Book Tour/Review: Bravely by Maggie Stiefvater

Book Details

Format: Hardcover, 367 pages
Publication: May 3rd 2022 by Disney Press
Synopsis: Merida goes on an all-new, life-changing adventure in this original YA novel set several years after the close of Brave!
What if you had one year to save everything you loved?
ONE PRINCESS. Merida of DunBroch needs a change. She loves her family—jovial King Fergus, proper Queen Elinor, the mischievous triplets— and her peaceful kingdom. But she’s frustrated by its sluggishness; each day, the same. Merida longs for adventure, purpose, challenge – maybe even, someday, love.
TWO GODS. But the fiery Princess never expects her disquiet to manifest by way of Feradach, an uncanny supernatural being tasked with rooting out rot and stagnation, who appears in DunBroch on Christmas Eve with the intent to demolish the realm – and everyone within. Only the intervention of the Cailleach, an ancient entity of creation, gives Merida a shred of hope: convince her family to change within the year – or suffer the eternal consequences.
THREE VOYAGES. Under the watchful eyes of the gods, Merida leads a series of epic journeys to kingdoms near and far in an attempt to inspire revolution within her family. But in her efforts to save those she loves from ruin, has Merida lost sight of the Clan member grown most stagnant of all – herself?

My Thoughts

Rating: ★★★★☆
I don’t remember much from the film, so I probably should’ve rewatched it before I read this one. I was a bit confused and lost at times, but it was still a very enjoyable read. It was a fun one for sure.
I’ve wanted to read a book by Stiefvater for a while, and I’ll definitely be reading more in the future. I loved her writing style; it was so easy to get lost in this book. Everything was described in a way that helped me focus and picture everything.
I received a gifted copy of this book via Rockstar Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
