Ashley's books always take me by surprise. I KNOW I am going to love them. I love every single one of her books. They still take me by surprise, every time without fail. She writes heroines that are their own heroes. They don't need to be saved. Granted, they like to get themselves into a pickle and do typically need some help. But they are heroes all into themselves.
Wildest Dreams is no different.
This book is Five stars from its first page.
Finnie and Frey <3 My new favorite in the KA universe. It's so different from her other novels, yet it is still her. It grabs you and draws you in, never letting go. Some chapters you are laughing and other you are on the verge of tears. I found myself in the later area quite a few times.
In this universe, in parallel worlds, everyone has a twin. Identical in almost all areas except for who they are. They are completely different people.
Finnie's "Twin" agrees to switch worlds with her. What Finnie doesn't know is that her twin, is a princess. Not only that, but moments after the switch she is rushed off to her wedding. It appears that she left a lot out information. Pretty much everything. But Finnie being who she is, takes it all in strides.
This world that we dive into is wonderful. Dragons and Elves and Gorgeous Men, Oh My.
A Five Star that had me on my toes and in love.
Seoafin "Finnie" Wilde was taught by her parents that life was meant to be lived, every breath was a treasure and to seek every adventure she could find. And she learns this lesson the hard way when they perish in a plane crash when she's fifteen. But she never forgets and when she discovers there is a parallel universe where every person has a twin, she finds a witch who can send her there so she can see her parents again and have the adventure of a lifetime.
But nearly upon arrival in the Winter Wonderland of Lunwyn, she realizes she's been played by her twin of the alternate universe and shortly finds herself walking down the aisle to be wed to The Drakkar.
Instantly thrown into inauspicious circumstances, with years of practice (she did, of course, survive that elephant stampede, if she could do that, she can do anything), Finnie bests the challenges and digs into her adventure. But as Frey Drakkar discovers the woman who is his new wife is not Princess Sjofn, a woman he dislikes (intensely) but instead, his Finnie, a free-spirit with a thirst for venture just like him (not to mention she is his destiny), without her knowledge he orders his new bride bound to his frozen world, everlasting.
