Story: This book was a very intense ride. I’m not even sure how to describe it well. Not that I ever really describe the book in my reviews. But I digress. For this particular one, I feel like if I say anything about the book it will kind of spoil something. I think I’ll leave it at this. We follow a girl who seems to hit bad fortune at every turn. Everything she knows as true is not. She must discover the truth for herself with barely any help from anybody who she thought she could trust.
Characters: Katyana is the main character. She’s adopted by the Queen in the kingdom she grew up in. She also shares a powerful bond with the Queen. It’s a first person book, so we mainly only see it from her point of view, but I really enjoyed it. I think it makes the story more intense that way.
Critiques: None that I can think of. Maybe I’d like to see a bit of a back story leading into this book.
Final Thoughts: The cover really doesn’t do this story justice in my opinion. It’s such a wonderful story. It’s very action packed. It may be told in first person, but you get a good feel for all of the characters in this story. You feel an empathy to those who have done everything they can to help Katyana. Well, at least I did. I’d love if this became a series. I’d totally read more book in this world. I’d even love a prequel with a bit of a back story leading up to this book. I’d love to see things that were referenced in the book. Definitely recommend!
