In order to save her home, the lives of her family, and all of humanity, Madly must learn to wield her exceptional powers and recapture the Lore before it’s too late and all is lost. But Madly’s only help are her two best friends and the Sentinel, Jackson Hamilton, that threatens both her heart and her destiny. Madly has loved Jackson as long as she can remember, but he is the one thing even a princess can’t have. Can she resist love to become the queen she was fated to be? Or can she find a way to have both?This novelette introduces you to Madly and prepares you for the quest of a lifetime.
For 53 pages I was in my seat utterly happy with this story then BAM over! That was such a great introduction to something that I feel is going to be an awesome series and I cannot wait to continue on with finding more out about Madly & *ahem* Jackson!!
I loved the writing. For this to be such a short book it gave me just the information I needed to satisfy me, and keep me wanting more. I cannot wait to finish the series because there was so much mystery. It left me want to know what the heck was going on. Not only with the "situation" but the mystery between Madly and Jackson.
I recently just this year read my first mermaid story, and I can't seem to get enough. I do not want to say too much, this novella just being 53 pages. But I will tell you that M. Leighton has put just the right amount of mystery, and not enough romance to keep me reading to find out what is going to happen, and hopefully see something between Madly & Jackson that will fill in that need for more romance.
