By sun and candlelight was a wonderful book that gives the reader the ability to read more about Rowan. In this book Rowan has to make some hard decisions which makes for a very interesting novella. I would highly suggest it if you enjoyed if I speak true. Brooks was able to give the reader for a better look on Rowan life in this short novella. I feel like this is a perfect time to get a perfect place to put this novella, giving me the ability to read more about the story in a different perspect ...more

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

I have loved this series from the very first book 'If I Speak True', and once again in this novella Jessica Brooks has produced something fantastic. This short story coming from Rowan's perspective takes you right into Ambrosia and into the inner workings of his life and the political state of his kingdom. I don't usually read books with a fantasy element but in th

Book received from author in exchange for honest review
Seeing into Rowan's eyes shows the love that he feels for Dahlia.

Of course, this wasn't focused on Rowan and Dahlia but rather Rowan's life as the Prince. I am definitely adding him onto my book friends list.

If you loved the first book, you'll love the novella. Reading from his perspective gives a bigger insight on his mindset. His kind heart.

He worries about those ar

Yay for Rowan’s point of view! I had not read the blurb for this novella before starting to read it, so it was a surprise to find out that Jessica was giving us the opportunity to get inside the head of Rowan. In If I Speak True we get to meet and fall in love with this handsome, strong & charming person, but we don’t really get to know him on a closer level (he always was this dark cloud of mystery despite the many times Dahlia, our heroine, meets up with him).

I think I’m more in love with

Review

‘By Sun and Candlelight’ is written in ROWAN’S PERSPECTIVE! Just a little reminder in case you haven’t noticed it in the blurb and for crazily excited wackos like me! I was really happy to FINALLY get inside that mysterious, good-looking, dark, wavy-haired, green-eyed, swoon-worthy, princely head of his. A highly recommended read as it gives you some important clues for ‘Open Thy Heart’.
Like the blurb says,

Rowannnn! (And by that we all know I mean Briscooooe!) I thought this was a great little novella, told from Rowan's point of view, that really added to the story happening in this series. Now, it doesn't have to be read in order to still understand what happens in the books, but it was nice.

I'm very glad that this was from Rowan's POV, since he is still such a mysterious character. We get to see what he is thinking, how he feels. Rowan is nearly of age, and the heir to the throne. That comes wit
