After reading three paranormal urban fantasy romances in a row, you can only imagine how happy I was to read, not only something different, but something GOOD Good is the best description I can give of Alanna I wouldn t say it was great It gets pretty close to it, though Some parts of it seem unrealistic to me Alanna being so readily accepted by the boys etc But the story is short, fun, action packed with magic and mystery and high adventure.Alanna it a great character Stubborn, cheeky, do After reading three paranormal urban fantasy romances in a row, you can only imagine how happy I was to read, not only something different, but something GOOD Good is the best description I can give of Alanna I wouldn t say it was great It gets pretty close to it, though Some parts of it seem unrealistic to me Alanna being so readily accepted by the boys etc But the story is short, fun, action packed with magic and mystery and high adventure.Alanna it a great character Stubborn, cheeky, doubtful of herself The supporting characters, ranging from Prince Jonathan, Sir Myles and King George are all great Gary, Raoul and Alex are never fully realized but that s only to be expected with such a short book.It is the rather typical girl in boy s clothing story but the writing is rather good and the sense of funthan makes up for some of the predictability The end isn t quite the blazing glory that I d hope for but it wasn t too bad and there s manybooks to follow so I can t wait.Over all a thoroughly enjoyable read and I can t wait to devour the sequels Edited to Add I just had to mention something, possibly the one thing that really annoyed me There s this evil character in the book, The king s nephew He s clearly evil and it s made very obvious to the reader, but despite all of the evidence, the Prince refuses to believe that this person could possibly betray him.Say what This isn t the first time I ve read something like this in a book and I have to wonder if the author ever imagined what it would be like growing up in court a system usually known for its lies and betrayal and petty squabbling over power.Now, I m sorry, but if I were Queen of the world think about it it really wouldn t be such a bad idea I m not asking you to vote or anything just to ponder the possibility then I d kind of be cautious if I d almost died twice and the only person that could possibly have tried to kill me twice was the first person to inherit the throne upon my death I d at least take a moment to think about it.And why trust anyone implicitly If I were Queen of the World don t you think that title just SUITS me then I d have categories of people Those absolutely trusted without question.Those I trust mostly but keep an eye on.Those I m friendly with but am wary of.Those I don t trust people in this category would either be about to die or already dead The titles of Those Absolutely Trusted Without Question will be awarded posthumously after they ve completed an act to save my life losing theirs in the process I just find this kind of trusting royal a ridiculous characterization If you have a significant ruling power, say a kingdom, then despite receiving it by right of birth might money, someone is going to try and take it from you They may be smarter, better looking andcapable then you but it s still your job to ensure they never wrest power from your cold, dead fingers To do that, you kind of have to use a littlebrain power and a little less blind loyalty Breaths a sigh of relief And I promised myself I d have a break from ranting Oh well, maybe the next review will be rant free
