Emma meets Robin Hood in this antebellum-esque historical fantasy set in the same fantasy world as A Gift of Poison.

Verity Elysius is the only daughter of a famous retired general and rich plantation owner. She lives in an insulated world of wealth and privilege, where she spends her time riding her horse, sassing her lady’s companion, and being tormented by the family’s handsome but irritating nobleman friend, Lord Roth. But when a mysterious, masked vigilante called the Hawk begins stirring up trouble and freeing silvras, the oppressed lower class, Verity’s world is turned upside down as she is challenged about everything she knows about her world and her place in it.

 

Wanneer ik de cover en de samenvatting van dit boek las, verwachtte ik een simpel liefdesverhaaltjes, genre stationsromannetje. Gelukkig bleek dit niet waar te zijn. Het boek bevat aanklachten tegen slaverij en oorlog. Hierdoor werd het een erg mooi, spannend verhaal. Sommige dingen waren wel te voorspellen, maar er zaten ook enkele verrassingen in. Het verhaal is supermooi opgebouwd en ik heb het op een erg korte tijd uitgelezen. Dat wil iets zeggen. Moest je dit boek op de kop kunnen tikken, zou ik het wel eens uitproberen!

Emma meets Robin Hood in this antebellum-esque historical fantasy set in the same fantasy world as A Gift of Poison.

Verity Elysius is the only daughter of a famous retired general and rich plantation owner.

When I saw the cover of this book, I was expecting a simple and silly lovestory. Something beautiful to read, but not very original as a story. I was totally wrong about this. The book talks about slavery and war. Therefore it became a beautiful, enticing story. Some twist could be predicted, but I was suprised as well. From the beginning I had a feeling about who the ‘masked’ man should be, but I was clearly wrong. The story is build up very beautifully and I read it in a very short time. That means something! If you would be able to buy this book, I would say: do it! You will probably love it!
