This book is pretty much stand alone, tho it s its one in a series of three Wade thru the Prologue and Chapter One, perhaps Chapter Two.
It s the Evil, Dowager Queen Ysa vs the Beautiful Young Thing, Ashen Ho Hum But there are some twists, the book moves along, People die, are enchanted, etc.
, we are in the presence of royalty so no one does any work really The flying things live in cages and are called out to spy on people then put away for years, and time passes Finally, the book ends with a cliffhanger to get you to go to the library for the next book Hope they have it I think.
ugh, why did I waste my time on this book Starts out good, but then half way through, i m trying to figure out where the author s are going with the story too much skipping around and not enough detail to make you want to relate to characters and the sad thing is, I will eventually read the other books to see what happens Book two of the series is decent The world building is pretty amazing Each character is created with great detail It kind of reminds me of the Queen of Hearts in Alice in wonderland mixed with Snow White.
Strangely compelling Wish they d made itobvious that it was the second in a series though.
☆ Knight or Knave (Cycle of Oak, Yew, Ash, and Rowan) ☆ Stopped reading at page 100, the fated love triangle just pisses me off Adultery is one of my pet peeves Characters are still flat and boring.
