Product Description

Life hasn't been easy for Aeley since she arrested her brother, and her role as a political leader leaves her feeling isolated and lonely. Days before her brother's trial, she meets Lira, a quiet and modest scribe who makes Aeley want more than just a professional relationship.

When she attends the trial and leaves with a marriage contract, Aeley doesn't know what to do. She must choose one of two brothers, marrying into a family she doesn't know. Then she discovers that Lira is part of the same family—a sister to Aeley's suitors and the family's disgrace. And not at all opposed to an intimate relationship.

Except random acts of violence against her people test Aeley's ability as a leader, and a web of lies and deceit threaten not only her chance at happiness, but her life...

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read 30 December 2016
By MAustin - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
A Question of Counsel was a good 4 star read.

Following the death of her father, Aeley becomes the leader of Kattal and is determined to prove that she is capable to take on the role. Her brother Allon is nothing but trouble and once behind bars he is even worse.

As mysterious attacks start to happen, Aeley needs to find out who is responsible. Aeley’s new scribe Lira is rather intriguing and Aeley is finding herself attracted to her. Can Aeley get rid of her demons and be the leader that her people need?

I really liked the plot of the story and the characters added a great element to the story as well. I really liked her best friend Mayr. We also see Aeley struggle with how to deal with everything.
There is suspense, kidnapping, steamy sex and two very strong women. I wouldn’t mind seeing a little more from Archer Kay Leah. I want to know more of the history

5.0 out of 5 stars isn’t pretty. Allon 5 September 2015
By Jane - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
After the death of Aeley’s Father, she is now the elected Tract Steward that will be governing the people of her section. But getting where she is, isn’t pretty. Allon, her brother left their family’s name in dark shadow as he wreak havoc with his deeds. Now, because of Aeley, he is behind prison.

However it seems like Allon still has some control over some people even though he’s locked up.

Now, Aeley needs to uncover the mysterious attacks that leaves her reign with a dead body and several wounded. Throw in a distracting woman whom Aeley is extremely attracted to. Will she find

As what I’ve said from my previous reviews, I don’t check or read prior to reading a book. Yeah, I read it when I stumble upon it or when I request for a copy. But I always forget about it before I read a book for a review or tour. So I’m pretty surprised about the developments. It’s actually pretty fun though. I don’t know what to expect. I don’t even have a clue of its genre. Maybe a hint from the cover and title. Anyway, getting back to the review.

I completely loved this book. Bookworms, watch out for Archer Kay Leah because she is a wonderful author. The book isn’t what I expected it to be. It was much more. I also want to point out that this is my first book that the main character doesn’t prefer men. I must say it was fabulously well-written.

The story was exhilarating. It left me wanting to know more of the journey between Aeley and Lira. And to also see more of Mayr! Can we get a sequel with his POV? Lol. The characters have different personalities. The plot was vast. The only negative thing I have to say is that I could use a little more descriptive words with the places and characters. Also want to know more about the political rules and hierarchy. It would help to also have a clearer picture of the world Aeley lives in.

A Question of Counsel is definitely a diverse book to add to your to-read list. It’s a wonderful and exciting fantasy novel that is perfect any season.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unimpressed 3 June 2015
By Anaya - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Reviewed from a free Net Galley eGalley.

I am pretty unimpressed with A Question of Council. The characters tell us that Aeley is a strong leader that sacrifices herself for her people, but she spends the majority of the novella whining, complaining and drinking to excess. This contributes to why it was hard to relate to her as a character. Perhaps due to the shorter nature of the novella, I didn't feel like I knew the arguably more sympathetic minor characters well enough, either.

Allon was an annoying villain because as readers we didn't get a great explanation for why he acts the way he does. He felt like a stock villain who is bad because someone needs to be. Is he a psychopath? Does he have legitimate justification? We'll never know.

Lira's brothers are pretty transparent villains, and Lira is even a pretty convincing villain for the fifteen pages or so we are meant to suspect her. The author did a great job of making it reasonable to expect she's in cahoots with her siblings, but a not so great job of convincing us she isn't actually in cahoots with them.

That all said, the plot was actually pretty interesting. If it had been better supported by the writing and characters, I think this could have made for a very compelling novella.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blood family relations at their worst, friend family relations at their most powerful and ... 31 May 2015
By InkedRainbowReads - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I receive this book from Inked.Rainbow Reads in return for an honest review.

A very enjoyable well written book. Exciting situations, strong female leads and believable plots and sub plots.

Blood family relations at their worst, friend family relations at their most powerful and inspirational.

A novel that has both leading women with commendable traits and beliefs while still possessing human failings. In a time when sexuality between couples depended on breeding, valour, bravery, honour and in this case love rather on gender.

Both women have very different personalities and upbringing, however, both have their own strengths and each compliments the others mettle as well as combatting and protecting each others weaknesses.

A novel that shows strength of family does not necessarily come those we are related too but a novel which emphasis the potency and ultimately the effectiveness of true love.

Anyone wanting a rich love story combined with devious subterfuge, a little light comedy, and ultimately a richly deserved happy ending should enjoy this book.
I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.
