*****4 STARS*****

I really enjoyed reading Orphan's Blade. It's not just a regular historical romance. The story takes place in a magical world where minstrels have the power to manipulate people and creatures through music. There are also zombies!

If you're looking for romance, this might not satisfy your cravings. I myself usually prefer stories with lots of heat. Here, the kissing was extremely minimal, but the adventure really won me over.

This is actually 3.5 stars.

This is the second book in a series but I haven’t read the first one and I thought it stands well as a stand alone.

I really liked the idea of minstrels who can take part on a battle with their harps. The music affects people and like a dream spells and stuff. I thought it was so cool.

I liked Valoria and she was a great heroine. She stood up to Brax, who is a battle hungry prince and only thinks about war, and cared for the common people. I liked Nathaniel and his relationship with

I though I was going to love this one a lot more than I did. I think I could have liked it a lot more than I did if it hadn't ended so quickly. I felt like the story was just getting good and then all of a sudden Brax is saying "you're free" and then she's making out with Nathaniel on the ground. I was like um.. What the hell just happened?

Besides that I loved the story. I loved Valoria, She was a fantastic heroine. She knew how to

Aubrie grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over again until she could recite and reenact every single scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek the Next Generation-favorite character was Data by far-, and Indiana Jones. But, her all time favorite movie was The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.
