I wasn’t sure what to think when Kylene recommended this to me. Honestly I took a look at it and said yeah, I probably won’t be super into it, but probably won’t hate it. Kylene hasn’t led me astray yet with decent books, so I thought I’d give it a chance, besides I don’t get too many recommendations from people, just the online library that certainly does lead me astray! In addition, I was surprised to find so many friends who had already read this unknown book. So I put the book on hold and found it surprisingly engaging from the first chapter. It was fun to learn about the fantasy and folklore of people who have underlying ‘language skills’ of the animals, birds, people, wind, fire, etc. Fascinating concepts frankly. I found myself connecting quickly with the Princess Anidori, and certainly falling in love with her prince as well. I love the depth the book displayed so elegantly of the princess. She was highly capable and incredibly loving, she took her bad situations in stride, but never gave up, she was enticing, witty, engaging and smart! Great book, I highly recommend as well. I’m excited to read the rest of the series, and grateful the story goes on!
