It all began with a ruined elixir and a bolt of lightning.
Iolanthe Seabourne is the greatest elemental mage of her generation—or so she’s been told. The one prophesied for years to be the savior of The Realm. It is her duty and destiny to face and defeat the Bane, the most powerful tyrant and mage the world has ever known. This would be a suicide task for anyone, let alone a reluctant sixteen-year-old girl with no training.
Guided by his mother’s visions and committed to avenging his family, Prince Titus has sworn to protect Iolanthe even as he prepares her for their battle with the Bane. But he makes the terrifying mistake of falling in love with the girl who should have been only a means to an end. Now, with the servants of the tyrant closing in, Titus must choose between his mission—and her life.
This book was amazing! I purchased this, and the other two books in the trilogy, on Book Outlet and oh my gosh. BEST PURCHASE EVER! I have never heard of this series but I absolutely loved it. It is full of fantasy and mages and mages and everything that makes books great. I love Sherry Thomas’s writing style, I zoomed trough the first book in a couple of days and can’t wait to start of the next book.
They two main characters, Titus and Iolanthe have such great dialog and they progress throughout the book in a way that warms my heart. I think I just found another favorite author. If you are into magic, witches and super large dragons that protect castles then this series is for you!
