Notes:

This is a hard book to review. I spent a couple of days thinking the review over while reading other books, and wondering what to say.

The writing for this was strong, and I really loved the characters. I liked Nancy a lot more than I liked Princess Jade, but I understood Princess Jade’s character. I liked the plot, and how evil the queen was in the story. I liked the magic, and the mystery that sent tension soaring.

Two girls. One Kingdom. No way out..

Princess. Royal. Prisoner. Jade is the heir to the throne, but her mother, the Queen, isn’t willing to give up her title— ever. Queen Katrina doesn’t see her daughter as her legacy, but as a threat that has to be stopped. Jade has never left the palace, and is trapped inside its boundaries… but she wonders if the walls are meant to keep her safe, or keep her imprisoned.

Peasant. Pauper. Savior. Nova left the Kingdom of Sterling before she could crawl— now that she’s returned with her father to rescue her orphaned cousin, it’s nothing short of a nightmare. Magic is used to control the people, and the monarchy is a dictatorship. Within the kingdom, Nova is hunted for a power she doesn’t even know she has… yet.

One boy will intertwine their lives— or tear them apart. Chael is the secretive and handsome royal guard that might have the answers to save both girls, but he’s hiding something dark. An ally with questionable motives, both Nova and Jade have no choice but to trust Chael… and to fall for him.

But the lengths the Queen will employ to secure her crown are unforgivable. In the Kingdom of Sterling, the only thing more powerful than betrayal is magic

I didn’t like how the romance went for this book. I liked the characters, and I preferred Nancy over Princess Jade, but I still enjoyed all the delicious plot and twists and turns that kept on coming. I also didn’t like that cliffhanger, either, but it was a good stopping point for the book, and I can see why it ended there.

I definitely am looking forward to book two, where it shows how the characters advance from the pitfalls their in, what kind of ruling might occur, and if they find what they’re looking for. I’m giving this a 5/5 stars for a strong set of characters, and a really delightful bunch of plot twists.

Until next time,
-Pass Me That Book.
