Welcome to Fantasy Friday, a weekly review of books I absolutely loved and hope you will too!
A courageous noblewoman. A mysterious horseman. A war that may destroy them both…
As the king’s niece, Shalyrie can’t wait to explore her kingdom’s colonies with her uncle. But when she’s badly injured in a savage raid and abducted by mysterious masked horsemen, she’s stunned when her captors heal her wounds. As she adjusts her preconceptions, a terrifying attempt on her life reveals that her own people are trying to kill her.
Kalleck expects to die fighting a hopeless war like his father before him. While he helps Shalyrie piece together clues behind the assassination attempt, her very presence escalates tension between the kingdom and the colony. With time running out, Kalleck knows he must act quickly to prevent innocent bloodshed, yet Shalyrie might be the only one who can end the war.
Can two enemies join forces to put an end to a devastating war?
Why I love this book: Like Sky in the Deep by Adrienne Young, this is another awesome, very topical and important book in this day and age where people are taught to hate others just because they are a different skin color, culture, religion, whatever. The heroine of this wonderful tale discovers the lies she was raised with and embraces instead the truth. Don’t want to spoil it anymore, but everyone should read this and learn from it. I loved and highly recommend both tales. I am looking forward to A.J.’s next book which will be coming soon! Check out her website.
And while you are it, get Sky in the Deep, too!, if you haven’t already. Don’t you love that cover?
Have you read these books? What did you think?
