I volunteered to read this book through netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This book is well written and the characters are described well. This is a interesting book. I liked the main character. It is about a 3 star book in my opinion. I would recommend reading this book to anyone and everyone. This ebook in stores now for $2.99 (USD).

I enjoyed this book and the unique storyline it portrayed. I’m glad I came across it and am curious how the story continues in the next book.

Book #1 in a two part series.  Set in a well defined kingdom that is facing a change in leaders with all of the problems that accompany such a change, Lisa James has built a fantasy world that captured my attention and held it throughout the book.  The characters face choices and their consequences with a strength of purpose and responsibility not often seen in young people these days.  To save his neighbors, a young man pleads guilty and is sentenced to serve the new leader as a slave.  But he carries a secret, he can see the future, sometimes.  Thus Premonition.  The new leader not only faces the usual challenges, she must make her decisions and base her actions keeping in mind that the leader she is replacing is her father....complicating every move she must make.

The two main characters must learn to trust each other or their future will not be a good one.  

This was a good book with a good story line and great characters.  While the story line may not be unique, the writing is excellent and the story is told skillfully to keep the reader's interest.  It is definitely worth your reading time.

This was quite a fun book! I just need to get my hands on the second book because this one ends leaving the reader with questions!

I loved the characters in the story. Isaac and Kiatra have a wonderful story, and I loved watching their relationship grow. The arcs in their story lines was great. I felt that they had believable personalities, and I enjoyed both of them!

Overall, this was a fun story that I look forward to reading more of!

I was provided a gifted copy of this book for free. I am leaving my review voluntarily.

This is what I can only describe as historical fantasy. Isaac is not the usual alpha hero but a gentle, loyal young man determined to help those he can. It's easy to cheer for him and my heart frequently hurt for him as he learned to fit into this new life that he finds himself dealing with.
Kiatra is next in line to rule her people but in many ways she's held back by her grief at losing her mother. I thought it poignant that the couple defined their growing attraction within the confines of the master/slave dynamics and both held back which meant trust became a living breathing obstacle between them. This is apparently part of a duology with an ending that leaves Isaac in a quandary and I very much look forward to reading the sequel.
This voluntary take is of a copy I requested from Netgalley and my thoughts and comments are honest and I believe fair

would like to thank netgalley and the publisher for letting me read this brilliant book

a glimpse into the future, a curse or a blessing...

a curse that is what isaac was told....his father made him hide it from all 

but as things turn bleak for the village and they try to steal food and grain for their families a forfeit is offered in return for their lives one man should be given up...

isaac volunteers and though no man puts forth a cry for outrage, the offer is accepted..

what a brilliant book...i was hooked from the first page and the story didnt disappoint at all...in fact i cant wait for the next book in the series...going to be keeping an eye out for more of this authors works

This book was received as an ARC from Lisa James in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

I have read some unlikely love stories and stories of struggle and redemption but this one was too much out of the box for me. I loved the fantasy concept at first but there were parts of the book where it got confusing among the interactions with each of the characters and the purpose of the adventure. It was hard to identify the plot was this an adventure? Was this a fight to the death? Love Story? Conquering an obstacle? The book went all over the place in which it did make it hard to read and comprehend. The book is definitely different than any fantasy/adventure book currently on the market and I know there are a lot of readers that enjoy those book so there is definitely an audience for this book.

This is why we give this book 3.5 stars.

This was a quick. light read and a great start to a two part series. I find the characters likeable and I love a book with a strong female protagonist of color. Isaac and Kiatra both deal with their personal struggles and this book doesn't end with everything resolved. I'll be interested to see how the second book turns out.

Of course this book ended in a cliffhanger, but I was happy to know the sequel is coming out later this year. It was an interesting premise with some reversed gender roles then typical which I appreciated. I loved the lead female protagonist and the male protagonist is sweet. I am looking forward to seeing how they evolve in book 2. This author is pretty new but I think she did a good job coming up with a fresh story.

I received a copy of this book to review from Netgalley. Thank you for the opportunity.
This book has some good ideas and the characters are well crafted and likable. 
I liked Isaac and reading about his premonitions added an interesting edge to this book. 
However the writing is stilted at times and  overly complex, making it difficult to get into the book. 
On the whole a good book.

Excellent first book of a duology

I love this book. The world building is great and I love the characters. The protagonists and antagonists are well-developed. The book alternates points of view between the two protagonists which, in itself, is fascinating and done well. The story is intriguing and well-paced and I couldn’t put it down. I strongly recommend this book for fans of the genre and I look forward to the second book.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book via Netgalley for review purposes.

While this is a really good idea and a promising story, the characters, story flow, and some of the writing didn't quite work for me. This feels more like an early draft than the finished product. I'd like to read more of this author's work.

My thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for a free copy to review. This review is entirely my own, unbiased, opinion.
