Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:


When sixteen year old Charlize finds herself unmistakably lost in the forest with no memory how she got there, it was easy for her to assume the angel face boy who saves her was there to. But little did she know that couldn’t be further from the truth. 


With a brush of death, she finds new reasons to live after the unexplained death of her father. Her only regret in last three years was letting the one boy she could have loved get away. 

Plunged into a world not of her making, there are those that will hunt her, a foe that calls her Little Queen, and her torn heart. Most of all, she will have to remember and face her memories if she is to survive. 


My Rating: 3 out of 5 stars.

Disclaimers: I received a copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not obligated to write a good review nor did I receive any compensation for writing this review.

Why did I decide to turn the pages? It was on Netgalley and I liked the cover. 

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: It was an intriguing book. I admit that I had mixed feelings about it.

I wasn't sure what to think going into it, but it was better in some ways than I thought and worse in other ways.

The characters annoyed me slightly, and the writing was a little bit forced at times.

However, the overall plot was intriguing and definitely caught my interest.

I think fans of fantasy might really enjoy this one. 

Major Strengths: Interesting plot.

Major Weaknesses: Characterization wasn't perfect. 

So why 3 stars? Enjoyable, but not without it's flaws. 

Warnings/Side-notes: Fairly clean. 

The Wrap-up: An enjoyable, fun novel. 

Love,
