Reid has spent her whole life pretending to be a man so she can inherit her father’s estate, but when a chance encounter threatens to expose her lie, she is forced to risk everything.
In the kingdom of Marsden, women are subservient to men and land can only pass from father to son. So when Reid Ellington is born, the fifth daughter to one of the wealthiest landholders in the kingdom, it’s announced that Reid is a boy.
Eighteen years later, Reid struggles to conceal the fact she’s actually a young woman. Every day, her secret becomes harder to keep. When one of Marsden’s princes sees her sparring with a sword, she is forced to accept his offer and lead her father’s soldiers to the border. Along the way, she discovers a covert organization within the army known as the Knights of the Realm. If Reid wants to save her family from being arrested for treason and robbed of their inheritance, she will have to join the Knights and become a weapon for the crown.
To protect her family, Reid must fight like a man. To do that, she’ll need the courage of a woman.
Silly, mysterious, and SUSPENSE!!!!
Haha it’s overall a decent read and I will definitely be continuing the series.
Tbh not realistic at all but whatever it’s just a book…well kinda, the mc doesn’t have much experience but suddenly she’s good at almost
Knights of the Realm
Assume page turner
Very well written
I read the reviews prior to downloading this book and went into it expecting the book to be poorly written or not well thought out. That, however, was a terrible assumption.
This book is very well written. The characters and world are very well developed and remain consistent throughout. Although this story may be classified as YA, the writing isn’t dumbed down or immature in any sense. There certainly is a strong morality possessed by the main character, but this clear sense of right and wrong is the only true YA push you feel throughout the book.
I very rarely purchase sequels, but I have every intention of finishing this series! The author did a fantastic job and I can’t wait to see how this ends!
