Check out my review for MADLY by M. Leighton. This was a great read, and best of all, it’s FREE!
Madly is your average nearly-eighteen year old girl—for a princess, that is.
Madly James is thoroughly enjoying her internship in the small town of Slumber when the unthinkable happens—there’s a prison break in Atlas, the magically-protected home of Madly’s race. A traitor has set free eight Lore, the spirits of what humans know as fairy tales, and they are making their way to Slumber to awaken their descendants.
In order to save her home, the lives of her family, and all of humanity, Madly must learn to wield her exceptional powers and recapture the Lore before it’s too late and all is lost. But Madly’s only help are her two best friends and the Sentinel, Jackson Hamilton, that threatens both her heart and her destiny. Madly has loved Jackson as long as she can remember, but he is the one thing even a princess can’t have.
Can she resist love to become the queen she was fated to be? Or can she find a way to have both?
This novelette introduces you to Madly and prepares you for the quest of a lifetime.
It feels strange to say this because I’m a big M. Leighton fan, but I was really surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this book!
I have had this one on my Kindle for over a year now, but with the author revisiting this series, I decided to finally have a quick look at what it was all about. And I devoured it!
MADLY (#1) is the perfect introduction to a new series. It’s short – it only took me around an hour to read – and it’s completely free! So even if you decide to give it a go, and realise that it’s not for you, you would have only spent an hour of your time and absolutely NO money!
But I personally thought that this was a great lead up to a story that I definitely want to know more about.
And I’m pretty sure that I’m going to be adding a new book boyfriend to my ever-growing collection, because hello, Jackson!
In this first book, we are introduced to a great bunch of characters and a storyline that continue on throughout the whole series, as Madly fights to free her family, and save her race from the escaped prisoners, set on destroying it.
A great start to a potentially fantastic YA Fantasy series by one of my favourite authors.
So give it a go. What have you got to lose?
MADLY & THE SEA WITCH (#4)
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, M. Leighton, is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you’ll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren’t roaming in that direction, she’ll be riding wild horses, skiing the slopes of Aspen or scuba diving with a hot rock star, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.
