Serena Harlowe always knew her place.
A foundling placed with the tutor of Illedrian royalty, she grew to be a talented fighter. After rising to the rank of lieutenant in the royal army, she proves her worth and thwarts the attempted assassination of the man she loves.
The selfless act will change her life forever and start a chain of events that will unlock her hidden past.
This was just great! I truly loved these characters, their sass and attitude really made me like them and feel more connected lol. The trials, the choices (which I TOTALLY screamed at Serena for!) made it more realistic. People don't make the perfect choice the first time around, ad I really enjoyed reading a fantasy story with imperfect characters. The plot is good, very interesting, and I thoroughly enjoyed spending my time in this world! Another to add to my Definitely Continuing Series list!
I wasn't entirely keen on the narrator, which is a personal thing. The strong emphasis every time there was, "he" or "she" bugged me. I'm not sure why. At first I thought the word may have been in italics in the writing, but it was pretty much Every. Single. Time. This is a thing that may not bother anyone else, though! Otherwise, her voice and accent are quite pleasing.
I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys fantasy, dragons, and romance.
