And Hardwin constantly protecting Fallon and ensuring that she was safe at all times. The banter between our two main characters in fantastic, funny and just oh so damn cute. This was everything and I loved it! She named their dog! Ohh so much sass! Ahhh the merry men of bandits were fantastic. I loved all the side characters in this book, which is really odd for me. Cooper is so adorably cute I want to wrap him in a blanket and love his forever!
About The Fray
Callum, the little spy, is such a cutie too, where do they find these guys? Archer I have a feeling that he would be awesome to have a strawberry cake with while we sit down and discuss the best ways to kill people. What can I say I much prefer male characters to female, less whinging and more manly amazingness! Dale also was a brilliant. Now the hard part.
As much as I fricken adored this book, it only got a 4. I love reading from different characters perspective, it has to be one of my favourites but there needs to be an indicator when we are switching from one perspective to another. A new chapter is always a good start. The only thing that stopped this book from getting a 5 from me was the fact it jumped from characters too often and without any clear indication of which perspective we were reading from.
There was a few moments where you get a thought pattern from one character and then straight to the next. You can only ever be in one mind at one time. Well in my unprofessional opinion anyway. Over all I loved it and I need more. I am low-key stalking Emily Dale right now and after you read this book you will completely understand my actions, she is amazing!!
Jul 23, Lucy rated it it was amazing. Emily has created a medieval-inspired world that I am very intrigued by.

The characters are multidimensional and their stories are captivating. Aug 29, Cecilia Alice rated it it was amazing. It was incredibly refreshing to read a story in this genre with a strong, gutsy female protagonist. Fallon is no damsel in distress and her fervent desire to assert herself, while navigating unfamiliar social mores in a dangerous new land, drove the story forward, compelling me to read on. Emily has created a diverse set of characters that not only complement the story but standout in their own right.
At times, I found myself re-reading beautifully descriptive passages to relish them over again. Completely captivating. I can't wait for the next instalment!

Jan 26, Stephanie rated it it was ok. The writing was repetitive, and character development was minimal to poor due to the lack of dialogue.
Jumping from character perspective mid paragraph was also confusing. It became easy to read the same sentence over as at times it became too descriptive, with minimal dialogue throughout the whole book. I felt plots were opened and then not visited again, leaving the reader question what the purpose was, or if the author just forgot to revisit. Nov 08, Lisa rated it it was amazing. I really enjoyed this first in a new series by Emily Dale.
It surprised me within the first few pages as the story took a turn that I did not expect and Fallon found herself far from home.
