Princess Evelyn accidentally poisons herself with a love potion. When Samantha Kemi is called to hunt for the right ingredients to cure the princess, she has to go on a long and dangerous quest to save the princess and save her family’s name. I thought this book was pretty decent because it's all about magic and a competition with rival alchemists, to see who can cure the princess. I love a good adventure book and this is a great book about a 17-year-old girl who has to go out with a friend and help cure the princess. The main character faces many conflicts, which can leave you sitting on the edge of your seat. This book is interesting because I rarely read fantasy novels and this one was a surprisingly gripping read. There are other books to the series, which I wish the library had. Otherwise, I recommend it to anyone who likes a good adventure with a few mythical creatures like mermaids, yetis, and even unicorns. 4/5 stars

I loved Madly. What made me fall in love with it instantly was Sam Kemi, the protagonist. She's strong, capable, and smart. Another strong point of the novel was that it kept me completely absorbed with its action and intensity. I was invested and really, really enjoyed the ride.

The only part I found a little weird was that the ending was a little quick. It wasn't rushed and didn't feel unrealistic, but as I was approaching the end, I looked at how many pages were left (there weren't many) and was little confused on how Alward was going to wrap it up in the amount left. She did manage to finish the book very nicely and the story was complete, but I still felt as if the author had been given a set amount of pages, and she had written freely until she reached about the last 10% of the novel, and then thought, "Oh shoot, I've gotta wrap up because I'm almost at my page limit." But the story was definitely whole and complete, and I finished it feeling satisfied.

Madly was a very good read and I highly recommend it, especially to those who enjoy strong leads and fast plots.

I actually really enjoyed this book. To be honest, I only looked at this because of the cover. But really, I have never read about magic potions. So I really loved this book for the fact that it was original in my brain. The author did an amazing job with the ending. It was completely satisfying. The only thing I would've changed is that this is a series. I think that the author is a good enough writer to make it, but I think she could've made the ending with a cliff hanger. If only to keep people hooked on the idea for another year until the next book comes out.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Nothing really violent. A girl gets pretty severely by a magical animal. The main character gets caught in a magical plant. An avalanche. Really nothing to worry about.
