Queen of the Sylphs (Sylph Series)

Queen of the Sylphs - L.J. McDonald 4.5 out of 5 StarsARC provided by NetGalleyEvery so often a book will come along and sweep you off your feet, capturing your attention from the first sentence until the very last page. It will magically transport you to a world you desperately want to hold on to, and never want to leave. For me, that novel was Queen of the Sylphs. It was a shockingly beautiful tale of creatures that I have come to love, and one new queens struggle to protect a kingdom and provide peace and prosperity to its people.As a new reader to this series (and reading them out of order), I really had no inkling of what this story would be about. I had a general idea of what a Sylph was and the back blurb made the book sound somewhat interesting, so I decided to give it a shot. Immediately I was intrigued by the description of the Sylphs, their powers and abilities, and how they interacted with one another. McDonald is not overly descriptive, however the words she picks and chooses to paint her characters left just enough room for my imagination to run wild. The fantastic world building in this novel, along with the amazing rollercoaster ride of a story, left me in awe chapter after chapter.Queen of the Sylphs is a passionate story of love, betrayal, heartbreak, murder, manipulation, loyalty and honor. Don’t be afraid to dive into the story because you think that you will be lost in the sea of characters. If you truly crave an action packed novel that may leave you crying and screaming, then this is the book for you. And if you are like me and have not read the previous novels, then this book will leave you demanding, begging, and downloading the other books for more.Full Review Can Be Found At:Mother/Gamer/Writer
