From Goodreads: An adoptee raised in a foreign land, sixteen-year-old Lianne was content with her life as handmaiden to the queen, until a spell cast on her at birth activated. Now she's filled with uncontrollable rage and access to magic she thought had been bled from her people years ago. Even her years of secret training in elite hand-to-hand combat and meditation can’t calm the fires raging inside her.
Her heart is torn between two boys, the one she’s always loved and the one who always ignored her. But when the kingdom threatens to tear itself apart due to rumors surrounding the queen’s alleged affair, who will Lianne protect and who will she destroy?
My Review: I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to the author Megg Jensen and the publisher, DarkSide Publishing.
This book was enjoyable to read. Full of non-stop action and some romance and suspense. This book kept me guessing till the end who to trust. I really enjoyed Leanne's strong will and the struggle she faces as her life takes an unexpected turn at the age of sixteen. Her inner turmoil with her struggle to find the truth of her people is as believable as the love triangle. Well written and deals wonderfully with the human emotions that I don't see in most books. This was a fast, quick and enjoyable read.
