Arianna has only ever dreamed of winning her freedom from the Four Corners—a cold and cruel city where all the children of the world are kept, each with an opportunity to earn their citizenship upon their seventeenth year. Just months away from her ultimate battle, she is certain that her notable skills as a warrior-slave will give her an edge during the annual Free Falls Festivals: Free for the slaves who earn their citizenship; Falls for the ones who die.
But Arianna’s talent with a sword cannot outmaneuver the burning curiosities of her heart, leading her to reveal a shocking secret about King Devlindor and his long-standing reign as High King of Olleb-Yelfra.
The world as she knows it is a lie, its true spellbinding history exploited and suppressed under centuries of deceitful acts.
Her world turned upside down with new, unfathomable knowledge, Arianna must make a choice that could change her life forever—ignore the truth and continue following the path laid out for her since birth or break free from her chains and carve her own way… if she can survive.
Immerse yourself in this addictive YA Epic Fantasy adventure as Arianna is thrust on a thrilling journey to uncover magic and earn her right to freedom.
Belvedor and the Four Corners is a recipient of the 2017 Indie B.R.A.G. Medallion Award.
Belvedor and the Four Corners by Ashleigh Bello i definitely my kind of read! This is a really wonderfully written fantasy, about a magical world filled with oppression. It reminds me a bit of the dystopian genre, while being world built like a fantasy. Awesome.
I absolutely loved the characters and the world building. Everything was so vivid, and felt so real, it was easy for me to get lost in the story. I had a hard time setting this down.
I cannot wait to read more from this author. Consider me a new fan. Highly recommended!
