The Labyrinth Wall by Emilyann Girdner

(Image found via Goodreads)

Araina's been isolated for her entire life, struggling to survive. But when a man comes from through a wall in her labyrinth home she finds herself curious and hopeful...hoping for a better existence. She must find allies that she never thought she could or would make in order to get by. Find the official description by Goodreads.

The thing that I enjoyed most about this book is the quick, but informative introduction to the world of the Labyrinth. It's quick but it doesn't skimp on the information so that you can better imagine the world that Araina has been dealing with for her entire life. The descriptions and information don't drag on but at the same time they don't skimp. They allow you to understand the world better and perhaps find some way to understand it and the people within. 

The plot was interesting and trying. As well as the characters. You were never certain that allies would remain allies or those who were allies would be on the right side. It was difficult but interesting. The difficulties you experience in determining things makes things much more intriguing, never certain where you stand. 

Although it's a very unpleasant world. But you see Araina's experiences and her growth, allowing them to see where she comes from and maybe how she changes or is different from others. 

Overall The Labyrinth Wall is a good fantasy novel. If you don't enjoy a lot of romance then this is also the book for you. It's a bit out of my comfort zone but I'm glad I took that chance. And I'm sure you would be as well.
