I was totally shocked! I don't usually read or get into fantasy, but I read the best fantasy arranged-marriage story ever! what can I say? Arranged marriages are intriguing. The Alliance of Isian by Serena Clarke was not at all what I expected. Much more! If you want to read a sample chapter, visit the author's website at https://serenaclarke.wordpress.com/books. It's well worth your time.

 

My review: “The Alliance of Isian is an enchanting story and very difficult to put down. Gabrielle is a strong character and I could feel the emotions she was experiencing. I could feel her frustration in being forced to marry someone she did not know, and whose background was totally so different from her own. Alec is likewise a strong character and has his definite opinions, but he is also very sensitive to Gabrielle's feelings of inadequacy in marrying a stranger. As time passes, I could see the respect they gradually develop for each another and how they learn to understand one another's differences. They learn to accept one another's faults and failings. I noticed the change in both characters, a change for the better, as Gabrielle and Alec fall in love. This is one of the best fantasies I've read.”
