    I wasn t sure about reading this one at first, I admit the blurb scared me, but I was very curious and intrigued at the same time I finally succumbed and WOW.After reading it, I wondered why I waited for so long This book is intense, full of angst and heartache, I LOVED IT I actually read it a few months back, but it is still ingrained in my memory.The Concubine is written in the present tense as it is in the form of personal journals I loved this approach and felt like I was going through t I wasn t sure about reading this one at first, I admit the blurb scared me, but I was very curious and intrigued at the same time I finally succumbed and WOW.After reading it, I wondered why I waited for so long This book is intense, full of angst and heartache, I LOVED IT I actually read it a few months back, but it is still ingrained in my memory.The Concubine is written in the present tense as it is in the form of personal journals I loved this approach and felt like I was going through this timeless, emotional journey right alongside of Lealin Lea s words managed to reach out to me as a reader, feeling her every emotion, be it pain, fear, happiness, desire or hope.Even though we of course are not privy to Marik s thoughts, I was able to see him and feel his passion for Lea through her eyes The author managed to make me fell in love with him He pissed me off at times, broke my heart at others then made my heart whole again A flawed man, a just king and a passionate lover There are a few scenes at the end that cemented his status as one of my all time favorite fictional heroes.For such a short novella, it covers a lot of time span and the author manages to give a powerful love story without me ending up feeling shortchanged.Do I regret reading it Obviously notDo I regret waiting so long to read it YES.Do I recommend ABSOLUTELY

Oh wow The story is told through Lealin s thoughts, she is the king s favourite concubine written in a kinda narrative poem style and I m digging it Brings out the poet in me lol It is a refreshing change.I didn t expect I would easily like Lealin muchfeeling her pain Will it always be this way This unstoppable cycle of 4.5 Stars In her shadowed affections, bound as she is to him, her heart burns every time she must share him with the many women in his life.

    This was a quick, angst filled read I enjoyed it, but it was in serious need of some editing The number of grammatical errors was astounding, although my version is quite old and newer versions may have been editedthoroughly.My heart went out to Lea Shunned by the King she loved, only to become the object of obsession for the cruel man that would overthrow him, she went from one sad existence to the next In the end, she gets a HEA, but I can t help but think that it came at an unreason This was a quick, angst filled read I enjoyed it, but it was in serious need of some editing The number of grammatical errors was astounding, although my version is quite old and newer versions may have been editedthoroughly.My heart went out to Lea Shunned by the King she loved, only to become the object of obsession for the cruel man that would overthrow him, she went from one sad existence to the next In the end, she gets a HEA, but I can t help but think that it came at an unreasonable price for her.Due to the short length of this book, I felt like the story was rushed and I wantedcharacter development I feel like this story could have easily been an epic novel withdetails and development As it stands, it was okay but lacked the depth and captivating intangibles that make a story great

    PHENOMENAL I must add my two cents I know there are plenty of book snobs out there that will only read a third person narrative but this book was excellent The story is told from Lealin s perspective, the concubine of King Marik The writing style was different, easy to follow and the writingoh my word I need a tissue Ms Phal has a way with her words and in this piece its almost poetic In this pregnant silence, with nothing in the air but the echoes of our spent passion fusing with the PHENOMENAL I must add my two cents I know there are plenty of book snobs out there that will only read a third person narrative but this book was excellent The story is told from Lealin s perspective, the concubine of King Marik The writing style was different, easy to follow and the writingoh my word I need a tissue Ms Phal has a way with her words and in this piece its almost poetic In this pregnant silence, with nothing in the air but the echoes of our spent passion fusing with the sweet scent of summer night, I feel foolish for loving you The absurdity of it is a blow right between to my battered heart A concubine in love with her king

    I really enjoyed this story, surprising since it was written in present tense, which I would normally avoid The sample pulled me in and for the next couple of hours I was riveted, loathed to move as I turned the electronic pages to see what would happen next And boy, does a lot happen in this novella It takes place over a period ofthan five years and is filled with lies, betrayal, and murder Although this is a romance, it s not your typical romance The story takes place during an unkn I really enjoyed this story, surprising since it was written in present tense, which I would normally avoid The sample pulled me in and for the next couple of hours I was riveted, loathed to move as I turned the electronic pages to see what would happen next And boy, does a lot happen in this novella It takes place over a period ofthan five years and is filled with lies, betrayal, and murder Although this is a romance, it s not your typical romance The story takes place during an unknown time in history where people still use cannons, swords, and arrows to fight battles With their formal speech and robe wearing, it reminds me of the Middle Ages The setting is in the fictional country of Noria The story was told in what felt like journal entries, written by the favorite slave concubine of the ruling king, Marik Her name was Lealin Although race is not mentioned, the hero and heroine were clearly of different races She was dark, her skin color described as earth toned, while the hero was described as blond, with grey eyes and white skin I enjoyed all the characters, and even felt a bit of pity for the villain Yeah, I know, crazy, right He loved Lealin so much I enjoyed Kivar, the king s grumpy advisor who was also good with medicinal potions He came to the rescue at the end during a particularly heart breaking scene Somia, the king s second wife, who turned out to be a friend and ally to Lealin This was truly great storytelling, marred only by the lack of editing Half of the sentences didn t begin with a capital letter and the author didn t properly punctuate the lines of dialogue There were also miscellaneous typos throughout I hate to end on a negative note I enjoyed the story, and in some instances, the way the author chose to put words together was almost like reading poetry But I would have enjoyed The Concubine evenwithout the numerous editing issues It was really good stuff

    4.5 What a pleasant surprise this was Despite being a short novella, it really packed on the intensity and emotions The book does have lots of editing errors which is a shame But despite that I couldn t put it down, really enjoyed it and absolutely loved the story Thanks Ash for the rec Mwah
