love.


My thoughts

Just a quick review today for Liz's debut novel. Liz is one of the first bloggers I met when I first started blogging and I have been so excited for her on her road to publication and I almost can't believe I am now it a position to review it on here.

If you love urban fantasy this book will blow you away. Awesome world building with a kick-ass main character who you will love In Kit Blackhart (think Buffy, less vampires and more Fae).. I was drawn in from the first page and loved how action packed it was from the outset. A really satisfying read in itself but so much set up for the rest of the series which I cannot wait to get my hands on. A stunning debut.

The cover caught my attention immediately. Your comparison to Buffy pretty much sealed the deal; I need to read this book!
