Title: Thrown to the Blue: An Indigo Flame Novel Book One
Author: K.J. Chapman
Foretellings have no place for goodness, only greatness. Princess Ezrahli is far from good, but she is a great woman in a conventional Kingdom, followed by whispers and scorn. However, across the waters is un-convention, magic, and fable. Her existence has been foretold in the battle against dark magic, and destiny shall weave itself into her life because darkness cannot be fought with goodness, only greatness.
Smuggling and sorcery leads to adventure, and adventure leads to destiny. Reed is a prince of the streets, but what he lacks in title, he makes up for in skill; a skill that sets him on a path already written in fate. Can he be more than what is expected? Can he enable greatness in another and survive the process?
Vengeance is a motivator, but it can never be your friend. In the end, it will ask for sacrifice, and only the great will pay the fare.

It’s so rare to find a strong female character who doesn’t fall to clichés but Miss Chapman did a fantastic job of creating the perfect female to root for, Princess Ezrahli. All of the characters were wonderfully developed but she was my favorite. I loved the battle of good versus evil throughout. Chapman has a way of introducing the characters through their least proud moments and building their motives in ways we can understand although we may not like everything they do.
This story is a real page turner to anyone who enjoys fantasy, magic, and suspense. Plus, the worldbuilding was great! When I first started reading, I thought the story would turn out to be like any other but it really stands out in my mind.
