Sora is a young spoilt rich girl who is about to be married off to someone she has never met. Her only option, as she sees it, is to run away, only nothing goes to plan. At the point where she plans to run, her father is murdered and she is kidnapped at knife point, by the assassin and so starts her journey.
Initially I found Sora an uncaring character but as her circumstances change, so does she. When she is taken they treat her like the prisoner she is, but once they realise that she wears a magical necklace, known as the Cat’s Eye, she becomes valuable to them. Her thoughts are one of escape but fear holds her in place and she starts to think of her captures as more than just her enemy. They open her eyes to other races that she thought had died out a long time ago, to new ideas that have been kept from her, but now they are all running for their lives as a Wolfy mage is close on their trail and he wants them all dead. We never find out who hired the assassin, known as Crash, or why her father had to die but I assume these details will be imparted in the continuation of the series.
The pace is great throughout, Theresa Shreffler adds the action at all the right points and I love the description during the fight scenes. Tenderness from Crash is very rare and we are given just enough information to know why, but when he does open up the scenes are very well done. Sora’s Quest totally grabbed me and I can’t wait to read the next in the series.
