Ew kingdom Now Adren the last princess of the vanuished realm of Menarm finds herself alone in a world where women live in the shadows of men Not only must she battle her enemies but also a truth that could obliterate her last hope for happiness and bring dishonor to all those whom she hold dear On her uest she finds unlikely allies in a powerful prince and a defiant mercenary only to be devasta. I started this book with high hopes I liked the book blurb description and was up for an Elven adventure However this story fell a little short The beginning was easy to start with but then the timeline jumps around a bit and I had trouble following who did what when Now if you get past that the story settles on 16 year old Princess AdrenInitially I really liked her character Her mother dies shortly after we meet her and Adren’s kingdom is in ruins I worried she wouldn’t be able to save herself let alone her kingdom But she has been taking sword fighting lessons from a master Donian Now he was a fun character I loved his harsh nature and no nonsense training He’s merciless in her training and she picks up the art uickly Now I did find it a bit too convenient that she mastered sword training so uickly but it’s necessary for the story to progressAdren must venture out on a uest to find allies but her little world is one where women are kept safe and secure and don’t learn to fight with swords and gallivant around the countryside Initially I found her solution to this problem endearing because who wouldn’t want to put on a mask and pretend to be someone else especially if you have to kill anyone Still I was a little dismayed that in this fictional world ladies in general have very little to do with the plotAdren hasn’t spent any time with elves and now that she’s met some she’s fascinated by them Here’s another part of the story that didn’t work so well for me We know that she was raised with stories about elves and there’s obviously contact and trade between humans and elves and yet dear little Adren is totally blank on Elvish factoids Really Sigh So I felt that contradicted what we learned earlier Then when she learns why her ears are the shape they are well it was just a lot of drama for no reasonStill there’s plenty of action and armor and sword fighting and heroes I liked all those bits Then we have the love story Adren loves a certain person and then yet another person is falling in love with Adren unbeknownst to her Again I felt the love story was a whole lot of drama for very little entertainment Also the wrap up to that romance in this book was a little cliched and I expected that twist well before it was revealedAll together the tale held potential to be a fun high adventure but fell short with some inconcise writing and over done drama 35 starsThe Narration George Tintura did an OK job with this narration He sounded interested in the story all the way through the book He does make an effort to do accents and keep character voices distinct but they kind of go in and out His grumpy voice for Donian is pretty good and most of the time he does a believable 16 year old Princess Adren He also makes a believable snobbish elf 45 stars➜ Susan received a free copy of this book from the author Her opinions are 100% my own
