Of Heart and Wings Review
This book is a great add to anyone YA Fantasy collection. This book has one of the sweetest love stories in it that I’ve read in a long time. The ultimate theme of trust, acceptance and support will speech to anyone who reads this novel. One of my biggest problems in the YA fantasy section is proper representation. Everyone wants and should see themselves as the hero in a novel. Where “typical” YA novels have LGBTQ relationships in them, they are never the main storyline, more given the writing justice they deserve. This world that Debbie has build is everything our world should be regarding acceptance.
Raiden, the firstborn son of the King of the sixth, is not ready to step up to the throne when a situation occurs that makes that possibility more immediate. Meanwhile, Egan is a blacksmith’s apprentice with a secret—he is a dragon shifter in a world where dragons don’t exist. After an event, these two meet and a friendship quickly blossoms. As they both discover themselves, they are both the sweetest and so awkward in their emotions and understanding their feelings; like fawn learning how to use their legs. These boys act their age in the novel, there’s no impossible task set upon them by fate (yet…) and they aren’t active like 30 year olds when they are 17.
I spend a good amount of time reading more serious, dramatic, and (sexually) explicit novels, and this story felt like a breath of fresh air and lightness. This heartfelt beginning to this series should be an easy pick up for anyone looking for a fluffy love story.
Because, Love is Love after all .
I would like to thank Debbie McQueen for sending me a free copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.
