A princess must find her place in a reborn world.
She flees on her wedding day.
She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor's secret collection.
She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father.
She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.
The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can't abide. Like having to marry someone she's never met to secure a political alliance.
Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia flees to a distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—secrets that may unravel her world—even as she feels herself falling in love.
When I first started blogging, this book was HUGE on the blogsophere.
But, I blog about the books I want to read. When I'm done with college, I will get more into doing professional reviews.
Yet, I finally have gotten to this series and I'm really sad I haven't read it before.
Lia was awesome. I want to be her. She's strong willed--which is something female leads lack. The book starts with her running away from home so she doesn't have to be sold of into marriage. She takes her best friend, Pauline (who is the sweetest thing on the planet) and they flee to a little town out of the main city.
Lia becomes a waitress at the cities best inn. The people LOVE her.
And then two handsome strangers show up and start to vie for her attention. We are kept in the dark as to who is who. One of them is an assassin, and one is the prince of Morrighan. But who is who?
It was such a fun book to read. There's a festival that happens and we get to see Rafe and Kaden wrestle--hehe.
And then everything changes and life become far more dangerous for Lia.
Who is the one threatening her?
And what exactly is this gift? What advantage does it give her and why does everyone want it?
I loved how this book threw me in for a loop. It was incredible! The story was well written and the world building drew me in immediately.
4.5 out of 5!
