“Divine Rivals” by Rebecca Ross

Kylie recommends: Divine Rivals by Rebecca Ross

Genre: Historical romantasy

Reading level: YA

Summary: This enchanting historical war-time romantasy story starts with “anonymous” epistolary letters between the main characters, paralleled with their rival positions at the local newspaper, before focusing more on the grittiness and realities of war.

Kylie says: I loved the characters and their romance but found the plot to be a bit slow. The way Ross writes is encapsulating and feels like a breath of fresh air. The ending leaves you on a major cliffhanger, so get ready to pick up book #2 in this duology.
