As Queen of the island kingdom of Calanthe, Euthalia will do anything to keep her people free—and her secrets safe—from the mad tyrant who rules the mainland. Guided by a magic ring of her father’s, Lia plays the political game with the cronies the emperor sends to her island. In her heart, she knows that it’s up to her to save herself from her fate as the emperor’s bride. But in her dreams, she sees a man, one with the power to build a better world—a man whose spirit is as strong, and whose passion is as fierce as her own…
So, this book has got me tricked. Feeling I started a fantasy story it’s more of a romance… not my thing. Slow-paced with a dragging story, heavily depending on describing wardrobes and make-up. The fantasy part is completely overlooked and overshadowed by the romance story.
Removed it from my reader after a half-hour reading… say enough right?
