FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Ilsa is exactly what the title of the book implies. She is broken. She has been beaten and abused and cast away by the ones who should love and protect her. When a chance to start fresh is given to her, she is full of hope yet fear. But things are never easy for her, and heartache follows the broken dove because she does not know how to fly.
I loved this book. It wasn’t as good as The Golden Dynasty, but it was a close second. It is full of danger, action, romance, heartbreak, and so much intrigue. It was hard to walk away and get anything done. I only have one more in the series, and I will be sad to walk away from this fantastical land.
Broken Dove is nothing less than 5 Boundless Stars.
