Disenchanted ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Brianna Sugalski
This fantasy tale was a breath of fresh air compare to a lot of others. It was nice to see that yes, the main character Lilac was strong and determined, but also was scared and did not act like she was all powerful. it was ok to be rescued every now and again.
I loved Lilac’s personality. Her love of food is something I can definitely relate to. Haha. Her character development was well though out and a joy to see unfold. I found the plot interesting and somewhat unique. I really enjoyed the storyline and dialogue.
Plus, strong animosity/strong attraction to a handsome supposed enemy? Sign me up! The tension... the friction.... the “I want to smack you and kiss you at the same time” .... :: swoon ::
This will definitely be a well loved series for me!
A Breton princess at the peak of the French Renaissance, Lilac lives prisoner in her parents' castle after a wicked secret is revealed on the eve of her tenth birthday soir e. Years later, her coronation ceremony looms, and between the riotous townsfolk and scheming nobleman bent on snatching the throne, Lilac prepares for the worst... Until a mysterious letter arrives from The Witch of Lupine Grotto, detailing a curious offer to cure her darkness forever. Lilac begrudgingly trades her coronet for a cloak and ventures into the forest Broc liande in pursuit of the impious enchantress at the edge of town. With only the protection of an inherited dagger-and unsolicited help of the sardonic stranger who inserts himself on her quest-she must traverse Broc liande and return in time to claim her rightful position as sovereign monarch. This is the story of a cursed princess, A crestfallen killer, the town that wants them to burn, and the witch that can save them both.
