Escape from Ronwyn is the first novel in The Queen Reborn series by Mary Eggert. Set in a world that is divided between Hope and Fear, young Rane is given a mighty responsibility that she might never be prepared for. While most would think that living under the Hope’s Council is the best option, Rane believes something entirely different. They have a tight grip on her life and she is not okay with that. She runs away, hoping to escape the constant pressure and live incognito. However, it is not easy to run away and evade the clutches of the mighty Hope. Rane is powerful and she knows it, but she simply does not want to use those powers. However, when her security is threatened and she comes under the fire of magick, Rane has no other option but to harness her abilities and learn to be a queen for her people. Can she do it? Can she be the queen her people need?
Escape from Ronwyn is one of those stories that are perfect. You have action, adventure, suspense and a heroine that kicks ass and takes names. I loved the chemistry between Rane and Moira; the camaraderie they had and the way they supported each other was incredible. I hated the Council and everything they stood for. Mary Eggert did an incredible job of building the story while giving Rane enough substance to work with. Rane is smart, she understands her limits and she knows her advantages. I enjoyed how she was willing to do whatever it takes to walk away from the danger and then face it head-on when it comes knocking on her door. This is a good start to a series that is bound to become complex and rich as the story progresses.
