I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I was excited about reading this story, but the more I read the more I disliked it. The lead character was a confused teenager that never learned anything on her way to becoming queen. This story had a lot of romance, which is not my cup of tea. I probably could have finished this book, if it weren't so horribly written. It is in dire need of editing. There were words where words shouldn't be, and words missing, or words repeated. The more I read the worse the writing became. The only recommendation that I can make is that people who enjoy romance might like this book.
