An adoptee raised in a foreign land, sixteen-year-old Lianne was content with her life as handmaiden to the queen, until a spell cast on her at birth activated. Now she's filled with uncontrollable rage and access to magic she thought had been bled from her people years ago. Even her years of secret training in elite hand-to-hand combat and meditation can't calm the fires raging inside her.

Her heart is torn between two boys, the one she's always loved and the one who always ignored her. But when the kingdom threatens to tear itself apart due to rumors surrounding the queen's alleged affair, who will Lianne protect and who will she destroy?

I,m not good with reviews, but I read a lot of books (fantasy and sci-fi). This was a refreshingly NEW take on another world. Nicely told. I'm starting "Afterlife" now.

So you open the book, and what’s on page 1? An execution! What a way to grab attention. The book is well paced, so your attention is always kept front and center. The fantasy world is neat with a mystery surrounding the peoples and their histories that is kept alive until the final pages.  In addition to the mystery, we’re also provided with an age old favorite – the love triangle. Lianne is torn between the boy she’s always been best friends with, Bryden, and the boy she’s always had a crush on that’s finally taken notice of her, Kellan. This has no bearing on the story, but I was personally team Bryden from the get-go, just sayin’. She struggles with this throughout the major conflict, and it gets her into further trouble.  Now, lately I’ve been getting pretty tired of love triangles, but this one is actually done in such a way that I only wanted to smack Lianne a couple times, so that’s a plus! However, there were other times that I felt she was seriously niave, but then had to remind myself that at the age of 16, answers can be staring you in the face and you would still not see them…because teenagers are young, blind, and stupid. Just because the world is such that 16 is older than it would be in our world, doesn’t mean that doesn’t apply. Alas, regardless of age, I still felt invested in the outcomes for all the characters!
