King Edric himself.

The Affiliate Pin Board:


A thrilling historical fantasy read, this book was adventurous, romantic and filled with intrigue.

Although I found the first half of the book a bit slow, Linde captured Cyrene's journey with clarity and filled it with excitement, from her Presenting to the budding and forbidden feelings for her King, Cyrene grew each step of the way throughout this book. The storyline was in no way predictable and there were so many factors influencing Cyrene's development as a character, but it was pulled off seamlessly.

I was enthralled by what the unreadable book meant and how it would shape Cyrene's future, and then there was the rift between the Queen and Consort, and the fact that Cyrene seemed to be a pawn in their game, at first anyway. Subplots added extra drama to this story, with murder and mystery, and the latter half of this book was paced well, with a few surprises. I look forward to the next book in this series, as I too wish to find the answers Cyrene so desperately seeks.
