Review of Wildwing by Emily Whitman

Synopsis: "When Addy is swept back in time, she couldn't be happier to leave her miserable life behind. Now she's mistaken for Lady Matilda, the pampered ward of the king. If Addy can play her part, she'll have glorious gowns, jewels, and something she's always longed for—the respect and admiration of others. But then she meets Will, the falconer's son with sky blue eyes, who unsettles all her plans.

From shipwrecks to castle dungeons, from betrothals to hidden conspiracies, Addy finds herself in a world where she's not the only one with a dangerous secret. When she discovers the truth, Addy must take matters into her own hands. The stakes? Her chance at true love . . . and the life she's meant to live."

My Review Well I did enjoy Wildwing. I loved the time periods but I didn't really connect with the characters. While I enjoyed them, I seemed to like the sub-characters more than the main characters. Also I felt that I had read the book before, and well before the end of the book I could see how it would end, but I kept reading in hopes that something different would pop up. It was still an interesting book and one that could be a favorite for some people, I just found it a little predictable. The feature of "hawking" was a great addition to the book and one thing I loved about it

My Rating: While it wasn't my favorite book it was still enjoyable, so I give it a rating of Two Paws and a Stump Wag.


  1. Well, the cover is beautiful. That's something. It does sound rather predictable and I hate when I like all the minor character more than the MC.

  2. The cover is definitely beautiful and the book wasn't so bad, just too predictable for me and the MC just didn't settle with me.
