At 19, she's heir to the throne, leader of her very own kingdom. Awesome, right? Wrong, it couldn't be further from awesome.
Her mother is dead, her father, well, he's not even in the picture and the kingdom she's inheriting is essentially District 12 and the Dreadfort from Game Thrones thrown into a blender.
Still, she's the chosen one and she's got a job to do. The problem is, nobody expects her to survive a day on the throne. Her uncle is still technically in power, there's a sorcerer / Queen / complete nutcase over the hills making everyone's life miserable through means that I won't spoil but I assure you it will never leave your brains ever.
Yes, things are stacked up against Kelsea. Yet, the one thing she does have is loyal gaurds. Guards that would die for her if need be. And they just might have to.
I loved this book. I know I'm late to the game and that absolutely everyone compares this thing to Hunger Games and Game of Thrones but I simply couldn't help it either, maybe I'm a hack reviewer.
That said, once this books sinks its teeth into you it will be hard to turn away. You will really become invested in these characters and the seemingly insurmountable odds they have to face. I will certainly be getting the second book in the series soon!
I recommend this to ages 16 and up!
