Acies Addy finds herself in a world where she's not the only one with a dangerous secret When she discovers the truth Addy must take matters into her own hands The stakes Her chance at true love and the life she's meant to li Why do I not read historical fiction It seems like every time I read one I end up loving it yet it is not the genre that I usually seek out Although I ll be changing that next year I ve already joined the YA Historical Fiction Challenge to help spur that actionI have to admit that it was the cover that first drew me to this story and then when I read the summary I knew I had to read it When I first discovered it it was shortly before the release and I was surprised that I hadn t seen it mentioned beforehand such is the way with so many titles out there I supposeAnyway I guess I should actually talk about the book itself which was fantastic It was very easy to read It s a great historical fiction novel for people who maybe are thinking about picking up the genre but don t want the story to be over saturated with the historical aspectsAddy was a brilliant character I loved watching her personal growth through the entirety of this novel She s definitely a character that will grow on you You can t help but share in her frustrations to be than who she is or who she is expected to beThe story was predictable but that didn t make it any less enjoyable I loved the imagery and the writing in this novel One of my favorite aspects was the focus on the Falconry the parallelism of the falcons and Addy was superb This was just a fun story to readWildwing is a wonderful historical fiction with endearing characters a delightful story and a sweet love story

Thing she's always longed for the respect and admiration of others But then she meets Will the falconer's son with sky blue eyes who unsettles all her plans From shipwrecks to castle dungeons from betrothals to hidden conspir Stupid Goodreads ate my review and I can t be bothered to write it all again Suffice to say that I really enjoyed this book but couldn t uite give it 4 stars because some things let it down so I rated it 375 stars The main character is incredibly selfish and there was a serious and very annoying case of insta love which dragged my rating down but the plot was fast paced very original no tropes here and I found it difficult to put down it also had a really nice writing style with some beautiful descriptions
