Thanks for stopping by! I’m thrilled to be sharing my mini reviews for These Hollow Vows and These Twisted Bonds by Lexi Ryan. I absolutely love this series!
Brie hates the Fae and refuses to have anything to do with them, even if that means starving on the street. But when her sister is sold to the sadistic king of the Unseelie court to pay a debt, she’ll do whatever it takes to get her back—including making a deal with the king himself to steal three magical relics from the Seelie court.
Gaining unfettered access to the Seelie court is easier said than done. Brie’s only choice is to pose as a potential bride for Prince Ronan, and she soon finds herself falling for him. Unwilling to let her heart distract her, she accepts help from a band of Unseelie misfits with their own secret agenda. As Brie spends time with their mysterious leader, Finn, she struggles to resist his seductive charm.
Caught between two dangerous courts, Brie must decide who to trust with her loyalty. And with her heart.
I first listened to the audiobook of this book and I loved it so much. So of course I then had to buy the pretty hardback copy 🤷🏻♀️😂
These Hollow Vows was such an engaging and absorbing story. It was so very easy to get caught up in Brie’s life as she finds herself caught up in a dark and dangerous situation. I really like the fact that her character isn’t perfect and she makes mistakes. This brings a much more interesting edge to Brie’s character.
There are twists and turns throughout that kept me on my toes. Some I saw coming and others came as a surprise but it all combined the create a bold and captivating read. It’s safe to say I was hooked!
I enjoyed every moment of this book. There was romance, secrets and intrigue at the heart of These Hollow Vows. Oh and that last chapter had me counting down the days to when These Twisted Bonds would be released!
(You can read on for that review)
Brie finds herself caught between two princes and two destinies while the future of the fae realm hangs in the balance.
After Abriella’s sister was sold to the fae, she thought life couldn’t get any worse. But when she suddenly finds herself caught in a web of lies of her own making - loving two princes and trusting neither – things are not quite as clear as she once thought.
As civil war wages in the Court of Darkness, Brie finds herself unable to choose a side. How can she know where she stands when she doesn’t even know herself anymore? In this darkly romantic thrill ride, the more Faerie is torn apart from the inside, the clearer it becomes that prophecies don’t lie and Brie has a role to play in the fate of this magical realm – whether she likes it or not.
This was probably my most anticipated sequel of 2022 and I couldn’t wait to catch up with Brie, Finn and Sebastian. Especially after the way These Hollow Vows ended.
It was so easy to be once again fully immersed in the fantasy world that Lexi Ryan created. There is scheming and plenty of underhand manoeuvres that had me wondering what would happen next. Along with rooting for Brie to make the right decisions. I love how she isn’t the perfect character, she definitely has flaws but I couldn’t help but care about her.
The pacing was great throughout and the chemistry between certain characters (no spoilers) was perfect for me. I loved them together and was so happy with the ending.
These Twisted Bonds is now a favourite fantasy romance of mine. In fact both the books in this series are brilliant and well worth a read!
