By Melissa Petreshock
I don’t think I can express just how much I loved this book!
The cover is what got my interest at first. It’s just TOO pretty to ignore. I love fantasy novels! Like, LOVE! But I usually prefer a more historical-type or otherworldly setting. What shocked me about this book is that, while it’s set in a futuristic “sovereign” America, the novel had an almost historical feel. The world in which Ms. Petreshock has created is a society full of archaic social conventions, where women have little to no power, and a hierarchy of male supernatural beings make all the rules. It was fascinating to learn about this world, and the author did such a great job at covering every little detail of this society so that it actually becomes believable.
My first thought as I read through this book is that it starts out like a supernatural, futuristic version of The Bachelorette. It may sound a little crazy at first, this woman must choose between three suitors, but it all makes sense within this world. And once you get to know the three suitors, you won’t be able to put the book down.
I also liked how the author gave each character his or her own distinct voice. Each character had their own way of speaking, whether modern or ancient, their own accent, and their own thought process that stayed very consistent throughout the story.
This book is engaging, entertaining, and has the perfect amount of heat to entice romance readers and fantasy readers alike. I am also SO glad that the author rounded out the story and gave me answers!
I will definitely recommend this book to others and keep an eye out for more from this author.
