BOOK SPOTLIGHT & REVIEW: Revelation (Book One, Todor Trilogy) By Jenna Newell Hiott

Revelation (Book One, Todor Trilogy)
By Jenna Newell Hiott
Genre: Fantasy, Visionary & Metaphysical Fiction

In a land where magic was created through the spilling of blood, turmoil is looming. Grief and despair flood the land of Todor, and its creators—the omniscient Deis—consider destroying it altogether. That is, until a single spot of joy attracts their attention: the idyllic village of Aerie. Believing in the hope found there, the Deis give Todor one more chance. They place three infants within this village who are unknowingly tasked with ending Todor’s suffering.

As the three chosen ones grow, they discover that their beloved village is a haven of secrets, and nothing is as they believe. Can Gemynd, Soman, and Numa move beyond the secrets of Aerie in order to learn the truth about themselves and the world they thought they knew? With impending war, passionate love, and the heartbreak of separation facing them at every turn, will they do what is required to save Creation?

An imaginative fantasy debut from Jenna Newell Hiott, Revelation combines intrigue, passion, and magic to create a mythic tale like no other. The first book in the epic Todor trilogy, Revelation introduces readers to a unique fantasy realm—intelligent and layered with hidden truths, it will stay with you long after you’ve read the last page.

My Review:

Revelation is a fantastical tale about three special children born on the same night. The trio grow up together and hold a tight bond. Their connection brings them to make challenging decisions about their love and loyalty to each other.

The author called me into this plot and realm with her grand writing style. The fantasy world that she manifested through her imagination is based on joy and equality. I find that to be a remarkable concept which is why I give this book 5 stars.

About the Author

Author, healer, all-around kook, Jenna Newell Hiott boasts of having a limitless imagination, unless it’s naptime. While many of us had an imaginary friend as children, Jenna had an entire imaginary family—complete with a second set of parents and three siblings—all of whom lived in a make-believe world of Jenna’s own creation. One could say she’s been writing fantasy fiction since she was old enough to use words. And she never outgrew it. Out of this hyperactive imagination, and a life steeped in metaphysics, Jenna create the land of Todor: a world of magic, intrigue, and power plays.
