Sworn to protect, honour and slay. Because chaos won’t banish itself…

Kit is proud to be a Blackhart, now she’s encountered her unorthodox cousins and their strange lives. And her home-schooling now includes spells, fighting enemy fae and using ancient weapons. But it’s not until she rescues a rather handsome fae prince, fighting for his life on the edge of Blackhart Manor, that her training really kicks in. With her family away on various missions, Kit must protect Prince Thorn, rely on new friends and use her own unfamiliar magic to stay ahead of Thorn’s enemies. As things go from bad to apocalyptic, fae battle fae in a war that threatens to spill into the human world. Then Kit pits herself against the Elder Gods themselves – it’s that or lose everyone she’s learnt to love. 


When I first heard about this series I was a bit worried it might be too much like Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series but the only thing they have in common is there are fairies completely new plot here.

Pros:

-It has been a longtime since I’ve liked how a female main character is written and Kit had all the things I liked of course she had some moments that made me want to shake her but they were due to her inexperience with fairies and other creatures other than that I can’t wait to read more about Kit.

-I liked how the author managed Kit and Thorn’s relationship , the pace was absolutely perfect; yes Kit noticed he was handsome yet he was still someone she was responsible for and it took time and getting to know one another for them to develop feelings.

-I actually liked all the characters both good guys and villains, I found them well written and that they contributed some way to the plot.

Cons:

-The ending. Why do authors love cliffhangers???

-This is not much of a con more like a worry that the author will write a love triangle in the second book.

I really liked this series and have very high hopes for it I can’t wait to see what happens
