Friends and Foes was amazing! I loved coming back to see Philip and his story. We met him briefly in A Kiss of a Stranger, and being able to see the incredible man behind th dandy was awesome. I do admit though, his acting like a fool made for some good laughs.
Sorrel is equally amazing. She has been I injured quite severally, and yet fights on. The strength she possess is nearly shocking. I don't know if I would have been as strong in her position. She is a wonderful sister and underneath the pain, she is beautiful and kind hearted.
Eden does an fantastic job of creating such different characters in a world where everyone was pressured to act and dress the same.
Philip reminded me of the character from The Scarlet Pimpernel which made me laugh. My junior year AP European History teacher had us watch the movie, and whenever Philip acted beyond ridiculous, I thought back to that movie. It was great.
The love story developed perfectly. It was frustrating at times, because Sorrel couldn't overlook her pride and unwillingness to be helped. Still, Philip preserved!
There were some great twists that made this a unique story and a fantastic romance.
I give this a 5 out of 5!
