Description

An atmospheric and romantic debut fantasy perfect for fans of Ash and The Winner's Curse.

Betrothed since childhood to the prince of Mynaria, Princess Dennaleia has always known what her future holds. Her marriage will seal the alliance between Mynaria and her homeland, protecting her people from other hostile kingdoms.

But Denna has a secret. She possesses an Affinity for fire - a dangerous gift for the future queen of a land where magic is forbidden.

Now Denna has to learn the ways of her new kingdom while trying to hide her growing magic. To make matters worse, she must learn to ride Mynaria's formidable warhorses before her coronation - and her teacher is the person who intimidates her most, the prickly and unconventional Princess Amaranthine, sister of her betrothed.

When a shocking assassination leaves the kingdom reeling, Mare and Denna reluctantly join forces to search for the culprit. As the two work together, they discover there is more to one another than they thought - and soon their friendship is threatening to blossom into something more.

But with dangerous conflict brewing that makes the alliance more important than ever, acting on their feelings could be deadly. Forced to choose between their duty and their hearts, Mare and Denna must find a way to save their kingdoms - and each other.

A nice change of pace

So many stories with Lesbian lead characters are all about lust and sex and carry a ridiculous storyline that is quite repetitive and boring. Not this book. I enjoyed the change of pace and journey into a new world. This book is about so much more than a relationship between two women. A mix between Game of Thrones and Frozen.... and performed extremely well by the readers!

A lovely earnestly romantic fantasy romp.

Overall a fantastic book. The fantasy world is interesting and has egaging political and social drama. The friendship turned romance is handled well and the tension is a slow burn to a beautiful payoff. Pros: Sweetly romantic and full of feel good moments. Tons of political intriuge as cultures and Alliences clash. Two great protagonists with unique viewpoints on the plot A well structured and executed metaphor using the protagonists acceptance of her forbidden magic to parallel her coming out story. is very gay Towards the end the obstacles grow larger and the tension pays off beautifully. Cons: Pacing issues towards the middle Some characters are developed right before dying and the deaths are sometimes trivial. Some characters are one note and do not meaningly impact the plot. The fantasy names get a little wordy and they start to get confusing. tone is not consistant during some key scenes. Overall a phenomenal story that hit just the right spot for me. A fun gay fantasy adventure with likable characters. Would Recommend.

A lovely story and amazing narration!

Loved this book! The characters were so likable and well written, the plot was thrilling and the romance just way too adorable to handle. The narration as well was beautifully done. This has earned it's place among my favorites!

So much potential, but...

Let me start by saying, I think the reader did a damn fine job. The book itself however, leaves much to be desired. The main characters don't feel real and are largerly unrelatable. The romance seems.... also unreal. This overwhelming love that they claim to have for each other is only shown in a couple of scenes (one being the final scene), otherwise the characters seem to be acting on... good knows what motivation, cause it's not love. All in all, I feel the story is too long for what it delivers. If it was about half the size and cut out alot of unnecessary scenes, it might be better (or at least an easier read to get through).

Queer Princesses

Queer princesses. Need I say more? Yes? The story was thrilling, the characters were layered and not too cliché, and the performance was delightful.

Great fantasy romance!

I could not stop listening. The chemistry between the protagonists was incandescent (no pun intended), and the narrators were brilliant!

Slow burn, but burns so GOOD!

Ah, I just finished the book. The narrators are amazing, they really do a great job bringing these characters to life. It’s been a long while since I listened to such a captivating story. The chemistry between the two main characters from the very beginning was wonderfully written. At times I could feel the true excitement and sorrow the characters felt. An amazing world with magic and political power struggles. I highly, HUGHLY recommend this book to everyone, and I’ll be starting the next book soon! An open ending leading into the next book, but with a solid ending. Might I add, gay friendly and being a lesbian myself it was such a great read to not just have male/female relationships.

Enjoyed the story and adventure

It’s nice to see stories of this genre and fantasy tied with lgbtq. I definitely recommend these two books, hoping to see a third in the future!
