I received a copy from the author, In exchange for an honest review Kemla was an okay character, but I didn t love her.This started out pretty good, but I started to feel slightly bored in the middle, and the story couldn t get my interest back fully It felt like a really quick read though, so it wasn t that bad thankfully.Overall, An okay read.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review I read this book in one day not because it was so good I couldn t put it down, but because it was a fast book to read It had short chapters and wasn t very long I found multiple spelling and incorrect words errors and the ending to the book was a disappointment for me I liked Kemla and Leon s back and forth conversations whether they were said out loud or in their minds I found Kemla to be a likeable character in her own way, sometimes she g [...]
I received a copy of this book in return for an honest review.This book was a very fast read, though I had a bit of trouble getting into it I felt like the plot wasn t made clear, which left me confused at the end The characters were alright, though they could have been fleshed out I didn t ache for these characters like I do in other books I don t know that I would continue with the series, but it wasn t a terrible read I just didn t really get what the whole point was What was Leon s purpose [...]
I received a copy from the author, in exchange for an honest review Actual Rating 3.15 This was a good read I liked the characters I loved the world building I thought the story was interesting The magic and the romance aspect were good too I liked Leon and Kemla together The book started off good However, there were parts where I was bored As the story progressed, the story did pick up a little bit , but it was not as good as the first few chapters I thought the ending lacked a bit for me Overa [...]
I log in and read the new chapter of this every week It s down as YA but I d call this Chick Lit There s romance and love and danger, all things I love in a story.There are bonus stories, so short stories from other peoples point of views, and I love those too The world is so three dimensional and it just keeps getting deeper and better.I hope this series never ends.
Originally posted here alwayslostinbooks.wordpressAfter reading the book, I was surprised to find that anyone can read this book online through Cassandra Webb s blog, Life Family Magic yet she gave me a copy directly from This does not, however, affect my review in anyway But I m truly grateful for it because I certainly enjoyed the book.The book definitely needs proofreading there were just too many typos But once you look past all of those, the story was definitely entertaining I honestly didn [...]

I received this in exchange for an honest review.I am surprised by Life , a story with exciting mystery adventure, I wasn t expecting it to be that great, not something I thought I would be able to get into.The story is about Kemla s journey as a captive slave where she tries to save her siblings who got captured by slave trader She was successful in saving them but got herself captured Time goes on she learns about herself her abilities.The interesting part was the silence communication betwee [...]
I received a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review One thing that I really liked about this book was Kemla s bond with Lii This was nice for me because of the bond I have with my own horses Maybe different, but same concept I wish there had been a bit explanation about this earlier in the novel The world building was the main thing that was lacking for me The beginning was rather confusing and I didn t feel like their was enough explanation about the world and magic until near the [...]
In Kemla Life, we are introduced to Kemla, a young girl who is already a skilled hunter She lives a relative quiet life with her mother and younger siblings until she ventures out too far one day and is captured by a group of slave traders I was glued to her tale from beginning to end, wondering if and how she would escape from her captors What I found especially intriguing was how she could communicate using only her mind with her trusted horse, Lii, and a young trader named Leon Rugged and str [...]
I was very pleasantly surprised with the chapter of this book I read, and am looking forward to the opportunity to read the rest of it LIFE, book one in the Kemla Trilogy by Cassandra Webb is a great story The plot from what I ve seen so far is well thought out, and exciting The writing is seeing as Cassandra has neither editor nor a lot of time a chapter is released each week There were quite a few spelling grammatical mistakes, but I think that comes with the territory Reading an un edited boo [...]
I received this book on a read to review basis, but this does not affect my review.This story was very original and interesting The only reason I gave it four stars was because it was slightly slow for my taste This is a quick read that I would recommend It follows Kemla who has been captured by slave traders The take her across country to be sold One of her captives, Leon, seems to be kinder than the rest and also possesses magic This confuses Kemla and intrigues her at the same time Thoughts l [...]
Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to author Cassandra Webb This story started out okay, but I lost interest I couldn t connect with the main character, and I got to the point where I didn t care what happened to her at all There wasn t anything horribly wrong with this book, and I think that other people might enjoy it, but I think this was probably a case of wrong book, wrong person.6 out of 10
I receved a copy from the author Thank you Cassandra Webb This book was a very short book I read it on like 4 hours But, it was a very good 4 hours I truly felt sorry for her The writing was so good, I felt like I was the one taken away It s unclear to me if her and Leon were developing a romantic relationship but a guess I ll find out in the second one This book deals with heavy stuff Rape Whiping Ect Just to warn parents of teens I highly recommend this book.
I love this book Cassandra Webb is an amazing writer, and this novel is definitely worth the read Life, as well as her other books, are available on amagicalsaga, but I definitely prefer to buy them.Kemla is a fantastic main character She s witty and sarcastic, but level headed and amazing Experiencing her life through reading is an amazing adventure, and riding along on her magic horse Lii just adds to the fun I won t spoil the book too much, but it s definitely worth checking out.
I was given a copy from the author in exchange for a honest review I did find myself finding it hard to connect to any of the characters and at times i found myself bored I did love the world building and the magic but i think it was just the wrong time for me to read this book
Amazingly entertaining, if I do say so myself A story that potentially never ends.

I read the complete book, now on I note some reviews speak of chapter by chapter on a website Kemla is the lead character in this fast moving story Kemla is independent, competent, she can fight, and she has a desire to help others But she is also vulnerable It is this combination of hero with vulnerability that make the best characters I became caught up in her adventures very quickly, and very much enjoyed this story in spite of its flaws The story was written in present tense, which gives it [...]
My daughter read this book, she s 14 and isn t allowed any internet accounts so here I am learning how to use for her.Here s her review At first all I wanted to say is that this book is too good for words But dad made me think of to say Its fast and funny, has a few scary bits which I liked, it s god a horse who has magic I loved all the characters, well I didn t love the slave traders, but I did love everyone else Adah was fun, I hope we get to meet him again in another book Kemla was the best [...]
This review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon Please head there for in depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely schedule.Kemia is a caring, if somewhat unexperienced young woman At 16, she seems like she still has a child s imagination, but the ability to hear others thoughts sets her apart from most of her adopted family Faced with the threat of starvation if she doesn t hunt and go to the town, the other option might be dreaded marriage.Read on for my review, scroll on [...]
So this 17 year old has to choose, save her own ass or save her sisters she saves her sisters and spends the length od the novel trying to escape from slave traders.Mysteriously the powerful mage in the group keeps helping her, only to foil her escape attempts until the very end.I enjoyed their relationship, there s some heat but its not the focus of the story.I also really enjoyed the first person narrative, and the most recent version if very much up to a professional clean spelling etc standa [...]
