    Definitely recommend

    The story was very descriptive and well written. I found it easy to get myself lost in the characters and in the beautiful world that Parrisha created. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

    Great novel for a first time author!

    Fantasy readers will love it...Fox is the very first novel of new Author, Parrisha Martelly. Even though the novel was well written, it was hard for me to get into while reading it. I would give Fox 3 3/4 stars, but I'm rounding to 4.
    -Parts of the story felt as though they were skimmed through, like when movies go to commercial or chop parts out of the story.

    Fox is on a mission to save her father, Levictious when he is taken by the Chosen. The Chosen are a group that are trying to get Pandora's Box, which we all know releases destruction. Fox is the heir to a group that are protecting Pandora's Box. At first, Fox is refused permission to go rescue her father because she is the only heir and she is also part of a big prophecy where she has the power to save the world from the Chosen. She just hasn't discovered those powers yet... After some deliberation, Fox is allowed to go on the mission--mainly because she would have done it anyway. Fox is insecure with the way people see her. They fear her and when she notices their fear of her, she steps back and holds her head down. Then, there are times when she can be so strong, like when she refused to back down about her father. This story started out real slow for me. It took a while for me to get into it. I found the best parts were when Fox was interacting with Falcon...who throughout the story realizes that the two share a deep pain and have more in common than he realized. The fight scenes definitely felt as if they were cut out. There would be fighting one minute, and then the story cuts to the next scene. Still, I think this was a great first novel and shows how promising Parrisha and the Vendetta Series will be in the future
