    Castles, Queens and Intrigue!

    Shadow's life is unbearable. Shut away from the sky, she spends her days in the chambers of a cruel and petulant young queen. She has no past, and only a small hope for the future. But...don't your favorite fairy tales always start in a place of very little hope?

    Moss spins her premise beautifully. Her writing is tight, her plot twists worthy of the darkest royal court, and her heroine conflicted and believable.

    The result is a thoroughly enjoyable escape into adventure, self discovery, and romance!

    A magical fairytale adventure for all ages.

    My thoughts...I adored this story. The story has a fairytale feel, complete with a queen, a knight, beautiful castles, and silk dresses. However, it surprised me with a dark side full of dungeons, dark secrets, betrayals and lies. The heroine Shadow, is just that, a Shadow to the beautiful queen. Queen Audrey treats Shadow very poorly, as do her ladies. Despite her situation, Shadow keeps her head held high and demands respect, even though it usually results in her punishment. Her character grew significantly as the book progressed. She became more bold and determined. Moss did a brilliant job of telling the story from the heroine's point of view, I got a really good sense of her character.

    The plot of the story flowed very smoothly and I had a very hard time putting it down. Although it is geared to very YA (ages 10 and up), I think readers of any age would find it enjoyable. The plot held mystery, a bit of romance, midieval action complete with swords, and magic. Moss did a very good job capturing that time period. The descriptions of the lands, the dialect and customs displayed by the characters allowed me to be part of their world. It was very well written.

    The cons...I am very hard-pressed to say anything negative about this book. Some readers may be able to predict the ending of the story, but if you are a fan of this type of fairy tale story, you won't mind a bit.

    ..........

    I got this book because of all of the good reviews but i have to say that it didnt live up to my expectations. To me it seemed rushed. One thing just happened after another which left me in the dust trying to figure out what happened. Also it was just too confusing with all of the chataters keeping secerts. However despite my review you may like it but my advice is to actally read the sample before rushing into it like I did or it will be a waste if money.

    This book was great. It has a twist in the end i was so stunned but i will not give it away. At some points i did nit like Sir Kenway but thought Ingen, Roe, Rowe, and Piers were very goid characters

    Awesome book for most ages

    This is am amazing book filled with action, adventure, a dash of comedy, and romance. It is a wonderful adventure and i would recommend this book for people 10+ because some parts can be a little scary or gruesome. Other than that i would recommend this to everyone who believes they are mature enough to handle a few parts which are a little scary.

    <3 luv it!

    I already have the book, but i had to write... i absolutly adore the book!i finished it for the second time. A little predictable at times but definetly a great read. The kind of book you start at night for just a chapter but end up most of the night reading.
