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.

  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.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong.
