There is none to be found where they live so she must travel to Ober Eden where the people kill first and ask questions later and just pray not to be caught.

Of course, being exhausted and hungry, she gets caught stealing fruit.

Rundan being a scout in his father’s army knows that taking the thief to his father that she’ll be put to death but others have seen her so he has no choice. His father has ordered him to take her to the palace. What will they do to her there? Unspeakable things. Yet, what choice does he have? His father said to deliver her or do not return.

My Thoughts

I generally don’t read books that are complete fantasy they just aren’t my thing. So it was with much hesitation that I agreed to read this book for Lena Goldfinch. I did take me a few chapters to get into the ‘feel’ of the book but after that it was really quite enjoyable.

I do have to wonder, though, how she managed to pack so very much into seventy pages. Ms. Goldfinch managed to pack a completely different lifestyle and history into this book and still include a sweet love story. I’m quite impressed!

** Thank you, Juju, Tales of Whimsy!! This book is not something I’d normally have read but because of your review I jumped at the chance to review it when the author contacted me.

** Many of the books I review are Advance Review Copies. These books are loaned to me for my review. I am in no way compensated for my time nor am I asked to give anything but my honest review.
