Determined to save his princess from a fate stranger and more terrible than death, Hadrian has no qualms about using Hadley for his own ends. But he finds himself captivated by her enquiring mind and luscious body, and soon he is torn between saving his world and saving his woman.
Ms. Royce has just reignited my passion for fantasy!
I honestly don’t know how to start this review. Normally I expand on the characters and the plot, but I just don’t know what to say. Hadley and Hadrian are two characters that have so many different levels; a short description about them wouldn’t do them justice.
I will also say that the book blurb doesn’t do it justice either. I really didn’t know what to expect and I would say for most of the first third of the book I was unsure where Everywhere and Nowhere was headed. I want to clarify that it was NOT a bad thing. I was absolutely engaged in the story the whole time. It felt like a mystery, romance, fantasy and even maybe a bit paranormally too. I was biting my nails wondering what was going to happen next. When things started coming together, all I can say is WOW didn’t see that coming!
Everywhere and Nowhere is not a light read that will fulfill your standard romantic novel needs. The story is complex and engaging and you will need to commit time to its amazing unfolding. It was such a fantastic escape and just what I needed. Romance stories can sometimes get mundane and I can honestly say that Everywhere and Nowhere stirred things up and got my juices going in more ways than one. This was a whole body experience for me.
I admit that I love my romance no matter the genre and I have shied away from fantasy, because romance is usually not a huge component of the storylines. Ms. Royce totally blew my misconception of that out of the water. If there are more stories like this out there, sign me up. What a breath of fresh air!
One more note before I conclude this review. This is a rerelease of a prior story (First Dimension). After I read the book, I researched when the next book was coming out and discovered Everywhere and Nowhere is actually a new title. I looked over one of the lesser star reviews and I will say most, if not all, of the complaints of the story were corrected in this new version. YAY!! It just keeps getting better and better.
So don’t wait, pick this book up. I can’t recommend Everywhere and Nowhere high enough if you enjoy your fantasy with a bit of mystery and romance mixed in.
