Publisher's Summary

A would-be queen. A handsome young king. A perfect match...or is it?

From the number-one New York Times best-selling author of the Selection series comes The Betrothed, a glittering royal romance sure to captivate her legion of loyal fans and lovers of courtly intrigue alike.

When King Jameson declares his love for Lady Hollis Brite, Hollis is shocked - and thrilled. After all, she's grown up at Keresken Castle, vying for the king's attention alongside other daughters of the nobility. Capturing his heart is a dream come true. 

But Hollis soon realizes that falling in love with a king and being crowned queen may not be the happily ever after she thought it would be. And when she meets a commoner with the mysterious power to see right into her heart, she finds that the future she really wants is one that she never thought to imagine.

Nouvelle direction... Mauvaise direction

Début du livre assez brusque. J'avais l'impression de commencer l'histoire à la moitié du roman ou au deuxième tome. Manque de descriptions sur l'apparence et la personnalité des personnage. Il m'a été difficile de m'attacher à ceux-ci. On s'attend du livre à être un roman en parallèle à l'univers de la Sélection (futuriste), mais il semblerait que l'histoire se passe dans le passé dans un pays fictif. Encore une fois le manque d'introduction nous laisse dans le vague à ce sujet. Je n'avais pas l'impression de lire di Kiera Cass.

Le seul côté positif de ce livre est la narration qui est très bien exécuté, même si les tons de voix des personnages auraient pus être plus varier. Parfois j'étais confuse de qui entre les personnages parlaient.

Captivating

Like most books I read the start was a bit slow but once I got into it I quite enjoyed it. I thought it was romantic but the end did make me sad.

Plot twists a plenty

SPOILERS********



This is not a happy ending. If you want a happy ending where the girl and the guy fall in love and live happy ever after don’t read this book. Check out The Selection instead.

The fact that I get to the end just to have the rug pulled out from under my feet in the last few chapters shows just how well written this book it.

Loved it

This book was an excellent read (listen). Though a little predictable, I highly reccomend it for fans of The Selection
