Charlie knows how to be a princess. Now she must learn to be a queen.
She sacrificed her heart in exchange for the fragile peace of her kingdom, but in the wake of their beloved king’s assassination, peace is hard to come by. Threats and conspiracies emerge with every turn, and all the while her wedding looms closer.
Between funerals and hangings, coronations and balls, Charlie must find the strength to prove to her people — and to herself — that she can be the queen they need, even though it required breaking her heart in two.
Her allies are few and unexpected, and enemies await in the most familiar of places. Will Charlie live long enough to see her wedding day? Or will the perils of her choices finally catch up to her?
“The King is Dead! Long live the King!”
The phrase always balled me. Only moments after a beloved king dies, the people wish a long life to the next one. It gives the feeling that there is not time to mourn the past, only look to the future.
Spoiler alert if not read the first two books.
Who to trust? Charlie is in Luan after the death of Rowan. The people there don’t trust her and they don’t like Oliver after hearing he ran away.
Oh, the emotions of this book have me all over the place. I love this one more. I am loving Charlie. She is becoming more and more of a warrior queen and I can’t wait to read she kicks butt. Also, is it bad I kind of hope Oliver dies? I mean once again he is showing what a coward he is.
Logan is so the man for her and I am glad to see where their story is headed. But if he dies in the next book I will not forgive the authors.
