WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED?

I had to sleep on this review because I had to gather all of my thoughts after that finish (Note: this first part is without reading the legend of Tristan and Iseult).

My mind is so boggled. This book was great! I felt it got better with each page turn. The flow was fairly fast paced and kept you on your toes. For the last 100 pages I felt this horrid sense of foreboding that I couldn’t put my finger on. AND BOY, I DID NOT PUT MY FINGER ON IT AT ALLLLLLL.

Tristan was too cute and I enjoyed his character connected with Branwen. Branny did bother me on occasion because it came off that she was way too focused on not ruining the alliance. I get it’s a big deal, but girlfriend. It’ll be okay.

Essy on the other hand was a tad too bratty for me. While I know her issues must be tough to deal with she continually was so flippant in her attitude and added a lot more sass than was necessary at times.

I have mixed feelings towards the magic portions of this book. It played a part and didn’t all at the same time. I don’t think it was forced, but hopefully with the later books it will intertwine and I will grasp what the author is going for more.

Now that I Googled the legend after finishing the first book…

WHAT? I have so many questions. And I am so curious about this entire series. I think the legend enhanced what I read. I want to know where Branwen will really play her part and am excited to keep reading these books!

Definitely a young adult book. No language [YAY]. A few kissing scenes, with one minor scripted love scene. Violence as two countries are at war with each other. A little gruesome occasionally.
