    One thought on “Clara”

    1. Linton’s book follows the journey of Clara, a seemingly ordinary child to whom life has been anything but kind. Having being sold into slavery, Clara loses the ability to talk, her voice forced deep inside of her by the horrors she suffered at the hands of the slavers. Bought by a wealthy master, Clara falls into a dreary life working in the castle kitchens, never venturing further than the kitchen garden. She is known by no name and those around her see her as nothing more than a mute slave g [...]

    2. Book Review originally published here: iheartreading/book-touClara’s life could be described in one word so far: tough. She was sold into slavery as a child, by a mother who took her in as an orphan. She works a a maid in the castle kitchens, rendered mute by the horrors life threw at her. Most people ignore her, thinking of her as nothing more than a servant, until she prevents a murder by using a gift she’s never told anyone about – she has visions of the future. By preventing the murder [...]

    3. I received Clara's Return in exchange for an honest review and started reading it without realizing at first that I had book 2 of a series. (I guess the name should have been a clue.) When I got past the prequel into the first chapter, I realized from the large amount of summary that I had jumped into the middle of a series by mistake. So I went back and started on the first book, simply called Clara.There's a strong concept at the center of the story. Clara, who was sold into slavery to pay off [...]

    4. This book review is “Clara” by Suzanna J. Linton.One learns about our main character, Clara, starting from a young age where through a cruel fate of events is sold into slavery. She is bought by a wealthy owner who places her in the kitchen to work and help the cook. It is here we learn she has lost the ability to speak. Not knowing her name she is attached to the name of Mouse.It doesn’t take long for her true potential to shine through as a vision fills her mind about a threat to her mas [...]

    5. Clara is a young girl of about 9 or 10 years of age in what makes me think medieval times in a world other than our own. From the clothes they wear, to the descriptions you read of life around her. She meets a young man from a gypsy caravan one day when she is curious about the caravan and is sitting there watching. His name is Emmerich. He is heading to see his grandmother who is making sleeping tonics and Clara goes with him, meeting Mara. After she goes home, what happens to her? Her mother d [...]

    6. Clara is a young girl of ten when we first meet her, enjoying her last day of freedom although she doesn't realise that. Her life is about to change for the worst, but there is also a spark of hope in the form of Emmerich, a gypsy boy she meets. Clara loses many things, including her voice, during her trials and tribulations but it looks like her life is changing for the better when she meets Emmerich again. Is everything as it seems, or has Emmerich changed in ways too many to be ignored?This i [...]

    7. Clara's journey is a difficult one. She goes from carefree child to slave with horrifying years of abuse. Her visions give her a path to freedom but bring a different kind of pain and risk to her life. It is a really enjoyable fantasy story with medieval elements and lots of magic. I found myself very caught up in the story. Clara is so abused that she loses her voice and becomes a mute. Slaves have no names in this cruel world. I was very sad for much of the story as I felt her pain and wanted [...]

    8. This shining new voice in fantasy fiction was, to me, reminiscent of one of my favourite fantasy authors; Juliet Marillier, and I am eagerly awaiting the next instalment of Clara's, the protagonist's adventures. Even though Clara has survived horrible experiences like slavery she remains at heart, a feisty, strong young woman. With two handsome men interested in her and freed from slavery things should be looking up Except for a murderous wizard King bent on ruling and remaking the world and det [...]

    9. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. I so enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading the next in the series. Clara is such an amazing character. She overcomes so much and becomes such a powerful force to be reckoned with. I loved that no matter what came her way, she always does what she feels is right in her heart and fights for those she loves. The reader will find themselves dragged into this world created by Linton and captured by this action packed story and w [...]

    10. The adventure and the storyline was incredible. I was transported to a magical realm. I thought the characters each played their part well and I fell in love with Clara and Emmerich.I thought everything was done well except for making me feel a little more emotion with the characters. When a major event took place, I didn't get drawn in as much as I would have liked. Other than that, it still was done well, and I can't wait to read the next book to see how the cliffhanger turns out. Provided by [...]

    11. This book made me feel like a kid again; I became completely absorbed in the story, and whenever I had to put it down and go do something else, I was very bitter. I love medieval fantasy novels, and was so pleased to find this one. The world Linton built was fantastic, and she did an incredible job naturally embedding important and interesting details into the narrative.The characters were quite dynamic too, and I thought that the romantic element was done so well; it was compelling, but it didn [...]

    12. This book grabbed me from the start to the finish. I am not a fan of medieval books but I really enjoyed the characters and the story line of this one. I love that Clara stays strong and true and even in the end doesn't give up on finding out who she is and where she comes from. This is the first I have read from this writer but this book has me running to the 2nd book of the series. I can't wait to read more!

    13. I find CLARA an easy read since this is the first fantasy novel I read. I'm also glad that it is my first one since the darkness of the story is mild, the sequences are easy to follow, and the characters have good credibility on how they revealed themselves. Also, Linton has put in great lines in there, which apply just the same to real-life situations.You can find my review on this book in detail on my blog: jkcsparklevelblogs/book

    14. I found this book to be a little choppy in areas; that being said, it was overall a wonderful story. The characters were well-written and the storyline engaging. Clara was a heroine you could identify with even while the circumstances were definitely unique. I would definitely recommend this novel. .

    16. This book captivates you from beginning to end. It was a great story. It's about a girl and how life has treated her since she was a little girl. Set in times with Kings and wizards. A book that is amazing and is a Must read!
