I want to hike on the paths, too. I want to smell everything, to taste everything, to see the birds, and the trees. All of it. In my wildest dreams I couldn’t have imagined a place like this. I feel like I’ve been caged all my life and now I’m finally free.
I received a free review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Holy craggin crat! This is the first book of Susan Grant that I have ever read. And I should say, I am so glad I read this book.
I love this book. I love everything of this book. The idea behind this book, the execution of the idea, the characters, the story-line. Everything is blended perfectly.
Jemm Aves is a woman who’s in need of money which is why she disguised herself as a male to play bajha at night. And gosh, she is good at it, especially as a female.
Let’s cheer for Sea Kestrel!
Then she is discovered by Prince Klark who’s desperate to repair his reputation in his family clan. Klark wanted her to play in his team seeing how it would bring victory to his team which would lead to his reputation being restored.
So that is the gist of the story of how they met.
The character development in this book is amazing, Jemm is one of a few female characters that I actually loved. She’s a strong woman who will do anything for his family and I feel connected to her somehow. Klark is great and sweet. And I actually sympathize Nico, he’s been through a lot, such sadness that he had to bear.
The world-building as well as he story-line is perfect, the romance balanced the action. It was clear and easy to understand. It is very much well-written.
Overall, I very much enjoy this book and I am looking forward to reading another book of Susan Grant’s and I certainly am looking forward for the next book in series.
