I loved the Prologue as it introduced King Merrick. Poor guy just needs some love. I was very curious about him and wanted to know more about him immediately. However, by the second encounter with Juliana (the heroine of this story)…he was a bit off. Then I realized what he was doing as the story progressed and it made sense — even if I didn’t agree with his decisions. Would have solved things so much easier if people would just communicate!
Speaking of which — Juliana. Annoying. Her internal dialogue as she tried to reason with herself with why she did something, or why she believed this or that was irritating. She seemed like she should have been smarter than that, but she was naïve to the point of dumb. Not to mention how she was pretty much in insta-love with Merrick despite all he’s done. Merrick, in no way, shows any redeeming qualities when he presents himself to Juliana. He’s not a nice guy. When we’re reading from his point of view, we can see and understand what he’s trying to do, that he really isn’t as bad as he’s made out to be, but Juliana doesn’t see or get that from him. He does everything from hurting her and tricking her, and yet, she loves him. Annnnnd then she responds to Nicholas right after doing the dirty with Merrick. That was also off-putting. Whether she believed she did it or not, for being so innocent and believing that it’s a sin if you’re not married, she didn’t push Nicholas away. Also, her utter lack of trust in Merrick, accusing him at every turn and not speaking plainly (again, communication!!!) was frustrating.
Enough about her.
Mia! Oh how I wished there was more about Mia and Lucian. That woman has it bad, and I just want something to happen that will make Lucian pause. He cares for her. You can see it despite what he does. Doesn’t make what he does right, but oh, she needs to bring him to his knees. I hope they have more in the book to come or their own as well.
Overall, I enjoyed the book. I would recommend and would love to read the next in the series. My only complaint was that this had too many POV’s from several characters. But it was a very entertaining read with beautiful world building.
The social norms of the medieval humans is a shocking reminder of how rigid and sexist things were back then. The human characters accept it as the way things are and should be.
The magical world has so much tradition tied to certain roles that some behaviors are so expected, the characters don't even begin to think outside the box.
All of this comes together to create obstacles for the main characters and their burgeoning romance.
A good read.
It's most definitely well written and the wording and setting certainly don't jar and fit with the time period. The characters are multi faceted and not just 2 dimensional. It didn't follow the usual route of hero and heroine as initially the heroine is most definitely not willing to marry this knight! But there is no coercion or force used which would be a big no no for me.
Otherwise it was an enjoyable read but not something I would get sucked into, unlike Ms Pillows paranormal reads.
