Definitely the epitome of fairy tales of the modern time. J. Lloyd Morgan weaves together a intrigue filled plot with enough twists, characters, and romance to keep you engaged until the very last page.
This book right from the beginning reminded me of a modern fairytale. All the little quirks and schemes presented in true fairytale fashion and I definitely love the fact that the story was one that could bring back the classics of a fairytale, yet keep its own original plot to it. The way I read it from the synopsis on various websites and on the back of the book, I thought I had a pretty good idea of how the story was going to begin, and I was ready to let the plot run its course. But that really is not how it went at all.
The romance plays a big role in this book especially since there is more than one romantic intermingling going on. I adore the fact the book actually went against the typical “princesses and princes fall in love” romantic theme and made it a little more…forbidden. I mean really, who can resist forbidden romance.
Those who were fans of the fairytales of back in the day and of course all out there who just can’t resists a forbidden romance, The Hidden Sun is the one to read!
