It didn’t really make sense to me that Lark went back and forth between “I’m just a doormat” to “I’m a fierce warrior” every other page. It was also very obvious that she is not useless from the very beginning of the book, but everyone around her, including herself, continuously say she is useless. It actually got kind of annoying that they had to mention that on every page, like the point was made that everyone thinks she’s useless move on from it.
There was also a line early on that kind of bothered me, where Lark mentions that she must be retarded because she is weak and can’t do anything by herself. I just didn’t like the use of the word retarded in this regard, a better word definitely could’ve been chosen.
I did like how the book was fairly short and easy to read within a few hours, but I also feel that the book could’ve been so much better to me if it was just slightly longer, enough so that things could’ve been explained more thoroughly.
This is a fast-moving story with lots of action. Who is controlled by the queen and who isn't? We figure these things out, but many of the treacherous acts take us by surprise. You will not want to put this one down!
The idea is unique (to me, at least), so I'm glad I read it because of that. I found myself rolling my eyes and snorting my nose during some parts of it, but eh. It really wasn't that bad.
Since the idea was so unique, I decided to get the second book for this series, which is much better than this one. Even so, I still rolled my eyes and snorted my nose during some parts.
This is a good book if you have nothing else to read and want to let your imagination run wild.
Larkspur is a half-breed. She is the daughter of the king by a mistress and is not treated like her siblings. She is treated horribly because she doesn't possess any magic. However, she soon realizes that she is more powerful than anyone knows. Ms. Mayer tells us who Lark is through flashbacks. She is made to train as an Ender, but she doesn't let that stop her. Lark puts everything she has into her training. We also meet some other interesting characters like Ash.
I'm still a Rylee girl at heart, but Lark is a close second.

Larkspur is an elemental, she can draw power from the earth. Or at least she should be able to but something happened and she's lost that connection, it's trapped somewhere inside her waiting to be unleashed. She is an outcast among her family the illegitimate daughter of the king. She must come to terms with her past if she ever wants to discover the truth and protect the ones she loves.
If you have read the rylee Adamson series by Shannon then you should definitely try this one to.
I don't think I'll be continuing the series.
I'm not the best at saying why a book is good. This one is great.
What's a definite is... Whatever Shannon Mayer writes, I will read. I don't need to see a description, She's that good.
From being in the Rylee series and her introduction, there was always a story waiting to be read and this is the beginning of the amazing rollercoaster ride of what is to come. Can't wait for the next instalment.
