The characters are very distinctive. Each time the perspective changes, the author changes the tone and language of the writing. It's as if you're drawn into each of their heads almost instantly.
The story introduces you to the land of Hyacinth, which lies in turmoil as King Robert slowly dies. His heir, Richard, is bent on making his own selfish desires a reality. His half-sister, Daniella, is willing to use anything she can to aid him and keep her own fate within her hands. Now, the protagonist, Anastasia, is their cousin, and she will stop at nothing to thwart their plans. Anything to keep her loved ones safe... but the situation is so much more complex than she could imagine, or be willing to believe.
The author puts a new spin on well known myths and religions, splicing them together until they weave seamlessly into the universe she created. The gorgeous imagery Kyra Dune painted with her words pulled me in and refused to let go. I was riveted, stuck to the book until I had read it all. This easily deserves five stars, and I recommend epic fantasy lovers to give it a read.
First, you need to meet Lady Anastasia who is fearing the future. There are dark forces breaking behind the scenes of her life and she is about to get tangled in things she does not understand. This is what grabbed me to this story. I like a reluctant heroine! Then their is her bother Charlie, who I did not like at first, seems to rely too much on his sister. (Read and find out)
There are several intertwining stories including the King of the Kingdom in which our protagonist brother and sister reside and he is dying. (Not a pleasant situation since the heir is a certified crazy.)
Then there is Princess Daniella and she is an evil woman Her death has been foretold and she will do anything to avoid it. This woman I truly did not like but you will have to choose for yourself yet I think you will agree.
There is treachery afoot and Ms. Dune spins a darn good story. I cannot wait to read more.
And to Ms. Dune; I am an avid reader but a poor writer of reviews. If I could write this review in prose, now that would be my thing. Thank you for writing this book and allowing me several hours of enjoyment/
