Excerpt:

Ryo Daerosis was on a mission. He would participate in the Royal Tournaments to win the Fae princess’ hand in marriage. Her beauty and wit were known throughout the land. Warriors from all over Faery were descending upon the royal palace this week for the tournament.

The Royal Tournaments were an age old tradition to marry the princess off to a strong suitor, to ensure there would be two powerful rulers ready to assume the responsibilities of ruling all of Faery. This was the first tournament to be held in the last century since the royal couple only had one child, the princess.

Ryo was from a long line of strong Fae males, the Daerosis Clan, who were known as fierce warriors. Elas Daerosis, Ryo’s own father, had been the leader of the Daerosis Clan for the past two centuries. It was at the urging of his father that Ryo entered the tournaments. As the eldest son of the clan leader, it was time he settled down. Also, as the eldest Daerosis in line, Ryo was in charge of the clan’s army, making him the perfect candidate to be the future king of Faery.

My Review
*****FIVE Stars*****

This is the first of Ariel Marie's books that I have read, and I can honestly say that I will be reading more from her. I had heard word of this author, so my interest was already piqued, but it was the cover that drew me in.

What I loved about this, was how well the Faery world was described. This isn't a genre that I read a lot of, but I felt that I was able to connect with the characters and see what they saw.
Even though she was only a small part of the story, the Queen was actually one of my favourite characters. While her husband was wanting to find a strong warrior to wed his daughter, she was more interested in who her daughter actually had her eye on, and who would make her happy. I found her to be a breath of fresh air through the tense moments.


What I also liked, was the strong sense of honour and loyalty throughout. Even Noelle, knowing that she would have to wed whoever won the tournament, regardless of how she felt about them, still stood firm that she would do what was deemed best for the Faery.

I really enjoyed this book, and look forward to reading more from this author.
