“Shielded” tells the tale of Princess Jennesara, who sent off to marry her betrothed, the prince of neighboring Turia, in exchange for resources needed to save her Kingdom and when she is in route, a surprise ambushed alters the course of her life forever. Filled with betrayal, world-building, romance, fantasy, magic, and strong family ties (surprising to say the least), the reader is thrown in epic adventure that will have you turning pages faster than you had ever imagined.

And let’s just say that during the course of the read, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked this despite some flaws that typically turn me away *ahem*instant love*ahem* and minor weak heroine moments that had my eye twitching but rest assured, there is some decent character development and I am sure future installments will further empathize on that.

Nevertheless, “Shielded” helped guide me out of my funky reading slump so kudos to the author because you must be doing something right seeing how I would definitely consider this ideal choice for any reader looking to start 2020 in the right foot.

An excellent first book. It has many elements I want in a fantasy-strong female protagonist, evil magicians, a well designed world, scary places, treachery and intrigue, lots of action and a satisfying ending readying readers for the sequel. I'll definitely pre-order it as soon as I can. ( )

Shielded is about Jennesara, princess of Hálendi, who has magic which is only supposed to be inherited by the heir to the throne, her older brother. War is brewing on the border and Jenna sets off for the neighboring country of Turia. While crossing the wilds between the two countries, Things Happen, and Jenna ends up alone and undercover as a guard in the Turian capital, trying to uncover the truth and help her kingdom.

If you are looking for a pretty standard and easy YA fantasy, this is definitely it. The beginning is rather slow but after that it is engaging enough. The characters are likable, the villains are evil, the magic is unexplained. The book doesn’t really do anything unexpected so having read a lot of YA fantasy I could see what was coming well before the characters, which is a little frustrating but it was still a fun read. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the eARC in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Princess Jennesara is hiding her magic abilities from everyone but her brother. As the Heir to the throne he is supposed to be the only successor to the King. With a Battle against mages raging in the north. Jenna’s father, the king, sends her to Talaria, betrothed to the Prince there. All this in hopes that more troops may be negotiated to help in their battle. Along the journey to her new prince something happens that changes all her plans.

I appreciate books that have research in them. I love learning about a worlds history while the characters in it are also learning about their worlds past. I am hoping that the sequel has a little bit more of this aspect in it as they will be trying to decipher a location.

The battles in this book have been phenomenal. The use of language that really portrayed the difficulty of battle physically, and mentally weather it was physical fighting or with magic. I was able to follow these fighting scenes in my mind without having to re-read them for comprehension.

I am absolutely in love with the bond with chosen family that Jennesara has formed. I find it very relatable and inspiring. When you lose your family due to death or personal relationships it is motivating to know that family does not have to be blood. People can love you just as fiercely when you spend the time end effort to build a relationship of love.

I was extremely hooked on this book right from the start. There was never a moment when I felt the energy and suspense lacking. I love the world that has been build and the unique dimensions that this book has brought throughout the story. There are still some things that I feel are unresolved from this book, but I am sure that they will be addressed in the next book. This is keeping me in suspense, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in The Shielded Series. ( )
