If you're looking for a good, solid fairytale, then this is for you. It has intrigue, romance, adventure, a magical horse, and characters with spirit to pull you in. Who could ask for more?
I was interested enough in this book to let it be my first ever Kindle experience, and it was a pleasant one. Several times towards the climax of the book and the well-written romantic scenes, I forgot I was reading.
It's clear the author knows horses, and what with her credentials on the subject anyone can feel 'safe' in that regard as they read this.
Teenage girls would enjoy it very much! I wish this book had been around when I was a young teenager! I think I would have benefitted and been encouraged by the outgoing character-of-action, Cassia. It makes for a wonderful coming-of-age story. One of my favorite lines from the book is this;
"...Reaching inside herself, [Cassia] squared her shoulders and followed him. She'd come for answers. It was time she started acting like a princess and not a scared little girl."
[Warning: There are several typos throughout the book, but maybe that's the fault of the electronic device.]
A good and recommended read!
The story is of Princess Cassia. Her life is easy as any princess' would be, but there is more to her than that. She is bored and constrained in her place. Then with the death of her father her world comes crashing down. She is next in line to rule and due to a treaty is being forced to marry a prince from another kingdom to help bring peace to the region. But...and there is always a but, it is believed that the kings death was a murder and Cassia needs to understand why. She also has come to believe the treaty was forged so she shouldn't have to marry. She runs. Not really away but to find the truth and the reason for her father's death. With the help of several friends, one being a horse, she also learns that she has a gift, the ability to commune with horses.
The author did a fantastic job of weaving together all the points of this story. All the people, all the problems, all the magic just flowed and kept me captivated.
If I had to pick something that I didn't like, it would be it ended to fast, but then I am greedy like that. Lets just hope that this author decides to do a follow up of this book so that we readers can see what happens...now.
All in all a very good read.
I was pulled into this romance from the beginning. I couldn't stop reading. I had to know what happened.
This was very well written. I am hoping there will be another book to follow this one.
The ending kept me wanting more. Each chapter made me want to keep reading.
I fell into this book. I felt I was the princess. I could see everything like I was there.
This was definitly a job well done. I would recommend this book to teen as well as adults. It is definitly worth the money.
The heroine discovers she has a special power. She's able to charm horses and make them do what she wishes. While she gets to the bottom of who murdered her father and why, she begins to utilize these newfound powers.
There's a subtle romance going on with a horse wrangler, nothing too racy, and the ending leaves enough that you want to read sequel. And for a while there in the last quarter, I thought for sure the family wasn't going to get themselves out of this mess.
It kept me guessing and I want to mention...with fantasy, the author has the leeway to create their own world and do not have to be historical accurate. I've read old-world fantasy books that were supposed to take place in medieval times, but had balloons. This author didn't do anything like that. Her setting (even with the horse communication was believable and I was able to transplant myself mentally into this world she created with the same ease as if it was reading a historical fiction.
Very well done. A likable and realistic heroine who at times acts impetuous. She's feisty without it being unbelievable. The prose was smooth. The action once you got to the middle, entertaining.
