About the Book
A plague. A prophecy. A centuries-long curse.
All her life, Princess Adalina heard tales of the legendary, immortal warriors known as the Nihryst. Cursed and bound to a deck of tarot cards by her ancestors, the Nihryst were stranded on a remote island nearly a century and a half earlier.
Her brother, Prince Shane, is destined to rule the kingdom of Detmarya. Though preparing for this role has encompassed his entire life, control of the kingdom may come sooner than expected due to their father’s sporadic behavior.
Discovering the king’s plan to set a war in motion with a mass assassination, Ada unwittingly joins a crew of pirates in search of the only beings powerful enough to stop him: the Nihryst. Meanwhile, Shane and a group of underground rebels make a haunting discovery of a plague infecting the streets of Detmarya.
With a looming deadline to save multiple kingdoms and thousands of innocent lives, both royal siblings join quests worthy of Ada’s beloved fairy tales.
This was a phenomenal read that was enough to keep me going until I had finished it in one day. The author does a great job of explaining and helping you visualize their world. You can close your eyes and really see what each character is going through as well as what they are seeing in the world. The extra bonus is the fact that it has a basis that mirrors part of Tangled. Which is one of my favorite movies.
I enjoyed the plot and am eager to see where the next book will take us.
If you like Tangled, fairy tales, and strong female characters this is a book for you.
