Title: A Breath Of Sunlight
Author: Sydney Winward
Series: Sunlight And Shadows, Book One
Genre: Fantasy Romance
One prince. One Valkyrie. A kingdom to save.
Don’t show compassion for men. Never save a man’s life. And no matter what, never fall in love with someone you must ultimately kill. But some rules are meant to be broken, even if it means risking your life by betraying your valkyrie sisters.
The plan was simple—attack the Pits, kill the men, save the women. But when Skaja runs into a fae man she can’t kill, she instead breaks all the rules to save him.
Prince Calle was sold into slavery by his jealous brother, and he would do anything to taste freedom again, even put his trust in a dangerous valkyrie. To protect his people and gain the throne, he and Skaja must trust each other. But neither of them expected trust to turn into something more, and the cost of love has a much steeper price than either of them anticipated.
After joining a book group of fellow readers and writers on Twitter, this was February’s read and I was happy to dive in and read it. And I wasn’t disappointed.
I very much enjoyed the story, characters, and writing. Often, I found I wanted to slow down, because I didn’t want the world I was experiencing to end.
Calle and Skaja had such great chemistry, and I especially liked how blunt and witty Skaja was as a harpy Valkyrie. Despite being taught to hate and distrust men, she finds that Calle is nothing like the men she was taught about as she grew up.
I’m looking forward to reading the next book in this series!
Until next time,
