I remembered nothing until I came to the powerful magic that completed the main plot line.I assigned this book a rating of 4.8 because the editing of the last few chapters was nowhere near as good as the first of the book.
The book was very engrossing. I believe it is self-published; however, there did not appear to be grammar or typo issues as you sometimes see with self-published books. I really liked the alternating viewpoints (it was done in an organic way, was not confusing and each section of the book was had asterisks dividing it to indicate that the viewpoint was changing). I felt that this made the story much richer. The world-building was well done and I understood what was going on without a lot of exposition. It was actually quite helpful to see the two different couples as one was working with the rebellion when the other couple was still in the kingdom with the bad king. That enhanced the reader's ability to understand what was going on and gave me a better appreciation for the world.
I felt that the Ranealya/Gregor love story was very believeable. The Galen/Kira one made me a little uncomfortable given how young she was and that Galen was an immortal who had been around for centuries. The book wrapped up almost all of the story (I HATE big cliffhangers at the end that require you to purchase the next book to see what is going on!). There is an open mystery as to what happened to some of the people.... I am assuming that these few open items will be the focus of a future book. I enjoyed the book enough that if the sequel is reasonably priced when it comes out, I will happily read more about this world.
Even if you have never heard of the author or this story, give it a try. Although labeled as a romance, it is in no way overbearing or any more prevalent than most other fantasy series (think Eregon and Arya, or Aragorn and Arwen).
It's got all the elements it needs for a great series. I, for one, cannot wait for the next book and the rest of the series -- and I am one who runs down the battery in my Kindle in days rather than weeks because I read so much.
