Determined by Kandi J. Wyatt

Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy
Source: I received an advance copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Kandi J. Wyatt has outdone herself with this fourth book in the “Four Stars Over Ardatz: Sovereigns” series.  Hest has been crowned King. Nothing has come easy for the King and Queen.  Siobhan and her daughter Mairead face constant danger. Hest’s bond with his dragon is getting stronger. There are physical and mental changes taking place that he often can’t seem to control. The one constant in all of this is his wife and daughter. Siobhan has carried a fear in her since she and her mother were kidnapped. Maybe it is for this reason Hest feels he must do whatever it takes to protect them.

The tension in this book started with Siobhan giving birth. We see how Hest is the one who can calm her and get her to focus. It is this strong bond of love that will hold them together. The tension never lets up. There are threats around every corner, and that includes in her own castle.  I kept thinking to myself that I could not be that strong if I had to go through all the things the characters in this book go through. Then I realized that they draw their strength from their faith. I realized that faith has a lot of power in it.  The books in this series just keep getting better and better. The fifth book looks to be just as good.  I am so proud to be a reviewer of such a wonderful series.  I highly recommend not only this book but her entire series.

This book will be available for purchase  March 21, 2023. Don't wait, pre-order your copy now.
