Book Review: Amulet of Wishes by Rita A. Rubin

[Reviews] [Want me to review?] [Want to Offer me a Review?]

I was requested to read this novel and offer a review. As I said before, I don’t mind. I had a feeling going in that I wasn’t going to be the audience at all for it. I am no longer a young adult. I have a young adult. I keep putting down every attempt at the age group.

I made it far enough in to have a legit review, but I did not finish it. Luckily, a good review never offers spoilers.

4 stars

This story has a lot of vibes that are fantasy genre. But it’s also young adult: teen child fighting against his parent while also needing the parent.

The descriptions use both types: conceptual as well as specific, which allows for the reader to easily fill in the unknowns within a room.

I found the opening to be slow as if the first two chapters weren’t really needed. The prologue, on the other hand, was absolutely perfection: unneeded for the story to work, plus distant enough time wise to belong separate, but adding bonus details and knowledge if read.

If you have a teen struggling with various trigger subjects (see the content warning), loves the fantasy genre (with added women and LGBT additions), or just wants a fun adventure novel to read, I’ll suggest this book.
