PDF READ A Stolen Kiss Stolen Royals #1
This was a uick cute innocent read This fairytale story was different from what I expected I enjoy so much seeing characters grow and this appened with every one of them Granted we didn t go that deep into their thoughts and who they are but you learn to care for them as the book goes on The plot was interesting enough you can guess the big reveals I mean it s a fairytale Anyways it isn t an iconic book that I ll spend ours obsessing over and I probably won t think much of it in the future
BUT I ENJOYED READING IT 35 I enjoyed reading it 35 Review copy provided by Swanifide Publishing for an onest reviewIf you adored The Potion Diaries then I ve found you re next love You re welcome No but seriously this book and The Potion Diaries share a similar writing style and both follow friends on a magical uest plotlines The relationships and characterization is also similar and both books deal with royalty The one major difference is that A Stolen Kiss is set in a traditional fantasy world than The Potion Diaries and I think this is where it loss some of its appeal to me The Potion Diaries is set in a modern magical world than A Stolen Kiss so it felt uniue and different to books that I ve read before A Stolen Kiss was can I say traditional again I think I ve said it already but it followed a plotline that didn t feel nearly as uniue I m avoiding the word cliched What She Wanted here because I didn t think it was cliched necessarily just not that different either I think I m rambling now so moving onI lovedow fairytale like the story was It The Uninvited had the most whimsical of writing styles and was fun imaginative and easy to breeze through But it was also a little simple Okay that s a bitarsh What I mean is that while the storyline was engaging and even threw me a little at times with all its twists and turns the action was never really that thrilling or gripping The baddies always got away a little too easily The convenience of DerricDaniel s magic was just that convenient The good guys were always going to win There was no urgency to the action or doubt And I think that made the story feel a little Ars poetica halfearted at times I never felt the emotional pull of the uest that we could truly lose one of the characters or Decoding Air Travel have something awfulappen I never felt that panic and I really wanted to The relationships in this book like a lot of middle grade books were also the case of insta bonding Yes that s a word I just made up Bu what it mean is that everyone seemed to become best friends super close friends within days of meeting each other I get stressful situations and near death experiences are great bonding opportunities but Humphrey and DanielDerric s friendship while never feeling fake was too easy Maybe I m just a grumpy old lady at eart but spending time with someone before declaring them your bestie to me but spending time with someone before declaring them your bestie to me uite important And the romance suffered from this too Maria and DerricDaniel felt inevitable so I could never really get on board there romance There wasn t much chemistry or tension between them With all the being said the story truly did amuse me I liked the characters I cared about what appened to them I enjoyed the world and seeing the new creatures The epilogue wasn t actually that bad it wrapped things up well and I feel wholly satisfied I m confused at what the seuel is going to be about but I ll be reading it anyway What a fun ride What I thought was going to be a light amusing predictable fairy tale romance turned out to be an exciting complex and fun coming of age story with amusing and entertaining characters packed full of surprises The 4 main characters are fun interesting diverse all experience personal growth and all are integral to the story s charm The supporting characters are also appealing each in Keys to the Ultimate Freedom hisher own way I liked following Derric s coming of age story watchingis rising confidence Hollands Grimoire of Magickal Correspondences his acceptance ofis power and قصههای خوب برای بچههای خوب --- ۶ his recognition ofis capabilities But also Maria and Sarah grow braver stronger and become independent Humphrey is for me the most entertaining character He s brave Resilient he s understandinge s open minded Rozwazania o Psalmach he s funny ande s loyal All four of the main characters are Grumpy, Frumpy, Happy, Snappy A Silly Monster Opposites Book heroes in my book view spoilerMaria attacks and Humphrey kills the beornach both exhibiting great bravery Maria Humphrey and Sarah all work together to get Derric the cure Sarah stands up.

The curse as Maria magically bound to someone else who is then the only person who can break the curse view spoilerThe Reason Prince Humphry Was Unable Prince Humphry was unable break Maria s curse as we find out early on is because the curse for mysterious reasons as The Age of Disruption her bound to Derric This is also why Derric keepsis identity a secret and goes under the name Daniel instead He knows that because Burning bridges his mother cursed the princess and because the curse bound the princess to Derric Mariah and Humphrey will thinke s the badguy and part of the problem if they know who Freshman Scandal (Freshman Dorm, he really iside spoiler 55 out of 10 This is a Disney like story about mature characters inside a fairytale ish world with fairytale ish stuff which is told from different POVs Rembrandts Jews has a few twists one is predictable one is not and is rich withumor and wits You ll travel though magic lands with a cursed princess who s falling for a stable boy Refusing His Second Chance her funny and charming betrothed prince who s in love with another girl the stable boy with a gift for magic and forbidden love for the princess andis sister in law who at the same time is our princess s maid and thank god isn t in love with anyone Each of them is longing for freedom courage friendship and Brand Name Dates happiness After all this is a tale and they are aware of it so everyone needsis or Confectionately Yours Collection (Confectionately Yours, herappy ending Adventures in this book are too teen ish for my liking but the characters thoughts and feelings aren t It s a bit confusing but kinda uniue too The ending is in the best cartoons traditions and you know what I d love to see A Stolen Kiss on a big screen I received a free digital copy from the authorpublisher via Netgalley in exchange for an The Maiden Dinosaur honest feedbackIn A Stolen Kiss Maria the princess of Opea was cursed as a child by the sorceress Gilda Now Maria with theelp of Swing Trading with Oliver Velez Course Book with DVD her maid Sarah Sarah s brother and stableboy Derric ander betrothed Humphrey set off on a mission to find Gilda and get the curse reversed This ends up in ad adventure full of secrets to be revealed magical creatures like centaurs and shapeshifters plus one epic showdown with an evil sorcererThis was what it says on the tin a fluffy fun romantic fairytale Most of the story was fairly predictable but it was easy to read and fun while it lasted I enjoyed most of the characters who were all generally Angus, Thongs And Full Frontal Snogging honest and good people I liked the bromance between Derric and Humphrey and the fact that Humphrey wasn t a cliche preening poncey Prince though I did vomit every timee said Mumsy but someone with a good eart and a firly good ead on The Emperor of Nihon-Ja (Rangers Apprentice, his shoulders I would say that the writing was certainly not the best I d ever read and the dialogue did suffer a bit from the too much being said all the time thing which ends up in it sounding very forced and unrealistic in my view Some of the rules about the magic and the curses were a bit confusing at times for me as well but I did enjoy the threads of magic Derric found andow Nora (Sunfire, he could use them andow they responded But for a debut novel this was a good one and I d recommend it for anyone looking for a princessfairytale read On Hold for now because my kindle is doing something where all my books either are there or disappear I don t like to stop reading for a week Edit 5 26 16 I enjoyed this
