I noticed his eyes. They were blue, sharp and intense. Despite the youthful glows of his suntanned face, his eyes were cold and unfriendly, suggesting he had great experience in the world and was now expecting the worst.
In her seventeenth year, Princess Alera of Hytanica faces one duty: to marry the man who will be king. But her father's choice of suitor fills her with despair.

When the palace guard captures and intruder—a boy her age with steel-blue eyes, hailing from her kingdom's greatest enemy—Alera is alarmed…and intrigued. But she could not have guessed that their clandestine meetings would unveil the dark legacy shadowing both their lands.

In this mystical world of court conspiracies and blood magic, loyalties will be tested. Courage won't be enough. And as the battle begins for everything Alera holds dear, love may be the downfall of a kingdom.
 This book was fantastic.

I'll admit, it was a slow read. It's a big book. It happens. But there was always some kind of action that would pick it back up before it got TOO slow.

The romance was entertaining. I actually did enjoy this love triangle. I'm not sure it's really a triangle, but it's closer than most things called love triangles, so let's go with it.

I really liked the characters. Alera and her brother and the boys were all wonderfully done. I hated who I should've hated and liked who I should've liked and rooted for certain characters.

It was very well written. I was worried because it was self published first and I am biased like that, but it was really good and kept me engaged.

This was just a really good fantasy book. There's not as much fantasy in YA like this, so it's refreshing to read it when it's there.

Just a really amazing book and I'm excited for the sequel.
