***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
For a short but violent time monsters plagued the Western Lands, targeting and killing those in power. No one survived the attacks, and when the monsters left they took their secrets with them. Gwenmere’s mother was one of their victims. And perhaps that is why she rejects the ostentatious lifestyle of her caste: the luxurious living accommodations, the outrageously exquisite clothes, the sumptuous and delectable meals, the flamboyant parties. Well, in truth she does enjoy the meals quite a bit.
But the monsters have returned. Gwenmere finally has the chance to discover what they are and why they killed her mother. The only problem is… how does she go about uncovering the truth? As she plots and schemes, so does her father. The intimidating new Captain of the Royal Guard watches her every move. And it seems she will be sent to the distant lands of her spineless fiancé far in advance of their wretched wedding day. Is it all for her own good, to keep her safe—or is she being deceived?
This was a funny read. I really loved the dry wit and Glenmere cracks me up. Her relationship with her family is hilarious. Glenmere doesn’t fit the bill of how you would think of a Royal. She loves adventure and most especially food. There were some parts that hadme laughing out loud. The sibling rivalry was especially humorous
If you want a fantasy read with lost of wit, humor and adventure, pick this book up. You won’t regret it! The story flows so well and that is very important.
