"This is just the first book in the series and it blew me away.  With each twist and turn I found myself enchanted just a bit more."
--Candace's Book Blog 

"Kristen has seriously raised the bar with the young adult fantasy genre in my eyes. I don't see how I could stop myself from comparing." 
--Our Wolves Den

"Ms. Taber has created a beautifully written story that will draw you in with her vivid descriptions, making you feel like you are truly witnessing the story unfold first hand. Each of the characters has depth and seamlessly draws you into their lives. Her world building is fantastic and imaginative without overdoing it with unnecessary drawn-out details. The story flows effortlessly and will capture the reader from the first page and will not let go until the very end."
--The Avid Book Collector

"I fell in love with this book in the first chapter, and that stayed with me all throughout the book. Taber's writing is amazing. She is a master storyteller with a great narrative voice. And the detail she puts into her earthlike world is easily imagined by the reader. It puts them right into the thick of it."

"This story has it all, amazing plot, heartache, loyalty and betrayal, friendship, love, and the powerful hope that the kingdom will become full of glory once again. It is insanely amazing and I can NOT wait for the next book in the series"
--Insane About Books

"I found myself smiling and getting more and more excited to see what was coming next. And at the end, ready to start the next book NOW!"
--Proud Book Nerd

"Over all, I found Kristen's debut novel to be very exciting and fast-paced, and it left me hungry for more. Can't wait for the sequel! This is an indie book that is definitely worth checking out."
