3 out of 5 stars
I received this ARC from NetGalley.
The first book in a new series by the combined talents of not only Ms. Showalter, but also by Jill Monroe, Jessica Andersen, and Nalini Singh. Each book will be about one of the four adult children of the slain King and Queen of Elden. This one was about Nicolai, the Crown Prince and Jane a human woman who is recovering from an accident that killed her family.
I enjoyed the story, but was reminded of Ms. Showalter's Atlantis series. The parallel worlds, the creatures of myth and the very Alpha male. I understand that each book will bring us closer to reclaiming the kingdom, but I felt like this book ended a little too soon. Too many loose ends were left hanging. Hopefully, some of these loose ends will be tied up in the rest of the series.
All in all this was a fast enjoyable read for when you need a little light entertainment you don't have to think too deeply about.
