I can't believe this book by new author, D. Renee Bagby--but from the looks of this book, ADRIENNE, she is going to lots of success in writing. ADRIENNE has plenty of everything in it. It has magic, romance, action, mystery and whole of a lot more. You'll have to read it to find out. Do not be turned off by the beginning part of the heroine's attack scene. This story will weave its magic over you just like it did me.
I enjoyed also the secondary characters like Khursid and Bayard who's keeping their relationship private until a curious young girl named Rena, discovers them.
There's a lot more I could say, but I don't want to ruin it for the readers. I can truly say that you too will love, ADRIENNE.
I give this a rating of 5 Stars.
