The Forests of Dru - Jeffe Kennedy

Once Princess Oria spun wicked daydreams from the legends of sorceresses kidnapped by the barbarian Destrye. Now, though she’s come willingly, she finds herself in a mirror of the old tales: the king’s foreign trophy of war, starved of magic, surrounded by snowy forest and hostile strangers. But this place has secrets, too—and Oria must learn them quickly if she is to survive.

Instead of the refuge he sought, King Lonen finds his homeland desperate and angry, simmering with distrust of his wife. With open challenge to his rule, he knows he and Oria—the warrior wounded and weak, the sorceress wrung dry of power—must somehow make a display of might. And despite the desire that threatens to undo them both, he still cannot so much as brush her skin.

With war looming and nowhere left to run, Lonen and Oria must use every intrigue and instinct they can devise: to plumb Dru’s mysteries, to protect their people—and to hold fast to each other. Because they know better than any what terrifying trial awaits… 

My thoughts:
I just hate the Destrye! Poor Oria. Fine, there are nice people there too, but so many are just asshats. All," she is a witch! She has bewitched him! Use her as a slave and marry one of your own kind! " Asshats! She is lying there half dead, but of course she is at fault. Grrrrrr!

I guess I should be happy cos she is with Lonen, but they are just so mean! She is weak because she needs her magic. He is weak cos of their journey there. And people do not want her around so that is not exactly making them stronger.

The book is not long, it's a novella. They get better, there is drama and they try to figure out how to make her better.

Conclusion:
But things are coming, I am intrigued by new events. Things will get dangerous too. I am looking forward to more.

  1. Oh now I'm curious. A novella length with all that going on? When an author can write well with a few pages, it is someone I want to read.

  7. I actually just started this book this morning. I'm only two chapters in. At the moment, I really don't like Lonen's brothers. Is this the last book? I was thinking that it was.
