"A fast moving, engaging tale in what promises to be an epic fantasy romance series," Kirkus Reviews.
The first time Chancery's twin sister tried to kill her was on their ninth birthday. In the intervening years, nothing improved. In fact, Judica stabbed her hand with a fork just this morning so she could take the last pancake.
Then Judica threw it to her dog.
But Chancery has a secret.
She's been watching their people's finest warrior for years while she was supposed to be studying. He's gorgeous, powerful, and a genius in all military applications—flawless in every way. Chancery thinks he may like her, too.
But he's supposed to marry her evil twin, because their mother chose Judica as her heir, the future empress of one-sixth of the earth.
Chancery, sick of all the drama, decides to run away from court to live among the humans, but the day before she's supposed to leave, she's helping her prepare for a ball. She tries on her mother's royal ring and the staridium stone reacts to her. She inadvertently fulfills an ancient prophecy of the woman who will unite the six families and save the entire world.
There's no way her mother's going to let her leave now, and things just became much more complicated.
It was okay.
I like Chancerys character but she also gets on my nerves a lot. She makes decisions based on what she wants instead of what’s in the best interest of her people. In a lot of ways she’s no different than her sister she’s just nicer about it. ..I’m all for love triangles but I think Noahs personality threw off the whole book it was like a jester popping out in the middle of a graceful ballet. I did enjoy the storyline though.
Absolutely adored this book. I loved all the twists and turns the story took but it all made sense. Can’t wait to get the chance to read the rest of the series someday! I have a suspicion on who killed their mother and I’m dying to find out who it is! Absolutely 100% recommend this book. I’d been trying to find a good book that wasn’t 100 something pages and stumbled across this book. It peaked my interest and because of the length, I decided that it might take me a bit so why not go ahead and read it. Finished it within like a week and that’s with school and everything else around me.
Love beyond words
Words cannot explain how lovely this book was!
