On her 21st birthday, Cyra is abducted and whisked away to another galaxy and planet called Solius, where she finds out she was born. Solius though is dying, and as she is its rightful Reina, their Queen for all intents and purposes, it’s up to her to figure out the why and how to stop it. With more questions than answers, Cyra is taken on the adventure of a lifetime where she might find more than she bargained for.
In her magical debut, The Divine Oblivion carves out its spot in the galaxy and fantasy/romance/sci-fi genres. Clare Archer has woven a spectacular story that is quickly devoured, but the slow burn of it lets you savor every detail.
The world, or I should say galaxy, building Archer has done here is fantastic and the magic system is something that I haven’t read before. It also features some of the readers’ favorite tropes like found family, a prophetic chosen one, fated mates, arranged marriage, and more. The characters are alright, though Cyra does seem a bit immature – she feels more like a mid-to-late teen than an early adult, but it gives Archer an excellent way to show how Cyra matures as the story goes on.
It does end on a cliffhanger, which is very promising for at least a sequel that drops jaws and leaves you wanting to know what happens next.
Overall, this was an enthralling story that makes readers want more.
Thank you to Clare Archer and R&R Book Tours for an e-ARC of the book to read and review.
