medieval times, even the King isn t mentioned that much The historical aspect is the setting, the magic and it s impact the plot.Alyssa decides to take her grandmothers place as Wisewoman advisor to Lord Dillon In order to do so she disguises her self in her grandmothers cloaks, mimics her voice and hides her hands From the beginning you know that her and her family possess gifts And that her family is opposed to her decision but abide by it It s also clear they feel her disguise not only necessary but vital It makes sense in medieval times fear and crime ran rampant and anyone with extraordinary gifts was shunned or worse and that is made abundantly clear throughout the book Alyssa is determined to help Lord Dillon with all the power she has inside her as she s already half way in love with him Lord Dillons name precedes him He is feared and respected across the land and valued by the King who bestows castles to him He also has to lay siege and fight the previous Lords to get them in the name of his King Lord Dillon is weary Weary of fighting, weary of being feared especially by women, weary of not having a respite to invigorate him All he truly desires is a loving,gentle wife for him to love and pamper Alas all he gets are wenches that want him for his money and only wish for a rough tumble with him To my friends with triggers view spoiler Alyssa has been with him as an old lady for 7 years and for those years he does go with other women, it s not described in any way, just mentioned He sees Alyssa as the old lady that advises and heals him and has no close relationship with her until now hide spoiler When a life threatening injury fells our handsome knight Alyssa sacrifices her self to save him Dillon discovers that the old sorceress is a beautiful young maiden instead and the plot thickens from there on Passion flares, dastardly villains plan, peasants and knights get humble pie in their faces I spent a lovely few hours immersed in this book and I m quite happy about it To fans of Dianne Duvall you have a cameo appearance from some of her Immortal Guardians characters For me as this was my first book from her I didn t even realise until she mentioned it after the ending.Whatdid I want I wantedexplanations about their gifts A bitinfo on the origins of their powers Though I suspect some of that might be in her Immortal Guardians series Also some phrases sounded a bit samey and cliche here and there Overall though a solid start to a new series that I intend to follow DNF 35% This has to be one of the most clich d and

believes herself madly in love with Lord Dillon, whom her grandmother serves.I know we re all familiar with love at first sight, but this is actually love at NO SIGHT.This girl has literally NEVER met this guy But she fell in love with what she knows of him from the things her grandmother tells her, despite him being known as a bloodthirsty cruel man.So off she sets to take her grandmother s place, disguising herself as an old woman, painting age spots on her hands, and faking a feeble voice, all at the age of sixteen even if her entire family tells her she s being stupid Mary Sue that she is, she single handedly defeats Dillon s enemies even though they d been laying siege to the fortress forever Apparently, during a siege, people just walk right in and out of a fortress, and go around poisoning the ENTIRETY of the fortress inhabitants Seven years pass and we re told, not shown, that Dillon and Alyssa become bff, playing games, unburdening their hearts to each other, etcetera.This girl has zero personality Her entire existence revolves around her precious Dillon Not that I can say much about Dillon either, since his entire existence revolves around nothing at all Thankfully, Dillon dreams of his future bride, who is, of course, Alyssa, so when he is brutally wounded and Alyssa selflessly takes his wounds for herself while healing him her true guise is discovered Desperate confessions of love are professed because OMG SHE S HOT NOW and he can t lose herNay, he denied, his heartbeat thundering in his ears Nay Nay he repeated, his voice rising to a shout Do not leave me, Seer You cannotYes, I know it s the nae nae, not nay nay.Quite honestly, I couldn t keep going after this The plot is barely existent, the pacing is fast and boring at the same time, the characters are a Mary Sue and a Gary Stu, their romance is implausible, and the entire story reeks of immaturity if it weren t for the sexual content I d say the book would be suitable for very young teens I m giving it one star instead of zero stars for the language used, which was period appropriate, but that s literally the only good thing about this book Audio 4.5 starsStory 2.5 starsI went into this book thinking it was going to be a dark fantasy romance, but it wassweet, bordering on cutesy at times If my mind hadn t been set of a darker read, I would have enjoyed it.

unnecessary historical information and worldbuilding As a fan of this author s Immortal Guardian series, I was ecstatic to find out that some of the characters from that series plays a small part in

feared After so many years he is weary of battle and longs for peace and quiet and a woman, a wife who will be a companion and lover What he doesn t realise is the woman of his dreams may be nearer than he expects Alyssa We are told 7 years have passed since Alyssa took over from her grandmother, in which time Dillion and Alyssa have become very close, yet he is still wholly unaware of the fact the woman Wise One under the dark robes is not the aged women that has always been with him And since everyone else fears her and keeps away, Alyssa has been able to keep her secret That is until she nearly dies saving Dillion.A lovely light re read, the romance is cute and the connection between the main characters clear Although I must admit, there are things about the story and characters I wish were a little different Alyssa at 16 thinking she was in love with Dillion, due to what she has heard from her grandmother about him This is a man, who she has never met, something I always wrinkle my nose at when I re read this book, it would have been nice if the author made thisbelievable, e.g Alyssa throughout her short life having had visions of him and his life, or something like that Luckily this issue is not one that drives me barney Feelings developing or a crush becoming , after being with him for 7 years that srealistic.Also if I take a step back, from the read, which I did do this time, it s clear that Alyssa s entire existence revolves around Dillion, it would have been nice to havelayers to her as a character, that being said despite myself I do enjoy this read, hence the re read.I liked how protective Dillion was, and found him demanding people be nice to her sweet, even if it wasn t the best way to go about things.This book was my introduction to the author and an introduction I do not regret The book story is a good mixture of romance of course , light action and magic A nice bit of escapism
