A darkness falls over the land when the Queen of Rurith dies.

For six years she visits him in secret, giving him hope where none existed before.

But Ruith hides many treacherous things that threaten to bring the Kingdom to its knees.

Until the Prince and his beastly curse are released.

My Review:


The cover of this book is simply gorgeous!  I would love to see this cover on my Fantasy bookshelf.

The beginning of the story felt a little abrupt to me, like I was dropped in to a very important scene in a movie.  I had to read the first few pages twice as I thought I had missed something.  But once I got into the storyline and understood the writing style, I felt the story was well paced throughout.

The characters were really fun in this one.  As it is a shorter book, there wasn’t a lot of time to dive deep into character development, however there are great ‘love to hate’ characters as well as sympathetic characters for the reader to cheer on.

The last 25% of the book was awesome, with a few twists I didn’t see coming.  The epilogue was amazing and I was left a bit speechless…. now I can’t wait to see what’s coming next!
