MISTWOOD by Leah Cypess is a wonderfully intriguing story of a girl, Isabel, who has been claimed by a prince- soon to be King, claiming she's a powerful Shifter who's now bound to protect him. Problem is Isabel can't remember anything much less her duty or powers.

As MISTWOOD unfold we learn a lot about Isabel and her inner turmoil, and we learn to love her tough character, but although the story is appealing and interesting the story did feel a bit flat. And I'll tell you why: world-building. It is a key ingredient in any story and with fantasy that heavily relies on this ingredient many wonderful stories just fall a bit short. I wanted to know more about the Mistwoods, and the kingdom, and even the supporting cast but sadly I was left wanting more.

That is not to say at all that I didn't enjoy the story. On the contrary I devoured it bit by bit! Cypess has created a wonderfully complex character and the mystery behind Isabel's memory loss made for a fully captivating tale! It was truly unique and engaging and for that I highly recommend it!

I loved Isabel. And despite her lost and tough character, she had great passion and love! Although the supporting characters were sparse each one of them surprised me. But best of all, Cypess surprised me with a truly wonderful ending that made me sigh with relief! It was truly perfect!

Fans of Meghan Whalen Turner and Kristin Cashore will love this book!
