To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Had me intrigued right from the beginning. I have read quite a lot of the were series but this set has to be the best story line I have read in a long time. Even though it is a were series, it is very unique to others. It has been a real struggle to put the book down. Many late nights
While it takes a little to understand the world and it’s structural context of magic and beings the story develops well. It does need more editing to delete duplicate words and unneeded words that stop reading flow. Great little characters to warm to along the way. Little twists to keep you surprised. Overall a good YA read.
I’m thankful that I was able to get the full 7 books for I hate reading one book then waiting for the next as they come out! This book is excellent for its world building. The characters are well fleshed out. There are some minor errors but it’s good YA and young at heart fantasy. The young heroine, Princess Alba, is looked down on for being illegitimate. She tries out for the witches Magical Militia but her magic doesn’t suit. Nobody seems to understand that, they just see her failure. This young woman is determined to prove herself so she disguises herself as a young man and becomes a cadet in the Dragon’s forces. A classic good fighting evil story.
What started as a pretty good story descended into a horrendous farce with almost all the characters behaving like spoilt, completely unintelligent 8-year olds. The only character behaving in anything like an adult way was the teenage central character. The people in the story so annoyed me that, had it been a book instead of my Kindle, I would have ripped it to shhreds. It is only the fact that the first book of the sven was half-way decent that gets the set two stars instead of one. If I paid for this I really regret having done so.
