Siena

Summary

Siena can heal any wound with a touch, but because of prejudices against people with supernatural abilities she is treated by her tribe as a thing, not a person. Finally, one day she gains the opportunity to escape and regain her life.

This is a story of a young girl discovering herself. This is a story of a young girl learning that the one thing that makes her so different from everyone else, is also what makes her powerful. This is a story of a young girl growing up.

Writing

The writing style is very simple but I really enjoyed that. I feel like it worked well with the story. The only thing I had issue with was the fact that at this point I don’t really know if Sienna eats meat or not. She says that the death of an animal hurts her and “all lives are valuable”, but she eats dried meat. Then she can’t eat a meat in a stew. Then she eats squirrels that Remi just killed. And the next day she refuses to eat meat. It confused me a lot.

Characters

I think that the author did an amazing job with the arc of Siena. And I absolutely adored Sember (and I know she got her own book!). But I feel like the rest of the characters were lacking depth. Especially Remi. He was the love interest and that was all. I think he had the potential to become an amazing character. There just wasn’t enough pages. Still, I can’t even imagine how hard it must be to develop characters in book that is so short.

Plot

The plot is linear. The story is simple and a little slow, though interesting enough to make you keep turning the pages.

Overall

This is a truly hearwarming story about self-discovery and growing up. It’s short, it’s simple and it’s good. That’s all I could ask for.
