Rules dating book review
Once there and under Puff’s arranged protection of General Silas Dravenko, she decides to help him cure the curse of the Three Cursed Clans and the plague, so no other children will be kidnapped by dragons in the future.Annoyingly, once Eviana is safely returned home, Gwennore appears to forget all about Eviana—who before was referred to as the only person she ever felt a strong, loving connection with—and Gwennore instead focuses entirely on Silas and curing the disease, which she didn’t really want to cure in the first place.However, to my surprise and delight, this book read much more like a fantasy novel than an actual romance novel.In fact, there was only one sex scene in the entire book—less than even some fantasy novels I have read—and a lot less than I was suspecting I would encounter.From the brilliant imagination of Kerrelyn Sparks comes a bold new fantasy romance series in which passion and magic collide. But when the kidnapping of a young girl thrusts Gwennore into the very heart of the realm of the dragons, she discovers not only a place of power and magic, but also a haunted land, plagued by an ancient curse that all but ensures extinction to the royal family. An Elf able to track down the cause of an illness and heal it, she’s a valuable asset to her people.
I often found myself wishing the author had gone deeper with her characters and developed the romance and the plot differently.
Gwennore, a virginal healing elf, is a member of the Embraced, a set of people born under the eclipse or “embracement” of the two moons and born with the magical ability to sense diseases in people.
Gwennore, or Gwennie, as her five adopted sisters call her, is faced with prejudice wherever she goes, as the elves are currently locked in a brutal war with other nations.
Instead, he never seems concerned about this, and is in fact, more troubled about if she likes Puff more than him.
This seems odd to me and I wish the author would have given up some of the humor of Silas being jealous of himself in order for more of this kind of development.
