A Fragile Enchantment by Allison Saft - Book Review

Review by @elle.cheshire

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️✨

This very much felt like a historical romance book with a dash of magic and world building. It was essentially a romance story with a background plot of what’s going on in the kingdom. Which worked to give a whimsical romantic story - it wrapped up nicely since it’s a standalone and it’s have a light spring feel. Nothing too heavy to it.

It was a little romance heavy for me but that’s a me problem. I was expecting more focus on other elements and I hadn’t realised it was a standalone so of course the romance took centre stage and went through all the stages where usually I prefer them more slow burn.

The writing was easy and bright and soft. Definitely a beautiful sweet book. I did like Niamh and her bright clumsy emotional characterisation, it made her very lovable and her counter part was the exact opposite which made for some fun banter. All the characters were interesting enough and the setting of the season and the whirlwind of dresses lined with emotions was fun. It was a good book just didn’t really match with my current tastes 🤷‍♀️

A bit about me… I love all things morally grey and magical! 

My favourite series is Red Rising and I’m sucker for found family. 

I drink way too much tea and live out my fantasy dreams by visiting medieval festivals and doing archery! 

If I’m not reading you’ll find me writing my book or dreaming of far away places.
