Okay where to begin and then again make sure there aren’t any spoilers! AAAH! okay…seriously pull yourself together!
0b1ee0225c9a167a16d0f9d8d30a24c2.jpgThis book is about Willow a girl who knew she didn’t really belong with the family she has always known. But little does she know when it comes to her heritage and what it means to everyone else. Willow grew up way outside the the city, poor where she worked with her family in their inn. She loves where she’s at even though one day she seeks to be free of everything and everyone. I love Willow, she is strong, beautiful and not at all weak. She isn’t naive but smart and keeps you on your toes. She’s everything I like in my female characters.
When word comes that the marriage between two powerful houses are not to happen due to the lady of one house being a fraud. What’s important to know about that is magic is important and the houses and the joining of blood to make stronger magic is even more important. So, then the hunt begins for the traitor that stole the real heiress and switched them with this false girl and the actual heiress.
When Commander Reece shows up looking for the traitor he finds Willow and forces her to7f7f1a79bc31cc65ef3855e23d022e1f.jpg return with him to the Core which is the elite city, a place she’s never been and only the wealthy live. I LOVE commander Reece he is everything I like in my male characters….well except his hair, dude CUT IT OFF..but that is more of a personal preference. Anyway he has depth, a past, brooding, strong yet gentle and kind, he keeps you on your toes and I loved that because I never knew what to expect from him.
The world building was crazy cool, I liked the concept that the further you were away from the elite city Core the more old fashioned in speech, dress and culture you got. There is no technology or such out where Willow was raised and the closer you got to the Core the more tech-y savy life became. Now with all that you’ve got, magic. Magic only a few have and some people would literally KILL for. When a group of rebels try to steal the blood of the those that have ti becomes a dangerous game of cat and mouse.
Overall, I LOVED LOVED this book that I had to own a copy of it. I was also able to reach out to the author for a signed copy giveaway…more on that below. I could NOT put this book down it was so complicated and adventurous I just didn’t sleep one night and plowed through it! Now only to wait for book two! GAH! And I so hope more people find out about this book and give it a chance because I loved it! I can’t wait to see what more this author has up she sleeves!
Sexual Content: mild
GAMBIT is about 16-yr-old Willow, where after rare powers in her DNA emerge, is uprooted from her village life and taken into a world of technology and corruption as an heiress. Her security commander, Reece, is willing to do anything to protect her from enemy attacks, but his motives cause a conflict of interest, if you know what I mean. It's like X-Men meets Hunger Games (but I liked GAMBIT better than Hunger Games).
This book...it is so good. SO GOOD. Did I mention that I did not want it to end? I read one review where someone griped about tropes, but tropes find commonalities readers identify with, and frankly there isn't a book out there that doesn't have some sort of trope. I think some readers let semantics rule their inability to just sit down and read a damn good book. Beautiful cover art btw.
My copy came from Story Cartel. I was not required to leave a review, I did so of my own free choice. My opinions are my own.
I really enjoyed this book. It had all the elements I look for and love: anything Scottish, the love-hate relationship, power, adventure. The writing style flowed really nicely, but my favorite part was how the story kept changing and evolving, going from a rural village to a Dystopian city of the future. The characters were enjoyable, some more than others, most specifically Reece. I liked how complex he was. He definitely kept me on my toes with his different emotions and involvement in everything.
This is definitely a book to check out.
This book blew me away, I really just loved it. Plenty of action, well written action, at that. The world in this book is phenomenal, it has me hooked. It literally has a little of everything; from half invisible guardians, to crazy ex-girlfriends, and everything in between.
I received an ARC of Gambit for an honest review.
