I just finished Guardian of the Sunshine Bride and really enjoyed it. The author did a great job of giving the reader insight into the characters emotions as they made decisions about duty, love, revenge. I found myself even simpathizing with the barbarian and villian of the story. Another thing I really appreciated was that it was a compelling and clean romance. I love having books on my bookshelf that I can look forward to enjoying again with my kids as they get older. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone that enjoys fantasy, action, a little romance and magic with a twist.
This book was great. It was a lovely mix with drama, romance, and some of my favorite tropes. I would recommend this book to anyone! The storyline was nice and honestly who can resist a good love story? Overall, amazing book, good storyline, go read it now!
This book drew me in and never let go. I loved the main characters and the tension created between their sense of duty and their love. The adventure was fast-paced. The story wasn't finished, but had a satisfying for now ending. Although I rarely read fantasy, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I read the book through KU.
This is the first book in a series, and like other books in a series you will seriously be left hanging. Honestly, I'm not a fan of when that happens. I try to avoid starting a series that isn't complete. Too late now. A sweeping saga that spans several kingdoms and moves fairly quickly. I really liked the growth in the main characters and felt incredibly invested in a happily ever after. A bit confusing in the beginning, but eventually I was hooked.
I had a really hard time getting into this book... At first I was excited about the story with the first chapter of the kids making their way across the icy river. However then it grew to gruesome, and random story lines, and I couldn't admire or connect with any of the characters. I pushed on but still just couldn't get into it. I hate giving low reviews because I know how hard the author worked to bring this book about. But it wasn't for me.
This book was such a great read! The story didn't drag but it also didn't move too fast. However, I do wish the book never ended because it was such a good story. But never fear, the story is not over! Can't wait to read the next book. I also really like the cover. The characters are diverse and interesting. Kathleen and Jared are of course my favorite, and I loved how their story developed. The idea that this is Jane Austen meets Lord of the Rings seemed pretty fitting to me. A good blend of action, romance, humor, and good heroes and villains.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was amazing that this captivating adventure began as bedtime stories for the author’s children. I was drawn to keep reading until the very end and can not wait for the second novel in the series. I have recommended this book to family and friends.
Great blend of adventure and romance. I was totally absorbed in the characters' struggles to reconcile their feelings with their sense of responsibility. I appreciate getting to see into the hearts and minds of characters with high morals. I agree with the reviewer who said this is movie material!
