I am a fan of fantasy where the heroine marries the warrior she doesn’t know and has to come into her own. And this girl, she had a long ass way to go. From a no body born to fulfill a contract to a girl who can fight. Kalista proves you can do anything with hard work and dedication.
While a lot of this book is based on filler and the plot is pretty see through from the start it is an enjoyable read. I just wish by the end or the epilogue they could speak more than 8 words to eachother in a row. Maybe it was to be sweet but sweet baby Aris was it just annoying after awhile. Maybe we needed to have a chapter from his view? I don’t know. It was good I just wished she would have learned more by the end.
