Revelation: The Todor Trilogy, Book One by Jenna Newell Hiott is the story of three children who not only share a birthday, they also share destinies. Gemynd, Soman, and Numa were born on the same day and become best friends very quickly. Their village of Aerie is a beautiful place where they live an amazing life. However, everything is not as they had hoped and known. There are many secrets and not everyone is as good as thought to be. There is a war waiting to happen and the safety of all creation is dependent on these three children. Can they do it? Will they accept their destiny and embrace their duties? Or will they fall short?
This is a really cool story that encompasses a really cool universe. The characters are well developed and the atmosphere complements the storyline. I felt sorry for Gemynd, Soman, and Numa. They had a huge burden on them but they mostly handled it well. They were very mature characters, so props for that! I was a little surprised by the ending; it was very unpredictable, and I certainly was not expecting it. But I guess it is better this way because it makes me crave book two, which was obviously Hiott’s goal. The cover of the novel is also very good - many times it is a hit and miss for novels in the fantasy genre, but this one nailed it. Certainly a must-read, if you love fantasy. Very enjoyable!
