Hope Review

Title: Hope

Author: Sam Rook

Book: (The Knights of Av'lor Book One)

Pages: 302

Rating: 4/5

So it starts out a bit differently but I really liked the characters though some of them had no role in the book besides being bad. I mean the main characters were almost killed by him but they never actually met so I am a bit disappointed that there isn't going to be a second book. I hate stories that have an open ending. Well there might be another book but not for a while.
Kathryn (Kate) has just lost her mother and daughter but now she is unexpectedly thrown into another world (Av'lor) filled with Deamons. She meets Hal (also a human from Earth) and almost dies only to wake up inside a castle filled with knights that have wings. Angels? No, but they aren't evil either. In fact they protect Av'lor from monsters.
Kate has the Sight, which means she can see the future, and having that she manages to save lives. As a reward she asks that she and Hal be given a chance to join the Knighthood. Since she is very powerful when it comes to magic she makes it in and so does Hal, though he gets in because of his swordsmanship. Sir Lanclor is her instructor but she feels drawn to him and he to her but he knows he can't do anything about it. On the one night they can change who they are he sleeps with her and realizes that he truly loves her. But what can he do about it?
Together they continue to try and find a spell to win the war but their time is growing short. Now it is up to Kate to win the war and save the man she loves.
Will the portal be destroyed? Will her Sight of Lanclor dying be wrong? How will she prevent it? Will she survive the outcome?
So I didn't cry at the end because it would've been a terrible ending. No I cried when I thought Hal was going to loose one of his wings. Go figure. I did enjoy this book and I hope you will read it too!
