This is a new author for me, but I happened to win one of her books through a Goodreads giveaway which made me do a little research into what types of books she likes to write. This is book one in a series called The Elementals which implies some type of magic will be involved. The book definitely delivers on this aspect which made me happy as I tend to gravitate towards books that do. The main character is called Larkspur, and she is the child of a King with his mistress. Like usual this upsets the wife, ans she plots revenge which unfolds as the story progresses. The world building aspects are pretty good, and the characters are well developed making me like some while wishing violence on others. The story unfolds following a natural progression, and the ending sets things up nicely for the next book while still providing closer for this story. Overall I really liked it which earns it 4/5 stars.
