I was engaged in the book the entire time and love nothing better than a happy ending. I fun read, and I'm not a fantasy fanatic.
(I didn't think I liked fantasy. Now I know better...)
This is a beautiful tale of Fairies, Elves, and humans set in a kingdom ruled by a kind king. Non-humans have "powers" that are natural to their kind; while their human counterparts lead average lives. I found the story to be compelling - so compelling in fact, that I read the entire book in two days! The themes of love, forgiveness, and redemption that ran throughout the story were beautiful.
The pacing was also perfect for me. The author gave just enough information to keep the plot moving along, but not so much that it made the story drag. If was a nice fast paced book - my favorite!
If I could have asked the author to do anything differently, it would have been to turn this story into a series... a long one! I want more!
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
The plot revolves around Prince Jade who was banished and imprisoned for being evil and trying to kill his older half brother. There is magic, and powers, and some typical fantasy stuff.
However, the main parts of the book are about relationships and personal choices. Revenge, betrayal, punishment, anger , the consequences of actions, emotions, and redemption are all addressed through the people Prince Jade encounters. I do not want to give away any spoilers, for this book has a plot that takes unexpected and very interesting turns.
The characters are well developed with unique personalities.
The dialogue is well written and appropriate for the situations.
The plot is ingenious and rather unique to the books I have read.
The book flows smoothly and reading it was a pleasure. Nice pace, interesting topics, and much to ponder. Not a typical fairy tale, but a fairy tale and morality story all combined into a good novel.
Overall a solid A book, especially for fans of fantasy or morality tales.
This was such a great read.
This is a fantasy book in the vein of fairytales with a Christian twist which worked perfectly and in no way, cheesy.
Jade, is the second heir to Kedrin throne and evil, the boy has issues on every level, after one evil action too many he is banished to... a box.
Yes a box in a forest where a lovely young lady called, Marigold, encounters this 'evil' person but through her kindness towards Jade, he begins to feel things he's never felt before and becomes a changed person, or does he? I can't spoil it for you [although I would love to! I need to tell someone!] other than say this writer has very cleverly written a piece of fiction that I as a Christian can relate to, and read knowing what the characters are reflecting, even though it's fiction that translate to our walk, the emotions we battle and the hardships we share.
I, hand on heart, didn't want this to end and was secretly hoping this would be the first of many stories involving these characters, whom you come to adore.
My heart went out to Marigold so many times, and I loved Jade -by the end!
Now I'm one of those annoying people who just cannot stand romance novels, this is not a romance novel, but this is about love and by Jove, I melted! I'm a goner.
The author has a gift to wrap you up in the moment the character is facing whether it is happiness, anger, love or a sense of an ending that the characters just don't deserve and then the author pulls you back to reveal the 'happy ending'.
The story speeds along there's no waiting around, or building up a picture or sense of a period in time but 'here's the story folks let's go!' Amazing.
I would normally say that this is ideal for teenagers/ YA/ or whatever the politically correct word is nowadays but I [being a little older, ahem] loved this.
You do need a love of things fantasy/ fairy tales but essentially I say this is for those young at heart and an imagination.
