The winding streets and narrow alleys of Karolene hide many secrets, and Hitomi is one of them. Orphaned at a young age, Hitomi has learned to hide her magical aptitude and who her parents really were. Most of all, she must conceal her role in the Shadow League, an underground movement working to undermine the powerful and corrupt Arch Mage Wilhelm Blackflame. When the League gets word that Blackflame intends to detain-and execute-a leading political family, Hitomi volunteers to help the family escape. But there are more secrets at play than Hitomi's, and much worse fates than execution. When Hitomi finds herself captured along with her charges, it will take everything she can summon to escape with her life.… (més)

A quick read exciting from beginning to end

This book is so entertaining. It goes fast and exciting. Sometimes it feels a bit too fast but overall it's very good. The writing is filled with wonderful gems that just feel like you're rubbing against exquisite velvet (though sometimes it feels a bit awkward as well).

Hitomi is a very likable and cool character as are those she meets. Even the evil characters are fascinating in a way.

I really suggest picking up this book because it is one of the best indie books that I have come across. ( )

This a well done Juvenile Book - there are better out there, but this book hits all the right spots - plucky teenager alone in the world... a magic system that makes sense, a world that actually feels real, plus an interesting cast of characters. It isn't perfect, at times, the story was too easy - for example, the escape from the dungeon. I especially liked that there is consequences for Hitomi actions.

This is a book I would have been obsessed with as a teenager, and while it is simply written, it is written with thought. ( )

Sunbolt is quite short for a novel - more of a novella length - but it's an excellent YA story about a young thief, Hitomi, who gets involved with the Shadow League, an underground movement working to undermine the corrupt local government. Khanani manages to dodge most of the YA fantasy tropes that can bug me - Hitomi is a strong and capable heroine but she cares about others, isn't particularly bad-ass or broken by traumatic events in her past and there's no love triangle (or really much of a romance aspect at all).

This is a complete story but the ending does leave the reader wanting to know more about Hitomi's past and what's going to happen to her next. A longer (more novel-length) sequel, Memories of Ash was released last year which I am very much looking forward to reading soon. I think there's at least one more book planned in this series after that. ( )

I seem to have mislaid my heart. That's what you get for reading about magical thieves, blood drinkers and soul stealers.

Sunbolt is engaging, well-written, gripping and as full of Promise as its heroine Hitomi. It does just enough world building to hang together and tantalise, focusing instead on showing the strength of character of its young protagonist.

I loved The Bone Knife, and Sunbolt cements Intisar Khanani as an author whose work I won't hesitate to read and recommend. More flailing. ( )
