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.
I saw a lot of negative reviews for this, but I actually liked it.
It was a little less on the action side of fantasy, but I was genuinely intrigued by both the men. The writing style was sort of smooth and it felt like a light but good read.
I honestly didn’t see the love triangle, it was pretty obvious she favored one over the other.
But if she falls in love with the other guy, I’d be massively pissed. After what all he’s pulled he deserves no less than an execution. Honestly like, I had JUST started liking you.
Lia wasn’t very infuriating as I thought she would be. She was pretty bold and brave when the situation demanded her to be.
The fact that I liked this book was because I had anticipated it to be worse, but it did pretty okay for a fantasy.
