Review of ‘The Falcon’s Heart’ by Diana Green
This was an enjoyable lesbian fantasy novel. I have wanted to read a book by Green for a while so I was excited to hear she released her first WLW story. I knew with our similar love for spec-fic that there was a good chance I was going to enjoy this read and I’m happy to say that I did.
As this is a fantasy story, there are outlaws, a princess, and magic, but this isn’t heavy fantasy. While this book appealed to me as a fantasy fan, I think it would work for readers that are newer to the genre too. The setting is great and you feel like you are there, but there is no heavy info-dumping when it comes to the world-building, so the book reads well. It never gets bogged down in the weeds and instead moves along at a nice fast pace.
The character of Saba really steals the show. While I like the “Falcon”, her character doesn’t get to shine as much. Saba has such growth that the story really is about her. This is about Saba breaking her bonds and becoming the person she was always meant to be. The romance between the two is very sweet. I do wish that the characters had more time alone together. I’m a slow burn fan so I like a longer time for the chemistry to develop but that is just a personal preference.
This was an entertaining fantasy story that I enjoyed reading. The price is only 2.99 US dollars right now which in my mind makes this a steal. Also, we get a little tease at the end that Green’s next book is a WLW paranormal. My interest is definitely peaked and I’m looking forward to reading more by Green. 3.75 Stars.
