In a world that has been divided amongst the Hunter race and the Warrior, prisoners who have fallen prey to King Cyrus' decrees are forced into the arena to fight until death. Winner is granted mercy and privilege to see another sunrise. Death unto the weak. In an attempt to get back at everyone who has ever shut her out, seventeen year-old Princess Echo becomes another victim, dragging Ayden, her forbidden love, along in a race to freedom, to find out who she really is, and to put a world that has been swallowed by lies back together again.
When death threatens the forbidden love of an unlikely couple and they are forced to do the unthinkable, to what extent will they go to be together?
Before we get to the review, I would like to say a huge thank you to Nadège for providing this eARC to Bex 'n' Books. I'd also like to introduce one of our two new reviewers Kay. I have yet to read this book; it honestly pains me to admit this, as I've being following Nadège for a while now and am desperate to feast on Burning Bridges. I asked my lovely friend and admin, Kay, if she would mind helping out with the many books that need to be read and reviews that need to be written. She graciously accepted - yay for us!
I trust her tastes and opinions explicitly. And I promise myself that I will read Burning Bridges as soon as humanly possible. - Bex
When I began reading this book, I knew nothing about it other than the title and the author. I went in blind but I'm so glad I had the chance to read it and I absolutely could not put it down. I was sucked into the world of Echo and Ayden and I didn't want to leave.
Burning Bridges is a love story with trials, tragedy, gladatorial battles and devastation. Echo and Ayden's lives are so controlled by either their circumstances or other people that I actually felt claustrophobic, smothered and desperate for them both. This story keeps you hanging on as you really can't guess whether the ending is going to be a happy one or not and I'm not going to spoil it by telling you.
This is a very fast read and it will leave you entranced and wanting more. Nadège is a wonderful author and I can't wait for the sequel to this story or any other story that she writes. I thoroughly enjoyed Burning Bridges and I look forward to reading more from Nadège. Well done Nadège.
I would give it 5 stars as the story is very worthy of them, but I hope the spelling and grammar mistakes are corrected and also some of the text is in bold and I'm not sure if it should be!
