Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author of The Selection series Kiera Cass is back with her most epic novel yet—a sweeping enemies-to-lovers standalone romance.

“Love has a sound. It sounds like a thousand heartbeats happening at the same time.”

Princess Annika has lived a life of comfort—but no amount of luxuries can change the fact that her life isn’t her own to control. The king, once her loving father, has gone cold, and Annika will soon be forced into a loveless marriage for political gain.

Miles away, small comforts are few and far between for Lennox. He has devoted his life to the Dahrainian army, hoping to one day help them reclaim the throne that was stolen from them. For Lennox, the idea of love is merely a distraction—nothing will stand in the way of fighting for his people.

But when love, against all odds, finds them both, they are bound by its call. They can’t possibly be together—but the irresistible thrum of a thousand heartbeats won’t let them stay apart.

Kiera Cass brings her signature sparkling romance to this beautiful story of star-crossed lovers and long-held secrets.

I loved this book

This book was by far my favourite book Kiera Cass has written. It has romance and action, this book was so amazing and so we’re the voices of the characters, the voices fit the characters so well.

It was slow

I liked the overall story but i didn’t really like the slow burn as I prefer romance books and it took forever to get to the romance. However I do really like this author and looovvve her other books.

Pretty good

I thought this book was one of Cass’ better ones. I liked the character parallels and how each couple/character contributed to the definition of love in the book. It had a slightly higher level of literary sophistication than her other works in my opinion. I’ll probably listen to it again in a year or two.

I liked Annika. She’s poetic and thoughtful and a gentle friend and sister but a fierce enemy.

Certain parts - the early beginning and the end hour or two - I thought could have been faster, cut off sooner, or more interesting. The ending felt like the tidying of loose threads and was very predictable. But the middle was so good I missed so much sleep for it. The cave scene was so good, especially Lennox’ perspectives.

Performance wise - the guy was bad at girl voices and the girls was bad at boy voices. It was pretty painful actually, but I got used to it after a while.

Holy crappppp

This book is one of the best books I’ve ever read! The romance, the action, the heartbreak, it was all flawlessly perfect. Out of all of Kiera’s books, this has to be her best one! What I would give to hear this for the first time again! This book stirred up emotions from deep inside of my heart. 100% a ten out of ten book!

Another Great Book By Kiera Cass

I loved the Selection Series so when I saw that Kiera Cass I couldn't wait to listen to it. A battle between good and bad. Duty, love and hope for better days all tied up in a love story.
