Broken Dove (Fantasyland #4) by Kristen Ashley

This. THIS is the Kristen Ashley I fell in love with. Big sweeping epic romances with loss and redemption. Heat and hurt. Love and lust. Fritos and ….well not Fritos.
(Giggle snort)

Welcome back to the long, not over edited books of KA. I didn’t know just how much I missed you till I was done with Broken Dove. I mean the sheer value of a Kristen Ashley book has always been a reason she is on my auto click buy button list. Quality and value folks it’s a wonderful thing.

Okay on to the real review. Apollo gave a witch a bag full of diamonds in the hopes of gaining love that was lost to him. Ilsa is ripped from the hands of her abusive husband and into a different world altogether. What happens is a journey of self discovery and learning. It’s not who the person looks like in their parallel universe but whom they really are on the inside. Finding this out doesn’t come easy. Apollo can be cruel and emotional abuse is just as scaring as physical. I will be honest, at times I really didn’t like Apollo….like at all. The road to redemption and love is a great one. Have no fear as always we get a very good, very hot and very satisfying ending. Plus an amazing epilogue :)

Oh! And we get to visit with all out friends from previous Fantasyland books! My man and all time favorite from Golden Dynasty Dax Lahn was in full affect. So swoon worthy when it comes to saving the day. Lordy he needs a book two or a novella or something.

The story’s not over yet peeps. There is more to come in this Fantasyland series. Not sure if it will be a spin off series or another in this one, but I am excited to see what happens next!

4 AMAZING stars for a return to long books filled with KA goodness!

Far too young, Apollo Ulfr lost Ilsa, his wife, the love of his life and the mother of his two children. The grief of her loss does not settle in his soul, it solders to it. But when he discovers there is a parallel universe where his wife may have a twin, he feels there's hope and sets about bringing her to his world so he can have her back.

But Ilsa Ulfr of our world is married to the parallel universe's twin, Pol, who is not a good man. Not in any way. She's on the run from him and the last thing she wants is to be transported to a fantastical world and be forced to take his side as his wife, even if he is not Pol. And Apollo finds the broken, bitter Ilsa nothing like his beloved and he further wants nothing to do with her.

But darkness is looming and evil is amassing. Apollo must protect his land and keep his family safe, including the new Ilsa
