Review:

After Angelique’s step-father sells her sister to the highest bidder, she accepts Jean’s proposal. After all, he is safe, and his brother, Pierre, left the island years ago and hasn’t been seen since. Jean is a much better option than to risk being married off to a fur trader like her father.

…but that was before the war.

Jean is deported for being an American supporter and Angelique is forced to await his return. And her step-father isn’t so sure he will honor a deal made with an American trader.

With circumstances so changed, will Jean return in time? And if so, will Angelique still want to go with the safe bet?

Forbidden romance, corruption, spies, battle scenes, this book has it all!

I am a big fan of Jody Hedlund’s books. I’ve read all of them. Each one is better than the last, and this one was no exception. In fact, this was one of the best books I’ve read… ever.

I kept giving my son (who isn’t a big reader) updates on the story. It was so intense that he picked up a book (more on his level) and started reading. :)

By Far Hedlund’s Best Book Yet!!!!!!!

Book Description from Amazon:

Michigan Territory, 1814

A voyageur and a young woman swept up in a time of upheaval and danger
discover firsthand the high price of freedom.

The British Army has taken control of Michilimackinac Island and its fort, forcing the Americans to swear an oath of loyalty to the crown in order to retain their land. Pierre Durant is a fur trader who returns after being away from the island for years, only to find the family farm a shambles and those he cares about starving and at the mercy of British invaders.

Torn between the adventurous life of fur trading and guilt over neglecting his defenseless mother, Pierre is drawn deeper into the fight against the British–and into a relationship with Angelique MacKenzie, a childhood friend who’s grown into a beautiful woman. She now finds herself trapped by the circumstances of war and poverty, and the cruelty of her guardian, Ebenezer Whiley.

As tensions mount and the violence rages on, Pierre and Angelique must decide where their loyalties rest and how much they’ll risk for love.

{Book Review} Golden Daughter

Love to read but not sure which book to read next? There are so many books to choose from that it can be difficult to decide. Read this 3-stars book review of, Golden Daughter by Anne Elisabeth Stengl below.

Book Title and Author: Golden Daughter by Anne Elisabeth Stengl

Genre: Fantasy

Reviewed By: Heather Hart of BooklyBooks.com

Star Rating Given: 3-stars

Review:

Sairu is part of a secret order known as the Golden Daughters. They are women who are trained to protect their masters at all cost, but look like delicate, demure females. Sairu knows her job, but life outside the compound is vast. Plus, there is more going on than meets the eye.

Secrets abound.

Will she be able to rise above her training and see the truth before it’s too late?

I won this book during an online scavenger hunt and hadn’t heard of this author before. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t really my cup of tea.

If you like fantasy books, this is probably good one. But fantasy isn’t my favorite genre.

Think, Narnia meets Terry Brooks meets The Last Samurai (yes, I know that’s a movie not a book, but I haven’t read any books about Samurai).

Book Description from Amazon:

BEYOND THE REALM OF DREAMS IS A WORLD SHE NEVER IMAGINED.

Masayi Sairu was raised to be dainty, delicate, demure . . . and deadly. She is one of the emperor’s Golden Daughters, as much a legend as she is a commodity. One day, Sairu will be contracted in marriage to a patron, whom she will secretly guard for the rest of her life.

But when she learns that a sacred Dream Walker of the temple seeks the protection of a Golden Daughter, Sairu forgoes marriage in favor of this role. Her skills are stretched to the limit, for assassins hunt in the shadows, and phantoms haunt in dreams. With only a mysterious Faerie cat and a handsome slave possessed of his own strange abilities to help her, can Sairu shield her new mistress from evils she can neither see nor touch?

For the Dragon is building an army of fire. And soon the heavens will burn.
