The actual story and the characters are excellent and if it was written normally I'd happily give it 4 stars, but I got very close to abandoning the book and it's taken me longer than average to read.
I found the story fascinating and completely captivating, was unable to put it down. Read it in a day and then when I finished it, I was sad it was done! Couldnt recommend it more.
The characters were fleshed out in great detail, maybe a little too much, as I became bored with the continuous descriptions of Skylar’s gowns and jewels. I[‘m not a clothes horse and I felt they weren’t necessary, thought I understand Dunnewin was trying to set the stage. Even though the characters were well-developed, I had a hard time feeling of them. I had more feelings for the villain, Cross Lutherous, than I did for what happened to Skylar. I believe some of that was the writing style, a little too passive for my tastes. Also, there were issues with sentence structures that didn’t read well and some misused words like shutter for shudder. Really?
What I really liked, was how Dunnewin built the back story via dreams/memories. But even these became redundant. I just wanted the plot to get going. I finally became more involved with Skylar and Harlin once we spent more time in the present, and less in the past. Then I found myself rooting for her and Harlin, reading faster and faster until the end. I felt the latter part of the book was written better and the ending was perfect. Now, I want to see how Skylar will defend her kingdom against the Bellumortis.
If you like fanciful Steampunk stories, with princesses and knights, I recommend this story. I give it 4 feathers.
What a fantastic tale!!
A romance between a Knight and a Princess Royal, but one that goes down a very rough path. This isn't a tale of sweetness and light, but it's an absolutely fantastic story.
What I liked: Believable characters - A Princess who actually displays proper human emotion. A Knight who will train his Princess to fight for survival. An enemy who likes to pull strings. Normally I don't enjoy stories that leap back and forth in time but for this tale it works extremely well and everything fits together perfectly.
I would definitely read more of this saga - this first book has me well and truly hooked.
