Finnie loses her parents early on in life. Memories of them and their adventures together plague her. Finnie learns of a witch that can transport her to a parallel universe where she will assume the identity of her otherworld twin for a year. Finnie will do anything to see her parents again. And as the adventurer her parents raised her to be, she accepts this adventure with fearless excitement. Little does she know, her twin has kept significant details of her life from her. Once Finnie is introduced to this new world, she is expected to marry the elf and dragon king, Drakkar. Her parents are less than receptive of her, but what can she do? Will she be able to endure a year at the hands of the Drakkar?
What Did I Think?
Oh my gods, this book was everything I needed it to be.. And unlike this novel, this will be short and sweet.
I am quite pleased with Kristen Ashley's entry into the Fantasy genre. If you know anything about my reading preferences, you know that I began my reading addiction in the Fantasy genre, but it was romance that brought me back to habitual reading. To find a novel that merges the two so beautifully, makes my heart beat wildly.
We find our female lead, Finnie, heart broken over the loss of her parents. After hearing of a witch that can transport her to a parallel universe in which her parents are alive, she jumps at the opportunity. Once she arrives in the new world, she finds she was played by her universe twin. She is thrown into marriage with our male lead, the Drakkar, leader of the elves and dragons. He doesn't care for her twin of his world so he treats her less than favorably. After leaving her in his hunting cabin alone, he comes back to find his bride thrived in the face of abandonment. He can't help but take notice and exude pride in her. As king of the elves, he is privy to information of the switch. He decides to bind Finnie to his world. She doesn't know. We get to see them fall in love only to be rescinded. Can their love surpass their betrayal of one another?
The only critical point I will make regarding this book is its length. It is too long. And I know why.. Ashley was so wrapped up in describing the new universe and its surroundings, that she got carried away. If Drakkar didn't have so many dwellings, perhaps we wouldn't have as many pages of descriptive establishments and unique locations. I realize it is difficult to work the creation of a universe into a series first book and have it merge seamlessly with the story, so I take one star and move on. ...because the universe she painted was amazing and we can't dwell on the extra pages like that. Plus I like this book. A whole freaking lot..
Listen to me, whoever you are.. there are elves, dragons, witches, parallel universes, adventures, betrayals, talking animals, love, love, and more love.. Read it. Read. It.

Finny and Frey are characters that have depth to them. You fall in love with them a little more with each page. The reason behind Finny being in that world is heartbreaking and I wish that this was possible in real life because there are so many people I wish I had more time with. Frey at first comes off as this mean jerky kind of guy but pretty quickly you can’t help but love him. There is one part that I may or may not have wanted to beat him for being a total idiot, and I feel like that every time I read it. The chemistry, love and emotions these two share will keep you glued to your kindle or book from the beginning until the end.
This series really is magical and Wildest Dreams is a great start. If you are looking for a romance with a fantasy feel with magic and just overall feel of romance and adventure then this is one to have on your TBR lists!
Well ,I am here to say I was a FOOL!!!! Of course, there was the requisite APLHA hero. Obviously there's a strong willed, independent spirit embodied in our heroine. What in all that I hold dear was I so trepidatious about???
I feel its pertinent to mention that throughout this book you need to remember you are reading about a parallel universe where things are done very, VERY different. Sometimes our brooding and powerful hero Frey Drakkar could be a condescending, overbearing, temperamental jack-wagon. But I implore you to see it from his views... he makes some unilateral decisions for his Wee Finnie that really made me mad. But, as the story unfurls you can't help but fall for the big galute anyway. I loved how he cared for and tended to his Finnie.
And lets talk about Finnie... she was childlike in her fascination with the magical properties of this new world she's traveled to and it's infectious to the reader. She was a vivid character for sure and had a will of steel. Finnies love for adventure shined throughout the story which made her a perfect match for her marauder mate. I think I adore KA's heroines almost( COME ON IT IS A KA BOOK- BEST HEROES EVER!!!!) as much as I did her hero.
So I must say to you, if you've not read either a Kristen Ashley book(WHAT????) or any type of PNR... this very well may be a great jumping off point.
Happy Reading~ Sherry
