Air Kingdom—Sydney &Ryan
They are forever…
Sydney Field’s life is a rollercoaster on steroids with one constant—Ryan Edwardson.
Best friends since a projectile crayon incident in kindergarten, Sydney and Ryan have stuck it out together through thick and thin, pranks and rants, and anything in between.
One kiss changes everything…
As Sydney does her best to sort through her new found feelings for Ryan and mend what she broke in their friendship, the rollercoaster makes a complete one-eighty, unveiling Ryan’s lifelong secrets.
Thrust into a world chalk full of royalty and kingdoms and wielders, Sydney starts to wonder what’s up or down, right or wrong, reality or fantasy.
In a twist of events, Sydney finds herself enveloped in a world she never knew she belonged to. Friends become enemies, strangers become her survival, and love becomes the ultimate price.
Okay, so I bought this book based on a couple of different factors. One was that it came to my attention with the author requested a review. No, she didn’t request from me specifically, and I was never part of the conversation, but it DID look pretty good when I saw the blurb. The second, and most DEFINITELY not the least: Look at that amazingly gorgeous cover!!! I mean, it’s just beautiful! Definitely one of my favorites.
As for the story itself, I found the plot to be quite intriguing and unique. The characters were well defined and their own person (I’ve read some where I mixed up people because they felt interchangeable). Unfortunately, I just couldn’t connect with any of them. They were likable enough (except for those that were hateable enough), but I just couldn’t FEEL them, I guess. The only real emotion I felt for them was Howie. Gawds, I loathe that jack@$$.
There were some grammar errors (ex: “click” instead of “clique”), but there was nothing major there, this is just to let potential readers know they exist, I guess. Okay fine, so grammar is important to me.
The flow of the story overall was pretty good, and I do intend to continue reading this series. Maybe my connection problems were due to just meeting the characters? It’s always possible! I hope for more development and to learn more about the different Kingdoms in the next book.
If you like fantasy and kind-of-a-jerk alpha males, I think you’ll like one!
