Genre(s): young adult, fantasy, magic, romance, action, adventure, mystery, epic. 

Freya was never meant to be queen. Twenty-third in line to the throne, she never dreamed of a life in the palace, and would much rather research in her laboratory than participate in the intrigues of the court. However, when an extravagant banquet turns deadly and the king and those closest to him are poisoned, Freya suddenly finds herself on the throne.

She may have escaped the massacre, but she is far from safe. The nobles don’t respect her, her councillors want to control her, and with the mystery of who killed the king still unsolved, she knows that a single mistake could cost her the kingdom—and her life.

Freya is determined to survive, and that means uncovering the murderers herself. Until then, she can’t trust anyone. Not her advisers. Not the king’s dashing and enigmatic illegitimate son. Not even her own father, who always wanted the best for her but also wanted more power for himself.

As Freya’s enemies close in and her loyalties are tested, she must decide if she is ready to rule and, if so, how far she is willing to go to keep the crown.


Why I'm excited for this book:

I love high fantasy books with political intrigue, and this book looks like it will be rife with it. I, looking forward to fidgeting out who killed the court, and how a girl who doesn't even want the position will handle being Queen. Freya seems like a smart character and a lot like me so I think I will really connect with her and I can't wait to see her take control of everything and make all obey her. I am also anticipating seeing the romance between the Queen and the previous King's illegitimate son. Looks like the makings of a perfect high fantasy novel to me!
