She loved her father, but she no longer trusts him.
His death made me sad, not for him, but for sweet Rana who forgave him for killing her mother and trying to kill her. He had never known until this day that both his wife and child were fairies with powers beyond his imagination.
Instead of falling into grief, Rana had to focus on saving her people. She would not allow Schnell to enslave her people. Thus Rana claims the thrown at sixteen. She must save her people, ferret out the evil in her own hold and take control, not just of her hold, but of her enemy’s as well. At first the task seems impossible, but as she gathers good people around her, it becomes possible.
Never has there been a more determined young woman than Rana. She is inspiring, kind, and resourceful.
Two stars because it wasn't a terribly bad read - it was just too much fluff for my taste.
I can’t even imagine the hardships Rana faced, and she still managed to come out on top like she did. She’s strong yet vulnerable, a girl at heart but also a warrior woman – and a fairy too! Seeing her grow up and come into her own was thrilling and rewarding. As usual, the author made all the other characters (like Mirimar and General Collins) come alive too, which is another of her strengths.
This is so much more than a YA novel with plot twists or a modern-day fairytale. It’s a message to all the girls and women out there that you don’t need a man to be powerful and to find your purpose in life or to be happy. It’s a story about trust and overcoming stereotypes, about relationships and about that little magical something which lives in all of us and carries us through hardships.
This was a great book and super interesting with Rana's abilities. Rana was a character that you loved right away as she was so unselfish and really was willing to do anything for her kingdom and the people in it. She challenged every minister who went against her and improved the lives of the people and allowed the empowerment of women!
I loved the dedication of General Collins to Rana and how he would have done anything to protect her. He was truly such a great guy and I felt bad when he learned about his own family and what happened with them. I also thought the character of Mirimar was great and I loved how she was able to financially find any problems!
Initially I thought Prince Seren was great and I loved how neither knew who the other was but then when he discovered everything he turned into such a jerk. I'm glad that he was able to really discover the leader he could be with Queen Rana's help and do some good for Crystalhold!
This was such a great book and I really hope we get another book with these characters!
At the age of sixteen, I was more worried about boys than ruling a country or making sure my people were safe from war. I didn't understand how people could say mean things or act out behind my back. Yet at sixteen, Rana understood how to be a leader at a time when so many of her "so called friends" were really out to get her. Rana could look inside a person with a touch of her hand...She never asked to be queen or to lose her parents, but when it happened, she put the needs of others first. Yet, even to protect her castle, she doesn't indiscriminately kill. She finds ways to stop the invaders without harming the innocents.
Once again, Ms. O'Connor weaves a tale of magic and honor. Her characters teach me something about life each time I read them. Her thinking and strong honor are things we need more of in our world.
Even the secondary characters learn from Rana. They learn how to be more honest and caring. They learn how to be stronger and how to fight for what they want. This is certainly a book for everyone...
