Review for Feudlings in Sight by Wendy Knight - 5 out of 5!
Boys of war suck at romance.
Charity Delyle has lived in the shadow of her Prodigy cousin and his powerful Guard since the day she was born. And she doesn’t mind—really. Except that being in Hunter’s shadow means that he can’t see her. And she’d like that to change.
Hunter has one purpose in life: Protect the Prodigy, or die trying. That means a social life, school, and even Charity come last until the war is over. For the most part, he’s okay with that—he can lose everything if he has to…except his seer.
Starting at a new school should be much safer than living in a war-ravaged Carules headquarters. But this new school is different than the others. Friendships are forged and destinies are questioned, and Hunter’s decision could cost them all everything they’ve been hoping for.
MY REVIEW -
This is a prequel in the Fate on Fire series, but I do recommend reading the first full Feudings book before this one because I think it helped me appreciate and feel more for the characters that are featured in this book. In this book, we get to see Charity, Hunter, and Shane before the events in the first book, and the chapters are in Charity and Hunter's POV's, so we get to see more how they feel about each other and how they feel about being part of the Carules. The Carules are at war with the Edren, both of which are groups of sorcerers who had a falling out with each other in the past, and Shane is an important person in the Carules group, so he is sent to a new school to blend in with the normal people and remain safe, and Charity is his cousin and a seer, so she goes along as well, and Hunter is Shane's bodyguard. This is pretty short, but I loved getting to know more about Charity and Hunter, and it was nice to get some backstory on them both. There is a bit of magic use in this book, which I love, and we also get a little bit of battle, which I also loved. I don't really care too much about the time at the school because it is just girls fawning over Shane, which I don't enjoy, and Charity making friends, so I could take or leave it, but I loved anything having to do with Hunter and Charity together, so just for that I really enjoyed this book. So, go read the first book and if you like it, this will be a nice addition to the story, but if you do choose to read this first, I think it does give a nice lead in to the full length book, so enjoy!
