A kingdom in danger. A royal family divided by greed. A warrior combining strength with magic.
Lisalya Manyeo is the only known empath left in the small seafaring country of Doctsland, so when they are threatened by their much stronger neighbor, Prince Viktor recruits her help. On their way, he trains her to fight.
Working together despite their very obvious differences, they go behind enemy lines to stir up a rebellion against his step-brother’s tyrannical rule. After initial success in recruiting people to join them, they are captured. Lisalya is gravely injured during interrogation, but Viktor nurses her back to life.
A final battle will determine who will rule, but sacrifices have to be made to defeat the enemy.
Will Lisalya and Viktor be able to overcome the odds stacked against them to save their country from certain destruction?
The Last Empath of Doctsland by Leah Putz is an awesome adventure. The world building is absolutely phenomenal. It’s everything I’d hoped for when I picked this book up, and then some! This is the perfect escapist read. Once I was reading, there was no putting this down.
And as beautiful as the world is, the characters are what really make this novel shine. I am so impressed with how vastly unique and realistic they are. I loved following their journey.
Epic battle of good and evil paired with some romance, beautiful writing, and awesome characters, The Last Empath of Doctsland by Leah Putz is easily a five star read that I highly recommend!
*I received a free copy of this book from Damppebbles Blog Tours to review honestly on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.*
Leah Putz has been writing for as long as she can remember. Filling notebooks in school, writing on the scrap paper stolen from her mom’s desk at work, and even producing a short story in 7th grade, distributed to family and friends. She writes almost as often as she reads.
The Last Empath of Doctsland is her first novel. She set out to create a fantasy story featuring the key character types she missed when reading stories in the genre, notably strong women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ characters.
She lives and works in Minnesota, spending her free time either hanging out with her dog Frodo, or travelling as much as possible.
