The Way I See It
This Romance starts off pretty shockingly. At first, I wasn't sure where it was going, and when I would start to connect with the characters. This story is slightly slow building (just because I was a little confused) *probably my own fault* However, once answers started coming to light, it was a whirlwind, and I fell in love. I understood the many characters, and their connections. I really enjoyed the way Ms. Blake spun the lore that is contained in this lovely novel! Everything started clicking, and I could not put the book down.
B-eautiful, and young Moira is lonely and considered strange.
Y-earning to find Peace and Solace, she desires to know who she really is.
T-reacherous beings from far away plot and plan ways to change the things that are.
H-auntingly enigmatic, a queen sends an emissary to do her biding.
E-ntrapped, Devali has no choice, but to concede to Maeve's demands.
L-ove born innocently out of a full moon, will never recede.
I-ndependent and alone, Owain has never met someone who has moved him the way Moira has.
G-uarded, were their hearts. It took one, and other, to tear those walls down.
H-opeless, a love that will never be understood, by the noble and peasants alike.
T-ruths that lead to an egregious rejection, shattering an innocent heart.
O-ffspring though flawed, hold no fault, and should never be punished for just being.
F-ire burning, desire blooming, and a final happiness proves where Moira comes from.
T-rust broken, but mended again will remain strong for these two.
H-eartache for those Maeve has lost, and has had to sacrifice.
E-difice looming, Moira turns her back and walks away from everything she has known.
M-other, always gone, always loving, always watching.
O-utpouring of magic, making wrongs right and dreams come to fruition.
O-blation, a sister will do what it takes to ensure the happiness of her other.
N-ecessities is all they have. It's all they need.
The looming problem in the story is resolved. YAY!! I like it when that happens! There are some things left open, so I do hope Ms. Blake continues to write about Owain and Moira, and this collection of complex characters If you like lore and love, this book is for you, and I highly recommend it! I know I'll be STALKING "looking out" for the next book in this series.
Lonely and eccentric, at the core aren't we all that way, even a little bit? Typically, I love the tough as nails chick! Well...Moira is a lady, she is feeble, and tiny, sullen even. I looked passed that, and what I saw was a beautiful girl looking for her way in a life that was predesigned for her. She fought the constraints of the norm facing ridicule and not wavering. Isn't that the toughest form of bravery? Facing ridicule, and accusations while remaining true to the heart? I admire her for that, knowing what I know about her, I CANNOT WAIT to see where her character goes! I'm kinda doing a happy dance.
Blaydin, even the name is HAWT!! MM MM MM! Not a knight in shinning armor, but a protector to the core! Once he gives his heart to Moira, he is willing to do anything for her. We don't know much about him, thus far, and I fell in love with him for all the things he did for Moira. He sees her as beautiful, when most see her as strange. He sees her as strong and wild, while most see her as weak and withdrawn. For all those reasons, I love Owain, and I certainly can't wait to get to know him better. ;)
4.0 Favored Pet, Glowing Heart, Ancient War, Full Moon, Dead Horse, Lost Child, Fertility Restored, Promises Made, New Adventure Filled Stars!! For those of you who are fans of magic, love, and lore, this paranormal is for you!! Go out and get it. *sing song* Get it. Get it! ;)
