Remnant of Power
by J.A. Deakin
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
GENRE: YA Fantasy
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BLURB:
Sent to marry the brutal King Ulric of Arvad, seventeen year-old Princess Yavenna is already trying to plan her escape. Then she discovers powers she never knew she had, as well as the handsome, elusive Mal, who has a secret of his own. But as the wedding day draws closer, Yavenna has a heart-breaking choice – use all her strength to flee the ancient castle, or marry the King and set his thousands of slaves free. And can she ally herself with rebel forces in time to save Mal, or is the magic the King commands too powerful?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
EXCERPT:
Yavenna wiped her nose on the back of a wet hand. Fixed in her mind, like a painting, was a memory of the last time she’d seen her mother. Her mother had lifted the pendant over her head, given it to Yavenna, and then hugged her. As her mother had taken off the pendant, her face had brightened for a moment, as if a weight had been removed, but only for a few minutes, then the sickly look had returned.
The pendant. She held the soapy lump of silver up in front of her face and stared at it. Until the last few days she’d never ever known it to heat up. She turned it over between her fingers, studying its uneven surfaces.
A sudden knock on the door made her jump.
“Yavenna, Your Highness, a footman is here. The King has asked to see you before dinner.”
“Tell him I’ll only be a few minutes.” She climbed out of the bath and wrapped a towel around herself. She walked up to a large gilt mirror. Sticking her chin out and her shoulders back she whispered to her reflection.
“You’d better stop all this feeling sorry for yourself, Yavenna. You’re on your own, but guess what? You’ve never let yourself down yet. You’ve got two things to do; firstly, try to forget about the slaves, and secondly think of a way to get out of this marriage. So you’d better just get on with it.” Tucking the towel in firmly she pushed open the door and went to get dressed.
My Review:. ⭐⭐⭐⭐.5

This is my first book this author and I enjoyed it. I was surprised in a way that I did. This cover was beautiful and the blurb wanted me to read more.

I really liked the story line of this book and it was a easy pace read. Loved the characters . Yavenna I loved getting to know. Her journey through what she goes through has lows and highs. Finding out what she can do with her powers was quite interesting. Overall a great read and if you are a YA Fantasy you definitely want to check this book out. 

I volutarly received a ARC of this book from Goddess Fish Promotions to give a honest review.
