Chaos Unleashed (Pedalstem Lillies)

Chaos Unleashed (Pedalstem Lillies) - AmBear Shellea I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.This is not a normal romance novel. It is an adventure that sweeps you away.Blaze is a woman with no memories. She is a fantastic character. She is strong and feisty and no shrinking violet. She has a temper to match her hair! I certainly wouldn't want to be on her bad side!Demarko is in a similar state to Blaze. He has no memories. He is extremely handsome and charismatic. Together, they must work out why, and how, they have lost their memories.This is an extremely intriguing book! The mystery surrounding the memory loss of both Blaze and Demarko entwines with dreams each of them have of a couple called Red and Woody. Through these dreams, we see the development of a romance between Red and Woody.This book, although the mystery and suspense was riveting, had me wondering if it was meant to be a period romance or set in a parallel universe. The lack of modern conveniences like electricity and cars, jarred somewhat with the modern language. I loved the descriptive grandeur of the castle, village and costumes, but was thrown by the use of modern phrases and the use of makeup. I had this book envisioned as being set in the 1300's or earlier. The best description I can give it is a romantic historical fantasy. However, I was completely caught up in the tale and stuck with it. I'm glad I did! The book ends on a cliffhanger, and left me wanting to find out what happens next! AmBear Shellea has written an exciting and intriguing historical fantasy/romance that tugged on my heart strings. I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the series, Revelation. There is mention of sex, but it is not erotic nor is it explicit. Therefore, I recommend this book if you love historical fantasy romances. - Lynn Worton
