Frankly speaking, I chose "The Waterfall Traveler" based on its cover only. From the cover, I thought that Book would be a light read for kids. But it proved me wrong completely. The book was more than a kids genre.
All eighteen-year-old Ri wants is to cure her adoptive father Samuel from his hallucination-inducing illness. Everyone in her village tells her it's impossible. But when she meets two newcomers in the forest—a gruff rogue with a vendetta against the gods and a charming fugitive with the power to travel through water—she'll be torn away from Samuel and swept across the sea to an oppressed city governed by a ruthless tyrant. Once there, she'll not only have to confront Samuel's unlawful past, but a vicious evil that threatens all mankind.In this tale of bravery, friendship, and unexpected love, Ri must discover her own strength to save the men she cares for.
'The Waterfall Traveller" is a story in a fantasy world. This world was created and maintained by three God-siblings. A girl name Ri, adopted by a guy called Samuel, spent all her childhood in her village with Samuel. They lived a life of the outcast. One fine day, Ri ventured into the wild. She didn't know what awaited her into wild. Things changed forever after that. She got separated from Samuel because she got attacked by strange wild animals. She was saved by a stranger named Bryce. Through Bryce, Ri met more people and made friends. Together they fought a danger that lurks in their world.
Wild animals with strange powers are attacking various villages in their world. It is taking a toll on human life. Ri and her friends decided to destroy that danger once and for all. Though it is a long book, but pace and storyline have made sure that reader will stick to it to the last page. Overall very nice book.
