Jessamin has been an outcast since she moved from her island home of Melei to the dreary country of Albion. Everything changes when she meets Finn, a gorgeous, enigmatic young lord who introduces her to the secret world of Albion’s nobility, a world that has everything Jessamin doesn’t—power, money, status…and magic. But Finn has secrets of his own, dangerous secrets that the vicious Lord Downpike will do anything to possess. Unless Jessamin, armed only with her wits and her determination, can stop him.Things I Liked:
This book was really entertaining. I LOVED our heroine, Jessamin. I loved how she was different in her world, from somewhere outside, but White kept her from being stereotypically an outsider. She reminded me of Nimira from Magic Under Glass, except Jessamin was smarter, stronger, and so different from what you expect. I really liked the magic in the story and I loved that it's a stand alone. The love story was good too, if a bit hard to believe. Mostly, I found the magic system and story to be quite fascinating and the characters exhibited my favorite Kiersten White banter. Enjoyed it all around!
Things I Didn't Like:
Hm, not sure I can remember. I just quite liked it.
