Whoa, this book still knocked all 5 socks off of my feet!
I would leave it at that because that's how I felt after the experience of reading this wonderful novel.
Deception. Intrigue. Love.
A lovely princess dares defy the laws of the kingdom by a single act. From there, it's a wild roller coaster ride. No, it's not a pretty princess book. By far, but there is a true love story hidden within these pages.
I literally gripped the book and chewed my nails and held my breath as I read.
I groaned, angry with the author regarding the huge tangled mess he weaves in the tale, because I am so in love with his characters.
It was the hope of justice that drove me.
From the back:
A faraway kingdom.
A beautiful princess.
A courageous hero.
A ruthless villain.
An impossible choice.
Eliana and Rinan are in love. However, she is destined to become queen of Bariwon, obligated to marry the victor of a competition called the Shoginoc, while Rinan, her royal guardian, is forbidden to marry. Normally they could renounce their titles to be together, but these are not normal times. Abrecan, the malevolent governor of Erd, is determined to win the Shoginoc, thereby placing his easily manipulated son Daimh on Bariwon’s throne. Can Eliana and Rinan find a way to be together without jeopardizing the peace they are so desperately trying to protect?
I wish I could let slip more detail, but the story must be tasted with your own eyes.
