Hey Fellow Readers!
Today I bring you a review of a book where enemies have to work together to save their families. This is a little different from books that I have reviewed, but I believe this is a book that you all will enjoy! Hawksong by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, mixes magic, shifters, and a little hint of Romeo and Juliet into one amazing package.
The book description came from the Goodreads website:
“DANICA SHARDAE IS an avian shapeshifter, and the golden hawk’s form in which she takes to the sky is as natural to her as the human one that graces her on land. The only thing more familiar to her is war: It has raged between her people and the serpiente for so long, no one can remember how the fighting began. As heir to the avian throne, she’ll do anything in her power to stop this war—even accept Zane Cobriana, the terrifying leader of her kind’s greatest enemy, as her pair bond and make the two royal families one.
Trust. It is all Zane asks of Danica—and all they ask of their people—but it may be more than she can give.”
What I really like about this book is that it is told from two POVs, Zane’s and Danica’s. That way you can see into these characters souls and see their thoughts when something happens. Danica is a strong willed hawk shifter, who will stop at nothing to save the people she loves even if that means joining forces with her sworn enemy, Zane. Zane is a cobra who wants to make sure the war between the serpentine and the avians stop. The journey that these two go on will have you enthralled until the very end.
Amelia creates a beautiful world that has never been seen before, and anyone who loves shifters will love this book. It is full of adventure, romance, and a journey for truth. It also has a little bit of a Romeo and Juliet feel, if Romeo and Juliet really didn’t like each other in the beginning.
Go on a journey of understanding with Danica and Zane by dear readers!
