Now, by this point in the series, we know Clara is the product of a union between the sphere dwellers and the Band, and we know that Clara's father, King Raymond, loved Rowenna so much that he commissioned a painting of her within his kingdom, since he knew he'd never see her again. And, if you've read The Savage Blood, then you know a whole lot more about Rowenna because we meet her in the flesh, in the present. But... The Savage Principle takes us back, giving us an in-depth, personal look at the truth about Clara's conception and the choices King Raymond and Rowenna had to make, and how those choices ultimately influence Queen Clara today.
But this novel doesn't just show us the younger years of King Raymond and Rowenna... remember Queen Ada? We also get to see her as she was during her teens, and let me just say, it's not pretty. Rolland, Rowenna's betrothed, is also a huge part of the story, and we come to understand just how much heartache was involved in the Zondorae brother's attempt to play "God" within this alternate universe.
It. Is. Epic. What I love about this series is the vast world building, amazing characterization, and fast-paced nature that leaves me always wanting more. I was especially excited to see a few characters from the Death series show up in this novel as well (they play a huge part in The Savage Vengeance, too), and I especially loved that, while a new adult novel, it's not full of explicit sex. In fact, this novel glosses right over the act, focusing more so on the adult themes of pregnancy, true love, and selflessness, and less on sexual acts. I also really enjoy the way the characters speak. Blodgett keeps the entire novel in an archaic-like prose and dialogue, and I just love it. It's very easy to read and understand, but as you can imagine, it's probably not so easy to write, yet Blodgett keeps her entire story in "character" with an archaic feel of it all, and, with each new Savage novel I pick up, it never ceases to amaze me.
What a heart wrenching story it was. To be 16 and put in such a position with the survival of the world as you know it, on your shoulders. Forced to conceive a child with a total stranger, when you are betrothed to another, and in love with yet another; poor Rowenna get's the shortest straw there is!
My heart ached throughout. What a savage world the Outsider's truly live in!
What I loved most about PRINCIPLE, was that TRB had me back in that world within mere sentences and it was a pleasure to be back there. I never had to wrack my brain to be back in a moment or scene. I loved getting answers to questions I had and getting the backstory to a character that has stuck with me. I think it is also great that it has been made book 3 as it will help new readers to understand the Savage world a little better.
I cried, I laughed, my stomach was in knots, I cheered & fist pumped! The intrigue by itself had me enthralled.
I think the circumstances of Clara's conception are going to give us some juicy plots in the SAVAGE books still to come, and I for one can not wait!!!
"Love was an errant master, unjust to the finest detail, forcing its will against all odds, against all reason.
The heart always won".
Rowenna is Band and select. She has chosen her mate, but she has also been chosen by the Travelers for their genetic games. Her and Prince Raymond of the sphere are to come together to create an offspring that will save their future. No pressure or anything, right? The kicker, Rowenna doesn't get to raise the child, and traveling through the pathway will shorten Raymond's life. It seems no one is to have a HEA. If you have been following Tamara's Savage series you know how this story ends. However, I recommend reading this book. Not only because it is awesome, but because it is packed full of surprises.
It's amazing to me that Tamara can go back and forth between this writing style and the writing style she uses in her contemp work (like Death, and Blood) so effortlessly. I love the steampunk feel to the Savage series. It has been awhile since I have been in this world so I had to acclimate to the speech, but I did so quickly. The story draws us in. It really does.
Prince/King Raymond is everything we are led to believe he is. He is clearly a very amazing man. Clara was lucky to have him, even if it was for a short while. He is so tender with Rowenna. He treats her with respect despite the fact that they have had the weight of their world put on their shoulders.
..."you will come to me without inhibition, of your own desire. If it take one month or six, it will be of your choosing Rowenna."
Rowenna was not always Big Warrior Amazon woman. She really had to work her way to that position. She faced a lot of adversary.
Ada, she still makes me want to vomit. She is so evil. It's equal parts awesomely evil and oh my gawsh how can someone suck so badly.
We meet new characters in this book and they are only here briefly, but they make such a huge impact that they will be remembered.
This novella is amazing. It's under 30k but I finished it with a satisfied feeling. It felt complete and whole. Sometimes shorter works leave me wanting more, but not Principle.
This is most definitely a great addition to this series. I cannot wait to dive back into this world with all this new information when Protector comes out in April.
***I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for this opinion. This review is 100% honest.
