Name: You are Mine
Author: Janeal Falor
Series: Mine, #1
My rating: 4 stars
Serena knows a few simple things. She will always be owned by a warlock. She will never have freedom. She will always do what her warlock wishes, regardless of how inane, frivolous, or cruel it is. And if she doesn’t follow the rules, she will be tarnished. Spelled to be bald, inked, and barren for the rest of her life—worth less than the shadow she casts.
Then her ownership is won by a barbarian from another country. With the uncertainty that comes from belonging to a new warlock, Serena questions if being tarnished is really worse than being owned by a barbarian, and tempts fate by breaking the rules. When he looks the other way instead of punishing her, she discovers a new world. The more she ventures into the forbidden, the more she learns of love and a freedom just out of reach. Serena longs for both. But in a society where women are only ever property, hoping for more could be deadly.
***I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review***
‘You are Mine’ follows the story of Serena, who lives in a world where women are nothing but possessions. The men are all warlocks, so they have more control over women. Women are not allowed to speak with the men freely, and if they offer their opinions, they are hexed by the men.
Wow. This is such a good book. It definitely deserves more fame.
Serena was such an amazing character! I totally loved her from the beginning. She is a great protagonist. Zade was very intriguing. Cynthia was one of the sweetest characters I’ve read. Katherine was just plain awesome.
The plot was an excellent one, and the execution did not fail. I was feeling all the emotions which Serena was feeling. The world-building is so beautifully done. I can’t gush enough about this book!
Overall, I give this book 4.5 stars. Can’t wait to start the next one!
