Description:

Sixteen year-old Bree has spent her life as a barmaid, innocent to her father’s past and happily free from the Elemental gifts that would condemn her to a life in the King’s army.

Until the day that three Elemental soldiers recognize her father as a traitor to the throne and he’s thrown in jail—along with the secrets from his last mission as the King’s assassin. Secrets that could help the King win a war. Secrets he refuses to share.

Desperate to escape before the King’s capricious whims prove her and her father’s downfall, Bree bargains with him: information for their lives. It’s a good trade. And she has faith she’ll get them both out of the King’s grasp with time.

But that was before the discovery that she’s the weapon the King’s been waiting for.

Now, time is running out. To save her father’s life and understand her own, Bree must unravel the knot of her father’s past before the King takes his life– and uses her to bring a nation to its knees.


Thoughts:

Jennifer Ellision with this novel provided some really great villains {you could really get behind hating them}, an adorable father/daughter relationship between Breena and her father. This is a good first book but would expect better in the second installment, this book was a bit of a slow burner and slow paced. You can understand as the author is trying to build a world for you.

Due to the slow burn, I’m not overly impressed with the relationship between Breena and Prince Caden, it didn’t feel right for me in parts. It was a little rushed and didn’t allow for curcumstance to help with their budding relationship.

What I was pleasantly pleased with the “plot twists” they keep you engaged throughout the short. I’m looking forward to Riot of Storm and Smoke (Threats of Sky and Sea, #2) and Breena’s story enfolding.

 


Score: 4/5
