Today's BOTD is a phenomenal choice for fantasy readers. This story shows off the beauty of sisterly bonds. I would really love to go through the book. Thanks for an excellent review.

This is an intriguing science fiction that explores the life of princess Amara among many things. I'd love to know more about the life of Amara. BOTD

The best thing about this book is how Amara relies on Katja to help her control her powers. This is obviously unlike most fantasy books that often display a female protagonist relying on a "prince" to save her from her troubles.

Books on magic are often not my favorite. But the princess's character is mystical to ignore.

I hope that Amara and Katja succeed in remembering their past as I believe this will further cement their bond. I've read a book by Tayma Tameem before, so I know Awakening will be good too.

Wow! This is a beautiful review. Amara and Katja's story sounds not only intriguing, but also captivating. Seems only Katja can save her sister, but what if she is the cause of Amara's anger? Because as powerful as she is, Amara is at times envious of her older sister, and her return means that Amara gets ousted. Can't wait to find out. Congrats on being the BOTD.

Tayma Tameem is fast becoming a name to watch out for. This princess story will delight tweens and teens. And the young at heart. I especially like the name Katja.

The story sounds wonderful! Great job on the review. Is it me or does this story sound oddly like Frozen? Either way, I being a huge fan would love to read he book and identify the uniqueness that sets the book apart from the story we all know and love.

A beautiful retelling of The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson. Fans of the movie Frozen will definitely enjoy this new take on a classic story! I look forward to reading it! Thanks for the great review.

This story is impressive, although it's fictional it has some facts about humans being possessed by spirits or powers that they can't imagine,I'll recommend this book to people who love magical tales.

Thank you for sharing your review with us. This book’s plot reminds me a lot of Frozen. I like the fantasy element as well as the sisterly relationship, and I look forward to adding this book to my reading list.
