About the Book:
He finds her intriguing, she finds him dangerous. Can Shannah protect a
long held family secret from the persistence of her handsome employer?
The world of Eeryan is not unlike our own—kingdoms and
principalities with rich histories of love, hate, vengeance, war, peace,
epic battles, and natural disasters. There are diverse kingdoms to
discover and vast land masses to traverse, as well as a Great Sea that
essentially holds it all together.
In the land of Brundidge, so far across the Sea from kingdoms like
Demarde and Fayterra as to be almost unheard of, there is no remaining
magic. There is, however, a just king and stately queen, the right
amount of heirs, and a love story that will warm your heart.
This was a super fast read, being a short story. Sadly, I started late at night and had to put it down, but couldn't wait to finish it.
Cheri Chesley's writing is fresh and imaginative. She paints the pictures of the scenes so easily and effortlessly.
This story, being a short story and a fantasy romance, is one of the best I've read. First of all, it's clean, meaning your teen or pre-teen could read it and it would be perfectly fine. There's no foul language or hardcore sexual scenes. Yet adults will love it, too. If you're looking for something that dips your toe into the world Cheri Chesley has created, it will certainly pull you in and pique your curiosity, so you'll want to read more.
Even for a short story, the characters are well developed. You get all the information you need about them in 96 short pages and it still leaves you wanting to read more. You want to continue learning about Shannah and Brenden's lives long after reading the final word.
My rating is totally five out of five Skull and Crossbones.
