Enter an alternate 1920’s world of magic and adventure in this gripping fantasy romance… 

Orphaned and alone, Jasminda is an outcast in her homeland of Elsira, where her magical abilities are feared. When ruthless soldiers seek refuge in her isolated cabin, they bring with them a captive – an injured spy who steals her heart. 

Jack’s mission behind enemy lines nearly cost him his life, but he is saved by the healing power of a mysterious young woman. Together they embark on a perilous journey straight into the heart of a centuries-old conflict. 

Thrust into a hostile society, Jasminda and Jack must rely on one another even as secrets jeopardize their bond. As an ancient evil gains power, Jasminda races to unlock a mystery that promises salvation. 

The fates of two nations hang in the balance as Jasminda and Jack must choose between love and duty to fulfill their destinies and end the war. 
Recommended for readers 17+. 

I received this
book for free in return for an honest review.
 
First let me say Penelope knows her way around
a keyboard.  Her writing style is on
point. It is jealousy worthy.
Now for
the review. I didn’t know this when I volunteered to read the book, but this is
a romantic fantasy. I had not known there was such a thing. I guess I shouldn’t be
surprised.  I’m a sucker for action and
adventure and in beginning the two main characters, Jasminda and
Jack are trying to get from point A to Point B while trying to get away from the bad
guys. Again Penelope wrote the stuff out of this book. The settings were clear
and beautiful, her magic systems was clear and defined, and her fight scenes
were Wonderful. But once they got to their destination, 1/3 of
the way through the book, it focused on political intrigue, which I’m not a big fan
of so I had a hard time staying interested.
Diversity:
5
Story: 3
Characterization:
4 (Jasminda was cool, but I didn’t really connect with any of the other
characters)
Would I
recommend it?
Only if you like your action and adventure with a healthy dose of romance and political
intrigue. This is a romance so there are a couple of racy romantic sex
scenes.
