About the Book- White Horse Black Nights by Evie Marceau
We still worship the sleeping fae, though their magic only remains within a few of us.
Locked away for twelve years, Sabine Darrow’s only friends are animals she communicates with using magic. Now, sold as a bride to a villainous high lord, her greatest fear is trading one prison for another. But a potential escape lies in the form of her gruff yet achingly handsome guard, whose loyalty she is determined to break.
A huntsman with heightened senses, Basten “Wolf” Bowborn has more important things to do than transport his master’s new bride. With ancient creatures reawakening along the kingdom’s border wall, he is torn between his duty and his desire to investigate—until a forbidden attraction becomes an unyielding obsession.
Welcome to Astagnon—a kingdom of cruel games and corrupted courts, where the only thing more dangerous than the secrets slumbering underground is falling for the one person you can’t have.
Drawing inspiration from Snow White and the Lady Godiva legend, WHITE HORSE BLACK NIGHTS is a dark enemies-to-lovers fantasy romance that will take you on a journey you’ll never forget. This captivating story of a girl with a special gift is perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas and Jennifer Armentrout!
Our Review of White Horse Black Nights by Evie Marceau
This book was a mixed one for me. There are parts which I loved about the book and the parts that didn’t sit with me quite well. I am going to be rude in saying that even before the first chapter was over, I could see what the whole plot was going to be. The reason is that it’s a very cliche plot and one that I have read and seen in many other books ( Falling for the Bodyguard). Seriously all these kings have to be idiots to send another man to pick up his wife and give them all the time and space to …… do I even need to finish that sentence?
So as I mentioned, almost anybody can anticipate what is going to happen in the book and it does happen so that took away half of the thrill factor from the plot for me. But it was how the book brings another plot track and how it merges and enhances the already unfolding events that made me stick to the book till the end. The second half has some pretty interesting plot elements that elevate the plot a bit.
I am not a fan of the romance of the book because I felt that the romance was more of a matter of convenience and not a genuine stumbled-by-chance thing. Moreover, there were some questionable things termed as romance for me but that doesn’t mean it was bad just that it was predictable and cliche for me. The other thing that I am not a big fan of is the pace which is more of a zig zag. There were moments when you were caught up in the heat of the incidents and other times you were just waiting for something to happen.
In conclusion, I would say that for me the book was a mix of good and bad. I loved the later part of the book. The one where actual things happen after all the romance drama. This is what makes the plot interesting with warring kingdoms, mythical creatures and magic all make for a high fantasy read. Be careful as the book ends on a major cliffhanger. To me, the book had its moments and not-so-best moments but yes, overall it is a decent one.
