   I noticed his eyes. They were blue, sharp and intense.
                                    Despite the youthful glow of his suntanned face, his eyes were
                                    cold and unfriendly, suggesting he had great experience in the
                                                   world and was now expecting the worst.

In her seventeenth year, Princess Alera of Hytanica faces one duty: to marry the man who will be king. But her father’s choice of suitor fills her with despair.
When the palace guard captures an intruder—a boy her age with steel-blue eyes, hailing from her kingdom’s greatest enemy—Alera is alarmed…and intrigued. But she could not have guessed that their clandestine meetings would unveil the dark legacy shadowing both their lands. 

In this mystical world of court conspiracies and blood magic, loyalties will be tested. Courage won’t be enough. And as the battle begins for everything Alera holds dear, love may be the downfall of a kingdom.

 First Thoughts: I love YA books and when I was searching, this book just sounded interesting to me. So I request and read it :)

Cover: Eh, it's isn't the best cover, but it still good. It shows Alera as the princess and that about it. I don't adore the cover, it just normal to me.

Setting: I love that it like one of those kingdom setting with princesses and kings and suitors. I am a sucker for settings like this one. It's in past tense obviously, but it is quite ungiue, because it is not all about historic romance fiction at all, not taking place in  any histortic places, just imagination mostly.

Characters: I like the name, Alera, she had a great voice, but she mean me want to punch her like in the first few pages, but it's cool now. I LOVE Narian! He's mysterious, cold, but he have a light side if you get to know it, he is totally handsome and I fell for him right from the beginning when I first say him. And I HATE Steldor >:(!!!, he is just like a older annoying, too handsome rich brat. All of the characters are solid most of the time, but sometimes they are like not..

Plot: I love the plot and everything about this book except Steldor, ugh. I love the rivalry between the two kingdom. One kingdom the males are the rulers an warrior, which is Alera's father's kingdom and the other is the exact opposite.
  Recommends: Everyone in the world who loves this type of book: fiction and a little historic fiction and don't forget the hopeless romance people out there!

Rate: ★ 5/5 Stars
