Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.

In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol’s father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman…and bring her Lorelai’s heart.

But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.

I received this book for free from the publisher or author in exchange for an honest review.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

5 Stars
Why should you read this book?
  1. Another awesome kickass heroine!
    Yes yes, Lorelai is another heroine that can join the ranks of Celaena, Yukiko, Cinder & others. She’s a badass alright.
  2. Fantastic writing
    The writing is truly fantastic. The world-building is amazing and there were no boring info-dumps at all. Everything was perfect.
  3. It’s a great and awesome retelling of Snow White
    I love retellings and this is, I think, my first one of Snow White. I really loved the way the author gave her own spin of a familiar story.
  4. Great characters + great romance
    Yes, all the characters were great and I loved them all and the romance was so gooooooood. But that twist around the 40% point… ghaaaahhh!! My heart! The feels!


Yes, it is. Go read it! Now! As soon as you possibly can!
