I from PR&aTR and received no compensation for this review. I give the book 4 fangs.
The main character Tab Bennett’s life is quiet, uncomplicated. She has a fiancée and a job she likes in the local bank. But her sisters’ disappearance brings hidden secrets into the light, now her life consists of long hidden secrets of her lineage and birth, of a destiny she can’t avoid. Now “normal” means juggling her fiancé’s broken heart and a handsome prince’s irresistible advances ( yes it gets very complicated in her love life) while trying to work out who is plotting to kill her.
As she struggles with finding out she’s not human but actually an Elvish princess.
That the family she thought she had were actually sent to keep her safe, that the enemy are willing to kill to get to her.
Have you ever read a book, that niggles at you, that you are not completely sure what it is, but something just feels off? Now as I sit here thinking of what to write. I wonder why such things were kept from her… They should have at least told her and trained her up when her “sisters” started going missing. I don’t want to say more as it would spoil it for new readers.
When trying to pick a category for this book, it was a bit stuck In between Young Adult, and New Adult… Cut out the sex scenes and it would sit neatly in Young Adult but because the author has spiced it up it can’t But Tab’s demeanour is too childish to me, at 20 why would she not question why her fiancée wouldn’t get hot and heavy with her? Why would she not demand more information when her “family” want to lie and cover up the deaths.
But I did enjoy this story, there is a lot happening, it’s written well, but this is a trilogy ( again! – anyone else fed up with serial books?)
It’s got intrigue and a few twists in it and I am interested to see where the author will take Tab next.
Please note… From research this book has been previously released under a different title and I think that there should be a disclaimer plainly stated so readers are aware.
There is nothing more frustrating than buying a book previously purchased and read.
