Synopsis: One woman will take back her freedom. And rise.
Violetta will never forget that day. Guilt shadows her every step as she prepares to take her father’s throne. Sadly, he has other ideas. Violetta must marry or forfeit her royal birthright, but all she wants is to be free, to no longer relive the tragic events of her past. If only she can learn to love again, to put the past behind her and begin anew.
Enter Emperor Ryore Frost. Handsome. Suave. And her sworn enemy. As Violetta feels new emotions stirring within, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to this mysterious man. Could she risk marrying her mortal enemy if it meant a chance at securing her freedom?
Four Magical Realms.
One troubled Princess.
One love-starved Emperor.
And a trio of assassins, lying in wait.
Review: I really liked what this book could have been but for me I just couldn’t get into it. The book has promise and a lot of people seem to like it, it has an amazing premise and setting, but the exposition was messy and I just couldn’t get into it. I had to DNF at about 100 pages in.
Verdict: DNF but a lot of people seem to like it so maybe it’s my cold that’s making this a difficult read.
