This book sounds like it has a bit of everything for the fantasy lover: amnesia, adventure, romance, and a traditional fantastic magical backdrop! I can't wait to read more about Katja's adventures.

Love is the most powerful weapon human can do. This was proven with the sibling, Amara, and Katja. While reading, Frozen recurred in my thoughts. There are somehow similarities to the story of the sibling princesses.
Reading is a journey to the world.

This sounds like a book with many different twists and facets. It also reminds me of the children's movie mentioned in other replies. I too wonder how and why she woke up in a forest and what caused her amnesia. Thank you for your great review.

This sounds a little like Frozen to me. The themes of winter and power over ice are familiar, but the rest of the scenario sounds new and interesting. Thanks for the review!

Before I read your review, I was thinking of passing on this one, but you've made me change my mind - thank you!
A really great summary that gives a lot of detail without giving the highlights away.

This book sounds quite nice and I like the two sisters' characters. Indeed it has a slight resemblance to frozen. I might give it a try soon! Thanks for the review.

I feel that this book is too much like Frozen with the concept of two princesses, especially with one being magical. I think that I will pass on this one. Congrats to the author on BOTD though!

Did Amara’s resentment engulf her and release the darkness within her? Will Katja remember the bond that she once shared with Amara? what will be the future of Hale’s Kingdom?

All these are interesting questions and I look forward to finding answers to them by reading this book. Tameem is undoubtedly talented. Congrats on the BOTD.
