Imryll's Torment Reviews
Imryll's Torment by Marc R. Micciola is an epic fantasy novel about overcoming inner demons. In a world full of spirits and elves, it is said the Mother Goddess, Naralanis, bestowed upon the elves a gift that protects newborns from the spirits. However, the impossible happened when Imryll was born. A spirit from the forest latched onto her and tormented her day and night. Her father sent her to the Church of Naralanis and put her in the care of the priestess, but this did not stop the spirit that possessed Imryll. Instead, it grew stronger and gained the name, Stepmother. Stepmother disguised her intentions when Imryll was young, but when she got older, Imryll realized the spirit was evil and had to be expelled. And at the age of eighteen, Imryll embarks on a journey to find a way to get rid of Stepmother.
Imryll's Torment is a tale that took me on an emotional roller coaster. Imryll is a remarkable character many will fall in love with and root for. Her will to live and be free was the best part of the story. I loved Marc R. Micciola's writing style. First, he introduces us to this new world of elves and spirits, then dives into Imryll’s story. It helped me understand the situation and why Imryll’s birth was abnormal. The ending was beautifully done and presented another storyline I hope to read soon. Imryll’s story has just begun, and I cannot wait to discover more about this intriguing character.
