I loved Megan Linski's kingdom saga but i ADORE the Rhodi Saga
Crescentia is a country where some states are fighting to maintain their freedom. And standing between The Hunter's Guild and the enslavement of some of the countries are the Rhodi soldiers. But their numbers are dwindling. Twins Dyliana and Devin find themselves orphaned in the midst of an accident and join the Rhodi under the care of two Rhodi siblings Tavana and Talidin.
The characters in this book are all amazing. True you had the main characters but ALL of them were 3-dimensional and so well developed with their unique personalities. Dylan (Dyliana) was the fierce sister who suffered alone, Devin was the nerdy and sweet twin.
For me the reason i loved this book so much was because i could relate to Dylan's loss and all her emotions, And when Talidin comforted her i felt like he was talking directly to me. I loved watching her reconnect and learn to trust other people and to allow someone to help her, was so touching and again, quite relatable. I'm trying to make this review less "personal" but i just connected on a personal level with this character. Honestly speaking, i have never ever connected with a book and character as much as this one and Dylan.
If you're looking for a romance book then this only has a a little bit because i think it only comes in the second book. This book is about a girl finding a family after she lost everything and most of all it was about a daughter and a father finding each other.
I cannot explain how much i cried when i read this book. It was a vivid roller coaster of pure and raw emotions for me especially. And her relationship with Talidin was gold, it made me cry and it made me so happy i can't even describe it. Their relationship blossoms under the harsh circumstances and I found myself getting attached to these characters as much as they were to each other.
I may have mentioned this before but i am a total sucker for brother-sister relationships and this book had loads so i was completely satisfied! On one side you had Dylan and Devin and the other Tavana and Talidin.
Aside from all the crying there were some moments you just couldn't help to but laugh like when Talidin and Dylan were paired up as master and student their reactions where gold!!!!!!
Before they were like
and then after a LOT of work they were like
Amazing feels and beautiful character building aside, the plot was very well developed and really interesting. There were loads of unexpected twists the author revealed and i loved watching everything play out!
Awesome unique characters, action, comedy, twists, love, friendship, the power of family, everything collides in this gripping roller coaster of raw emotion!
