Reviews of Chronicles of Riss

Leave a comment

Recently, my book Chronicles of Riss has been getting some good reviews on Goodreads, and I thought I’d share a few of them with you (I will copy and paste, and link the original page). It currently (as of this posting) has a 4.33-star average rating. You can find all the reviews by clicking the link above.

Reader Molly gives it 5 stars and says:
“Amazing book! The main character Marissa has the best personality. The book talks about her adventures, each chapter is a new and amazing adventure.
It pulled me in from the very first chapter. It so well written and it’s amazing for young adult.
Very easy to read and extremely entertaining”

Reader Uk Eliza gives it 4 stars and says:
“Amazing read!
I couldn’t stop till I finished. Very unique and keeps you wondering what next.
I loved Marissa’s magical adventure and her personality was very refreshing.”

Reader Naj gives it 5 stars and says:
“So I received a digital copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Thanks to the author and BookTasters! So here is my honest review.

This is a great story! It’s about Marisa’s adventure, each chapter tells a great adventure! I haven’t read the first book btw, but I still enjoy this book! it’s a light and fun story!

I don’t have a specific fav character, because all the character has their own unique behavior. even the main character Marisa is not the most likeable character, but she has an interesting way to solve her problem.

I really recommend this book to you who like fantasy stories with a different adventure in each chapter.
This book not really thick, so you can finish it quickly.”

Reader Immortal Writings gives it 4 stars and says:
“Fun. Light. Easy.

Marissa is young and powerful sorceress who is all alone in this world, her only priority is a good meal and bed and for that she will do anything.

This book takes us on a journey of her adventures, they are not inter-related but with every passing adventure we get to know her more. Along with funny sense of humour she is a short-tempered, mischievous girl with a heart of gold.

She has got a bad and dark reputation which she tries to live by proudly, in fact it gives her immense pleasure to be the infamous bandit-trashing, treasure-hunting, mercenary sorceress supreme.

She is ruthless when it comes to punishing the evil or if someone comes between her food. Living with her own rules and laws, young girls can learn a great deal from our courageous sorceress. Her character is well written with some admirable qualities except her temper.

This book is a fun and light read, and I will recommend it to all the young teenage girls.”

Reader Ania gives it 5 stars and says:

“Marissa is a young sorceress supreme who has saved the many people from deadly threats with her courage , bravery and background magic knowledge and she is encouraged by her friend to write down All of the adventures she has had in the past for next generations . So she starts to narrate the stories in the form of 17 missions .

From defeating Diablerio ,an evil Sorceress as she likes to call him who Wants to marry her by force, to chasing after a hidden treasure with the help of the map she bought and thought was of little importance, to defeating interesting monsters throughout the book or saving the world from the God of Evil there is pretty much nth our Sorceress isn’t capable of handling and she takes pride in that . To my suprise she is Perfectly capable of keeping her own against more powerful opponents which is sth to really admire about her .

I really loved how each chapter was about a different mission through a continuous journey.

What made me super emotional though was the ending in which she finished the story by explaining she was needed elsewhere yet she promised us readers that she would narrate more of her past adventures later on. Honestly this didn’t feel like reading a book ,it felt like Marissa was our beloved grandma sitting near the fireplace and us readers around her like children listening to her awesome stories . And I must thank the author for this amazing experience she gifted me with.”

There is also a 5-star rating for Chronicles of Riss on Amazon.

Many thanks to all of the reviewers, and I’m very glad you all enjoyed the book.
