Goodreads Synopsis: In Illaria, there is a fate worse than death.
As long as I can remember, I’ve been taught to fear the Necromancer King. He controls the kingdom of Illaria with dark sorcery and the constant threat of his undead army. I never thought I’d have reason to cross his path. Everything changed the day his guards tried to kill me. That’s when I found out my whole life has been a lie. By joining a resistance group called the White Ravens, I’ve claimed new roles. Princess of Illaria, sorceress in training, and threat to the Necromancer King.
My Thoughts: I received an arc copy of these via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I knew within the first two pages that this book was going to be bad. The writing wasn’t that great but that is something that I can over look if the story itself is good and the characters are good. The pacing of this was horrible. In the first chapter the main character is taken away into this resistance and goes without any questions or concerns. She’s told she is this lost princess and she just accepts it like it’ no big deal. She doesn’t question a single thing she is being told. And within the first few chapters she is swept into and being groomed for this new role. It was totally unrealistic. I made it about 20% into this before I decided to DNF it. I just couldn’t take the pacing or the characters. I feel like everything just happened way too easily. While I didn’t like this, that doesn’t mean that you won’t like it. So if you are interested in this give it a shot, you may like it. It just wasn’t for me.
