Title: A Clearing in the Forest
Author: Kim Love Stump
Genre: YA Fantasy
Book Summary:. Princess Adriana is about to leave the Kingdom of Ayrden on the Journey of her sixteenth year.
If she is ever to ascend to the throne, Adriana must go—alone and unarmed—into the unknown. She’s been trained and gifted for the journey, just like all the royals who preceded her—even the ones who never returned.
Adriana leaves Ayrden on her brother’s black stallion the day after her birthday celebration, with bravery in her heart and hopes for a quick return. When three paths emerge, one of grass, one of gold, and one of gemstones, she chooses the pragmatic path of grass. Although it seems safe, and the landscape familiar, she soon finds she will have to overcome nearly impossible challenges. Ultimately, an unexpected friendship not only changes Adriana, but the very kingdom she someday hopes to rule. The question is, will the friendship turn into everlasting love?
My Review: 4 out of 5 stars
We follow Princess Adriana on her journey to adulthood. Adriana’s Journey at times seems aimless, wandering, full of stops and starts, leaving her wondering whether, for all her training, whether she is actually prepared for the trials and how she will know when she has completed them. It is not until she finally finds her best friend and her soul-mate that she discovers any agency of her own.
This book was amazing I absolutely loved the characters especially Adriana. This book made me feel like I was in the story and it was so hard to put down. I read this book in a day. I am looking forward to see What happens next in this adventure. What a delightful read. Thanks to YA Bound Blog Tours for allowing me to read this book. I highly recommend anyone to read this book. 🙂
