Rogue’s Pawn opens with the heroine going through the motions of what has become a humdrum life. She accidentally provokes a spell that has her tumbling into a totally different world. A world that is a cross between Oz and Alice In Wonderland.

Well let me tell you, this fantastic story kept me turning the pages. Each of the characters from Gwynn (the Heroine) to Rogue (the hero) and their supporting cast was brought to life by Jeffe Kennedy in a fanciful and animated fashion. I could actually see each scene by an amazing choreography of action and dialog.

I felt so bad for what the heroine endures; at times I wondered how she could have gotten through it. The hero, although easy to dislike at first, redeems himself by the end when we learn his motivation. I have to say Ms. Kennedy has quite the imagination to pull off such an entangled, but delightful story in Rogue’s Pawn. I will definitely be first in line for the next installment of the Covenant of Thorns.

Rogue’s Pawn is a great read that will snare you from the beginning. The writing is phenomenal, which makes the Fae world a magical and colorful place for the reader. Definitely one of my favorite books thus far.

Memorable Quotes:

What a nice guy that Rogue.

”I had hoped that your irascrible nature was due to the pain and that the healing would have improved your personality.”

They like Ann Taylor in Fae Land.

”I was hoping you’d wear that dress that clings to you like night itself.”

Final Thoughts:

Great story with twists and turns that will having you hooked till the end. Great read!
