Cradle Gift, Patricia Bossano

On the day she was born, Maité received a cradle gift from the faery Nahia—a gift that allows her to travel into other worlds while in a dream state.
At seventeen, Maité’s mortal world is torn apart with the tragic loss of her parents. Uprooted from the only home she’s ever known and isolated in a foreign country, the young woman struggles to make sense of her new life. But the conflict in the realm of Faerie is about to bleed over into Maité’s reality. She finds herself in the middle of an ancient struggle between Nahia and the Beautiful One as they furiously clash for control over the realm. 

Through her Cradle Gift, Maité uncovers the extent of the Faerie Realm’s involvement in her life, and in her quest to come to terms with it, Maité has the help of best friend Emily, and David; a young man whose interest in genetics illuminates possibilities that will change her identity forever.

A short while ago I read and reviewed a marvelous book called Faery Sight which is written by the equally remarkable author, Patricia Bossano. The story is a bewitching one full of breathtaking events and beings that will have the readers mind full of wonder. The story was so radiant that upon finishing it, I immediately started reading the sequel, Cradle Gift. I should mention at this point in my review that although Cradle Gift is book two in the series, it could be read as a stand-alone but if you are a reader who, like me, loves to have the full story and know the ins and outs than do read Faery Sight before because the first book perfectly sets up the landscape for readers to get lost in!

Before I let you lovely readers know more about Cradle Gift, I think it is only right that I share more about the first book Faery Sight! So I have attached a snippet of my review that will introduce you to this wonderful series.

“Faery Sight is an incredible story that will take its readers on a memorable and entertaining journey full of many highs and lows. The reader will be introduced to the seventeen-year-old protagonist of the novel, Celeste. Celeste lives in the faerie realm, and it is all she has ever known, and she is destined to be a human princess, after all her mother raised her to be, however when her mother sadly passes her life changes dramatically, and she will be forced on a new course and a captivating adventure. The reader will follow Celeste as she learns more about herself while she also tries to stop the evil sorceress Arantxa and wow, it makes for thrilling reading book lovers so do not miss out!”

Now, how wonderful does Faery Sight sound?! Cradle Gift is a continuation of the story in Faery Sight and will reintroduce the reader to the protagonist of the novel, Maite. Maite on the day she was born received a very special gift from the faery Nahia, and the gift she was given allows her to travel to other worlds while dreaming and this gift will prove very important. When Maite turns seventeen, her world is torn apart when her parents pass, and she is forced to leave her home and live in a foreign country in which she knows nobody. All while this is happening, the ‘conflict in the realm of Faerie’ is about to haunt Maite reality and Maite will be forced on a mission, and this book lovers is the premise of the sensational Cradle Gift!

The story laced throughout Cradle Gift is pure fantasy and will send fantasy fans wild because the fantasy laced throughout the book is mesmerizing. The journey the reader encounters in Cradle Gift is just as brilliant, If not more brilliant than the journey in book one Faery Sight and I will explain why. I loved the story in Faery Sight, so much so that I awarded it five stars! But Faery Sight is the first book in the series so of course, it features heavily on plot and world development which I must add was dazzling! My point is that in Cradle Gift the world is already established by the incredible author Patricia Bossano, so now Bossano has free reign, she can expand on the book even more and go crazy with plot ideas, characters and magical beings and that is why I feel that I loved Cradle Gift just that bit more because the world is established and the journey thrilling!

Patricia Bossano is seriously an insanely good fantasy writer because she knows what to write to entertain and keep her readers thrilled until the very end. Bossano has many strong writing abilities, but her core talent has to be that of world development. The development of the story in Cradle Gift is breathtaking because the world the reader encounters in the first book is expanded on even more. I admit I was shocked by this because I did not believe it could be because the world was so flawlessly and immaculately developed in book one but Bossano surprised me and expanded on the story even more, and that deserves a round of applause.

As Cradle Gift is a fascinating, mesmerizing and riveting story that should not be missed, I, of course, have to award the stellar read a magical five stars! Be sure to have a read of the preview below and keep an eye out for my review for the next book in the series which is coming soon!
