Review #1

Title- Serpent & Dove

Rating– 5/5
Genre- Fantasy

POV- 1st person, past tense, alternating 2 points of view

Trope- Enemies to Lovers


Characters

Lou- stubborn, strong willed and magical

Reid- a religious Chasseur whose entire purpose is to rid the world of witches and magic

Plot-

Louise le Blanc lives in the city of Cesarine, living off whatever she could steal. There, witches like Lou are hunted. They are feared. And they are burned.

As a huntsman of the Church, Reid Diggory has lived his life by one principle: Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live. But when Lou pulls a wicked stunt, the two are forced into an impossible situation—marriage.

Lou, unable to ignore her growing feelings, yet powerless to change what she is, must make a choice. And love makes fools of us all.


Prose-

I love how Shelby writes, clear, concise & it flows beautifully. No complaints

Pacing-

The first half she didn’t have much of an objective, but she was more assertive with agency the second half.

Best part-

Strong witch heroine. I loved her personality.

What I’d change-

I’d take out some Bible verses, sometimes it was a bit much.

Comments-
Pg. 306 – perfection
Pg. 418- brought everything together & got me really excited! Raising the stakes!
