Product Description

Review

"A melding of historical romance and fantasy, much like Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. This enthralling story combines magic and realism as its excellent plot reaches out with great depth of emotion, heart-stopping action and characters easy to care about wrapped in a passionate love story. 4 1/2 Stars" - RT Book Reviews

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Kathryne Kennedy has again managed to bring a world to the reader that is brimming with wonderful fantasy ingredients like elemental magic. It's incorporated in many facets of this world I ventured in from buildings to social structure creating a fully realized setting. And not only the magic enticed me again, there's a game with rules that transforms England and its inhabitants in to pawns for the all powerful Elven Lords to play with. With an easy flowing writing style I absorbed the back story of how the Elven Lords came to play a cruel game, to concur land and possess the King for their own court...

The first thing that grabbed my attention was how quickly and effortlessly Kathryne Kennedy seemed to create a world, give me a concept of how cruel the Elven Lords were and how they keep immortal boredom away with their games. But with the suppression of the English people the Rebellion against theElven Lords rises. From the first page I could feel the darker tone of this fantasy romance and I couldn't wait to meet the main protagonists. In such a darker setting I always experience the joys in life and romance all the more intense. What I got was a hero that had me at hello.

Dominic Raikes is the Elven Lord Mor'dred's bastard son, with strong magic flowing in his veins he is the kind of leading male that carries a story by the sheer force of his presence and personality. He is a leader; stern, aloof, distant, in control, and sometimes he gave his all not to be liked. Still, as the story progressed I got a revealing look at another side of him. The side that surfaced when he let go of his rigid control. A gentle, compassionate side that emanated a hunger to give and receive affection.

I really enjoyed this story. I hadn't read any of Kathryne Kennedy's books before, but the world she created drew me in straight away. The Elves here have come through a gateway from Elfhame because they grew bored of peace, so have taken over England and divided it into kingdoms. Far from the ethereal and friendly Elves of Tolkien's worlds, the Elves from Eflhame are much colder creatures, but it seems their half-human offspring are too 'human' for their likes. The Fire Lord thinks his half-elven son, general Dominic Raikes, possesses more magical abilities than he's letting on (which would make him a threat), and over the years subjects him to trials by magical fire. Because of his father's cold nature, and will to destroy anything he takes an interest in, Dominic has to pretend his new bride (through an arranged marriage) means nothing to him, even though she awakes all-too human feelings in him.
I loved this tale, and hope Kennedy makes a series of it, I'd love to read more about the other kingdoms and their Lords and offspring.

If, like me, you enjoy fantasy/ historical novels with a bit of romance then please be warned - this is a romance novel of the lowest calibre that just happens to be set in a fantasy world. Think Mills & Boon with elves! The female character Cassandra is supposed to be an assasin but is so completely pathetic, mooning about like a wet blanket, and the male character Dominic's soft caring side is illustrated by the fact that he once cared for a puppy. Sick buckets ahoy! Really poor writing and characterization, totally predictable story and a total waste of the paper it was printed on. The cover was nice though!

I m giving it a three star because of the cover and the characters!! I love stories that weave around the elves as nowadays all we get are stories about vampires, demons, shifters and other paranormals!! I found the book by chance and again took the chance of purchasing it as i have been searching books about elves and of course with romance. I know, I know there are Laurel k Hamilton books of Meredith Gentry but I have not really grasp her stories yet.

The story is there but it is a let down i must say. May be because i prefer my heroine to have a bit of spunk!! For goodness sake, Cassandra was supposed to be a trained assassin!!! It should be said that she is a novice assassin! I might as well reread TITHE and IRONSIDE by Holly Black.

Lady Cassandra is married to the Elven Lords champion son, General Dominic Raikes. Cassandra thinks she's married a cold hearted man but he surprises her with the level of tenderness and passion when they're alone in bed. Dominic is determined even when he realises he's started to develop feelings for her to hide them, particularly from his father, as he's ruthlessly exploited his feelings in the past, killing Dominic's best friend Jack on one occasion. Cassandra thinks she's managing to conceal a secret that she's been trained by the rebels as an assassin as is waiting for an opportunity to kill the Elven Lord. Which is the more powerful force in the end - good or evil? Do Dominic and Cassandra fall in love? You'll find out the answers if you dowload and start reading this excellent book, look out for the funny quotes from the dragon, they had me laughing out loud.

Dominic was SUPER HOT - I'd give him 5*. But the rest of the book was a HUGE disappointment.

I read the blurb and was pleased to note that the protagonist is a Female Assassin (I love assassin books). But Lady Cassandra's powers is... DANCING. WTF?!

Then there's the plot, which has bigger holes than crates on the moon. And the romance - it's INSTA-LUST, this so-called trained assassin falls madly in love with her cold groom at the get go. While the groom falls for his supposedly brown wren little bride because she's all wholesome, goodly-good, saves-little-slaves, birds-sing-as-she-walks, flowers-bloom-as-she-talks heroine.

<b>Lady Cassandra</b>: daughter of a Duke who has been trained as an "assassin" to dance, including a deathly dance, which I must say was SO-NOT-IMPRESSIVE. I think she's about 18 years old and apparently has the ability to merge into her background (no idea how she achieves this, we're just told she can).
She's meant to be all fired up over her cause but acts like a swooning, annoying, sanctimonious silly chit who babbles everything to anyone (including her little servant girls).
She claims to want to avoid bring attention to herself but then goes about behaving completely opposite, including annoying the household staff by arrogantly ignoring their hierarchy to hire 2 slave girls (it's cheeky and insulting to the servants).

<b>Dominic The General:</b> super Hottie, cold, unfeeling, and half-elf. He's about 25 and appears to be the only son the Elf Lord has acknowledged. He looks exactly like the Elf Lord but a younger version.
I liked his character, as he isn't a silly little creature, but he also falls for his wife super fast (no gradual love) and for the life of me I can't see why.
