Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
I obviously really enjoyed this story, per my star rating above. As you know, I’m stingy on handing out 5 stars ratings. This book is YA (Young Adult), and this middle-aged adult couldn’t put it down. I enjoy the switcheroo type stories then this had a Merlin type backdrop that put me in heaven. I thought it was a great story, there are certainly some mixed reviews on it, but stories and entertainment are subjective.
Fantastic tale set in Medieval times about a girl (Alexa) and her twin brother (Marcel) in their roles for survival upon their parents deaths. Alexa will assume her new identity as Alex to join her brother in the king’s army. Certainly no damsels in distress here. Alex is a powerful character in disguise. His/her character growth is well paced and revealing as most teenaged girls.
