{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} Birth - By Donna Russo Morin



==========================

BIRTH - By Donna Russo Morin
(Once, Upon a New Time, #1)
Publication date: February 15th 2019
Genres: Adult, Fantasy


New worlds don’t appear. They are born from the labor of those who envision them. 
Count Witon has grown weary of the constant war between the races. Together with his wife Belamay, and Persky – first of a rare Human / Elf breed – Witon plans to create a new society: a utopia for anyone who longs for peaceful coexistence. 
They recruit pilgrims from every city and species; most to success, some to failure. Together, they set off to a small, yet promising island, found by chance in the middle of the churning ocean. 
But the journey there is fraught with challenges, and none of them is as dire as the one they face once they reach their destination. Will they have the strength and determination to give Birth to this New Time? 
Once, Upon A New Time is a medieval fantasy with a double-edged sword: one of blood, the other of lust.

Review
 
I LOVED THIS!
 
If anyone who truly knows me, knows how much I love anything that is blends races together, whether that be human, elf, fae, shifter, etc, there is just such an element of unknown that feeds into their story line & creates such depth in a character. So when I read the synopsis for Birth it was Persky who grabbed my attention and had me convinced this was going to be an amazing read!
 
Immediately from the gate I was drawn in, this world, these creators are so intriguing, they are ever trying to change & create a "perfect" place....but who's idea of perfect? Their journey throughout the majority of the book is what makes it so different, because when you read anything that has different specifies, or races, there are always stereo types that will immediately come to mind from previous novels we've read. Breaking these are often hard, but Donna was able to ease this bridge and beautifully intertwine their lives, love interests and common goals.
 
Though the 2nd book in the series doesn't have a release date yet, I know that the author has amazing things in story. If she's able to keep up this amazing world dynamic and character development then I'm prepared to have my mind blown for the rest of the series!
 
 
5/5
