How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days by Kerrelyn Sparks

How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days (The Embraced, #1)

Book one in the Embraced series. This book takes us to a whole new world that is made of five kingdoms. Four are in the main land and the fifth consists of two islands far out to sea. The mainland kingdoms worship men Gods and destroy any that possess magic. The island kingdom worships the Goddesses and welcome those with magic. Any born on the two nights of the year that the two moons line up are born with magical powers and are called the embraced. Luciana was sent to the island as an infant to hide her powers and the fact that she is a twin. This was fine until the King orders her sister to marry his nephew and she dies before she can. This make father desperate so he goes after Luciana who grudgingly agrees to play along to save all their lives. What follows is one of the most comical romances ever because the nephew is embraced as well. Only he is powered by lighting making it impossible for any to touch him. This would make married life a little complicated which I was interested to see how the author solved that one. The answer is ingenious and adds a nice touch to the story overall. This is an excellent fantasy romance novel that I highly recommend to fans of that genre especially if you like magic. The characters are easy to love, the world building is great without too much detail, and the writing is smooth making it impossible to stop turning the pages. I really enjoyed it so it gets 4/5 stars.
