“Jennifer Estep excels at writing strong heroines and Lady Everleigh is no exception.”
~ Under the Covers

When I first heard about this series, I was very excited about it. I find that this entire concept in intriguing not to mention that the title of this book captures your attention very well.

Jennifer Estep excels at writing strong heroines and Lady Everleigh is no exception. This series is marketed as Gladiator meets Game of Thrones and I can definitely sense that here. It has a ton of emotion to it, most of it negative as it deals with revenge and anger. However, Estep’s writing style keeps it from being too much of a downer. I found that I enjoyed the story despite it being a bit slow to begin with. That’s expected though since this is the first book in the series and the author must explain the workings of the world. I think if you’re a fan of Estep’s writing and the Fantasy genre, then you’ll probably enjoy this new UF world that she has created.

I don’t think I’ve read anything quite like this book so it was especially entertaining for me to dive into. I can already tell that this series will have a good number of fans because of its kickass heroine and unique style. So if you’re looking for a new series to sink your teeth into, this one should definitely be on your list to read!
