      You know how sometimes you get a book you’re really excited to read, and then life decides to kick you in the nether regions as a means to prevent you from reading said book? Well, such is what happened with The Hawk In Winter. I was super excited to read it, and then life became all kinds of crazy. I kept trying to start, only have something get in my way. Then, when I finally had some free time to read, I was a silly individual who forgot about the book and read some other things. Finally, l [...]

      I didn’t expect to love this book but I did! I admit it did take some time for me to get into it as the beginning is on the slower side, some telling backstory and dense character and plot set up. But once I got into it the action picked up and kept going. Although I believe “The Hawk in Winter” is billed as a YA novel (meaning the main characters are juveniles), for some reason this book read as more adult to me. Not because of the content, just more in the voice and tone of the narrative [...]

      At first I was a little lost trying to wrap my head around this new world. We're given info about it little piece by little piece and I personally like more background to start, especially since it's fantasy and I like to have something to relate to as I envision the story. That said, it did come together and and I'm curious what more background (if any) we learn in the rest of the series. Background is just my preference, so I don't knock stars for it. Authors get some poetic license in my mind [...]

      ~Thanks to the author for sending me a copy in exchange for a honest review~Ok, wow. I was hooked from the start, and astonished at how much detail Bekah Clark described with The Hawk In Winter. Her fantasy world is easy to picture with her endless description delivered in clever ways as to avoid long descriptive paragraphs. I absolutely love the characters. Maevan and Xenya are so strong willed and rebellious and share a kind heart. Every character has a purpose, though it is not always clear f [...]

      I knew by the 20% mark that I would really love this book and it would go on my “favorites” shelf, and I was right! I admit I had no real expectations when starting it, seeing as how I’d never read the author before and the description felt a bit “wide-reaching” to me. Wondered if she’d pull it off and keep my interest, and I truly believe she did! I was so immersed in this book and impressed with the level of detailing on almost every single aspect and the characters were all authen [...]

      This novel by Bekah Clark was a great change of pace for me, as I normally lean towards more realistic-style fiction, but this was one beautiful fantasy tale that I couldn’t put down! I did have to have some patience in the beginning until I felt that I was more caught up in the thrust of the story, but the author does a great job of explaining all the backstory and sub plots. I don’t rehash plotlines (That is what the book description is for), but I enjoyed the easy flow and inventive ideas [...]

    7. Lady Ronin on said:

      I actually enjoyed this book a lot more than frozen queen. Maevan was not as childish as Phaedra was right off the bat. She goes through a lot over the course of the book and has a lot of ups and downs. The family dynamic was also interesting. There was a little romance and I have a feeling, hoping, there will be more in the next book in the series. I don't want to give too much away so I'll stop here.

      My first review of 2018! This time it’s The Hawk in Winter (Rise of the Hawk Book 1) by Bekah Clark. This one hit my TBR list after a recommendation and it was a great choice!Synopsis (from the author): Maevan, Korla, and Renna, three devoted sisters, have been trained all their lives how to defend themselves, hunt, and strengthen their minds by their mother, Queen Xenya. What they didn't prepare for was separation.Many years ago, Queen Xenya of the First House was forced to flee her throne t [...]

      Wow Filled with intrique and fantasy. It sure pulls you in. What a great read depicting strong women. You can feel the tension

    10. Karen *ReaderGirl* on said:

      4.5 starsWhat fun! At first I wasn’t sure what to really make of this story, but soon I found myself sinking into this magical and creative world that Bekah Clark created in The Hawk in Winter and found myself totally transported to another time and place altogether. For me a mark of a good book is if it can 1) take me away from the ‘real world’ for a while 2) entertain me and make me think, and 3) Make me believe in it. And for me, this book did all this and more. She has a few rough edge [...]

      I really enjoyed “The Hawk in Winter” by author Bekah Clark, even though fantasy, especially teen fantasy isn’t usually one of my more preferred genres (don’t dislike it, just don’t generally gravitate). But I was drawn to the description and liked the descriptive and passionate writing style of the author in the sample, so I read the whole thing. I was really impressed! I thought Ms. Clark did such a wonderful job with the descriptions of the world and the different characters. I also [...]

    12. Stacy on said:

      Bekah Clark demonstrates a strong and almost addicting narrative style and great attention to detail in “The Hawk In Winter” (Rise of the Hawk book 1) that kept me eagerly turning the pages of my Kindle late into the evening. The “fantasy-language” (giving the authentic flavor of a fantasy novel and really selling it) is vivid, and the characters really move the story forward in an entertaining and engaging manner (loved Xenya and Mae). While I do think some parts could have been pared d [...]

    13. Rachel Lewis on said:

      I loved this book. Mae was a favorite but I liked Xenya a lot too. It was fantasy, which I don't usually read,but it was recommended by a friend and I am glad I did. I didn't feel as if situations were contrived and I'm looking forward to the sequel.

    14. Guy Worthey on said:

      The Hawk In Winter is a swords-and-telepathy fantasy with quite a lot of coy romances among the youthful protagonists. The plot was paced well. The first violent thing didn't happen until page 143. A nicely original plot kept the reader guessing. It wasn't too bloody, even for me (I'm squeamish). The likeable characters were distinct. The protagonists suffered enough to elicit sympathy.On the down side, the writing had a lot of crafting mistakes that irritated me (maybe I know too much about how [...]

      A very interesting and fast-moving plot line with very engaging and relatable characters.“The Hawk in Winter” is one of the most intriguing reads I've had in a while, as evidenced by the fact that I finished the book in 24 hours. There are a few different story lines you follow. They are well written and connected in such a way that they are easy to follow and they keep the story moving forward at a good pace.There were a few grammar and spelling errors, but very few and in no way did they h [...]

      The Hawk In Winter by Bekah Clark is the first book in the Rise of the Hawk series and was one of the most intense books I have read in a long time. This is not the usual type of book that I read but Bekah has such an amazing way of writing, that this book is both medieval and futuristic at the same time that I would completely forget what time period I was reading about. Her characters came alive on the pages and her descriptions were so visual that I was in awe. This book has good, evil, battl [...]

    17. Katie Jo on said:

      At first I felt a little lost when I started reading this book, but by the second or third chapter I was hooked! The story is highly intriguing and the characters extremely well developed. The basic premise of the story is there are 3 ruling families, or houses, on Aemonsha (a planet much like ours) and the Third House has taken control from the First House by force. This happened many years before the story takes place and the story follows Xenya and her 3 young daughters, Maeven, Korla, and Re [...]

    18. Christina Murray on said:

      What an unexpected gem this book is. My reader group recommended this book, and as usual, they were on point. Ms. Clark was not only able to create a captivating and enticing world, she was also able to create a set of characters that were realistic and relatable. I mourned everytime that I had to put this book down and rejoiced every time I got the chance to pick it up. Now that I am done fangirling, let's talk about the plot real quick. The plot has so many plot twist and turns that I never sa [...]

    19. Lauren Lauren on said:

      Enjoyable readI thoroughly enjoyed this book. The characters are likable and I look forward to watching them develop in future books. The plot is pretty solid (only one thing bothered me - see below), with good editing and proofreading. Spoiler alert My only issue is with the telepath prisoner.why didn't he communicate with the Queen or Maeve and have them rescue him? It felt like the last 20% of the book was a bit rushed and disjointed.

    20. Lizabeth on said:

      I enjoyed this book very much. The characters are very likable, very interesting and most of all, not predictable!!!

    21. Monika P. on said:

      This is the first book by Bekah Clark that I read. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. I loved it! The author built a world were women rule and did it in a way that you just have to love the characters and their surroundings. From the first page on you wonder who is friend and who is foe. Don't assume anything. Just like in real life people change their minds from one minute to the next. Or do they? Court intrigue, power struggle, love, and madness. It's all there. I thoroug [...]

    22. Paige Kar on said:

      First of all, I'd like to thank the lovely author for sending me a free copy of this book. I will be putting mine up for a giveaway so another lucky reader may have a chance to experience this intriguing world.So I am not sure where to start as contrary to others below, I did not find myself gripped or rooting for any characters and I couldn't quite put my finger on it I think it was the way it has been written. The author offers a lot of detail through the mind of the characters, but it borders [...]

    23. Peter Carlstrom on said:

      It was great, but.Somehow In could not connect with promiscuous Prince Charming with no love for the heroine and kick ass main girl with, nada, zilch, zero to offer. The fizz just went flat. The concept was DOD for me. Maybe with new hero and the magical connection it will get better????

    24. Lady Ronin on said:

      I recently re-read this and forgot how much I had liked it. Maevan's great. Jorgan's awesome. Gonna re-read the rest now.
