#HookReview of Fate Abandoned, by L. Danvers

The prose is smooth and the imagery is pro-level. The story is familiar; a princess unhappy with her role in gowns, preferring the “man’s role” of warrior.

The title plus the crown on the cover promised me a displaced royalty story. But the blurb proved it wasn’t. A princess goes off to save her twin brother who is heir to the throne. I dug the blurb and downloaded the book. (It’s FREE)

The prose is smooth and the imagery is pro-level. The story is familiar; a princess unhappy with her role in gowns, preferring the “man’s role” of warrior. It opens with a servant “wrestling her into” a dress┬áto cover bruises from sparring. Not something I haven’t seen before, (Coldwood Saga by K. Bryant) but the smooth prose makes me feel like it’s going to be a good read.
