    1. April 27 Currently $2.51 on . Solid Adult Female Fantasy (It is totally a thing) amazon/gp/product/B00G3.5 StarsThis is an adult romance with a few high fantasy points thrown in. Andromeda or Andi for short is the middle daughter and a princess of the twelve kingdoms. She has spent the majority of her life being invisible. Her older sister Ursula is being groomed to rule and the youngest sister Amelia is as sweet as she is beautiful. Andi has lived her life avoiding court, politics and strategy, [...]



    2. I only finished this book because I wanted to find out how the romance between the star-crossed lovers evolved. Throughout the whole, I spent much of it skimming. In the end, I could not like this book. The writing, the plotting, and the pacing all fell short of my expectations. It starts off a bit awkwardly - with the three beautiful princesses, each more beautiful than the last. I would expect this kind of element in a story based on the fairy/folktale traditions, but given that this one wasn' [...]


    3. Romantic shifter fantasy princess story. I found the characters and the romance quite engaging but the world-building left me a bit cold. I've bought the second one in the series, and the third features a warrior woman (one of my favorite tropes), but I'm talking a breather with something more developed in the interim.



    4. 3 1/2I now see why all those mixed reviews out there. All those three stars, but not really glowing words. The Mark of the Tala is an intriguing fantasy tale that nonetheless fails to engage completely the reader. Or at least this reader.I liked it, mind it, but I was at the same time off - put by the YA feel, the woe is me, the cliché bits of the story. (Read more or less in The Winter King.) I am not a fan of YA, but I find New Adult way worse. And this is NA, aka teen with sex in it. This mi [...]


    5. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: A high fantasy with engaging characters, a destiny that doesn’t seem as dark as first believed and a steamy but complicated romance.Opening Sentence: My version of the story goes all the way back to the once upon a time with the three princesses, each more beautiful than the last.The Review:The Mark of the Tala is a high fantasy novel that masquerades as a romance. My assumption that this was just a straight up romance was wrong. There is [...]


    6. A high fantasy fairy tale with princesses, princes and a corrupt king is augmented with shifters and magic. What's not to love about this story? Ms. Kennedy wows me with her latest series. Our story begins with three princesses, each more beautiful than the previous. These three sisters are loving and are adversarial in only a friendly sisterly manner. Andromeda aka Andi enjoys her isolated bubble as the middle child. She is neither the prettiest nor the strongest. She is the proverbial middle c [...]


    7. The Mark of Tala was a great introduction into this intriguing trilogy!Born of three sisters, the Andromeda or “Andi” is used to being the invisible one, the wildflower, over the seemly over looked sister. She is intuitive, doesn’t care for court life, and enjoys escaping to the outdoors to the countryside and wildlife.But when one of those escapes leads to an encounter with the mysterious Rayfe, the King of Tala, soon the aloof Andi finds herself embarking on some revealing secrets and re [...]


    8. This was a quirky dark fantasy, and I found it quite enjoyable. Thank you, Grace Draven, for the recommend!Andi is stuck in a sort of a limbo. A middle sister, a princess good for forging an alliance through a marriage between two kingdoms, she is neither a fierce warrior and a strong ruler like her older sister, Ursula, nor stunningly beautiful and gentle like her younger sibling, Amelia. Instead she walks unnoticed through the halls of the castle and spends most of her time away, riding her ho [...]


    9. I really enjoyed this book! Although the pacing was a bit wack- a-doodle for my liking. I loved how the novel started, it was interesting and fun to discover the Tala along with the main character. However once the mystery was dissipated, the writing lost some of its steam and some of the important parts( in my opinion) were glossed over.However despite my qualms I still liked this book. It was a great read, I just feel like it could have benefited from being more fleshed out. Another issue.ough [...]



    10. Love the writing style but this was super depressing and heroine's sister is also a heroine apparently. She had no loyalty. She gave up her sister at every opportunity.


    11. [ARC received through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.]I enjoyed some parts of this novel, while others left me cold, so in the end, I rounded it up to 3 stars: I didn't like the first half much, but found the second one better. (I guess this is one of those books I might have given up on in the beginning if I hadn't requested it (with the implicit promise of a review); fortunately, after a while, it finally worked for me.)Andromeda didn't strike me as remarkable, indeed, though not [...]


    12. 4.5 starsAlso posted there:The Mark of the Tala is the first book of The Twelve Kingdoms series, a series that featured 3 motherless daughters which their true destiny and nature will be unraveled after they learn about their mother secret and war coming in their door. This book is about Princess Andromeda, or Andi. She's the middle princess, shy, ignorant of politic and any kingdom's matters, and doesn't mind being invicible. She knows that she's not as strong and determined like her big sister [...]


    13. The story of an ordinary middle sister that turns out to be anything but ordinary.Andi has always been the odd princess out, with her older sister being the strong warrior ruler and her younger sister the incredibly kind and beautiful beloved of all. Andi was fine sticking to the shadows but her life left her restless somehow. That restlessness led her to the path of Rayfe, a strangely compelling man who completely changed her quiet life.A long suppressed secret comes to light and brings everyth [...]


    14. This book hit so many things just right for me! I loved the writing, the way mysteries unfolded, and I kept finding myself rereading parts because it was hard for me to let them go. It's a once-upon-a-time fantasy about three sisters, who despite being so different from each other never waver in their love and willingness to sacrifice for one another. This story is about Andi, the middle child, who is invisible and quiet, always overshadowed by her sisters. Ursula, the eldest, is an exceptionall [...]


    15. 5 starsI am considering putting this book at my favorites shelve.Yeah it was that good. Let me start by saying that I don't particularly like stories with shapeshifters, this one I loved.Why you ask? Because it didn't focus only on that and because it took timetill it built to our heroine, Andi, learning what was the man that wanted her.Andi is a really relatable character and I liked the fact that I saw her grow as the book advanced. From a girl without courage to stand up for herself and with [...]


    16. 2.5 stars. The preview of this book intrigued me with its similarities to A Kingdom of Dreams so I ended up getting the whole thing. After all, I'm a sucker for those terrible warlord enemies-turned-lovers and arranged marriages between two feuding kingdoms plotlines.Unfortunately, it ended up being dull as a doorknob with zero chemistry between our characters. We talk a lot about war and siegesbut apart from a few battle attempts it was a lot of talk. I essentially DNFed this at the halfway ma [...]


    17. Fabulous, well-developed fantasy fairy tale re-imagining with conflicted, bold princesses and flawed, honorable princes. Can't wait to see what the next books in the series bring.


    18. I'm not really sure why I waited so long to read/listen to this book. However, I'm so happy there are multiple books after Andi's book in the series. I absolutely fell in love with the characters in this book and can't wait to see what happens next in the series. While I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to read the series, I'm pretty happy that I have so many books to read back to back.


    19. 3.5I was very impressed by the world that's created here but it's the characters that stole the show for me. Andi seems to live in a state of ennui. With the exception of her sisters and her horse she holds herself apart from politics and court life. You can get the gist of the story from the blurb, but what I loved is the self-discovery of Andi. She learns what's worth fighting for and doing what's right vs. doing what she's told. Going off the cover I assumed this was a young adult novel. I de [...]


    20. A quarter of the story I really thought it was a Young Adult Fantasy novel by the writing style until I realize it was a Fantasy Adult Romance novel. I am not sure whether it was significant to me knowing it but I think the book reminded me too much like Kristen Ashley's Fantasyland series which further reduce my initial acceptance of the book because it is a fantasy novel with an emphasis on romance between characters that are too sparsely crafted to be enjoyable.Princess Andromeda aka Andi was [...]


    21. Andi never felt like she fit in. She is not as beautiful and kind as her younger sister Amelia, nor as cunning and intelligent as her older sister and heir to the throne, Ursula. She takes refuge in riding her horse far and wide to escape the stares at court and hide from the pity she sees in their eyes. Then everything changes the day she meets a dark stranger in a far away meadow. With one kiss Rayfe unravels Andi's life, exposing all that she holds kind and true to be a lie. Right from the be [...]


    22. I haven't been doing much reading just for fun, most for review but an excerpt I saw for this book intrigued me and I found myself engrossed fairly quickly.Andromeda is the middle of the high king's daughters, the one nobody notices. Her favorite past time is to take her mare Fiona on long rides. One afternoon her ride is interrupted by a man with a pack of hounds. Fiona turns skittish and dumps Andromeda, leaving her vulnerable to the stranger. The man seems utterly delighted to encounter her a [...]



    23. I've read some other stories by Jeffe Kennedy, and while I liked them as well, this is by far my favorite. She has a knack for storytelling, and I enjoyed everything about this book. I don't read a lot of what I would consider epic/high fantasy books, and I'm not sure why because I thoroughly enjoy them. (I've been trying to figure out the difference between the epic/high labels but have only been getting conflicting answers to this question, so I've given up; however, IMO I would consider this [...]


    24. I should have written this review at once, but sometimes it's just so hard to write a review, you all know it. Been there, done that.So, oh I hate when I am at a loss for words. Think now, think!Right, we have Andi. The invisible princess who has pretty been blind too. She has been living her happy life, invisible to others, and happy on her own. Her family is a happy one and all is good. Or is it? Has she been blind to what truly is going on? What her father really is? Is he a good king or not? [...]


    25. A richly told story with fable qualities, this story more or less immediately draws you in by superimposing the qualities of Andi's older and younger sisters with her seeming charmless nature.I can't tell you at what point I stopped realizing I was reading and became involved with the story, but once I was, I kept reading until I finished at about 2:30 in the morning. It's the characters who will draw you back to it, if you can put it down. The settings are largely just enough that you have an i [...]


    26. 3.5 starsMiddle Child Loses Her Jan Brady-complexReview to come year later. The oldest sister is the warrior and the youngest incomparable beauty. Then, there is Princess Andromeda, the middle child. People will not meet her eyes and she feels invisible. Only in the company of horses does Andi feel comfortable. As she rides her horse farther than her father has allowed her she's confronted by a man who sees what no one else does. He'll lead her into another kingdom. She has a destiny to fulfill, [...]
