Summary of the Book:
Bel would do anything to spend her days alongside her best friend and childhood sweetheart Shae – training in the art of Vairian combat, hoping to some day live up to the legacy left by the mother she lost as a child.
But when a mysterious and deadly attack on the capital lands Bel’s father unexpectedly on the throne, her life is forever changed. In order to secure her father’s new empire, Bel is forced to travel to the distant land of Anthaeus to marry its recently widowed ruler, Conleith.
For any other young woman the chance to become royalty would be a dream come true, but for Bel, the rigidity of court life is like a prison sentence. And while Conleith is an unexpectedly intriguing – and attractive – puzzle… could she ever love him when it would mean turning her back on her feelings for Shae, her first love and last connection to home?
Then a brutal assassination attempt nearly takes her life, and Bel learns that there’s more on the line than just her happiness. Is it the same faceless enemy who attacked her homeland and, with dangers around every corner, who in the palace can she trust?
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. It is a very engaging fantasy novel. The characters are very amazing and the setting is marvelously detailed. I felt like I was long for the ride with Bel through it all. She has to make a lot of decisions between loyalty to her heart, her homeland and the alliance that she has been sent to form. It takes a close call with death to make her rethink what she has to do. If you want to know what she decides or how it goes grab a copy for yourself. I am waiting for book 2.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
