Plus, J.M. Miller's writing style. She's a chameleon author, switching genres with ease.
That being said, let me tell you my thoughts about this book.
Like with any PNR/fantasy book and world, it takes a little for the reader to get into the world described by the author; with the characters and elements. The book starts with the main character, Vala - the entire story is told from her POV - as she slowly reveals to us that she is different than the others. I won't say more than that, so as not to spoil it.
Vala is the prince's guard, they grew up together and she's one of the best. People fear her because she is different, so while that makes for a pretty lonely existence, Vala takes it as an advantage against the enemy.
Gardin is a small kingdom and about to be taken over by a much larger one. Either by force or through marrying Prince Caulden to Princess Anja. Was I fan of these two? No. As a matter of fact, I pretty much was pissed off because of how they treated Vala and I wish she stood up more for herself.
But! It all works out when a mysterious male character pops up out of nowhere. Yes, I was intrigued by him. Yes, I fell for him. Read the book and you'll see why.
I'll only say this, there will be more. Some questions aren't answered, some characters still need an a** kicking. As a whole, I really enjoyed the book, especially the last 30% or so. I'm eager for more!
I voluntarily agreed to review an early copy of this book, which I'm rating 4 - 4.5 stars.
I'd read her rom-com - Spied last year and I'd loved it!I hadn't expected that she'd work equally well in the fantasy genre too!
She has created a completely original and fascinating world in this book, and it was amazing to read about!
This book had well-developed and intriguing characters, tons of action,secrets and twists with a dash of romance!
Vala was born with charred skin that made her look as if she was burnt!Her touch can burn others and though water hurts her,she has to regularly go through the pain to relieve the pressure.Though others have always been apprehensive of her, through her dedication and hardwork she has worked her way upto the head guard position for the prince.Though they are wary of her,they want her on their side, and she is happy to have a purpose.But it all starts to go wrong when the High Princess and her mother arrive to Garlin to perhaps work on a marriage with the prince and an alliance.An assassination attempt is made, and she encounters the assassin who has skin just like her.But is he really the enemy?
The Queen blames her for this and punishes her too.This along with the need to uncover more about herself and her heritage pushes Vala down a path she may never be able to turn back from!
I really liked Vala as a protagonist!She was smart,loyal and strong.But, she desires to know more about herself and why she is different from others. She was careful in the beginning, but as time went I felt like she began to slip.But that was understandable as time and again she was thrown into unprecedented situations.She only had a few people truly on her side, and that was quite sad in the beginning!
I guess it was implied that she loved the prince, but I never felt it.And his character was kind of a weak point anyway.Quite disappointing.
I really loved Vala and her developing relationship with Xavyn!He was a really interesting one and I love their exchanges!He is quite helpful, but has his own things to look after too!
I dont want to give anymore of the plot away, but the story and writing was really good with the action and the twists!My favorite part was the world building!Its very imaginative and beautiful!The characters could definitely use a little bit more development though.
The ending was awesome and left me wanting more!Can't wait to read book 2!
P.S. I just looked through J.M.Miller's works and realised that she has a varied list of books in many genres!I'll be definitely reading those while waiting for the next in the series!
