The Rise of Xosha is the story of the reclaiming of Xosha by the Dragon race. In the story, Oceanus and his siblings, Pyre and Jade, have fled their homeland for Xosha under the guidance of Rose, the mysterious white dragon who has been picked on since she was young. While Rose begins fulfilling the prophecy with the help of the remaining dragons, Jade rebels under the pressure of the demon queen. Betrayal, romance, and death await the unsuspecting dragons as well as new friends and enemies.
I found some grammar and spelling mistakes while reading, but none of them managed to obstruct the flow of the story.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good fantasy novel. There are many elements to the story that I feel would also draw in readers of other similar genres as well.
Overall, I enjoyed this book immensely. Once I picked it up, I didn’t put it down, and I managed to finish it in a single sitting. The characters are unique and grow as the story progresses in a way that they feel familiar and the world is built and describes in beautifully vivid detail. I found it incredibly easy to visualize everything as it happened. S. Cu’Anam Policar has a raw talent that is refreshing and witty. For being a debut novel, The Rise of Xosha clearly displays her abilities to write a story so enthralling that you’ll be wishing it never ended.
I give The Rise of Xosha 5 out of 5 pandas!
