A city in ruin.
A forest filled with secrets.
One girl with the power to change it all.

Trapped in a mundane existence in the heart of a deadly forest, Ela often imagined what life must be like away from the trees. A world without rules and restrictions, with the freedom to do anything. She’d be safe from the ever-lurking threat of the Bowen Elders, the men who seemed so

An entertaining story overall, even if the plot as a whole felt a little bit like deja-vu. I wished for a bit more of world-building to make it more memorable. The characters were interesting and I especially liked the flashbacks all thourough the story to get to know them deeper, but I wished for a bit more, especially to be able to grow closer to the main character.
Full review coming soon on Drizzle & Hurricane Books :)

I was disappointed with the premise and the characters. It was all too predictable and a fantasy cliché. Maybe it’s because I’ve read a lot of fantasy stories and started to see all the plots repeating themselves, but in a few words: we have the main character who has a guy best friend, suddenly she wants to go to a kingdom so badly but she is just a mundane girl. What a surprise! While she was running away, she meets the prince of

I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for a fair review.
I'd give this book a solid 3.5 stars. It was completely adequate, though not overall dazzling. The characters were a little 2D, but it was better than it could have been because they were enjoyable. The novel followed a basic, generic fantasy plot line, and even though it did a good job, there wasn't very fresh or innovative. It did get good near the end, which is what bumped it that extra .5 star. I'd recommend it to anyone

Disclaimer: I won this book on Goodreads.

I enjoyed this book. Even though it has over 400 pages, it didn't take long to read. The story contained some action and much humor mixed in with the fantasy and the occasional tragedy. There were some unexpected twists. Usually, I am not a fan of love triangles, but I suppose they must be excused in cases of young people who are not sure what they want. Also, I liked this one better than most.
