When they are just children, Leah and the prince, Rafe, meet secretly in a closet to share their struggles and successes. They become best friends – and they fall in love. But the prince can’t marry a servant girl. His parents want him to marry a princess from the neighboring Trellich. When Leah discovers a Trellich plot to assassinate the prince and his parents and take over the kingdom, she tries to warn them. Which gets her banished for treason.
She asks to go to Trellich, and she’s taken part of the way and abandoned. She’s found by a group of mystic nuns. I gotta tell ya, I love these nuns! They’re fun AND mysterious. So cool. They help Leah get a job in the Trellich castle so Leah can try to get evidence to prove she’s not lying.
Leah gets the evidence and returns to Imperia, but she finds the prince has been drugged!
Did I mention an evil dark sorcerer? Yeah. The mystic nuns go head to head with him. Told ya they were cool!
Yes, there’s a happy ending, for which I’m happy about, as who really wants a sad ending? Maybe some people enjoy a tragedy, but not me! Give me happily ever after every time.
I enjoyed the relationship between Leah and her mother. I thought the characters were well developed, and I enjoyed Laurie’s voice very much. She doesn’t give too much detail, which I like. Get me to the story already! Haha!
The relationship between Leah and Rafe is so smartly crafted—starting out unexpectedly and growing over the years as friendship, then finally, despite their best efforts, more. It made them seem even more innocent and charming and worthy of cheering them on through the twists and turns of court life.
And Lucking manages to keep the story going without it seeming to drag. She keeps her characters in just enough peril to keep the reader turning pages, but not so much that you need extra oxygen to keep up!
And finally, I have to admit, I loved the nuns! What a collection of characters! I truly hope that I get to know them more in the next installment in Lucking’s Tales of the Mystics series.
Common was a truly enjoyable read and I highly recommend you pick up your own copy today. Then just curl up with your favorite hot beverage and get happily lost in the world of Imperia!
There was just enough gorgeous descriptions to transport me to Imperia, the dialogue gave me a real sense of everyone with distinct voices for each character, and I loved Leah’s adventures as she deat with the fallout of her from her decisions. So what are you waiting for? Grab this book and get ready for nuns who must have the most interesting back story ever, some court intrigue, and enough adventure and romance to keep you turning the pages.
