Goodreads Synopsis:

“*Warning: Some sexual content and adult situations.

An Epic Struggle In The Land of Àlainnshire…

When her brother King Fionn dies during an epidemic, Princess Aislin is compelled to put her own life on hold. Appointed regent, she must preserve the Kingdom of Arianrhod until Fionn’s son is old enough to take the throne.

Motivated by duty and love for her family, strong-willed Aislin has worked for eleven years to maintain the peace and prosperity of her kingdom. That idyll is shattered when Prince Jariath of Morrigan invades Arianrhod with a formidable army and a single purpose: to force her to marry him. 

Barely escaping him, Aislin flees with a friend into neighboring Blackthorne Forest. The forest is dark, dangerous, and uncivilized. It’s also the shortest way to the Kingdom of Wyndham and the help she needs. 

Blackthorne Forest is also full of surprises. Captured by hooded men and taken into the heart of the forest, Aislin will soon forge an unexpected alliance with a being she never dreamed existed.” 

My review:

What I liked about Aislin of  Arianrhod 

*The elves ears were movable. For some reason, that fascinated me….lol.

* Tristan really wasn’t a bad guy and Aislin was perfect as the older (think 35) heroine.

* The overall story (along with the back stories) were great and well written. 

What I disliked about Aislin of Arainrhod:

* Aislin’s mother and her excuse as to why she neglected her. While I do feel bad about her captivity and rape at the hand of Jariath’s father, it still didn’t excuse her treatment of Aislin.

* Other than that, I have no complaints.

Would I read Aislin of Arainrhod again?

Yes and I plan on reading the other books in the series

Would I reccomend Aislin of Arainrhod to people? 

Yes

Book I am reading now:

Rex Cresting (Elei's Chronicles, #2)
