    Alphabet of Thorn PDF/EPUB ↠ Alphabet of PDF \ alphabet ebok, thorn kindle, Alphabet of ebok, Alphabet of Thorn MOBIThis book has many of the hallmarks of epic fantasy a mysterious orphan a teenage monarch a shifting point of view among several main characters an existential threat from an enemy with utterly unsympathetic motives But unlike most epic fantasy which comes in multi book seuences Alphabet of Thorn comprises only about 300 brief pages Perhaps for that reason it's only moderately successfulNepenthe a teenage transcriptor in the palace library becomes obsessed with a mysterious book whose letters resemble thorns Bourne a mage in training falls in love with Nepenthe and discovers magical powers he didn't know he had Tessera the reluctant ueen tries to grow into her power while Vevay an elderly mage and counselor works to hold things together Meanwhile in Nepenthe's book an ancient emperor and his magelover conuer kingdoms It's a bit much for such a short book especially with chapters alternating among five main characters It's hard to get attached to
