I was sent a arc through net gallery for my honest opinion
Aquila is the story of finding your inner courage and the strength to stand up for what you believe.
Telling to story of Grace a young girl who has had to deal with the death of her parents and a manipulative and control in boyfriend. In the hope of help her to deal with what has happened Grace and her grandmother move to a small town in Tasmainia. Where her life is changed for ever.
The characters were complex at time but yet they are always relatable. You can see them as friends and family.
The alternating of the perspective between the two main characters kept the story moving and made you more fully understand the anguish that each of them felt about the situation. Then the prospective of Henry gives you the story and emotions from every angle. Help you to complete understand how your decisions impact everyone.
It also tries to show you that who you fall in love with is a decision that you need to make for yourself. Whether that love is based on years of gradually getting to know each other or through “love at first sight”, the decision is yours.
This also has a little magic thrown on which helps to add a little extra dimension to the story.
I really enjoyed this and found it easy read. This is a perfect weekend read.
