Meet Edward, a sixteen-year-old teen who also happened to be the king of England. And to make things even more impressive: he is also dying. Yep, you don’t hear that often. Oh, and his dad sometimes ate people, but only when he got mad and turned in a lion. Totally normal!
We also meet Jane, who is pretty much like all of us: a reader who brings books with her everywhere she goes. Her cousin is king Edward, so they know each other.
Now, we also have G, who is basically half horse and half human. No, he isn’t a centaur, just someone who is a horse by day and a human by night. So this pretty much sums up our three main characters.
They are an interesting combination, don’t you think? I thought so too, when I picked this book up. Before I started reading I thought it was more of a historical fiction read, instead of a fantasy novel, but in the end it is more a mix of both.
I enjoyed the writing style, but had to get used to the story, which took a while. But when the story actually started, it got better and better. I just started loving the story after this point.
Our narrator sometimes breaks the fourth wall, which I have never encountered before in a book. I loved this about this book. It made the book ten times better.
Yes, this book contains some romance, but it isn’t cheesy though! It was actually cute romance (yes, I say cute romance). It was actually the kind of romance I enjoyed! It wasn’t the main focus of the book, which made it also way way better!
I ended up giving the book 4,5 out of 5 stars. It lacked something to give it a 5 star rating, but I did love this book and would recommend it, especially if you like fantasy and historical fiction!
