Strong and adventurous Gwendolyn Barnes longs to be a knight like her chivalrous brothers. However, that is not an option for her, not even in the Arthurian-inspired Eden where she dwells. Her parents view her only as a marriage pawn, and her domineering father is determined to see her wed to a brutish man who will break her spirit.
When handsome, good-hearted Allen of Ellsworth arrives in Edendale searching for his place in the world, Gwendolyn spies in him the sort of fellow she could imagine marrying. Yet fate seems determined to keep them apart. Tournaments, intrigue, and battles–along with twists and turns aplenty–await these two as they struggle to find love, identity, and their true destinies.
Wow! I was truly impressed! Any book that would have a heroine in a unique role like Mulan and Joan of Arc is definitely something I want to read!
Just to let you all know that this novel was even better than her first book! That is something to be exciting about. I was never into YA fiction but if I were to recommend a YA fiction novel this would absolutely be the one!
The adventure,drama,and romance were all enchanting in this novel. She could have went on with this story. The writing flowed perfectly and all the characters were very interesting to read about. Also in this novel the readers gets a glimpse of what happened to the previous characters in the first novel.
I highly recommend this novel for anyone who loves YA fiction and also enjoys clean romance with spectacular drama.
I’m highly anticipating anything from Dina Sleiman in the future. The book cover is just amazing isn’t it? (4.5 stars)
