Aofie’s Quest (Gods & Goddesses of Labraid #1) by Angela J. Ford

Genre: Fantasy Adventure

Age category: New Adult

Release Date: March 26, 2021

Blurb:

A warrior princess with a dire future embarks on a perilous quest to regain her fallen kingdom.

Eighteen-year-old Aofie’s Mor is an outcast princess, hiding in the sacred forest of the centaurs. She’s spent her life training for one purpose: to take back her kingdom from the angel of death. 

When she comes of age, the centaurs prepare her to reunite with the humans. However, on the morning of her departure, she learns a horrific truth that leaves her questioning her true identity. 

Frustrated, but taught not to question the will of the gods, Aofie travels deep into perilous lands in search of her birth mother. Along the way she accidentally frees a dangerous goddess, befriends a mysterious iceman, and meets a magic-wielding nymph. 

But threads of betrayal and corruption run deeper than Aofie imagined. As she faces trials and tribulations, she begins to question everything she’s assumed to be true. Caught in the ultimate war between good and evil, Aofie must make a choice about her future. 

Will she have the strength and courage to take back her kingdom? Or will she turn her back on fate and choose her own destiny? 

Welcome to the land of Labraid, a war-torn world where demons rise and the gods and goddesses toy with the desires of humans.

Aofie’s Quest is a dark and exciting fantasy adventure. If you like fierce heroines, treacherous royals, mischievous immortals, wild plot twists and Celtic Mythology, buy Aofie’s Quest today.

My Review:

To describe Aofie's Quest would be kind of challenging. The blurb certainly gives a reader a sense of what's going on, but not entirely.

Aofie's Quest is about more than just an 18-year-old badass princess who's struggling between saving the world (as her mother instructed) or obtaining her own path in life, choosing her own choices.

When I first got into this book, I was surprised. I didn't know it was an NA (New Adult) book.

It wasn't until I read the book that I discovered most of the topics/events handled inside were especially dark.

I swear to god if any haters are gonna say that Aofie isn't as strong as she looks... I'm gonna have to fight you guys. THIS ISN'T YOUR TYPICAL BADASS PRINCESS VIBE, ALRIGHT. We all know that trope. Mother dies, gaining independence, fighting a villain, etc. WELL, THIS IS NOT IT, PEOPLE.

Aofie's Quest is more than that. We finally get a good platonic relationship between two girls. We finally get a slow-burn romance (and not one with only romance, like most fantasy books). One which I don't think anyone was expecting!

Aofie's Quest is jampacked with action, adventure, magic, cliffhangers, and heart. I can't wait to read what's next in this series.

ALL IN ALL, YOU HAVE TO PICK THIS UP! I promise you will not regret it, this book is pretty dang good.
