The end of an Empire, The rise of a Queen
Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and upon Emory’s arrival she will discover she is the long lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne.
With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.
Some things are better left in the shadows.
The reader is immediately thrown into the plot of this book and immersed in this world of suspense. It took me a little bit to get my bearing but when I did I found myself in love with the world, the characters and the plot. This book is told from three perspectives and while this can be a little off putting it allows for a all encompassing view of the world of Kiero.
The multiple perspectives allows for an understanding of the cast of characters that make up this book. As the book moved on there were more chapters from Emory’s point of view as she was the main protagonist of the novel. The reader could empathise with her as she is thrust into this dangerous world. She soon finds her sealegs and is able to hold her own.
Just when I was loving this book it was over and while I enjoyed the quick read I want more from this fantasy world. I love the magic, the characters and the plot and am in desperate need of more from this world.
