The book was given to me from the author for an honest review.

Firstly this was just like sleeping beauty, snow white or little red riding hood. A fairy tale that our parents read to us before bed-time, maybe the escape of Princess Madeline is the re-telling of a fairy-tale, I am not sure but just loved it, it made me feel like a child again. This is one to have on your fairy-tale book shelf.

Madeline a princess is being married off, but doesn’t want the life of a princess she wants adventure while her father pushes her harder into what is right for the Kingdom. At first Madeline rebels in small ways not wearing a dress laid out for her, being rude to guests but the King soon pushes too hard and Madeline escapes the Kingdom going on an unexpected adventure one she hadn’t exactly been dreaming about, she gets kidnapped by bandits.

Knights are dispatched to find Princess Madeline. Daniel is amongst them, the one who loves the princess not because of her status but because of the person she is.

The author takes us on a magical journey of the Kingdom with adventure and mostly love. An enchanting story one that all young girls “Princess’s” should read or even for some of us that never grew up. (Guilty)

Thank you for allowing me to read your work.

O god this was one of those books that I was screaming at 95% the way through and then the last 5% made it all okay.

Okay where to start firstly I loved Gabby she was a loner who always kept herself at a distance, which I didn’t blame her, we all love male attention but the attention that Gabby received was creepy and unnatural. I could understand her distancing herself from the world, also being switched from foster home to foster home did nothing to help her trust issues, so when Gabby comes across Sam a werewolf she starts to find some answers to her unnatural gifts (which I think are pretty cool)  this isn’t your normal irritating werewolf story, we see it as finding a group of people within their own world with their own rules, it’s fascinating it’s not this is my pack against your pack but how one pack operates I loved learning and watching Gabby grow with them, even though she is kind of human. My feelings on Sam I am still unsure feeling very disappointed in him, for not being totally honest with Gabby when what she needed was someone she could truly trust. But when she is marked by Clay the story gets interesting and this is where I started screaming at every single page.

It’s the weirdest love story I have ever read Clay being a werewolf seems to understand Gabby more than she does herself so he takes matters into his own hands not wanting to frighten her, I don’t want to say too much and give the story away but I will say for 95% of the book he says nothing – really I am not messing nothing but he doesn’t need to his actions speak louder than words, but when he does speak my stomach did a little flop and I let out a sigh, yes it was worth waiting for, just a line or two and I was in love.

So basically when I finished I felt the story was only getting started and I want the second book like now. Just can’t wait to read it. Very unusual story but one that brings love forward as something gentle and patient yet with enough roughness to me you sigh sigh sigh. Love it.

I wanted to think that no one in the world could miss her; as much as I did. I wanted to feel offended by her death. I wanted to wrap up my grief, frustration and anger; over my sister’s death, and never think about it again. There was nothing anyone could tell me; and mostly they never attempted to tell me anything…about her or how I was handling her death. I had difficulty in most daily activities.

I didn’t want to get out of bed. I was disheartened by people whose lives seem to keep going. I didn’t understand why, even the world, seemed to keep spinning. There was pain, in simply, hearing her name. I couldn’t even think of that day in January without crying. What had become worse…I had tried to hide the pain. I was destroying myself with the thought that I wasn’t strong enough to live without her. But in a moment of love; someone whom I loved, came to me with an act of kindness.

She lovingly pointed out to me that my sister’s death did not happen to ME. She said I was experiencing the loss, yes, but my sister died…I didn’t. She may have never understood the light bulb that came on, in my soul that day.

At that moment, I understood, my feelings of anger came from one place…the thought…no…the FACT…that I had to go on living. And I had to go on living…without Melissa. I had to figure out a way to WANT to get out of bed. I had to devise a plan that would help me survive this horrific loss. I had to admit my pain…own it.

I went through so many cycles of grief it was ridiculous; and then I went through them again.

This precious thing we call life…is temporary. We must remember to make the most of it. In this book, you will find the raw emotions of my journey. I loved my sister and in a single moment…In the Blink of an Eye…she was gone.
