One of the notable things here is that some of the pros are cons, and vice versa. For instance: the story is a little wordy, yet doesn't fully flesh out the world. Some things have too much description (these tend to be details) and other things have too little description (these tend to be plot elements). A couple of things are obvious and explained to the reader anyway (like "none of the knights had wings, and therefore most of them were on foot"). Lines could be shortened; lines could be lengthened.
The story is fairly interesting except it's told in a scattered manner. The King's Daughters could be expanded into something double in length. Smoothing out transitions between events, going into more details about why some things are they way they are, etc. This may not be a con for some people. Everything is fast-paced, which many people will like. Others may prefer extra build-up.
Could do with a few touch-up edits to make the prose flow more smoothly. Still, the grammar and spelling is good. The book cover is reasonable. Overall, one could argue that a 3.5/5 would be a more accurate rating than 4/5. There are, however, enough elements to like here. I'd definitely read more from this author.
The story starts, and you are taken into the faerie world where their is conflict between family members. What was perhaps once a happy family is now torn apart because of death, jealousy, and a thirst for power.
Sarah's description, characters, plot, and ability to tell a story in a short period of time makes this a great read. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, and I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys faeries and fantasy.
