I have mixed feelings when it comes to this novel. It was such an easy a quick read like most of L.P. Dover’s books are to me. Lately I have been in this book slump where I only want to read paranormal novels so this came out handy. Anyway I’m very picky when it comes to reading about fae so yeah once again I have mixed feelings with this.
Anyway this book is about the oldest princess of the summer fae Calista who just become old enough to get her own guardian. It is tradition for when every royal princess turns 21 they get their own guardian. Someone who would die protecting them. Now to choose the correct guardian the guards have to fight each other until last one stands. Off course they don’t kill each other. They always make a big deal about choosing the guardians so every fae comes from all over the land of the fae to see who Callista’s guardian will be. That is where she sees Ryder Prince of the winter fae for the first time. It is told that these two are the beginning of a prophecy where they can save the Land of the Fae from great evil. This dark sorcerer has his sight set on Callista and he want her to become his dark queen right after he took nearly all her power. Now Ryder and Callista did not think them the beginning of the prophecy. They figured that out after the first kiss. I mean who would think something like that would happen the moment they kissed, it was shocking to say the least.
Anyway there are a few things that I did not like about this book. I mean this book was enjoyable and I did read it one day but as I said somethings just annoyed me.
First was I really did not like that instant love going on. I mean I have read a lot of book with insta love but this instant love was just damn weird in my eyes. Who in their right mind would ask for the person’s hand in marriage less than two days after they met. Seriously there is something called dating!
Second thing is you want to marry your girl but yet you don’t trust her! That is one reason why you should get to know the girl first before you think of marrying. And I mean with time you learn to trust. This guy had some trust issues… he trust the wrong guy even when he suspected there was something wrong with his friend and knowing that, he still did not trust Callista even after she told him she has no feelings for Merrick, her best friend and guardian.
Third thing is that the two men in her life did not even listen to Callista and because of that very reason, she did the only thing she could think of at the time so they would stop fighting each other and that was tying them up with her earth magic. Now that is the reason she was put in such danger.
Those are the main reasons why I could not go higher with the rating. So basically this is a good book but it would be one of the books that you either love or hate. I found it enjoyable so I wonder how the other books will be in the series. I will get to the other books soon…. I hope. So yes you need to reserve judgement on this book and read it yourselves because I don’t know what you like but for me I would reread it again because I did like it I just wish some of the issues I had could have changed.
