Review - Life's Breath by Nancy Wald

Title: Life’s Breath
Author: Nancy Wald
Publisher: Lyrical Press
Buy Link: Life's Breath
Rating: You Need to Read

Reviewed By: Janelle

Fifteen years ago, sorceress Arlana created something evil. It now threatens to destroy the kingdom she calls home. To defeat it, she must fulfill her destiny. Not only does the future of the realm hang in the balance, so does the life of her beloved Prince Garrett. Magic, treachery and loyalty gives Prince Garrett reason to doubt, to resist...and love Arlana. When she asks him to set honor aside and tie his blood with hers, can he sort through the scars left on his heart and accept the obstinate sorceress? Is love enough to save a kingdom in crisis?

While not as gripping as the blurb suggests, I truly enjoyed this story. The characters are believable, the plot was smooth, and it was liberally sprinkled with humor. And while the sex was nothing earth shattering, it warmed nicely.

Perhaps my favorite element of this book is the dynamic between Garrett and Arlana. As so often happens between men and women, they often argue while saying the exact same thing. A great many of their issues stem from the well defined and confining roles they play based on their gender and social standing. This leaves them to fight not only for the kingdom they both love, but with themselves, as they decide the best course when their own needs and wants must be put on the back burner.
