"Without a doubt my favorite series ever!" - Book Review
Who's the fairest of them all?
Young women from every settlement in the land are being handpicked to enter The Pageant, a contest reminiscent of Miss Universe from the old days. Gwyneth West's social-climbing mother wants her to compete, but Gwyn isn't so sure...
The Pageant is government-sponsored. If you're lucky enough to be chosen, participation is mandatory. Aggressive competition is allowed, even encouraged.
And then there's the prize...
Dallas Black, otherwise known as The Dark Prince, will propose to the winner. Dallas is the son of King Black, who won the last world war and governs the new settlements.
The Royal Family is mysterious. Rumor has it they don't sleep. Rumor has it they eschew the sun. Rumor has it they're immortal.
When Gwyn is thrust into The Pageant, she fights to survive the competitive nature of the other contestants.
But even if she wins...can she survive a vampire fiancé?

This is the best book I’ve read in a LONG time. Though I despise Gwenyth’s decreasing intelligence, it kept me going all night till I finished it.
Boring and Predictable
This book screams mediocre and I’m not saying this to be mean. The story is like every other vampire monarchy storyline out there. This would not be a problem if there was some sort of originality or twist to the story. I like storylines like this but you get tired of reading the same thing over and over again. There was no newness or freshness just same old. It left me feeling bored and wanting more but not curious enough to wonder about the next book in the series.
From a seasoned reader’s point of view, I would advise that the writer do more in depth research on the genre they are writing and then come up with ideas that make it original. I picked this up because it looked interesting but unfortunately it fell short of my expectations.
