Summary from Goodreads: The end of an Empire, The rise of a Queen
Emory Fae enjoys leading a quiet, normal life. That is until two mysterious, and handsome soldiers show up at her apartment, and the life she knew is instantly whisked away. Memphis Carter and Brokk Foster come from the magical and war ridden world of Kiero, and upon Emory's arrival she will discover she is the long lost heir to the Royal Line and is thrown into the Black Dawn Rebellion with a dynamic role to ignite the rebels and reclaim her throne.
With both men being darkly woven in her past Emory uncovers hidden secrets, a power held long dormant, and will soon realize there are worse things than supernatural humans, love, loss, betrayal, and a Mad King.
Some things are better left in the shadows.
Review: This book started with a bang! I was thrown right into the middle of the action where, unfortunately, I was lost right off the bat. Thinking this was the second in the series, and maybe I missed the first one, I actually searched Goodreads or the first book. This is the first book. Surprise!
The story was great. There were a lot of aspects that could have been embellished on, but I really enjoyed the read. This book has so much potential to expand on this universe and dive deeper into the back stories of the characters. I wanted more. MORE! PLEASE GIVE ME MORE, MALLORY! If this book has a sequel, I want to read it and hopefully it is longer.
Three stars for Black Dawn.
