A fast-paced tale of adventure and soul-stirring romance that will leave you breathless.
Solena trespasses into hostile territory to search for a rare herb to cure the grandfather she loves. When a young enemy soldier captures her and she's accused of being a spy, she discovers just how much she’s risked.
As a soldier, Rundan struggles to please his father, a ruthless army commander. When his father orders him to take the beautiful trespasser to the royal courts, where she’ll surely be tried and executed, Rundan is plagued by an inconvenient desire to protect her.
The handsome young soldier confuses Solena. First, he cruelly captures her, and then treats her with uncommon kindness. When he risks his life to save hers, she fears she may have risked more than her life on her journey…she may have lost her heart.
This tells the story of a young girl who ventures into a hostile country to fetch a herb to heal her grandfather. While there, she is captured by an enemy soldier and the story deals with their relationship and journey. I really enjoyed the story and the world building is really well done. There are only a few characters here, but they are well developed and quite believable. It is really a good blend of romance and fantasy..it reminded me of novels like Graceling. I just wish it was a full novel because there were so many things touched on that could be expanded, so much of the future plot that could be told, and many mysteries that could be explained. I really finished it wanting more. I look forward to reading future stories by Lena Goldfinch as her writing style is really well done.
