Well, one good thing about having a tooth extracted and having to limit what you do, there is plenty of time for reading! That's two off my list that were waiting to be read on my Kindle.
This is the story of Marni - a beautiful young girl, living with her Grandfather and selling flowers from their garden. But Marni's grandfather has a secret..... he was once a king and Marni is a princess with a very mysterious and powerful father. The creatures of the forest have always been close to Marni, but now, the threaten the kingdom as they move closer and closer onto the lands the people need to survive. Can Marni learn the truth and save them?
This book had so much potential when it started. I loved parts one and two but in part three, though that aspect of the story is necessary, the plot started to drag. There were many unanswered questions. I suspect that this is a series, though to be honest, I haven't looked. I would be curious to learn what happens with Marni's story. She is a very strong female lead and I definitely enjoyed where she displayed her independence.
I gave this one 3 stars and will continue on if it is a series at some point. On to Tell the Wolves I'm Home for book club.
