This was my first Kristen Ashley story and "wow" it was amazing! She did an wonderful job creating such a unique and fantas..Show More »tical world, where both the plot and characters were well developed. I loved Finnie and Frey! Finnie was something else.
Tillie Hooper's performance ROCKED! She did an amazing job on the different characters, and delivered the witty dialogue flawlessly. I will definitely be on the lookout for more stories narrated by her!
The lead characters were well developed and, well, fiercely strong.I would have appreciated a "warning" of sorts as the author does with her newer boo..Show More »ks that it contained some dark stuff. However, I admit it pulled me in and took me as the reader on the journey with the heroine having to deal with being thrust into a truly foreign situation.I found myself distressed, inspired, challenged, and crying at all the right places throughout the story.
Wow...this was a great addition to the series. This third installment plot started out similar as the first two previous books. Girl wakes up in a d..Show More »ifferent universe, girl doesn't want to fall in love with the hero but ends up falling in love anyway. Cora happens to trade places with a princess that happens to be a bit*h so everyone hates her guts. She brings a curse to the land and her "husband" has to save her and his land happens to be Hawkvaile. This book had a twist where both Cora and Tor are transported back to our word, so it was interesting to see how Tor went about our world. At the end it was a nice set up for the next book. If I had to put them in order according to the first 3 books this would fall second after the Golden Dynasty and Wildest would come in 3rd place. This is well worth the credit. On to Broken Dove!!
Ok so I've been binge listening to this, and the previous book, for 37.. YES 37 hours - and you may ask if I'm bored yet? Well, I can honestly tell y..Show More »ou that I'm not, no way - not even a little bit because Kristen Ashley's Fantasyland series is all kinds of right up my street. From the droolworthy Alpha Heroes, the loving kick ass Heroines, the amazingly described fantastical action-packed plots, the rollercoaster romances, the hot sex and the beautiful words said between two lovers - ALL of it ticked my boxes.
KA weaves a suspense filled colorful story and Tillie Hooper masterfully makes it all come alive with her endless ability of transforming the written word into clear and vivid mental images. Images of a damaged woman and a heartbroken Father of two who both get a second chance to reach for a HEA during a time of grief and confusion.. during a time of compassion, passion and love.. during a time of magic, witches, mayhem and war. A full cast of interesting secondary characters including the sweet, the loveable, the nasty and the downright evil characters. This story was the culmination of the previous 3 books and then it continues the thread as all couples are needed to fight the unpredictable enemy.
Worth a credit? If you want to be transported into an alternate universe where you'll find a fantasy world similar, and yet totally different from our own, hear about a touching and compelling love story and join the battle of good vs. evil - then a million YES'. I was mesmerized from the very first chapter to the last word.. and even then I didn't want to leave.
