United Vidden by Fern Brady tells the story of Verena, princess of Dravidia, who encounters many problems when it comes to her rise to ruling the throne as the first female heir. Her solution is to run away, but little did she know that her escape would prejudice her world more than she could have ever imagined. By the time she goes back home, it is too late to rule as she previously wanted, so she has to do everything in her power to restore peace and stability to her lands once again, even in the midst of an internal and external war. Her feelings for Prince Amiel ra Aulden come into conflict when he becomes the conqueror of her kingdom, but she must persevere through all the obstacles that life throws at her.
United Vidden by Fern Brady is surprisingly original and innovative, considering that it is an intergalactic world type of story. It is unlike anything I have read before in that genre. I believe Verena to be a very relatable character, especially because of her growth and how she soon discovers what real life is like and how she adapts to continuous changes. This novel never stops surprising the reader. There is a lot of action but also very raw human connections, which make it a little more realistic and harder to lose focus. Overall, United Vidden is an extremely original and creative novel that definitely leaves you wanting more and more out of it. I can’t wait for the sequel. United Vidden has a lot of potential in the current commercial world we live in.
