I cannot ask more from this book. It was really a wonderful read, and I enjoyed every sentence of it. I’m amazed with the author’s skill in bringing the readers into the world full of magic, love, frustration and betrayal. Reading this book is like riding a roller coaster. A highly intense and emotional read at times, but not overdone. It gives hope to those who have none, and it taught one to perserve at all times, no matter how tough things get. I love the heroine. She’s something to be admired. And I like her guts for doing what she taught is right despite of people’s opinion on her.

Absolutely thrilling and I highly reccommend this book to everyone who enjoys a tasteful YA read.

I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I received an ARC of this book from Harlequin via Netgalley. I was not compensated in any ways for writing this.

Book description:

Only I saw Narian for who he truly was: a young man with courage and an independent mind, and made to pay for what was outside his control. He couldn’t help his past any more than he could help the way those intense, deep-blue eyes pierced me and held me captive.

An eighteen-year-old queen in love with the enemy as their countries pass the point of no return…

Bound to a man she cannot love, Queen Alera of Hytanica must forget Narian, the young man who holds her heart. For Narian is destined to conquer Hytanica at the behest of his master, the powerful magic-user known as the Overlord. Alera doesn’t truly believe Narian will fight against Hytanica-until Cokyrian troops attack with Narian commanding the charge.

Faced with the greatest betrayal a heart can know, Alera must set aside personal feelings and lead her kingdom through its darkest time. And when all hope, will and courage seem lost, she must find strength and remember that even the blackest night must have a dawn
