Publisher's Summary

A completely gripping fantasy romance

"I was born to fly," I told my brothers. But it isn’t true. I was born to be a pawn in the great game of royal houses, married to someone - anyone - my family deems suitable. If I’m lucky, he’ll be my own age and bearable. If I’m very lucky, he’ll be someone who understands my need to fight, and to fly....

Bel, born to nobility, would do anything to spend her days alongside her brothers - soaring through the heavens in her beloved flyer. She’s faster than any of them, but she knows her days in the skies are numbered.

When a surprise attack on the palace lands Bel’s father on the throne, her life is forever changed. In order to secure her father’s empire, Bel must travel to a distant land to marry Conleith, the recently widowed young ruler.

But Bel’s new home is less than welcoming. Compared to the refined ladies at court, Bel seems like a wild woman, and assassination attempts, treason, and mystery threaten her at every turn. With a growing attraction to Con, her life is further complicated by the attentive leader of her bodyguard - a warrior called Shae whom she has loved since childhood....

A heart-stoppingly magical new novel that will keep you up late at night. Perfect for fans of The Selection, Bella Forrest, and Sarah J. Maas.

Ahhhhhh!!!!!! Soooooo goood!!!!!!!!!!

Ok. Ok. Ok. Just finished it. Composing thoughts. Ahhhh!!!!! Fantastic world building, strong female protagonist, perfectly wrought romance. This rear of this review contains spoilers!!!!!









Pros: strong female protagonist (I don’t want to spoil anything so skip this next sentence - she’s does quite a bit of the reaching herself. So really really enjoyed the strong female lead. No helpless damsels in distress here!
Super well developed characters (mostly) and incredibly lovable main character.

Romance is exquisite and just right not overwrought or outlandish.

World building is fantastic! Spoilers: kind of reminds me of a super feminine version of Enders Game in terms of the universe but add court intrigue and dresses instead of war games. Really really really great world building.

Agh!!! Can not wait for the next one. Super super loved this. Actually, even if there wasn’t another book, the ending was super well tied and I could leave the world here happily.

Cons: towards the end, there is a lot of telling not showing. And honestly, I understand why. But I would have rather the book was longer and actually seen those portions of the book than just be told they happened. I wouldn’t have minded going with Bell on raids instead of just being told they happened. I would have wanted to spend more time under ground, learning more about ancient antheis. Maybe dug down more into that mystery.

But other than that I JUST LOVED IT! And the narrator was great too. Sometimes she pronounces a few words real funny but I do love her voice. It’s different and soothing and mesmerizing. Grade A stuff!!!

Enchanted

I enjoyed this book because it is a book that has a grown up story line but it is still decent enough to let my 12 yr old daughter read.
