If you're familiar with my reviews you're probably asking yourself why I am reviewing a fantasy novel. I know, they aren't my style, but an author I respect 100% suggested it and when J.D. Hollyfield explained the premise a bit more I bought into it. WORTH IT. I loved this book, I might have to read more fantasy like this in the future.
'All we have to do is dangle ye in front of his brother and wait until he breaks.'
The main characters in Unlocking Adeline are so headstrong. Addie and Locke are stubborn characters who are always in denial, it's hilarious. I loved the push pull between these two and that they were both covering up what they really felt due to the pressure on them. Their story is made up of fate, but they're fighting that fate and I think it really brought out some interesting dynamics between the two. It doesn't help that they're from two dimensions, two very different worlds with different ideals and beliefs. That said, I think Addie was written perfectly for the world change, she was so sick of life, of being held back, and this opportunity, though not ideal, really brought out her true self. Definitely loved them both.
Normally I rate fantasy down due to the unbelievable scenarious, but the changing dimension made a world of difference in terms of believability for me. J.D. Hollyfield is an incredibly descriptive writer, she brought Addie's world at home and the skeleton key world of Wren to life. World building is huge for me, so being able to picture the land of Wren like I was seeing it right in front of me was incredible. Unfortunately, I wanted more in terms of character history. While we get the full story by the end of the novel, I was left desperate for a bit more related to the secondary characters. There were a lot of strong emotions left over due to Addie's father and I would have really liked to see those explored more. Plus, with Addie's strong temperment I think it would have expanded the world even more for me.
'His eyes; they are just like in my dad's stories. The crescent moon. The eyes of the prince who comes to claim his princess.'
I really enjoyed J.D. Hollyfield Skeleton Key novel, Unlocking Adeline. It was the perfect book to bring me back into the world of fantasy, as well as a delightful story about family, romance, and fate. I absolutely recommend this one to all readers, even those like me who run from fantasy at every turn.
I've been following the writing of J.D. Hollyfield since the beginning. I've fallen in love with her kick-ass heroines and snarky writing style. Always clever, always sexy, and always impossible to put down.
Unlocking Adeline was like the icing on my cupcake, the jelly to my toast, like binging on "better than sex" cake with my favorite glass of wine. It was a ‘kids, shut up; honey, not tonight; go away world, I'm reading’ kind of book. Almost as if she put everything that I love into it, and stirred it into one delicious recipe.
Fantasy land, similar to a medieval historical? Check. Fairy tales and magic? Check. Sexy brooding hero, who is gentle and tender with children? Shut up, stupid ovaries. Strong willed heroine who actually walks the walk? You got it. Snark? Hells yeah! Sprinkle in a cast of amazing secondary characters (who are SCREAMING for their own books), yes, thank you very much.
It was everything I had forgotten I craved, and now the only problem is that it definitely didn't satisfy my appetite. I desperately crave more.
