Summary

Enter the Nine Lands of the Mountain Fell. 

Skye has only ever known pain and solitude since waking up with neither memories or magic. Hunted for being a Ruler in a time when they are scarce, she has survived in the wilds near the Rim, always on the run from the rest of her kind. Only starvation could draw her close to a village, but when a chance encounter and a bit of bad luck launch her into the arms of a man whose soul is bonded to hers, hiding who she is may no longer be possible.

Ilyas is a hunted man. Wanted for killing the last High Queen of Vine, he is plagued by his past of wholesale slaughter. He never wanted another Queen, and certainly not a half-feral, distrustful girl who gave up on the Fae a long time ago. Unfortunately, Soulbonds are not so easily walked away from, no matter how hard they both may want to, especially when trapped together in a cave with a pack of Feral Fae right outside. 

With long-held enmities breaking out between the besieged villagers and all their lives on the line, Ilyas and Skye must learn to work together and trust each other if  they want to survive.

Highly enjoyable fantasy adventure

Thoroughly enjoyed this wonderfully narrated novel. Ilyas and Skye are characters that will draw you in and keep you entertained.

Pescatore and burnison have created a rich and vibrant world full of faeries, monsters and political intrigue.

Illyas is a wounded warrior, unable to trust after a lifetime of torture and abuse at the hands of the mad queen. Skye is a scatterbrained and magicless queen who is trying to avoid all high Fae. Neither wants to be bonded but they end up bound to each other and so begins the long and torturous journey to understand and appreciate each other.

An excellent story, with well developed characters. Rose Todd did a brilliant job at narrating it, I loved her voice for the druzies!! Can’t wait for book two!

Exciting new world awaits!

This is a great introduction to a new world of fantasy and adventure. The way the authors describe the world they have created really brings you there, every sight and sound is so realistic. I can’t wait to see what happened next in this universe! The reader does a fantastic job slipping between subtle changes of voices to give each their own unique aspect.

A fabulous enemies-to-lovers romance

Full disclosure, I’m not really a romance reader. I certainly enjoy romance (I might even enjoy a bit of steam here and there), but if it’s the backbone of a story I tend to be bored fairly quickly unless there’s something else going on. This book DOES NOT disappoint. J.P. Burnison and Allegra Pescatore have created a really cool, whimsical world with a solid set of rules to play with and some great lore at its core and, for book set primarily in a cave, I reread the first two sections twice because I didn’t want to miss anything when that annoying thing called LIFE got in the way and I came back to this book after a hiatus and was deep in the middle of action.

The characters, in particular, are where this book shines. Skye and Ilyas are nuanced and fascinating and you can’t help but enjoy their journey. Skye, in particular, is a great character and I loved how she just didn’t really understand nuance or…people in general. I can relate, and it was really entertaining. However the best character is, by far, Mycellica (a skitterling, a type of small fairy creature known as a “Fair Folk”) and you will only understand why if you trust me and read this book.

I’m excited to see where the rest of this series goes, and I eagerly await volume two!

Beautiful world, Beautiful characters

Did I discover an epic fantasy in my Fae romance? Yes, and it made the book better than I could have possibly imagined. Fans of complex characters, detailed lore, and intriguing magic systems will adore this instant classic by Pescatore and Burnison.
