Review: Armored Hearts by Melissa Turner Lee & Pauline Creeden
Armored Hearts by Melissa Turner Lee & Pauline Creeden is a brilliantly measured and perfectly blended mix of romance, sci-fi, and fantasy. I was swept away into a world across the ocean and dazzled by the amazing story that played out before my eyes. My hunger for an original storyline, imaginative twists and turns, and an edge-of-your-seat page turner was far exceeded in this beautiful masterpiece.
The characters that I discovered within the pages of Armored Hearts are fun and thought-provoking. They truly captured my heart, and I was torn when the story ended. The main characters of this outstanding work of art are Gareth and Jessamine. While we come to know Gareth very well, we get to know Jessamine at the same time that Gareth does. It's so fun to see her through his eyes as she turns his world upside down. If that isn't enough to shake up his world, Gareth discovers a piece of his past that will never leave him the same again.
The wonderful and mesmerizing themes that run through Armored Hearts will leave you contemplating them long after you have finished reading. This is a very uplifting yet challenging story. Your heart will soar above the clouds as battles are won and love is found, and your heart will plummet to its lowest depths when the journey is found to be just beginning and dangers lurk in hidden corners.
If that isn't enough to pique your curiosity to read Armored Hearts, then you don't know what you are missing. Armored Hearts is a creative marvel that will leave you in awe as to the artful and precise brush strokes with which these artists have used to birth this spellbinding tale.
I can't wait until I can join in on the next part of this amazing journey. I recommend this book to all readers who want something that will challenge their thinking, broaden their minds, and touch their hearts.
