When she is chosen for the honor of serving the Prince in the Tower, she hopes to find a way to right the wrong . . . but soon discovers that things are worse than she believed.

AUTHOR BIO:
As a child, L.K. Malone liked to make up episodes of her favorite TV shows when she was supposed to be napping. Her favorite pastimes include reading, writing, and enjoying time with her large extended family, which includes a handsome menagerie of pets and two lovely young women she met through Denver Kids.


My Opinion:
This, by far, was an interesting story. It had so many wonderful elements going on, though for some maybe too many.
I had thought to myself at one point while reading this book, that it's a mash up of Harry Potter starring a girl instead, mixed with Roman and Greek Mythology and a dash of paranormal.
Then I wondered if it was too much, and decided not for me! I loved it!
A lot of great lessons learned throughout the story for Hadlay, and they resonate into the reader also.
Great storytelling and one I am surely to recommend.


4/5

  1. I haven't read Harry Potter, but I should (and I'm going too, someday). And when you say that it's a mash up of it, that's pretty cool. Loving the cover too. It looks so fun. :) Great review. Glad you enjoyed reading it.

Now, Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel.

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

REVIEW: So much better than I anticipated. One fierce, strong and smart mom comes to the rescue of her whole family. These guys who took her kids, don't stand a chance. She's not a MMA fighter or anything, but she is smart and resourceful. I was so in tune with the film, and as a mom, I was on the edge-of-my-set waiting for her to give them what they deserved. No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
