A spellbinding fantasy story… and a fascinating world to escape to! ~InD’tale Magazine
As the king’s only daughter, Ava was supposed to be many things; meek, submissive, and above all, silent. While she dreams of fighting alongside the armies of Ankara, she’s forced to hide her identity behind a veil. It seems her prayers are answered when fate intervenes, allowing Ava to sneak away and join the battle. Yet the tides of war turn on her, leaving the young beauty defeated… her hopes shattered. Her only chance at salvation is Callan, a mysterious black wolf willing to risk everything by hiding her away among his kind. But there are some dangers far more ominous than the snapping jaws of a wolf. Ripped away from the brave Turnskins, Ava is imprisoned by the beguiling Shadow King who fills her head with promises of peace and a haze of passion. Forced to choose between her family, the bond she shares with Callan, and the handsome king’s striking proposal, Ava finds herself torn between duty and desire. When an unthinkable sacrifice is required to save all she holds dear, will Ava accept the crushing demands of taking the crown? Or follow her heart to the forbidden touch she desperately craves?
Sherry’s first book in a fantastic young adult fantasy series is astounding! This is not the first book I have read by her and I patiently await the next.
If you like kingdoms, a badass princess, bad boys and a whole bunch of royal intrigue. This is the book for you!!
Enjoy it as I did. 5 stars goes to Sherry!
I. CAN. NOT. WAIT. FOR. MORE.
