This first book in the series examines a life where ruthlessness is bred into the family and love is never a consideration in marriage. Can this young couple survive the Pursual and retain their mutual love? Romeo and Juliet never had to deal with such ruthless families. Be prepared for more in the series but this first book is a very good start. You may wish to read the prequil "The Prome" for free before you read this one--it helps set the stage.
The story centers around Neith and Invier and their families and the well-thought out plan by Neith to bring their families together in a happily ever after. But, the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.
My one problem with the writing was the first person narrative that had me questioning who was talking in the various chapters. I guess I’m not a good student of this style of writing, but I have no hesitation in recommending the book.
When young lovers are forced into a competition where people are matched up according to their family's ranking, Neith comes up with a plan. Since her parents married for love, despite being shunned from their families, she wanted marriage by love too. So she makes plans for her and her true love to be together. But her plans begin to unravel as circumstances beyond her control begin happening and soon even her guy begins doubting her motives. Then, betrayal by a family member hurts her to the core.
I was totally awed and surprised by the ending. My favorite part? "Book 1." I eagerly look forward to Book 2. F.F. is an author to watch.
