Journey to Hope by Cindy Young-Turner
A Little Moon- a brief tale in the Thief of Hope Series
As the third son of a lesser nobleman, Edgar Gray’s prospects are limited at best. He longs to find some meaning in a life of privilege. An encounter with Rose, a peasant girl, gives him a chance to help those in need. But the Guild has spread to Tipton Village, and unrest is brewing among the villagers. Edgar and Rose are torn between love, duty, and loyalty to family, and the rise of the Guild threatens to destroy Edgar’s very way of life.
In a land where magic is outlawed, both a wizard and the faery folk have taken an interest in Edgar. Sometimes there is no escaping destiny, but even sacrifice can lead to hope.
Thief of Hope was one of my favorite books that I read in 2012. When Cindy Young-Turner asked if I would like to review Journey to Hope, a novella that goes along with the series, I jumped at the chance.
It was fascinating to read Edgar's back story before he met Sydney. I felt bad for Edgar throughout Journey to Hope. His father and the rest of his family were complete jerks. They never listened to Edgar. They also treated the peasants terribly. I liked Rose, the female main character. She was so nice to Edgar, despite how his family treated her and people like her.
I enjoyed the love story aspect of Journey to Hope. It didn't feel rushed like a lot of short stories do. The ending was kind of sad. I predicted that something bad was going to happen. I just wasn't sure what it specifically would be.
Journey to hope was a great in between novella. The novella got me even more excited than I already was for the next book in the series to be released.
I give Journey to Hope: 4/5.
