Serena Chase’s The Remedy

About

PURPOSED by birth. DESTINED by prophecy. REVEALED by Truth.
Now, her time has come.

Having come to terms with her long-hidden identity, Princess Rynnaia E’veri is ready to take her rightful place. But before she can join her father at Castle Rynwyk, she must endeavor to fulfill a 200-year-old prophecy and defeat the Kingdom’s ancient enemy, the Cobelds. Joined by her faithful knight, Sir Julien de Gladiel, and a gifted group of friends, Rynnaia must trek a dangerous path through canyons, forests, and into the very depths of a mountain where, if the prophetic scrolls prove correct, she will face an unknown foe, alone. Treacheries will be discovered, sacrifices will be made, friends will be lost, and love will be tested, but if even one line of the riddled prophecy is misinterpreted, Rynnaia will fail . . . and the Kingdom will fall.

Beginning at the point THE RYN ended, THE REMEDY concludes an epic re-imagining of the classic Grimm fairy tale, SNOW WHITE & ROSE RED, but the Eyes of E’veria series is only beginning . . .

Review

The Remedy picks up right where The Ryn left off and you will feel as though you never put the first book down. Initially, this novel begins a bit more laidback. Rynnaia gets to know her father more, details are hashed out concerning the Remedy (and Julien!), and some former characters are reintroduced. But then, the fun begins as Rynnaia and her group begin their journey to find the Remedy. I found this sweeping novel to follow that epic-like feel that only the best fantasy novels have. I loved how E’veria has a history that is diverse and layered. I really liked how the group had to follow the clues of an old prophecy to find the Remedy. Each time one was found I was mentally checking it off of my list. I especially liked the character development of Rynnaia. I liked that she wasn’t perfect and that she had moments of frustration. I loved the way Julien courted her in spite of the fact that he knew she loved him already. I even liked it when there was tension between them just so I could see their relationship grow. The only thing that made me question the novel was why her and why now? I wasn’t sure that it answered that question. Spiritually, though this is not a blatant Christian novel, I believe it holds a lot of similarities to knowing God and trusting Him, and seeking His face (and expecting an answer) when trials come up. Loads of fun, you’re in for a treat with this one and I am very excited to read the next one (please have Cazien!). 

** I received this novel from the author. My opinion was not affected in anyway.**
