The story is fairly quick paced and is told in a little less than 200 pages. In general, I am a romance reader, and although this story had some romantic hints / elements, it really is a paranormal fantasy. I love how the back story was incorporated into the tale without ever feeling like an information dump. I love when you feel like you are opening a present strip by strip so that you are surprised by the final product by the time you get to the whole picture, and Dani-Lyn Alexander really did a great job with this.
Our heroine is 17 year old Ryleigh who is raising her younger sister while trying to remain under the radar since her grandmother passed away so that they won't be separated and put into the foster care system. Both girls lost their parents years ago and were both sheltered and insulated from the world by their grandmother. Her death thrusts Ryleigh into a very overprotective role and often leads Mia to seem much younger than her actual years, although there are hints that she is much stronger than she appears.
I loved Jackson. From the moment he appears in the story, he is enigmatic and engaging. There is a bit of the expected attraction/dislike between him and Ryleigh, but it isn't overdone or too formulaic. Make no mistake, although the cover is a bit romance looking, and there is a bit of attraction between the two leads, this is not a romance, but an action packed fantasy with far off kingdoms, dragons, warriors, and death dealers.
Kai is extremely harsh and unyielding. In his eyes, only the established rules of Cymmera are to be followed and he will enforce those laws, even if it means suggesting the death penalty for the prince's failure to uphold Cymmera's beliefs. I have some other thoughts on Kai, but I hate too much info in reviews.
This is such a fresh voice and definitely worth the read. I think it is a solid 4 star book, and I am looking forward to Dani-Lyn Alexander's next installment.
