The Golden Link (The Castellum Novels #1) by Keira Moyer

Goodreads Description:

Kain is a rebel leader, a hired protector of the lost princess, and one of the seven chosen to yield an amulet. Tristan is an elitist, the head of the palace guard, and stronger and faster than anyone else with magic; except magic’s source, Arianna. When their three worlds collide, secrets of Arianna’s royal lineage are discovered, and the murderer of her family is revealed. On this tale of betrayal, Arianna learns that all choices come with a price, and hatred can consume the ones you love.

MARY'S REVIEW:

I was approached by the author to read this book.  I read the description and saw the beautiful cover and I thought it sounded (and looked) amazing.

Best part of the book:  OMG! I loved this book from the first page to the cliffhanger at the end.  I love Arianna.  She was raised by her caretaker, Lita, and does not know much about her past.  Kain and his brother Sam were "residents" of the boarding house that was run by Lita.  Each night when Arianna goes to sleep she dreams of this amazing boy, whose become her friend, Tristan. Then all three of their worlds collide together.  Arianna is not sure what is truly going on.  Then she has a "vision" and her life and past are coming to light.

Arianna then must decide who she does trust because she needs to save herself.  

Sounds confusing?!? Well, Keira writes it was better than I can tell it.  This book was an intense read.  I read this book quickly because I did not want to put it down.

Plus I cannot decide if I am Team Tristan or Team Kain .........

Not so great about the book:  WHAT A CLIFFHANGER?!?!?!?!?! The last few chapters were full of twist and turns.  Couple of situations I did not even see coming!  Now I have to wait for book 2.

Trust me when I say, PURCHASE THIS BOOK:
