Series: Shielded #1
Author: Kaylynn Flanders
The kingdom of Hálendi is in trouble. It’s losing the war at its borders, and rumors of a new, deadlier threat on the horizon have surfaced. Princess Jennesara knows her skills on the battlefield would make her an asset and wants to help, but her father has other plans.
As the second-born heir to the throne, Jenna lacks the firstborn’s–her brother’s–magical abilities, so the king promises her hand in marriage to the prince of neighboring Turia in exchange for resources Hálendi needs. Jenna must leave behind everything she has ever known if she is to give her people a chance at peace.
Only, on the journey to reach her betrothed and new home, the royal caravan is ambushed, and Jenna realizes the rumors were wrong–the new threat is worse than anyone imagined. Now Jenna must decide if revealing a dangerous secret is worth the cost before it’s too late–for her and for her entire kingdom.
Firstly, I got a special edition of this book from Fairyloot and let me tell you, it smelled amazing! I spent a lot of time smelling this bad boy #weird.
Anyways….Halendi is in trouble and whilst her brother rides off to the front, Princess Jenna rides towards her betrothed, who she has never met, to seal a deal for troops. But she doesn’t get there without trouble. Hiding her identity, she carries on alone to get answers and bumps into 2 palace guards…
But everything isn’t as it seems….on both sides.
This book was so good! I fell in love with the story, the world, the characters….all of it!
I must say I am a sucker for romance when it’s done right….and this was done right! I had a little nervous bud in my belly when Jenna met Teren and that bloomed into a massive, beautiful flower!
But this story isn’t just about romance. It’s so much more and implore you to read it, read it now, what are you waiting for?
I need the next book and I need it now!!!
