Product description

About the Author

Rachel was born in Buffalo, NY but grew up in Burlington, NC. Raised by northern parents in the south, she likes to say she got the best of both worlds. Her writing is inspired by classic authors like Jane Austen and Charles Dickens, as well as contemporary ones like JK Rowling and Claire LaZebnik. She loves to read and has been known to spend an entire weekend engrossed in the adventures of her favorite characters. Rachel now lives in Raleigh, NC, but someday hopes to make it to London. She's pretty sure (if reincarnation exists) she was British in another life.

I won this book from Goodreads Giveaway. After scouring the giveaway section of Goodreads, I came upon this book and after a quick review of the summary, I thought it was something difeerent. When I found out that I won, I was happy and looked forward to reading it.

In a world where everyone is assigned a lifemate at birth by the Gods, thirty year-old Honor is still looking for hers. When her new boss, Sedric, points out that her mate probably died before they met, Honor embarks on a quest for closure. She needs to know who her mate was and what he was like so she can move on with her life.

Can I just say, first of all, wow. I never thought I would become hooked to this book. A 253 page read, it was short, but amazing. I zoomed through this book with ernest, wanting to found out what happened next. I loved how unique the plot was and how intriguing the sub plots were. I also loved the different world Rachel created, where everyone had a lark (an incomplete design) somewhere on their body and it only completed when you found your mate. It was a world similar to our own and you could easily relate to. A genius idea!
This book is easy to read and will have you hooked from the start. You will also fall in love with the characters. I hope there will be a sequel :)

My favourite book, so far this year!

Honor’s Lark is Rachel Hamm’s second novel. I was so happy when I received a digital review copy because I loved her debut novel Twenty-Five so much. You can read my review here. I was very excited when I finally had the time to start reading it. I also was kind of nervous and a little bit scared. I had high expectations. Many thoughts were spinning around my head. Will it be as good as the first one? Do I have too high expectations? What will I do when I’m disappointed? I can tell you, I wasn’t disappointed. The novel didn’t hit me like Twenty-Five but I enjoyed reading Honor’s story very much.

Your typical romance love story goes like this: woman meets man, they fall in love, there is a twist towards the end, then they life their happy ever after. End of story. Honor’s Lark is not like that at all. It’s such an unique story. I have never read anything similar to it. It’s actually very difficult to categorize it in any way. It’s a bit of romance, a bit of fantasy but so realistic to our own world though.

Honor Sandavol lives in a world where parents called lifegivers and Gods control your romantic fate by larks. Usually you find your lifemate between the age of 18 and 25. Honor is 30 now and has yet to find her lifemate. That makes her very frustrated, selfish and jealous of everyone around her who has found his/her lifemate yet. Honor works at Taylor & James Consulting and is a team-building specialist. When Sedric Eckland starts his job as her new boss, he recognizes Honor’s unhappiness. They get to know each other and talk about Honor’s lark. Sedric thinks Honor’s lifemate died before they could find each other. He offers to help her to find what she’s looking for. To introduce Sedric to his new work, they travel around the country for business meetings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable read! I am eagerly waiting for the sequel! 3 Aug. 2014
By J. Cribb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What happens when you take the tried and true methods of great scifi/fantasy (simple thought experiment) and masterfully integrate them with the tired, one-dimensional tropes of traditional romance novels?

Rachel Hamm's new book Honor's Lark achieves this by asking the question: "What would a world be like in which ALL relationships are truly fated?" Well, ALMOST all relationships. The main character, Honor, is someone who doesn't fit the mold. She seems lost. How does she adapt to her world? Better question-- How does her world adapt to her?

This book is well-written and well-developed, deftly balancing the expectations of romance readers and fantasy readers. There are no vampires, no meta-humans, no ghosts, and no extra-terrestrial romances. It's a parallel world with just a SINGLE basic modification from our own Universe. What if you knew there was one person out there who you are waiting to find and who is waiting to find you?

At first it's difficult to like Honor. We readers always want to like the main character, especially if we are totally trapped in their heads, subject only to their sole and limited perspective.
As you read between the lines you begin to see the cracks in the 'perfection' of this world. You and Honor meet Sedric, who's a breath of fresh air in spite of his mystery and tragedy.

Then, subtly, your opinion changes about Honor and before you know it you love her and all her flaws. You've made it to the end of the book and you're biting your nails, waiting for the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating Story 21 Sept. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was immediately entranced by the original nature of this story - part fantasy, part romance with a dash of mystery. I love the fact that Honor is a deeply flawed character. From the beginning we see her as ornery, angry and downright sarcastic. But as the story continues, you are given a window into her pain and watch as she tries to piece together the reason she has not found her lifemate. Her life becomes even more complicated as she finds herself attracted to the one person who is helping her to solve this mystery. Each step that she takes brings her closer to life altering decisions about her career, her love life and her beliefs. Ms. Hamm does an excellent job of luring you into her story and leaves you with a degree of uncertainty in the end. I'm eagerly awaiting the sequel!

5.0 out of 5 stars I found myself searching for closure alongside Honor 12 Jun. 2014
By C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It has been years since I carved out time to read a book for pleasure; however, this past year was particularly stressful, so I decided to make time. I selected Honor’s Lark on a friend’s recommendation and I must say this was one of the wisest, if not the only wise, decision of my year. Ms. Hamm has succeeded in creating a work of art that has the ability to speak to readers on multiple levels, or at least it did to me. As a result of the author’s ability to write in such an engaging and evocative manner, I found myself not only following Honor’s quest for closure, but examining my own. I look forward to reading many more of Ms. Hamm’s works for they truly are works of art which inspire personal and emotional growth in the reader.
3.0 out of 5 stars A little different 18 Jan. 2015
By KTSaus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The writing was interesting, I definitely liked an alternate but similar universe. I appreciated the ending. Hit on plenty of real life frustrations, friends having different lifestyles, parents aging and dying, general unacceptance. I suppose I have met hard headed people who are bent on continuously putting themselves down and not thinking of themselves as worthy, but there was too much self deprecation of Honor for me. All in all, it was alright.
5.0 out of 5 stars How would you feel...... 2 Aug. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Hmm, to be in a world where there are pulls to the only person you are fated to be with for the rest of your life, and there was no guarantee that the person would be your match in every way? Sounds stifling. Lime there is no choice. That I s the point of view I got. The story is unique in that feature and the author did an amazing job tying it all together. The characters were relatable in the aspect of love, loss and not finding love ever. I will watch for more from this author.
