Blog Tour & Book Review: Ignite the Sun by Hanna Howard

Thank you to TLC Book Tours for the gifted copy.
Title: Ignite the Sun
Author: Hanna Howard
Release Date: August 18th, 2020
Publisher: Blink

Once upon a time, there was something called the sun… In a kingdom ruled by an evil witch, the sun is just part of a legend about light-filled days of old. Luckily for everybody in the kingdom, Siria Nightingale is headed to the heart of the darkness to try and restore the light–or she will lose everything trying.

Sixteen year-old Siria Nightingale has never seen the sun. The light is dangerous, according to Queen Iyzabel, an evil witch who has shrouded the kingdom in shadow.

Siria has always hated the darkness and revels in the stories of the light-filled old days that she hears from her best friend and his grandfather. Besides them, nobody else understands her fascination with the sun, especially not her strict and demanding parents. Siria’s need to please them is greater even than her fear of the dark. So she heads to the royal city–the very center of the darkness–for a chance at a place in Queen Iyzabel’s court.

But what Siria discovers at the Choosing Ball sends her on a quest toward the last vestiges of the sun with a ragtag group of rebels who could help her bring back the Light … or doom the kingdom to shadow forever.

My Review:

Ignite the Sun is an interesting YA fantasy that tells the story of a young girl named Siria Nightingale who lives in a kingdom of darkness and is trying to find the light. The premise is so intriguing and had me flipping through the pages.

I am impressed that this is the author’s debut book. The plot was executed well and well thought out. I liked that the supporting characters because they had a purpose to helping Siria grow throughout the book.

The magical elements of the story were really entertaining. Hanna did a good job of giving the reader enough history to understand the the kingdom and added more insight into the good vs evil trope.

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟

I give Ignite the Sun 4 stars. Hanna’s writing is creative and engaging which made the book fun to read. This book surprised me in a good way. Looking forward to reading more from Hanna.
