This story was not anything like I thought it to be before reading it. I thought it would be more of a love story but it turned out to be more intrigue, magic, and mystery. Although a little slow to get started, I really enjoyed it and look forward to more of this series.

The Princes Man was a gift from the author in exchange for an honest review. Enchanting and exciting….full of action! The beginning was a bit hard to get into but after a few chapters, I was hooked. This fantasy novel is worth reading. But be warned…the ending kinda leaves you hanging….so if you hate cliffhangers, you might get a bit upset.

This exciting and enchanting novel is very approachably written. Jay follows the basic format of a fantasy tale but he story itself is extremely unique. You can’t help but get caught up in the amazing world that Jay presents to her readers. At times I felt like I was watching a reel, I was so caught up in Jay’s descriptions of each and every scene. Not only that, but this novel is extremely well written and edited, allowing you to flow seamlessly into this world. Jay neither talks up nor down to her audience. Her story balances perfectly in that margin in between. Her very in-depth and intricate plot is told in a very captivating manner. It is gripping even through the battle scenes, which are suspenseful without being gory or dirty. This novel presents a well-developed cast that is full of interesting individuals who carry the story forward very well. Jay’s unique character names make it easy to remember everyone and who did what. The natural interactions between the characters make everything very easy to relate to. Jay also incorporates some very eloquent dialogue into this story, but it always fits with the characters in question. Although it isn’t the everyday language that one typically encounters it is fluid and enhances the characters in question. It also helps to differentiate between the different classes of the very well defined social structure within this tale, where everyone has their place even if they don’t necessarily accept it fully. Through this, court intrigue makes a play that definitely keeps you wanting more.  Overall, this was a captivating fantasy with just a touch of reality. It’s the perfect escape from the everyday. Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
