For decades the elves and the humans have been at odds with one another; relations between their two people bad at best. To unite the two races and bring about peace, Elven princess Arabella is promised in marriage to human prince Phillip. Yet on the eve of her wedding, the growing unrest between her people forces Arabella and a trusted group of protectors to flee her castle home and go into hiding in order to protect her life from those who see the betrothal as the ultimate betrayal. When her refuge is invaded by deadly pirates, Arabella finds herself going on the run with humans who promise to keep her safe, including the charming Robert who ignites a want in Arabella like never before. But as the danger increases and with lives on the line, Arabella must not only fight for her life, but decide just how far she’s willing to go to protect her people; even if it’s at the expense of her own heart…….
As a fan of Janeal Falor’s previous work, I was really excited to read Bound by Birthright and utterly thrilled that Janeal Falor did not disappoint! I really, really loved this book! With the premise sounding promising, I had high hopes for Bound by Birthright and quickly found myself devouring the novel. Bound by Birthright was a well written, well-paced fantasy featuring a highly likable leading lady and the kind of romance I absolutely love. A fantasy tale through and through, there’s pirates, elves, magic and forbidden romance all woven into a fast paced and exciting tale.
Supported by a great cast of characters, Bound by Birthright is told through the eyes of the elven princess Arabella. Arabella was a true fantasy heroine and someone I liked very much. Having lived the life of a princess, Arabella is understandably soft in a lot of ways, but has a strong fire inside her. She genuinely wants to help her people, doesn’t put herself first and is quick to offer help to those around her. Really, she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body; even as she begins to fall for a man she knows she can never be with. Arabella still wants to do the right thing by her people, even at her own cost. She’s smart and capable and grows throughout the novel.
Nothing seems to go as planned for our characters and I loved the twist after twist Janeal Falor wrote into the story. There was plenty of excitement to be found within this story. Fantastic action scenes, electric chemistry and budding friendships added to my enjoyment and I easily became swept up in the growing romance between Arabella and Robert that wasn’t over baring and was rather the icing on the cake with a fantastic book.
Racing towards an incredible cliffhanger ending that will leave you trying to turn pages in the hopes that there’s more of this delectable tale to read, Bound by Birthright is a brilliant start to Janeal Falor’s Elven Princess series and is something that I highly recommend for this to love well told, exciting and enjoyable fantasy!
Fearing for their daughters life Arabella’s parents send her off to go into hiding with a group of servants. When pirates show up looking for Arabella she used magic to change her appearance to get away from them. Fearing for their safety Arabella and her group seek the help of a group of humans when the soldiers that were promised to meet them never show up.
Bound by Birthright was a rather fast paced fantasy featuring an Elven princess who needs to go on the run. All set to do her duty for her parents and her people she was planning on marrying a human in an arranged marriage but has hesitations of finding her own love in her life.
Plenty of action in the story as Arabella flees to what she only thinks is safety and then find the pirates after her and needs to flee again. Then a bit of romance in the mix when Arabella finds herself drawn to a human that is part of the group helping to get her to safety.
A lot packed into this shorter read, a bit of a cliffhanger ending with a twist at the end so would definitely be interested in seeing where things go in the next book.
I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
