The feisty and determined faerie Princess Alannah is many things, but she never thought she would be the key to her people’s destruction.

Now she must cross mountains and forests fraught with rogue faeries, vicious Fae-hating trolls, dangerous shape-shifters, and more to reach the only ones that can help her control her incoming powers. The Elder Faeries.
With Brennus by her side, Alannah is determined to reach the Elder Faeries and save her people. Maligo is just as determined she never makes it that far.

                                     My Review              

First I would like to thank the author for providing me with the book. It was very generous of her and I feel extremely honored to be given the chance to write a review for her much acclaimed ‘The Kingdom Chronicles’ series.

This book was totally enchanting, the plot fantastical and the characters bewitching. Sometimes I used to get so enthralled reading it that I felt like I was part of the plot. I love when stories make you feel like you are part of the book!

This story is about a faerie princess, Alannah. She is born with a very rare and very special power, a power that she is yet to harness. This makes her a target of the evil fae Maligo, who would stop at nothing to acquire her and use her powers for his own malicious intents. He plots to kidnap her and succeeds. However, Alannah is not your typical damsel in distress. She is strong, feisty and rescues herself from prison and escapes with the help of a fellow prisoner, Brennus a Warrior Fae. Thus starts her quest to uncover the true potential of her powers.

Brennus- He is a fellow prisoner whom Alannah helps when she is escaping from the clutches of Maligo. He comes off as a very strong character from the very beginning. He has more powers than anyone before him had in a century. He is determined, handsome and sexy. In short, he’s totally swoon worthy. He is an important ally of Alannah in her journey, who goes on to become her lover.

What made this book special, was the author’s ability to narrate the sub plots with intricate detail. The love triangle between Alannah, Brennus and Prince Kaleb was the highlight of the book. The sub-plot of Alannah’s adopted sister, Princess Evyette was very captivating. Evyette and Tristan’s love and their quest to unravel the truth of Evyette’s past was entertaining.

B.C. Morin writes a captivating story that keeps your imagination and just like you are in the story. I applaud her writing style I so highly recommend this book. This is a must read.
