Swallow, daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them 'til they've time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not, cure not, 'til the hour. You won't speak and you won't tell, you won't call on heaven or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, daughter. Stay alive. The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn't speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too. Then she predicted the king would sell his soul and lose his son to the sky. My father has a claim to the throne, and he is waiting in the shadows for all of my mother's words to come to pass. He wants desperately to be king, and I just want to be free. But freedom will require escape, and I'm a prisoner of my mother's curse and my father's greed. I can't speak or make a sound, and I can't wield a sword or beguile a king. In a land purged of enchantment, love might be the only magic left, and who could ever love . . . a bird?… (mere)

This book is brilliant and beautiful. I suspect it will be my top read of 2016. No need to say more. Just go read it. ( )

Quite a read!!! I always like books with strong female protagonist and this book was one. Nevertheless the book is unique in its own way. ( )

The world and culture should have been interesting. I just got tired of the 21 yr old protagonist whining like a spoiled preteen. ( )

I thought this book was amazing. It is my first book by this author, i am so glad i found it.

The writing is unusual and i can understand not everyone getting it, it is written almost poetic and not all things are said but some things are implied or suggested. There are also motives that are not really discussed but more revealed through events.
'Lark' is an adorable character, she longs to be loved but seems to spend her life being used as a tool by others. The King is quite complex, he has heavy responsibility and sometimes he has to fulfill his duty first despite how he feels, i felt he was written well, balancing the 'alpha' male with the softer side, when needed.
HEA.
Secondary characters who has his story in book 2.
No intimate scenes with anyone other than the Hero and heroine.
No other woman drama.
No cheating.

Swallow, daughter, pull them in, those words that sit upon your lips. Lock them deep inside your soul, hide them 'til they've time to grow. Close your mouth upon the power, curse not, cure not, 'til the hour. You won't speak and you won't tell, you won't call on heaven or hell. You will learn and you will thrive. Silence, daughter. Stay alive. The day my mother was killed, she told my father I wouldn't speak again, and she told him if I died, he would die too.
