“She was a princess, elegant, refined, and all that the position implied. At least, that was she kept telling herself. Because, truth be told, she hated being stuck in this cage, playing this game.”
~CAGE OF DECEIT, Jennifer Anne Davis
|The sequel, CAGE OF DARKNESS, |
released this week!!!!
If you enjoy fantasy realms coupled with political intrigue, you'll definitely want to check out Jennifer Anne Davis. I really like the lack of an archaic regime so frequent in this genre. Allyssa is absolutely allowed to rule and is, in fact, technically stationed above whomever her future husband may be. I like that! Allyssa can be headstrong and impulsive, and I'm looking forward to seeing her grow in the next book. I'm looking forward to seeing character growth in various other characters as well, and finding out if my predictions come true. So far all of my others have, so we'll see!
I also hope to see a more straightforward story path. It bothered me that various characters always had SOMETHING REALLY IMPORTANT to tell Allyssa, things that couldn't wait, and then they'd get interrupted and days would go by before it was brought up again, and then they'd be interrupted AGAIN, rinse and repeat. Obviously not really all THAT important, right? I mean, I get it: save these things for cliffhangers and plot twists in future books. I understand WHY Davis did this...But it was so incredibly frustrating to me and I hope it's not like this for the rest of the series. I also hope it isn't a plot device in the prequel series! Other than that, I did enjoy the novel and look forward to more books from this author!
The brand-new sequel, CAGE OF DARKNESS, is out THIS WEEK!!!!!
