Seventeen-year-old Adria Catarr is a carefree, stubborn girl with an insatiable sweet tooth. When she stumbles into Lando Cardé, the incognito prince, during the annual Midsummer Festival and mistakes his charm for love at first sight, her naïve heart is quickly broken.
Kaidan Sordell, a childhood friend, is there to pick up the pieces and help Adria mend her wounds. His affection for her has gone unnoticed for so long that he’s not sure if he’ll ever have the nerve to tell her how he truly feels.
With the last summer before adulthood upon them, Adria and Kaidan decide to seek out the Temple of the Red Mare. The legendary tales of it revealing a heart’s truest desire is too tempting for lovelorn Adria to pass up.
Will she realize, though, that what she’s looking for has been trekking beside her all along?
Review by Nichole
This story was about a young girl Adria 17 years old with a major sweet tooth looking for love. During her afternoon midsummer festival she meets Prince Lando who wasn't to forthcoming of his status. While her life long friend Kaidan watches what unfolds in front of him. When Adria wakes and Lando isn't there she decides that she wants to take the long journey with her friend Kaidan who has been pining for her but isn't able to express it. During this journey of becoming adults will they find their one true love?
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I must say that it was well written. In the beginning I was bored but I pushed through and once I got to a certain point I couldn't put it down.. So glad I did it ended up better than I would have thought.
To see what happens to Adria Catarr, Kaidan Sordell, and Prince Lando you must read.
