The Blameless is about the Princess of Predonia named Briana. One day, her castle is broken into and overthrown, which resulted in her family being brutally killed. The royal family is dead except for her. Brie, the terrified princess, does not know what to do, and she is scared for her life. Three burly men come to her aid and make sure that she is safe from harm’s way. Brie was then revealed to the Blameless, magical humans that were given magic by the gods. Throughout the novel, Brie and three men named Flinton, Kove, and Derek try to restore peace to the Kingdom of Predonia. They go through many challenges and adventures while Brie attempts to understand her special gifts.
The Blameless is a strong fantasy novel with a perfect structure. I cannot wait until the second book because of the slow-moving, yet intriguing plot. Throughout the novel, it kept me interested, but the beginning was rather hard to get into. Once I got more into the book, I could not stop reading because of the crazy adventures and angst of the story. Brie was a great character to read about because of her interesting dilemmas, mysteries about her family, and more. I loved the protectors because they were very unique characters, and they made the text so much better. The author was very descriptive and detailed, but I did find that some of her phrases were repetitive. For example, it said numerous times that Brie was “small”, “tiny”, etc., and it got a little irritating. Other than that this book was great, and piqued my interests. If a potential reader enjoys this type of fantasy, they should pick it up.
