Review of Birthright Bestowed
Ilona the Hun trilogy
Written by Author Erika M. Szabo
Reviewed by R. Murry
Fantasy means a product of the imagination. “Everything is possible if we take into account the fact that we’re True Huns,” is a statement made by one of the characters of this magical contemporary fantasy. This belief is there when a child is taught to believe in oneself no matter the culture.
Ilona the Hun, the main character of this somewhat mind awakening novel, comes of age at the ripe old age of twenty nine. Why twenty nine? That is the age a Hun becomes of age, an ancient decision. She awakens to the fact that she has powers a normal human from other cultures don’t have.
As a medical doctor, Ilona’s journey begins for the reader. Ms. Szabo, using sometimes comical prose, has our protagonist explain her history, thoughts, feelings, and reactions to events around her, which all relate to her being a True Hun, a true blood descendant of the Huns who at one time ruled the world.
At this point in her story, her world becomes an overpowering mystical one if one is to rule out the fact that the events are seen by humans. Because the stand biers are not Huns, they don’t see or react to the situations as an insider – they see the conclusions as miraculous. Only Ilona and her inner circle understand what has transpired.
This all leads to interesting turns of events that will keep the reader wanting to know what comes next. Well, you’ll have to read Book 2 to see if Ilona’s powers develop, if her love affair continues, if death is around the corner, and if dreams come true.
Birthright Bestowed is a well written lead book for a trilogy that I recommend for Romantics and Mystic readers alike. Or, if you’re a non-believer, it’s a journey to enjoy.
