Genre: Fantasy, Fairy Tale
Chosen of the Moon Goddess. Destined to rule. Fated to marry.
A quest to save her family, kingdom, and heart.
For the past five years Princess Eira has run from her impending wedding. As much as she loves her goddess and kingdom, she’s searched the kingdoms for another way to rule as queen someday while also choosing her own husband.
Yet, Eira’s claim to the crown falls into jeopardy when her father, King Brennus, is poisoned and fated to a sleep of living death and Eira is next on the assassin’s hit list – who happens to be her stepmother, Queen Amelia.
After Eira escapes Queen Amelia’s clutches she journeys to the northern Paravian mountains in search of an enchanted cup to save her father.
Her quest is more than she anticipated with evading Queen Amelia’s guards, traveling with the one man she shouldn’t be with, and having to bargain with the ancient dragon guarding the enchanted cup.
She’ll have to decide how to save her family and kingdom, even if it means sacrificing her heart and all she’s wanted her whole life.
If you like Sarah J Maas, Jennifer Estep, and Maxym Martineau, then you’ll love this adult fantastical retelling of the classic Snow White fairy tale.
This was a fabulous read! I was hooked right from the beginning. The story takes off and there’s so much going on! Action and adventure. A bit of romance and a whole lot of magic! I loved the twist on a classic. Can we talk about the cover for a second? It’s so beautiful and fits the story perfectly. The author’s storytelling is quite enjoyable. The story is well written. Great world building and wonderful characters. This is easily one of my favorite reads of 2020.
If you enjoy reading fantasy and adventure, this book is for you! Once you start, it’ll be hard to put down. I highly anticipate what’s next from Miss Hornburg. I give this 5 stars.
