I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Do you like werewolves? Or evil guys getting a chance at redemption? Paranormal creatures? Crazy king? If it’s yes to all of that, then this book is totally for you. Ashley, well, she was a normal teenage girl, wanting all the things normal girls want; boys, dates, kisses. Until her life actually unravels before her very eyes when she realise that she was actually a princess. And no, it’s not as happy as it sounds. Because she has a crazy father who was hell bent on having her killed, so that he could hold on to the throne. Interested? You should be!
I totally judged the book by its cover (since it was so cartoonish, so I am so very sorry) and started off the book badly. But a few pages in and I was totally enraptured. Ashley had her faults, and that was what made her unique. She was headstrong at quite a young age, and I adored her character. And then there was the werewolf. I had to admit that I hated him at first HAHAHA. But that was expected, wasn’t it? Sometimes having a chance at redemption for bad guys are way cooler than typical heroes.
THAT ENDING THOUGH. In a good way. There has to be a second book, right?! There has to…..
