Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
Prince Aidan's life was mapped out. He would be the King of Therin when his father died. He would protect the people, lead the army to fight for the Kingdom and he liked to think that he would be remembered for his skills as a warrior and strategist. The arrival of Tarienne at Castle Therin changed everything. In the space of three years, she managed to turn his world upside down, challenging everything Aidan believed in. Charged with protecting Prince Aidan so that he could fulfill a prophecy that he knew nothing of, Tarienne didn't expect to become his friend and confidante, nor be part of a ruse, feigning courtship with the classically handsome Prince. Despite her relationship with Aidan, the passion that Daien, Aidan's dearest friend and one of the King's Guards, ignites within Tarienne from the moment they meet, complicates her life at court. Can she keep her magical abilities a secret, maintain the pretence of loving Aidan, convince him of his role in the prophecy, and, make the breathtakingly handsome warrior, Daien, aware of her interest, all under the ever watchful scrutiny of an unforgiving King, who is vehemently opposed to magic?

Being a male reader, of course, I’d prefer that the A-story were the B-story and the focus was a little more on the plot to ensure the king lived to fulfill the prophecy, and so restore the balance of magic to the kingdom under his dominion; in short, more battle scenes, and a few less scenes turning on lustful desire. That said, the world building is vivid and compelling, the story fast-moving, and the author’s command of classic tropes and motifs associated with epic fantasy undeniable. It was easy to visualize what was going on at all times and to immerse myself in this fantasy world. And male readers, especially YA male readers, have no reason to feel ostracized from the story with plenty to sink their teeth into in terms of medieval life challenges and ordeals, from the boar hunt that opens the book and is part of the hook sequence, to the jousting tournaments, up to and including the richly portrayed battles when they do finally come.
In terms of my own reading experience, I would rate this book 4 stars, meaning I really liked it. But adjusting for the fact that I’m not the target audience, it was easy to go with the 5 star rating.
