Book review: The Betrothed by Kiera Cass

Book Summary
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.

Flo's Review
Ack, this is so hard! So much of what I want to say is straight spoilery! I'm going to need you all to read this as soon as it comes out so we can go ahead and dish about certain characters, and also about predictions for the next book or two. (I'm not sure if this will be a trilogy or duology?)

So let's see what I can say...

I stayed up past my bedtime to finish this. Once I hit a certain plot turn, I had to keep going. Like, I couldn't put the book down and just go to bed. Also, the action picked up and everything happened pretty fast so I was just flip, flip, flipping the pages.

It was comfortingly Kiera Cass. Kiera Cass is basically royalty in her own right. You know what type of book and story your'e going to be getting when you open one of her books and that's why you love her. This one did not disappoint. I expected a certain type of story, of read, and it was comfortingly what I got. Her stories are like that old, worn blanket you haven't used in a few months, but then you pull it back over you and go, "Ahhh....yes....this is nice."

America and Hollis aren't exactly alike, but...they'd be good friends. They'd definitely understand each other.

Cover love. I mean, seriously. Have you seen it? It's literally all gold and shiny!

The Betrothed publishes May 5th from HarperTeen.
