White Hart is a phenomenal story. There's magic, a prince, a haunted forest, and frightening creatures all waiting inside. - Amazon Vine Voice Reviewer
This fantasy series is impossible to put down! I binge read all three books in two days! - Amazon Reviewer
I love unconventional heroines. Girls with grit under their fingernails and a brain. I loved this one enough to stay up way too late last night reading. - Amazon Reviewer

White Hart is a mediocre young adult fantasy book. I am an adult who enjoys reading young adult fantasy books and I looked forward to reading this one. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. I think this book would be okay for a younger, middle school reader. But there are just too many problems for me.

In short, the kingdom of Aegunlund is floundering without magic (and in my opinion, without a good, strong king). The king has decreed that the first craft-born girl (someone who can use nature magic) who comes along will marry his son, Prince Casimir. Mae is that girl for this generation. And she wants that kept a secret.

Girls try trickery to win the coveted position of wife to the crown prince. In Mae's village, one such girl, Ellen, succeeds in tricking Prince Casimir into believing that she is craft-born. Mae is happy to let Ellen have the honor. But before Prince Casimir and Ellen can make it home to the castle to be wed, the unthinkable happens, forcing Mae and the prince to set off together through the dark and very dangerous Waerg Woods. Will they succeed in rescuing Ellen and making it safely to the castle???

There were several things that didn't work for me in this book.

First, and this may sound crazy since this is a fantasy book, the book wasn't believable. The best fantasy books weave such a good story that even though things are magical and made up, you feel caught up in the world the author created. You feel like you are there in the midst of the action. You feel so enmeshed in the book that it seems totally real and plausible. That never happened here. The woods were full of all sorts of very interesting and creative dangers. May and the prince had to navigate these or perish trying.

This Review was originally posted on Avid Reviews : [...]

White Hart is a young adult fantasy story from an independently published author. It contains elements of epic fantasy, adventure, and a touch of young love. The tone changes throughout the novel from dark fantasy to traditional fantasy, and even though this is not a common plot device I found I enjoyed the change, as it was consistent with the book’s themes.
The story follows a young girl named Mae, who is the only person in her generation to possess nature magic. She is needed desperately by her Kingdom to be a catalyst for bringing magic back to her world, and when the young Prince comes to her village, she hides her magic from him so the King does not force them to marry in order to have magic users in the royal bloodline. Mae, the Prince, and her best friend in the world (which just happens to be a rare white stag) end up on a journey together through the magical and frightening Waerg Woods where they encounter life-threatening situations at every turn. Mae struggles to hide her secret while at the same time using her powers to get them through the deadly and supernatural forest with their lives.
The best thing about this book is Dalton’s level of imagination. The Waerg Woods are beautiful, and the creatures that live within them are completely original and fantastical. I love the forest’s allure combined with its danger, and the wonders that it contains never become stale to the reader. The castle is also extremely original, and adds a bit of steampunk into the story. The plot is fast-paced, and it engages the reader through the entire book. Despite its fairy-tale tone, the story is very original, and includes twists that I never would have guessed.

The idea of one person holding all of the magic and then being forced to marry some prince, well… I love the idea of tension between characters. It makes future love triangles and relationships all the much better!

Alright, so this book is fantastic. No really. I jumped into it a little skeptical because of the first sentences but it really drew me in and held me long into the middle. GAH. That forest is just the scariest place ever, and I love it. I really like the idea of all of the creatures that inhabit the forest having a normal front but hiding some deadly or terrible secret underneath. And then there’s the strange beast with the clicking noise… I won’t tell you any more about it, but I’m super curious as to what its significance will be in the next book. The plot is gorgeous, the people that come into play are interesting and sometimes more than scary, and the feels are just. So many. So many feels.

The first-person narrative present-tense makes WHITE HART really fast paced and is probably the reason I had trouble getting into it at first, but once I immersed myself in it, the speed was nice and kept me interested and desperate to know how things would go from there on in.

White Hart is a phenomenal story. There's magic, a prince, a haunted forest, and frightening creatures all waiting inside. I love that the hero of the story, and the one doing most of the saving, is a girl. Mae doesn't always think of herself as strong, but she's smart and resourceful when it's needed most. I loved her relationship with her stag, Anta. I'm always more attached to a character that has a good bond with a favorite animal.

Prince Casimir, on the other hand, was not what I would call your typical fantasy prince. He wasn't the amazing good hero saving the day, but he also wasn't the evil prince out to destroy the world. He just...was. The only thing he really seemed to have a strong opinion on was that he had to marry the craft-born girl - who he believes to be Ellen.

Much of this story takes place in the Waerg Woods. It's full of creatures - some I had heard of and some I hadn't, but all had a very unique twist. I absolutely loved the birds!!! They had the perfect creepy factor going for them. The groups of people they encounter in the woods are also very diverse and really help to push Mae along her emotional journey.

This story had plenty of action and was a very quick read. It does end with one heck of a cliffhanger though and I don't see a release date for book two yet.
