    " This is an amazing book. It is so unique and I just absolutely love it! I can't wait to read the second book in the resurrection of magic trilogy, 'Sacred Scars' "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaylie | 2/3/2014

    " Beautifully written and intriguing story...but I have to say, the cursing and swearing seemed out of place in a fantasy-type story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leah Lucci | 1/11/2014

    " Depressing, but fascinating. Off to the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aileen Shara | 12/22/2013

    " Okay...but more like 2.5 than three stars. It took too long for me to get into the story and then I didn't really get attached to many of the characters. Maybe more of a review to come. Maybe not. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hatice | 12/9/2013

    " Wow, this book was amazing to read. At first, I didn't understand what was going on until a little bit later. But overall it was a great book! I can't wait to read the second. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 12/6/2013

    " Love, LOVE the complexity! Traveling between the two distinct timelines and trying to put the pieces together is a wonderful twist! I can't wait to see how it turns out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 12/3/2013

    " I couldn't put this book down once I started it. This book was truly unforgettable. The two storylines seem to blend seamlessly together and the only drawback to this book is the fact that it ends in a cliffhanger. I need to get my hands on the next book in the series as soon as possible! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia Dempsey | 11/2/2013

    " The biggest negitive for this book...it was crude. The way it was written I could have sworn it was written by a man... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Savannah Weaver | 10/24/2013

    " Such a cliffhanger! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jayla | 10/10/2013

    " A really unique story without your typical kind of wizards or magic. I especially loved reading from Hahp's point of view. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra Stiles | 10/10/2013

    " This was a fabulous book. It was two stories in one but they entertwined. I loved the way the reader was show the beginning and future of the plot. I can't wait for the next one in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tracie | 8/7/2013

    " Told in alternating chapters by two very different characters this book left me curious. Unfortunately I probably won't be interested or even remember enough of the details by the time the sequels come out. A dark fantasy I will recommend only to those with the patience/willingness to wait for more. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liz Syner | 3/2/2013

    " Could not get past the first 4 pages. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cankles McNurple | 12/30/2012

    " unique take on magic and wizard apprenticeship. story progressed too slowly. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gem | 11/25/2012

    " the children slowly starving to death, in detail wasn't needed. it started really slow and didn't get any better after that "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Monica Millard | 6/1/2012

    " I love this book. Kathleen Duey is an amazing author and a wonderful person! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 11/20/2011

    " Kathleen Duey is a natural storyteller; I enjoyed every word. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa Jaye | 10/26/2011

    " Loved this book. It drew me in from the very first paragraph. There's alot of great reviews/synopsis online, so I'll just add that I enjoyed the book enough to go out and buy my own copy (copy I was reading was library) plus book two. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 9/20/2011

    " I also don't know what the title refers to, but it's a compelling story, darkly compelling... First in a trilogy, the two tales drop off more abruptly any series I've read - we just have to wait for the sequel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penny | 7/30/2011

    " This series is very addictive. My mind reels with the possibilities of how it will all work out in the end. Can't wait for the next one to come out. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanette | 5/21/2011

    " This book will flow right into the second installment. A very interesting mix of characters. It gave me lots to think about. I am still puzzled by some of the story and working out the chronological series of events. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Aira | 5/12/2011

    " Not my cup of tea. At all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Twinkle | 4/20/2011

    " Wow, this book was amazing to read. At first, I didn't understand what was going on until a little bit later. But overall it was a great book! I can't wait to read the second. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie | 4/7/2011

    " Liked this very much. Jumping between the two stories was fun, and built up nicely. Answering questions along the way... entertaining read all of the way! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Casey | 3/4/2011

    " An interesting first book, although the ending made it feel like it was not an entire story in itself, but just a precursor to the next book. I will be interested to read the next and see if this book makes more sense. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teagan | 2/26/2011

    " Skin Hunger was an amazing book. it showed the dark side of magic and was actually disturbing at some parts. it was a bit confusing how the story changed between Hahp and Sadima but thats partially what i liked about it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carmen | 1/26/2011

    " An amazingly cruel and wondeful magic book. "
