At the Other End:
Will she give up her dream to follow her heart?
Bryn Aven is determined to gain status amongst the Kanin, the most powerful of the hidden tribes. But as a half-blood, winning respect is a huge challenge. Bryn's almost-human community distrusts people, and those from other tribes are almost as suspect.
She has just one goal to get ahead: to join the elite guard protecting the Kanin royal family. And Bryn's vowed that nothing will stand in her way, not even a forbidden romance with her boss, Ridley Dresden.
But her plans are put on hold when fallen hero Konstantin starts acting dangerously. Bryn loved him once, but now he's kidnapping Kanin children - stealing them from hidden placements within human families. She's sent to help stop him, but will she lose her heart in the process?
The only downside that I had was that the blurb was misleading. It made me think that Konstantin was some sort of ex-boyfriend that she had loved, not some guy that she looked up to and had a silly schoolgirl crush on because he was basically the elite Royal Guard, and all round wonderchild. They only have the prologue together as well, and that's the first time that they actually meet! I seriously love everything except for the blurb. It made me feel like the original series where everyone falls in love with someone after just knowing them for not even a day, and she Bryn felt too good for that.
This is definitely a series to pick up. I would recommend reading the Trylle trilogy beforehand, but honestly, it kind of isn't absolutely necessary as all their practices and everything is explained in this book, as it is in the original trilogy. Nevertheless, this book demands to be read.
