Review: What a book! This book has elements of everything I look for in fantasy and romance. I don't want to give too much away so I am going to stop before I stop ranting. All I can say is read this book!! You really won't regret it!

Review: Just to get it out of the way; I don’t like romances. They bore the holy crap out of me, so bare that in mind when reading this review. Not what I was expecting all in all. A book about a group of people competing in a tournament to the death, and the reward: absolute power over the land of Thesen.!! What an incredible book that would have been. The plotting and the scheming of the competitors. Their political affiliations and what they plan to do about the current state of the state. What do they like about the current govenrment; what do they want to change? What’s driven them to enter in the first place (you don’t enter this sort of competition if you’ve only got a passing interest in politics) and the current regime!! I’m sure they’d have enough to say about this sort of thing. They’d want to keep their power, so what would they be up to?? That’s the book I was hoping for, and... yeah, to a degree, all of that stuff is in there.... to a degree. However: the focal character, Tobias may as well be named Blandy McBlanderson. He’s entered the competition to save a damsel in distress; he has no interest in being in the tournament; no interest in ruling; no interest in changing the government, just very very blah. I found it insanely difficult to rally for him because he read more as a device for getting the story from point A to point B. Tremendous shame because you can tell from all of the supporting character that the authoress knows how to create a good character. Orion; good character, the intellect; wonderful character with an absolutely Tragic back story. Give him his own book! Delphie: sarcastic and manages to gets shit done; outstanding. Even Kaelo and Brontes; yes they come across as somewhat moustache-twirling caricatures (one even has a ‘spot-the-bad-guy’ eye patch), but they’re both doing something. They’re both aiming for a goal, and they’re both doing it well. It’s the same reason I struggle to get into the Alice in wonderland stories; Alice is a very reactionary character who only has an occasional and accidental impact on the plot, so.. yano, being compared to Lewis Carrol isn’t the worst insult I guess. It’s all the more frustrating because the solution to this problem is so simple and succinct: Tell the story from Leila’s POV! Firstly she’s hands down the best character in the book, but you don’t get to know the full extent of it until too late (yes obvious twist is obvious from page 10 but, there are a few other, smaller but more impressive revelations along the way.) I think it would have been infinitely better. You get all of the political intrigue; you get the tournament as a side note, you get the romance, and you get the archetypical hero saving the damsel in distress; but with a fun little gender twist thrown in. I would have absolutely adored to read that book. Luckily, I hear that’s exactly what we’ll be getting with the follow up novel ‘the saviours sister’. cannot-fucking-wait for that one. As for the saviours champion; as I said at the start; not to my taste, but If you like romances; you may very well enjoy this book. Give it a go.
