SUMMARY The ueen of Ieflaria Tales of Inthya #1 107 è ❰KINDLE❯ ❂ The ueen of Ieflaria Tales of Inthya #1 Author Effie Calvin – Princess Esofi of Rhodia and Crown Prince Albion of Ieflaria have been betrothed since they were children but have never met At age seventeen Esofi's journey to IeflariM so Esofi is offered a new betrothal to Prince Albion's younger sister the new Crown Princess Adale But Adale has no plans of taking the throne leaving Esofi with to battle than fire breathing beast. The ueen of Ieflaria is the first book in the fantasy romance series Tales of Inthya The second book’s title hasn’t been announced yet but it will follow different charactersThe two PoV characters and their romance were my favorite aspect of the book If you’re looking for a slow paced sweet ff romance between princesses with a sideplot about magical creatures The ueen of Ieflaria is perfect for youI loved Adale She’s not your typical rebellious princess who wants to fight or run away because she’s in love with someone else She’s just not good at communicating with people not good at following her tutors’ lessons not good at understanding nuance in conversations – she doesn’t feel good enough to be ueen I really liked how this book showed that awkwardness isn't the only thing that matters seeing your subjects as human is important than etiuette Adale is flawed at the beginning and is flawed at the end and maybe will never be a perfect ueen but she isn’t aloneEsofi’s personality was in many ways the opposite of Adale’s Esofi has been brought up knowing she will not marry for love and she finds the idea of an arranged marriage almost comforting which is uncommon – arranged marriage is usually portrayed negatively in fiction Esofi knows how politics works; she’s born for this She is a great magician and good at many things Adale isn’t able to do but she doesn’t know how different Ieflaria is from her own landAdale and Esofi made a cute couple and complemented each other; after the miscommunication at the beginning I found them adorableI can’t say the same of the side characters who were often underdeveloped and one dimensional The magical creatures were far interesting this book features dragons and a unicornAfter the slow beginning the writing isn’t heavy but often it tells instead of showing and there were some infodumps the book grew on me The worldbuilding wasn’t as developed as I would have liked but the concept was great – not only same gender couples are common the world is also pan normative and trans inclusive Most supposedly ueer inclusive fantasy books seems to forget that trans people exist and while there were no major trans characters in The ueen of Ieflaria there is a non binary god and some non binary minor characters Also magical transition is possibleThe magic system isn’t explained in detail and the theme of the conflict between magic and science could have been developed – it would have taken Esofi’s arc further which would have been interesting – but I understand why the book was focused solely on the romantic plotlineTW fatphobia and fat shaming Esofi is fat; brief mention of suicidal ideation Adale at the beginning I received an ARC advanced reader copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Princess Esofi of of Ieflaria eBook #8608 Rhodia and Crown Prince Albion of Ieflaria have been betrothed since they were children but have never met At age seventeen Esofi's journey to Ieflaria is no. 350 Stars A good YA fantasy read I just love lesfic fantasy books and when you throw in dragon’s it just makes it all the better However this was not a perfect book for me The premise was great but this had a few misses when it came to execution But overall I enjoyed the read and will read book 2 in this series Princess Esofi I pronounced it Sophie but am not sure if that is right has been engaged to the Prince of Ieflaria since she was a child Now that she is 18 it is time to officially sign the marriage pact and live in Ieflaria But during the four months journey to Ieflaria she learns the news the prince has died Esofi knows she cannot return home so she must marry the second in line which happens to be the Princess Adale Adale has never wanted to rule The plans have always been for her brother to sit on the thrown not her But with pressure from her parents and increased dragon attacks Adale must decide between marrying Esofi or giving up the crown and running away As I mentioned above I really liked the premise but there were times it didn’t totally come together for me There were a few times when there was too much info dumping; especially when it came to all the Gods and Goddesses It was a lot of info to take in I wish Calvin would have slowed down her approach I did feel like I got everything suared away by the end but it took a while There were also subjects that were touched on but not really developed The science versus magic debate and the sort of secret sect of one of the Goddesses that Esofi belonged to Calvin teased these issues but nothing came of it I don’t know if it was due to this being a series or if she just abandoned the ideas When it came to the characters I really liked Esofi She was a real badass and some of the scenes with her battling the dragons were my favorite I’m going to jump back to what I was saying about undeveloped ideas Esofi brought a bunch of battlemages with her to fight the dragons I was really looking forward to some big dragon magic battles but again nothing happened with that There was plenty with Esofi and Dragons but the army of battlemages was useless Back to the characters I did like the other main Adale but something about her was missing for me Esofi was so strong that she kind of eclipsed Adale in this storyThe romance is very PG but it was sweet I did enjoy the scenes with them together I do have to complain about the ending though Esofi and Adale really needed to talk and work things out but it was sort of just passed over for a future scene with one of Adale’s super annoying friends I wanted of the couple working things out not an annoying secondary character I was hoping was banned for good Speaking of that annoying character that is something I hope Calvin will work on Her secondary characters need to be fleshed out they were all really wooden One thing I did really like sexuality and gender was not an issue at all Too many lesfic fantasy books the couples have issues due to their sex or who they love It was nice to see for a change that it didn’t matter one bit I would recommend this book to fantasy fans It does have some bumps but overall it was a good read I will not hesitate to read book 2 and I’m hopeful maybe a few of my current issues will be addressed in that book An ARC was given to me by NineStar Press for a honest review

REVIEW The ueen of Ieflaria Tales of Inthya #1

The ueen of Ieflaria Tales of Inthya #1T for the wedding she always expected but instead to offer condolences on the death of her would be husbandBut Ieflaria is desperately in need of help from Rhodia for their dragon The ueen Epubproble. Read on my blog I received a copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewRelease date February 19th 2018 by Nine Star PressI remember seeing this wonderful cover on Twitter and hearing that the book would be about ueer princesses and I immediately fell in love And let me tell you when I finally got to read it The ueen of Ieflaria turned out to be everything I hoped for and To say that The ueen of Ieflaria has ueer princesses is technically true but it's a huge understatement In fact The ueen of Ieflaria has a main cast made of several uniue funny supportive and fleshed out characters most of whom are female I'm not exaggerating when I say that I was in love with not only both Esofi and Adale but every single one of their ladies in waiting all of whom had their own uniue personalities and beautiful moments Lisette is definitely my favourite though hands downThe only reason why I didn't devour this book in one sitting is that I started reading it too late and had to go to sleep at 1am and finish the next morning I adored the writing style the characters the plot This book has princesses fighting in duels in dresses princesses fighting dragons talking magical creatures good dragons baby dragons princesses kissing princesses in love I'm sorry why are you still here reading this review when you could be pre ordering The ueen of IeflariaI loved how different Esofi and Adale were and yet they worked together well and both helped each other grow or see things from the other's point of view I especially enjoyed their different views on science and religion and how they changed and yet still stayed true to themselves during the bookNote While this first book unfortunately didn't have any major trans characters it did have minor nonbinary characters referred to as neutroi and even a nonbinary god and referenced a canon magical way to transition so I hope this will change in the future installmentsThis is my new favourite book and it might be yours tooMy rating ★★★★★
