As a fan of fairy tales, this YA novel had everything I could have wanted. A strong heroine, a vivid world, and a plot that kept me reading way past my bedtime. Our heroine Maya, after being habitually mistreated by her father's court, agrees to marry a stranger from an unknown kingdom. As the new queen of Akaran, Maya comes into her own and discovers her own power and inner strength. I truly felt like I was immersed in another world and I was particularly invested in the second half of the novel (no spoilers, but there's a demon horse that's freaky cool). For fans of Beauty and the Beast or the myth of Hades and Persephone.
