    Loved this book!!!!!!

    This book was so great. I loved the history of the world given so you knew what was going on. The characters had great backstories. I was hooked almost immediately.

    Love this book!

    I loved this book!!!! There is a war between 2 countries, 2 enemies (Prince Galian and Capt. Theo) crash land on the same deserted island. Capt. Theo is severely injured and to her surprise, Prince Galian works to save her instead of killing her. While stuck on the island, with each other's country presuming them dead, they come to rely on each other for survival!!! (and along the way, they fall in love!!) Of course there is so much more to this book than that. The world building, the politics, a very controlling king, the secrets.... I'm not a big fan of typical romances and while there is some romance in this book, as I said, there is so much more to it! I can't wait for the next 2 books in this trilogy!!!

    Adventure romance ftw

    It's a fast-paced adventure-romance with fantastic characters, Theo and Galian. They're star-crossed lovers whose story is anything but a cliché, and I can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy when it comes out. The story is told from alternating points of view, both his and hers. The world Evans creates in this novel is her most detailed and compelling yet, and you won't believe the ending!

    This is amazing

    Let’s start by saying that this book was amazing. I gave it a 4/5 stars. I read the entire book in practically four sittings. It is only a 260 page paperback but lately I haven’t read that much. After reading this amazing book all I want to do is read now. S. Usher Evan’s writing style agreed with me. The Island had a dual point of view (pov) with Theo, a Raven captain and Galian, a Kylaen prince. I saw inside the minds of both Theo and Galian which was really cool because they were fighting and you could see their true thoughts. The world that they live in seems to be very complex. There’s Kylae, the country that’s big and powerful. There’s also Rave, an old colony of Kylae that declared independence 50 years ago. Since Rave declared independence they have been at constant war with Kylae. Galian and Theo are stuck on an island somewhere in The Madion Sea, the sea that separates all these countries. The politics surrounding the two countries is so interesting. You can see Kylae with it’s dictator like king (and dad) and then there is Rave who has only had two presidents in the 50 years it has been independent. If you can’t see some corruptness just in that you must be blind. I can’t wait for the next book where I will be able to explore this world even further and see how each country’s governing officials stay in power. Theo and Galian are OTP material. They are so cute together but the fact that they were alone on the island makes me think that they only loved each other because they had nothing else to love. Now I doubt that ends up being true because I’ve seen ad about the third book on Twitter… Anyways I ship it and I hope it works out. I loved hearing about how Theo grew up. She was an orphan who was conscripted at the age of 12 and somehow has not died in the seven years she’s been in the military. Hearing about Rave’s orphans is fascinating yet also very sad that anyone would have to live though that. Galian grew up as the son his father, the king hated. As acts of rebellion Gallian went out and became a playboy but once he became a doctor he realized what he wanted to do with his life. (I think that reading this book has kind of made me consider becoming a doctor in the future but I’m like “nope” because I’d fail.) My only problem with the book was that Galian saves Theo a bunch of times. Now there is nothing wrong with that except that it follows the “prince saves helpless girl” trope. He saves her from like four different type of dangers throughout the novel multiple times. The only time Theo really needs to save Galian she freaks out. I love this book so much that it may possibly be one of my favorites and that is the one thing I didn’t like.

    4 stars

    I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. Theo and Prince Galian are from countries that are at war with each other, and they are on the front lines, believing whole-heartedly that their country is in the right. That is, until Theo and Galian end up stranded on a island together, and all of their beliefs are put to the test. I have a really hard time connecting with most female main characters. I don’t know what it is, but it’s really hard for me to find a female lead that I like. I really liked Theo, though! She was tough and strong-willed and I loved her. I also loved everything about Galian. The romance was not overbearing at all, and it was balanced perfectly with some action and suspense. Watching their relationship develop was just wonderful, and I can’t wait to see where they go from here. The only slight negative I have about this book (if you can even call it that) is that I would love to learn even more about the world that Theo and Galian live in. I know the majority of this book took place on an island, so that limited the world-building quite a bit, but I would still like to know more about the history of their world and how these two countries ended up fighting one another. I am really looking forward to reading the next book to hopefully learn some more about their world. PS- I've already read the rest of this series, and trust me, you need to read it!
