Hello. My name is Tricia, and I have an addiction, an addiction to fiction. Fellow addicts, I welcome you with open arms. Blogger over @ bookwormcoalition.wordpress.com
I really enjoyed this story! I loved the idea that this shy little librarian had this extremely big and exciting magic just laying in wait inside of her. I was quite surprised just how she really came about accepting that, aka the plunge lol. I mean, wow. That is not likely something I will forget for awhile.
The characters were really interesting. I quite like Vhalla, but I think I liked her most towards the end of the book, mostly because that's when we really got to see just how strong she was.
The Dark Prince...mmmmm.
He was great, also! I thought their letters back and forth in the beginning were really cute. I liked how their connection developed throughout the book, the ups and downs of it. I'm really curious to see how things are between them as the series progresses. There are a few other characters I am not quite yet sure about, whether they be true friends or foes, but I kind of really love that. Makes it that much more of an adventure, not really being sure who to trust!
The fantasy element was super cool here. I love elemental control! Add that in with the political intrigue and a war, and you have yourself an attention grabber. I am super excited to see more of the elemental control parts as the series progresses. I feel like we only scratched on the surface with it in this one, and I look forward to seeing it more in depth in the coming books. All in all I liked this book and I am excited to start Fire Falling soon!
