Summary from Goodreads: An obstinate girl who will not be married.
A soldier desperate to prove himself.
A kingdom on the brink of war.

With a sharp tongue and an unruly temper, Sage Fowler is not what they’d call a lady―which is perfectly fine with her. Deemed unfit for marriage, Sage is apprenticed to a matchmaker and tasked with wrangling other young ladies to be married off for political alliances. She spies on the girls―and on the soldiers escorting them.

As the girls’ military escort senses a political uprising, Sage is recruited by a handsome soldier to infiltrate the enemy ranks. The more she discovers as a spy, the less certain she becomes about whom to trust―and Sage becomes caught in a dangerous balancing act that will determine the fate of her kingdom.


 

OKAY……………. I don’t feel exactly comfortable for supporting this book after reading about how this book was offensive. I actually really loved this book but I want to say i’m blinded by my enjoyment by not being able to pickup up on the issues of this book. So this is why i’m leaving my rating as blank, because i;m not even sure how I feel about it.

So the main character, Sage Farrow is  an orphan living with her Uncle’s family. And lets just say they don’t have the best relationship out there.

We get to know she intelligent, calculating and just pretty much good at everything.

there’s really no extremely strong friendship between Sage and any other girls in the beginning, not really good thing a book. However she does become friends with a girl in the book, and it seemed really sweet .

There also was a lack of description in everything in a way, I also had nothing really to imagine, the author just kept repeating darker, or dark, It was very difficult and could be interpreted in several different ways. And can be harmful and offensive.

 

The pacing was slow but i absolutely loved it, it was really written well in my opinion. And the romance was slow burning and not instalove(which is a major plus),  They developed a nice friendship, and it was extremely well written.

 

This book also slightly reminded me of The Kiss of Deception, with the whole characters POVs.

  1. I totally know how it feels when you really love a book and then you find out what other people thought about it which makes you question your opinion a bit. This book sounds really cool to me by just reading your review and the synopsis. I personally enjoy reading about individuals who do not fit their intended places in society and forge their own route. Great review!
