If you’ve been searching for a tough, bad ass heroine who swears like a pirate and has quips for days - call off the search!

High fae, Ara, is one of the POV in this epic fantasy set in a world where the high fae are heartless and corrupt and the lesser fae are treated like trash.

As Ara’s reclusive life is flipped on its head, we follow her quest to find out why. Alongside her journey, we follow Temir, a sexy lesser-fae male with stag horns, who is kept by the king due to his power to heal peop

If your thinking of reading this book, DO IT. My book hangover is still so bad after devouring this book. The world that Miranda Lyn created is filled with so much detail it’s hard to put it into words for a quick review, so I’ll do my best.

Two characters, two captivating storylines that will keep you going chapter to chapter to see what will happen with Ara and Temir. Both characters equally enthralling yet different from each other.

You follow Ara, who starts on a dangerous quest to find out

Wow! Have you ever found one of those books that just hooks you from page one? Well, this is one of those books! It’s beautifully written and extremely captivating. The author is a master at pulling your emotional strings with each character and the challenges they must face. You’ll scream at the bad guys, cheer on the good ones. You’ll cry at the devastation of their losses and smile when they stumble upon good fortune. Do not let this book pass you by without giving it a read. I promise you’ll ...more

This book is EVERYTHING I love and MORE in a book! I was captivated throughout the entire book, i finished it in two days! I loved the MCs inner dialogue, strength and confidence. The world building is fantastic and i really enjoyed watching the characters grow through out the story.
The book is full of humor, drama and action. I can’t wait for the authors next book to come out!

This has probably been one of the toughest reviews I have ever written purely because I loved this book so much that I have struggled to put my feelings into words. If you like Fae, Sarah J. Maas, Holly Black, or a bad ass heroine, then this book is for you! Prepare yourself to be captivated by this amazing story as you won't want to pass this book up.

First off, I made the mistake of beginning this book right before going to bed as it usually takes a few chapters for me to get invested in a new

LOVE. This was just the Fae book I needed to pull me out of my reading slump! I love the world, I love every single character and now I have a book hangover and cannot wait for book two! Definitely read this!!!

Wow! What a ride! This book was fantastic! It was everything I wanted in a Fae novel. Miranda creates a completely beautiful world with such detail you feel like you're right there with the characters. The story follows Ara (High Fae) and Temir (Lesser Fae), and their different points of view. You will fall in love with all the characters, their inner dialogue, and especially their witty banter. Be prepared to have all the feels in this book because you get them! I would dare say you might need ...more

This was a much needed solid fae read. I didn't realize how oversaturated I was on SJM's fae world ( in reading and bookstagram). I was craving a new fae fantasy and this fit the bill.

Told in two POV's the story follows Ara ( high fae) and Temir ( lesser fae). Two people on the opposites sides of the social status who want the same fight back. Ara is on a quest to find out who she really is after finding out the hard way that her parents trained her from birth for a reason. A very bi

What a book! I was hooked in right away and got lost the adventure with Ara and Temir. The world and characters are so well crafted that I fell in love with them immediately. We get to view the world through two very different points of view, Ara a high fae, and Temir a lesser fae and it really helps to get you fully immersed. The author does an exceptional job of really giving us a wide range of emotions along the way as you will loathe the villains, cheer on the protagonists, and enjoy meeting ...more

“The sun will set on this day, whether you will it or not. It will rise tomorrow on a new day and you will once again start anew. The decisions you made in the past will not stop the sun or the moon or the stars from their dance across the sky. You must always move on, son. Hard as it may be. Now, let that moment pass and come back to this one. There’s a beauty waiting for you.”

This book takes you to the Fae realm of Alewyn. Told from alternating perspectives, this adult fantasy book will take y

Do you like reading books about the Fae? You really need to check out this book! It gets you from the very beginning to where you are trying to focus on work but you can't because you need to know what happens next! I really couldn't put this book down.

You get to read from the perspective of 2 different characters and it is wonderful. You get two different sides, one high fae (Ara) and one lesser fae (Temir) and really get to experience the world fully because of it. I loved both characters and

Blood and Honor was just the fantasy I needed!

Ara is my favorite type of female main character - strong, smart, sassy, and real. She's a bad a** in all the ways I admire and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her.

Temir is an awesome male lead and I'm interested to see where his character goes in the series. My only gripe (in a good way) was that I was waiting for Temir and Ara to cross paths, so I'm hoping to see that in the future.

The romance from B&H is light in this book and there's a lot o
