Blog Tour - Sigil in Shadow



About the bookEllary Dane knows she deserves to die

- but not for a crime she didn’t commit.

She believes her 19 year streak of bad luck is over when she accidentally saves the life of a highborn officer and is taken to court to study under the tutelage of the most renowned healer in the kingdom. Suspicions surround her sudden presence, making her more enemies than allies. She soon finds herself ripped from her warm palace sheets and thrown into a dank prison cell.

As nobles vie for their spot on the throne, Ellary learns she is bound to a secret history that could change the kingdom forever. If she is going to break her chains, she must trust the charming stranger labeled as her accomplice and face the lie that pushed her into the silent warfare of highborn society.

My review: Constance Roberts really knows how to start a book with a bang and keep the intensity going throughout the whole thing so that you won't want to put the book down! I loved the plot of this one from beginning to end. 

It starts with our heroine Ellary. She finds her father fighting an unknown foe in their stable. And doing just what anyone would do, she finds the nearest thing she can to defend him. It happens to be a shovel. She smacks the man in the head and both she and her father are sure that he's dead. She feels terrible, she's killed a highborn officer. But luck smiles upon her when she takes a strong smelling potion from a friend and the man appears to come back to life.

Still...he can recognize her and she spends time waiting for someone to come after her. She's not surprised when another officer comes for her a few weeks later to take her to the king. But she is surprised when she learns the reason. The officer that she thought she killed has told everyone that she brought him back to life and now the king is expecting her to make a potion that will revive dead people. Not knowing quite what to do, she agrees to try and this starts her adventures in the king's household.

I love the number of characters and groups that are in this book. There are a bunch of classes of highborn people all grouped in families. There are also plenty of lowborn people to get to know. 

I love the way that Ellary has always thought that she was one thing, only to find out during her adventure in the castle that she's really another thing. But that doesn't stop her destiny. I love the way that she eventually decides that she doesn't really care what others think she is, she wants to be what she thinks she is and has always wanted to be. She's such a strong character, a great roll model for our young women trying to become what they're meant to become.

I love the way this book has action and adventure, mystery, and a touch of love with a completely clean plot line. Such a great book that I didn't want to put down!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
