Great Story and Characters
Fall of the Dragon Prince (The Forgotten... Fall of the Dragon Prince (The Forgotten Heirs Trilogy) - Dan Allen

King Toran was able to do the impossible and join the five realms. The destiny of each realm is tied to each of his hidden heirs. Now that the king is dead, his enemies are gathering to destroy any heirs. It’s now up to a self-appointed librarian to unravel the mystery.

I liked this book more than I thought I would. Everything was written in great detail. I loved being pulled into the story of Terith and the journey he went through. I look forward to reading the next book in this saga.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

Prince of the Blood - Raymond E. Feist

Thoroughly enjoyed this book.It was the fantasy w/o the mystical dragons,but there was magic.And to my surprise there was a mystery involving a death.  

Although it's really a coming of age story of two brothers it is mainly focused on.

They are the sons of the Prince of Krondor!

Prodigy Prince Spoiler Free Review
Prodigy Prince (The Seven Covenant) (Volume 1) - Natasha Sapienza

 

Prodigy Prince is the first book in a new YA Fantasy series, the Seven Covenant, by Natasha Sapienza. 

 

Rating: 4.5 Stars 

 

Zephoris is a place of peace and harmony… or at least it was. Prince Nuelle discovers not all is as it seems when his entire life is turned upside down in one day. Traveling to the knight academy our young hero has his destiny thrust upon him: it’s up to him and his six prodigies to defeat the evil Antikai.

 

Reading Prodigy Prince is quite literally stepping into another world. Sapienza’s worldbuilding is epic and unique complete with magic, monsters and evil henchmen. Like any story with a new world, stepping into it takes some getting used to. However, the Tribe Guide and the Creature Guide provide ample knowledge whenever something new is introduced into the story.

 

It was quite easy falling in love with the array of characters in Prodigy Prince. There is a slew of characters in this story and it would have been very easy for each new character to appear to be a static, boring person. That is not the case in this novel. I felt that each character introduced had their own unique personality which was explored upon in great detail. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series to see where further development can take these characters.

 

The plot was fast-paced. Every page I turned it seemed like something new was happening; there was always some action and hardly a dull moment within the pages of this book. This story wasn’t typical, the plot turned and spun in new directions that I couldn’t even see what was coming next. I enjoyed being surprised.

 

I recall shouting when I reached the end of the novel. Whether that was for joy, sadness, surprise or horror, I’ll leave that spoiler out. I was in awe at the ending and I am very excited to see where the next books in the series will lead.

 

I’d recommend this novel to anyone who loves high fantasy, adventures, and/or fast-paced reads.

 

(Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review)

Review: The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air #1) by Holly Black
The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air) - Holly Black

And Cardan is even more beautiful than the rest. I hate him more than all the others. I hate him so much that sometimes when I look at him, I can hardly breathe.

 

Jude was seven years old when her parents were murdered and she and her two sisters were stolen away to live in the treacherous High Court of Faerie. Ten years later, Jude wants nothing more than to belong there, despite her mortality. But many of the fey despise humans. Especially Prince Cardan, the youngest and wickedest son of the High King.

 

To win a place at the Court, she must defy him–and face the consequences.

 

In doing so, she becomes embroiled in palace intrigues and deceptions, discovering her own capacity for bloodshed. But as civil war threatens to drown the Courts of Faerie in violence, Jude will need to risk her life in a dangerous alliance to save her sisters, and Faerie itself.

 

 

This book got so much hype and I must say the hype is well deserved, in my opinion.

I really enjoyed this book and everything about it.  It is well written, fast paced and fun, thrilling roller-coaster ride.

I loved the world that Holly Black has created, an awesome mix of faerie land with yet a touch of the modern world as we know it. We get a great deal of fairie and its daily life which at times does not seem so different than ours. School, work, politics and the daily grind is the same in fairie as it would be here. Just a bit different and with different views on life, mortal or fae.

I just liked everything about the world.

I also really enjoyed all the characters. I never was sure to love or to hate them. Often both.

I loved Jude, our main character. She is feisty. Smart, cunning and despite being terrified all the time she never gives up. Never shows it .  She never takes the easy route (like leaving to the mortal world) and never stops fighting.  But she still has moments of stupidity, and where she seems power hungry and selfish but that made me like her even more. I loved her relationship with her sisters and Oak. The good, the bad and the ugly.

Madoc, I wasn’t sure if I should love him or hate him , and when the book ended I still didn’t know if I should love him or hate him. Don’t get me wrong it is made clear within the first five pages that he is indeed very cruel, with killing their parents and so. But throughout the book you can’t help to like him, the way he cares for them whether they are his kids or not and even though they are mortal . Well her and Taryn.

Cardan, the cruel prince. Well he is cruel all right, But of course he is also charming and beautiful and there is so much more to him. And honestly I can’t wait to read more about him in future books. I want to know more why he is that way who and what made him that way. I also want to hug him and tell him that everything will be okay. Again he is someone I loved to hate and hated to love.

Overall, this book was just amazing and even better than I thought it be. I absoltly loved it.

It is funny yet dark, with plenty of betrayal, lies and deceive with just the right amount of romance, humor and snark.  It was just the perfect mix of everything that keeps yu asking for more. Every time you thing you have it all figured out everything spins you in a new direction so that you will not see the surprising end coming, I loved it and can’t wait to see what will happen next.

I rate it full 5 ★

 

 

Some of my favorite quotes

 

“What could I become if I stopped worrying about death, about pain, about anything? If I stopped trying to belong? Instead of being afraid, I could become something to fear.”

 

***

 

“I am going to keep on defying you. I am going to shame you with my defiance. You remind me that I am a mere mortal and you are a prince of Faerie. Well, let me remind you that means you have much to lose and I have nothing. You may win in the end, you may ensorcell me and hurt me and humiliate me, but I will make sure you lose everything I can take from you on the way down. I promise you this is the least of what I can do.”

 

***

 

“I have lied and I have betrayed and I have triumphed. If only there was someone to congratulate me.”

 

***

 

“Let's have a toast. To the incompetence of our enemies.”

 

***

 

“But I will not stand in front of your happiness. I will not even stand in front of misery that you choose for yourself.”
