Paranormal, Romance, Young Adult

Eighteen-year-old Angeline Robart’s father the King of Altera is on his deathbed which has turned the eyes of the kingdom on her.  While studying she is called home to be at her father’s side but on the way she is kidnapped by Connor.  He is a mysterious rogue who has waited a very long to time to change his destiny. 

Now Angeline is facing the consequences of a freak accident that Connor was unable to stop.  She is being forced to travel a dangerous path to regain control of both her future and her kingdom.  The choice which seems impossible forces her to rely on Connor who is everything that her family has done everything possible to destroy. 

Angeline is the last of the Robart bloodline, and she has discovered enemies that she has always believed had been conquered but she now finds out they have only been lying in wait for the time when her father is gone.  By uncovering the secrets Angeline discovers even worse is that no one expected her to take the throne in anything but title alone. 

Angeline now has a bond with Connor that is growing stronger all the time.  She also realizes that they have a lot more in common than she ever thought possible.  It also could very well make him an ally that she needs now more than ever.

This is a young adult story that is very interesting.  The world building comes alive with every word as it paints a picture of a different time and place.  With every secret that is uncovered the story gets more intense and the plot even more compelling.  This story has mystery, action and romance and while it does end with a cliff hanger it is sure to leave the reader desperately wanting to read the next book in the trilogy.  If the other two books continue to be a engrossing as the first this will prove to be a very interesting trilogy that hopefully has an ending that is good as the start of the series. 

I give this one 4 red roses
