Acies Addy finds herself in a world where she's not the only one with a dangerous secret When she discovers the truth Addy must take matters into her own hands The stakes Her chance at true love and the life she's meant to li I had a cup of coffee as I reached the half way mark of this book which naturally set my heart racing and got me all jittery So there s a chance some of my enthusiasm for this story is a matter of all the intensity colliding with coffee But that doesn t change that this is a really well written book At first I thought it was a little closer to middle grade than YA because of Addy s simple point of view despite Emily Whitman s descriptive and interesting writing But as Addy settled into her new life the story really came to life and contained a maturity and absolutely beautiful parallel with falconry There was an immediacy to the story despite it being utterly predictable In fact that predictability almost created tension because I couldn t wait for Addy to figure it all out and admittedly some of that anticipation may have been the coffee And I loved the choices Addy made view spoilerI mean most stories are full of the young independent girl who refuses to marry for anything but love and defies convention hide spoiler
