Overview

Sentenced to be executed.

Betrayed. Alone.

Hung on the gallows.

Rema thought her life was over, but she was wrong.

Saved by a rebel force she’d only ever heard rumors about, Rema finds herself in a forbidden place. She is finally safe—free from the king and Prince Lennek. But not everything is as it seems at the rebel fortress. Secrets are whispered, and loyalties are tested. Once Rema uncovers the truth of her heritage, will she flee? Or will she ascend to the throne, taking on the responsibility of an entire kingdom?

Now that Darmik knows Rema’s true identity, he’s on a quest to save her. But when an Emperion assassin arrives on Greenwood Island, Darmik knows he doesn’t have very long to find her. In a deadly game with high stakes, will Darmik remain loyal to his family? Or will he break away and join the rebels?

Kingdoms rise and fall.

Heroes are born and made.

But one thing remains the same—love conquers all.

    RED is an outstanding sequel to The Key where we delve deeper in

    RED is an outstanding sequel to The Key where we delve deeper into the mystery, lay claim to the heart of love, and step forward into a destiny birthed from dreams. We not only see Rema transform into the captivating princess that she was born to be, but we also begin to catch glimpses of the strong and compassionate queen that her people so desperately need. Prince Darmik continues to prove why he is worthy to hold Rema’s heart and her hand as he bravely stands against his family in order to put her on the throne. Granting us further admission into her deadly and beautiful world, Jennifer Anne Davis continues to weave this breathtaking epic adventure of quiet strength, undying hope, and relentless love.

    Rema has become so much more than just a simple merchant’s niece. She has proven that she has an inner strength that even she was not aware of which has helped her to overcome horrendous circumstances. Even amidst her doubts, she knows that she has found a tender and passionately love with Darmik, and in trying to keep her heart alive, she holds onto a tiny hope that what they briefly shared is still alive and will come back to her. Her life has become something that is far beyond even her own dreams could create. Pushing ever onward, she searches for where she belongs while desperately wondering what her future holds in store.

    I continue to marvel at the woman that Rema is becoming. She finds a strength that has yet to fail her, a determination that knows no bounds, and a heart that longs to hold and care for her people. As she learns of the real plight of her people, she feels an impending revelation of who she really is. Her heart will not allow her to become anything less than who she was born to be. She feels the heavy mantel of her destiny as it begins to fall upon her small shoulders, and she draws strength from her newfound friends to help her carry this majestic burden. This amazing character is just beginning to blossom before our eyes, and I eagerly await the presentation of the full bloom of this wild rose.

    Darmik continues to surprise me as he begins to allow himself to finally see his people and his kingdom through the eyes of his heart. Almost too late, he realizes the pain and turmoil that his people are forced to endure in the name of comfort and indulgence for his father and brother. His determination to do whatever he can to right all of the terrible wrongs that he has seen and done forces him to seek out Rema and the rebels to join with them. After his heart and mind have given up their fight, he gives in and allows himself to completely open his heart to Rema proclaiming his love and devotion to her. He knows that time and victory may not be on their side, and he desires to embrace the sweet and tender love that they share before he loses this last ray of hope in his life.

    This story just keeps getting better and better, and I love absolutely everything about it! Fantasy has always had a special place in my heart because in those stories you can truly follow your heart and there is no limit to the possibilities. I enjoy the fantastic rush of hope that surges through the pages of this story even when it is being beat down and smothered. It will not easily die because where there is still life there is hope. The hope that lives in our heart far longer than it should is not logical for the heart is not controlled by the mind. The mind has no power over it, and so it will continue to live and flourish of its own will. I pray that you allow the hope in your heart to flourish no matter what you are going through. Your circumstances do not define who you you. Only you can define who you are.

    I have been waiting for this one for what feels like ever but re

    I have been waiting for this one for what feels like ever but really it was only a few weeks. Jennifer Anne Davis did not disappoint me one bit. I was obsessed with The Key and now I am obsessed with Red. I love this story and quite honestly need Book #3 like yesterday. 
    Red picks up right where we were left off in The Key, at Rema’s execution. I was still holding my breath as the floor gives way. But the rebels save the day since Darmik still isn’t thinking the way I need him to be. Rema is brought to Rebel camp where we meet Mako again. Some wonderful new characters were brought into the story and they really added so much to the over all feel of the story. 
    In Red, we watch Rema grow as a woman and as a potential leader. We also see the changes in Darmik and how he feels about his place in his family and his kingdom. I also realized that I have a crush on Neco, Darmik’s best friend. I love Darmik, don’t get me wrong but the trusted best friend makes me feel like Darmik and Rema will be okay whenever he comes into a scene. 
    I don’t want to spoil this amazing book for anyone but seriously pick up this series. If you are tired of the same plot lines and stories, this is the book for you. It really set the bar high for me. I want new, different and amazing. All three things this book and series has.

    I loved The Key, but was literally left hanging at the end. Red

    I loved The Key, but was literally left hanging at the end. Red totally lived up to the first book, even surpassing it! Ms. Davis is a master story teller. This book has action, intrigue, danger, foreshadowing of threats to come, tied together with just enough romance to leave me smiling. I am completely in love with this story!!! This author is one to watch. Look out New York Times, Jennifer Anne Davis is headed your way

    Shortly after starting this book, I decided the series is going

    Shortly after starting this book, I decided the series is going on my very exclusive Shelf of Awesome. The first book had me biting my nails, pacing, making plans to subject certain characters *coughcoughLennekAndBarjoncoughcough* to unspeakable torments, and generally fangirling. The sequel did not disappoint and I will be at the head of the line for War this month.

    The plot:
    This series is very, very fast paced with less description and more action in the writing style. The plot is very “slender” with all unnecessary body fat (unimportant bits) trimmed off. In other words, if something happens, you’d best pay attention because it happened for a reason. There are a lot of places where things felt condensed and while that made for concise reading, I did wish for more description in certain places. But it wasn’t a big issue and it’s still clear what everyone looks like, how buildings are laid out, etc. This was a fast read despite its length and I think we can all appreciate a book that can be devoured in one sitting.

    The characters:
    I have liked Rema since book one and that certainly didn’t change here. Of course, I find her passion for equines particularly endearing and I love that the writer made her an independent, strong female without having her be kick@$$ or snarky. She has to sort through a lot of issues in this book and a lot of heavy revelations and I thought she took it rather well. Though, personally, I would have been a bit more miffed at Mako for lying to me. Make that a lot more miffed. Rema is far more reasonable than me.

    As for Darmik—I adore him, okay? I’m a sucker for bad@$$ good boys. He too has to sort out buckets and buckets of choices, morality, and feelings in this book. Poor baby. It takes him a little while to figure out what he plans to do, but once he does he commits to his decisions like a true military man. His relationships with his father and brother are displayed further in all their dysfunctional complexity, but I liked seeing more of the friendship between him and Neco. There was a little of it in the first book, but a much more of it here. And of course, Neco and Ellie were adorable. Not as adorable as Rema and Darmik, but still adorable.

    In the description of the rebel army, there was one thing I took issue with. It says that what the female fighters lacked in the men’s strength, they made up for with superior speed. That’s well and good, except for the fact that all the research I’ve done says swiftness is by far more important. What I mean is, their male fighters need to get up to speed. (Pun intended. Micro-rant over.)

    The other character I’ll mention (because this is getting a bit long) is Savenek. At first, I was terrified that the author was going to put in a love triangle. I was all prepared to scream in outrage and stomp my feet, but Ms. Davis was merciful. I did not and do not like Savenek—misogynistic, arrogant, whiny, troublemaking little brat that he is—but he’s a good fighter and ultimately means well, so I’ll refrain from completely hating him for the moment.

    In summation, I love this series and I am torn about reading the final book. On one hand, I must know what happens. On the other, I don’t want it to end. I certainly recommend it!
