The girl with the strange blue eyes had to disguise herself as a boy. It was the only way she could have called the battlefield a home for so long now, that she could barely remember the life she had prior. The clashing of the swords mirroring the clashing of her feelings – should she trust this General or not? Can she put her trust in them, in men, when they are responsible for all the horrors she has witnessed for half of her life? Love appears in someone’s life from strange places and takes them to even stranger ones. A tale of growing up, friendship and romance. This novel has a historical setting, in old Korea, when the great Silla people managed to unify the lands of the Three Kingdoms. It is a slice of life story seasoned with some spice on the side. The 18+ rating is due to some explicit scenes, but from cover to cover the story wants to give the reader the opportunity to get to know and grow closer to the characters as they grow up and mature.
This is the first part of a 3 novel series.
phoenixhyperion: Oh man, I just love your world background. The details are complete and down to specific details that it opens my eyes to see the world back in the war days. Dude, I hate history, but your book just introduces it so nicely that I think history is not as awful as I thought. You induce me to read more. And that’s a good job right there author! Keep up the good work.
Sandra_Cats: This novel is right up my alley – I am a fanatic for history romances and thou the beginning does not seem to be true to this tag you can sense a romance growing. The characters of this story are so lovable – because you get to see them grow and their interactions are believable. I found some shocking moments that left me feeling a bit tense because the subject was a little girl but I see how those events are meant to shape her character – don’t worry it’s nothing unfitting for the tags. The story shifts mid way and it left me curious as to where it may lead. I truly liked this one!
