I read this book almost a year ago shortly after it came out. In all fairness I am a fan of Meredith Bond. The reason I’m writing this post now is because I’m getting ready to read the second in this series. I suggest you try this book, novella. It is about Morgan Vallentyn who was born to have power and seems to have none; or at least none he can access. Then there is Adriana Hayden someone who is born to the rules of Regency society. Once they meet there is magic. I’m not giving anything away in this but I will say it’s a good read and Bond is always well written without being overly wordy. She creates a world that is full of wonder, mystery and something else that’s just fun. I suggest you try it.
