482441YOU REVIEW: MP!er’s share their thoughts on the ‘mythical epic fantasy’ ‘Rebecca Newton & The Sacred Flame’ by Mario Routi.

Name: Katie Lambert
What genre is the book? 
I would say it would fit into the fantasy/adventure genre.
Describe the plot of the book in a tweet please!
A fantastical exploration into the mythological ideals of good and evil involving an admirable female lead, powerful gods and epic battles fought across different worlds to ours. [MP! Note: It’s a bit more than a tweet – but we’ll let you off!]
What did you think of the book?
I thought this book was excellent in the sense that I couldn’t put it down! It is very much a page turner, and I found myself eager to discover what was happening across these worlds and the characters I had come to care about. I liked the idea that although the book was set across other worlds, the author had still made the characters relevant and likeable; they had character traits that you could easily identify with. (I personally think this is something important when reading a book!)
What was the best bit?
Although I liked the main character Rebecca, and indeed enjoyed the whole book, my favourite parts of the book were those involving the characters Leiko and Felicia, especially the letter he writes to her. But then again I am a sucker for romance, especially romances against the odds.
Anything you didn’t like about the book?
I wasn’t very keen on the cover, I personally didn’t find it very appealing and felt it didn’t represent the story very well.
Would you recommend the book to your friends?
I have already recommended it to several!
Anything else you’d like to tell us about the book?
A very good read and will appeal to fans of books like The Hunger Games and the Divergent series.

Name: Jennifer Lang
What genre is the book? 
A mythical epic fantasy
Describe the plot of the book in a tweet please!
A fight between good and evil and the battles to protect the sacred flame of the white sun.
What did you think of the book?
A bit slow at first but once you get into it and the story unfolds it begins to make more sense.
What was the best bit?
The battle scenes. As you read of all the different characters and their actions you could imagine the scene vividly.
Anything you didn’t like about the book?
The jumping around from past to present time.
Anything else you’d like to tell us about the book?
Don’t skip reading the prologue or you might find it hard to understand what’s going on. Overall a really good read ?

Name: Roisin Sharkey
What genre is the book? 
Personally I think this book was a cross generic (crossed between genres) between romance fantasy and mythology.
Describe the plot of the book in a tweet please!
This book is different in comparison to others if the same genre I think this works well as it leads the book being really captivating
What did you think of the book?
I think this book is one of the best that I’ve read in a while this is because I find the storyline very different and the fact that the book wasn’t entirely in chronological order you were left unable to put the book down.
What was the best bit?
My favourite thing about this book is that the love story doesn’t rule the entire storyline. Yeah it plays a vital part towards the end but besides from that the main focus is the fight between good and evil.
Anything you didn’t like about it?
I don’t see it as being that negative the fact that the book isn’t in chronological order leaving you unable to put it down made it very difficult to get sleep.
Would you recommend the book to your friends?
Yes! I wouldn’t think twice about it.
Anything else you’d like to tell us about the book?
Read it! [MP! Note: Good advice!]

Name: Lauren Matthews
What genre is the book? 
Sci-fi and romance
Describe the plot of the book in a tweet please!
The sacred flame is protected by 4 people, one of those Rebecca Newton. It follows her as she battles against evil and the boy she loves.
What did you think of the book?
I really enjoyed it and the character of Rebecca Newton inspired me. It’s really unique and the messages throughout the book were amazing.
What was the best bit?
Personally, I loved the prologue as Gods and all stuff really intrigues me. I loved the involvement of them.
Anything you didn’t like about it?
I was quite hesitant at first to read it, after the prologue I had to keep putting it down and picking it back up but when I got into it I was hooked.
Would you recommend the book to your friends?
Yes, I was telling my friends about it the other day and she wants to buy a copy.
Anything else you’d like to tell us about the book?
It was a great read and I hope to read more from the author soon.
