Summary

From Iris Knox comes a debut novella full of grit, war, and determination.

In the Tribe of Dawn, one must always follow the rules: 

Never steal from a neighbor. 

Never curse the skygods out loud. 

Never lie to the High Court. 

Never wander into the East Woods alone. 

Never speak to an enemy clansman. 

Never approach the boundary. 

Never, ever cross the boundary.

The rules must always be followed.

The rules must always be followed.

Lilian Utopiv is wandering through the woods alone one afternoon when she sees a boy across the boundary. She knows the rules. She knows what will happen if she breaks them.

With secrets unravelling at every turn and an enemy tribe hungry for her blood, Lilian is pushed to her limits - physically, mentally, spiritually. Her enemies want her to be a coward. They want her to spill her secrets. They want her to turn on the Sungod she serves. 

But she can't. Or her tribe will pay with their lives.

Really enjoyed

This is my first audiobook arc and I thank you for the opportunity.

I struggled at first to get into the story but I have found that this happens with me and audiobooks that are ‘brand new’ to me. Once I got into the story I really enjoyed it and will be getting a physical copy as soon as funds allow.

The characters and story line had me hooked and I would love to read/listen to more set in this world.

Would recommend this to all my book loving friends

Brilliant book

I listened to this book via audiobook. I really enjoyed the story though at times I did find Lillian frustrating and far too stubborn but but the end and with the twist I actually understood her much much better and why she was like that.
I found the way it ended to abrupt and now I need to read the second book wanting to find out what happens.

I enjoyed the way the story flowed and enjoyed getting to know each of the characters. Overall I am giving the book a 5 star rating just purely for the fact it has left me wanting to read more.

Incredible fantasy filled with twists!

I absolutely adored this story, the world building is rich and detailed, but not so dense that it feels overwhelming. The Red Riding Hood inspiration is obvious but instead of being a straight retelling, Knox has created a twisty, shocking and fresh version of the fairy tale that had me gripped to the very end. I'm so excited for the next book!!

Powerful...

Intriguing storyline and cant wait to see how the situation turns for the lead characters and the little boy. Im certain an enemies to lovers romance is afoot too. There is hope to settle the need to fight in the lavender fields.

Why. Was. It. Not. Longer.

Why. Was. This. Book. Not. Longer. Those words accurately sum up thoughts on this book because I loved every single minute and I wanted more. This story was so original and unique. I think the author did a beautiful job at taking aspects of fantasy novels + ideas from Little Red Riding Hood as well as Romeo and Juliet to create this story. I loved the main characters and even though they did irritate me at times I did love watching them grow and I cannot wait to see them continue to grow in the rest of the series. I enjoyed how this book wasn't an enemies to lovers romance but instead focused on the familial aspects and what it means to do whatever you can to save your kin. However I am hoping that we get to see a romantic relationship develop between Lilian and Wyran. The author does a really good job with the plot twist as well and even though I had an inkling of what was going to happen I wasn't 100% sure which kept the suspense and intrigue alive. My only complaint was I wanted it to be longer so the characters have the time to develop an adequate relationship because that aspect did feel rushed. Overall I highly recommend and I cannot wait for the next book in the series.

Great Dark Fantasy

This was my first experience with Iris Knox's work, and I enjoyed it. The story was fascinating and once I started the audiobook, I had to listen until the end. Although there were some details about the setting, there was a lot implied by the descriptions, which I like as that left room for my imagination to work. The characters were complex and compelling. The plot was fast-paced and action-packed. Cassondra Ladd's narration was great and kept my attention. I was given a free copy of the audiobook, and I have voluntarily posted this review.

Wow!!

Loved the reading by Cassondra Ladd - I think she chose the perfect accents and pitch for each of the people represented. The story is original and has a twist I did not see coming - which I adored! I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
I gratefully received an ARC; this is my honest review.

3.5 star listen

3.5 stars
Great first instalment. I had a feeling about the “twist” and I was right.

I didn’t really understand the “romance” aspect to the novella. I didn’t by the enemies to lovers aspect but this may be because it’s just starting?

I enjoyed this audio enough I want to listen to the next one when it comes out.

Gifted audio in exchange for an honest review
