Aleta was another surprise to the story, thought I was going to hate her and that changed drastically with the plot!
My favorite scene is when Katerine is escorting Bree from the birthday party roughly and Bree has her power revealed, it's just brilliantly done :)
I was much disappointed by Bree's da, think his name is Ardin. Really wanted him to reveal more to her and become her hero again after she realizes all the deception that has gone on throughout her life. Didn't like that he was in prison most of the book, but hoped she would have more time with him.
The king and Katerine and brilliant villains and VERY well written in this clean, fantasy adventure! I've already ordered the sequel in print with ANOTHER stunning cover and looking forward to learning more! *the epic writing style reminded me of Dare by Tricia Mingerink, except Dare is Christian fiction*
In the first few paragraphs of this book, I was so impressed with the writing. It’s so rich in description and I easily fell into this story. I couldn’t put it down until I turned the very last page (well, actually swiped to the last page because I was reading the eBook).
I really liked Bree as a character. All of the book she is so out of her element and just trying to stay alive. She was strong and independent. I actually really loved how the romance in this book took a back-seat roll. You really got the sense of how much she truly cared about her dad because it wasn’t overshadowed by some unrealistic romance.
The secondary characters in this book are amazing as well. There’s more depth to them than I thought there would be, or than what is typically in other books. Out of the secondary characters, I found I really started to love Aleta. She really surprised me. Katherine/Kat was also a character that I wouldn’t have wanted to miss in this book. She got so much larger of a role than I thought she would and I just loved how evil she was (I loved to hate her).
This book was a bit predictable to me (I guessed the big secret pretty quickly), but there is still a lot of mystery and things I wouldn’t have guessed to happen. The flow of this book was amazing and I never once got bored. It’s not until the end that most of the big revelations happen, but I never felt confused during this book.
There was a bit of a cliffhanger at the end, but it wasn’t a terrible one. It’s like most series these days that always end with something that will lead directly into the next book.
Honestly, I was completely blown away from this book. I expected it to be slow to get into, with the potential long build-up until things got moving, but you are jolted right into everything from the beginning. This book surprised me in so many ways and Jennifer Ellision really is a talented author. I can’t wait to read the second book.
I also have to mention that I love the cover of this book. The model and the dress are both beautiful. I also love the crashing waves in the background, they really give a good tone for the book.
Bree is just a normal sixteen year old girl who lives with her normal dad in the countryside…or so we think. In a twist of fate, her whole world changes in the span of a day because she crosses paths with three of the King’s Elemental Soldiers. When they find out who her father really is, Bree and her father are immediately hauled off to face the king where he is then thrown in jail for treason. While her father is faced with being a prisoner, Bree has to adapt to life at court as well as the constant scrutiny of the King and his spies.
I liked Bree – she is smart and loyal. She also isn’t afraid to stand up for herself and do what she needs to in order to survive. She definitely has some surprises pop up throughout the story but none of them break her even though they are all very much life changing. As the story progresses, we see Bree struggle in a world with things she is not familiar with and situations she is not comfortable in but we also see her become more than just a barmaid.
As Bree begins to learn more about who her father is and what the king is after, she also begins to learn more about herself. At the same time that all of this is happening, we are introduced to some interesting secondary characters and I have to admit, I want to know more about all of them. Tregle, Aleta, and Caden are all well developed and each of them has separate relationships with Bree that become integral to the story. One of my favorite things was seeing the friendship develop between Aleta and Bree. They have every reason to not like each other and despite that, they do eventually forge a friendship and it becomes very clear that they will be relying on each other more in the future.
Of course, if you know me, you know that I like a bit of swoon/romance in my books and I have to say, I wanted a bit more here. Don’t get me wrong, what is there is done well but it took super long to get to the kissing. Now...I have to say, this in no way took away from the story. I think I was Just in the mood for swoons from Caden and although I got them at the end, I’m hoping we get more in the future. Of course this leads me to talking about Caden. I loved how he was introduced and just how much he opposes everything his father stands for. There were times though that I wanted him to be more vocal about what he wanted…granted I see why he didn’t considering how evil his father is but still, it might have been interesting to see what happened.
I do also hope we get to learn more about Tregle’s background. He clearly knows things and I feel like his story and secrets will be helpful to Bree as she adapts to her life now and all the things going on. I am also SUPER curious about his and Aleta’s story.
So I can’t say much else here only because I don’t want to give any of the secrets away. And trust me, there are a lot of things to find out. I will say that Ellision has created a world where people who possess Elemental gifts become servants of the king and Bree is definitely in danger along with her family and friends. Having only just begun to learn exactly what her father went through acting on behalf of the king, Bree knows she needs to do something quickly and as she plots her escape, she finds out even more about herself. I’m excited to see what happens in the next book and if you enjoy high fantasy, definitely check this one out. It has plenty of danger and action and while there are some things I wanted to learn more about (Elemental Gifts) I am thinking I will get it in the next book. Now….when does that come out?
Though barmaid Breena Perdit lives a simple and happy life for 16 years, there is much her father has kept hidden from her. This well-written tale was a joy to read, to root for Bree as she learns the ins and outs of life at Court and discovers her past.
Thanks to NetGalley for a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Breena Rose was content as a barmaid in her father’s humble tavern. They lived good if modest lives and were never bothered by a soul.Read more
