(Mortal Enchantment #0.5)
By Stacey O'Neale


Length: 111 pages

Published By: Phoenix Reign Publishing

Every sacrifice has consequences.

Sixteen-year-old Rowan has spent most of his life living among the mortals—learning to control the element of fire, impatiently awaiting the day his vengeful mother, Queen Prisma, will abdicate her throne. When he finally returns to Avalon for his coronation, his mother insists he must first prove his loyalty to the court by completing a secret mission:

Kill Kalin, the half-human, half-elemental daughter of the air court king.

Willing to do anything to remove his mother from power, he agrees to sacrifice the halfling. He returns to the mortal world with his best friend, Marcus, determined to kill the princess. But as he devises a plan, he starts to question whether or not he's capable of completing such a heinous task. And what price he will pay if he refuses?

My Review:

This was an awesome opening to a series! I was intrigued from the first chapter. It's an interesting world Mrs. O'Neale has built and I can't wait to see what's in store for everyone! I can already feel a plot twist sneaking up on me C:

Even though the cover should have warned me and I didn't bother to read the synopsis it took me reading the first 10 pages on my iPad to realize the character telling the story was actually a guy. I had to put down my iPad and actually think through all that had taken place for it to make more sense.

Other then the initial mix up, I started to like Rowan. When his punishment took place I found myself cringing with pain right along with him. Even though I didn't agree with his actions by the end of this prequel I'm still rooting for him.

We barely get to see Kalin. Even though Rowan is enamored with her from the first moment he lays his eyes on her, we only meet her through his eyes. She looks sad most of the time when she's alone, she likes her privacy and she puts on an act for her friends. That's the sum of what Rowan (consequently the reader) knows about her as a person.

I can't wait to pick up the first book in this series. It seems promising!

My Favorite Quotes:

"Could saving thousands justify the death of one who deserved to live?"

"After I was brutalized I didn't think any of them were worth saving."

"I know there's at least one girl out there capable of seeing through your bullshit and I can't wait to meet her."
