Over fifty years have passed since Daleth the seemingly immortal Witch-King and his army conquered the Ember Kingdom. Now, with the once fertile lands and its enslaved people dying around him, the Witch-King, driven by his insatiable thirst for eternal youth, prepares his forces to march on the prosperous neighbouring Freestates. It will be the beginnings of a conquest that could destroy nations, bringing death and destruction on an unimaginable scale. Then, when a peasant huntress whose rare gift was concealed from birth is exposed, it sets in motion a chain of events that could alter the destiny of generations to come.
This is not my usual read but I really wanted to give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. It is a mysterious story of Dark Knights and a Witch-King which is dark at times but more than I could ever imagine the book to be. Lots of different characters, some I liked, some I didn’t like, but only because this was how they were portrayed in the story as characters that you are not suppose to like. But all in all the story is set around a conquest which involves love, hope and humour which was really unexpected. As this was book one I am now intrigued to read book 2. I did enjoy the story but as it is not my preferred genre I have given it 4/5 stars.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
When a fun-loving American nanny turns a millionaire British single dad’s world upside down, it’s inevitable life is going to get complicated.
Taking a break from screenwriting in New York City, Londyn Bellerose takes a nannying job in Colorado to get away from the hubbub. A summer to live without regrets is all she wants. While her boss is British, gorgeous, and a millionaire, he has no clue how to have fun. Determined to mend the relationship between father and daughters, Londyn doesn’t expect to fall for the museum curator.
Londyn is American and everything Callum Archer swore to never fall for again. With her carefree spirit and energetic smile, she’s perfect to nanny Callum’s two daughters. The problem is she’s also perfect for him. She’s sassy, musical, and tends to speak her mind more than she means to.
When old history and new dreams threaten her happily ever after, will Londyn and Callum’s love survive?
I love getting a book that is the debut for the author which this one is. I am a big fan and look forward to book 2 in the series as it was really good. The writing flowed and the story line really worked. Sometimes it is hard to write about real life situations and be sensitive but Skye the author really handled them all very well indeed. The comedy is absolutely brilliant in it, ( I nearly snorted my tea out of my nose) and the characters are written well. I look forward to reading the next book.
