this is a review of..
Monarch by A.R. Ivanovich
Book 3 of War of the Princes series
Release Date: January 5th, 2016
ARC source: NetGalley
Rune Thayer’s rebellion in Cape Hill has placed all of Breakwater in danger. Now, Katelyn Kestrel and her best friend Kyle must do something that no one in the Western Kingdom has ever attempted: travel North into enemy territory and request aid from none other than Prince Varion himself.
Before they are able to depart, Katelyn is unwillingly brought face-to-face with Prince Raserion. Separated from her friends and enveloped in a dark world of his making, the indomitable Prince of Shadows offers her a deal that she dare not refuse. The accord is struck and Katelyn continues her mission, holding close the secret meeting, and wondering whether she has become a traitor to her own cause. Stalked by unrelenting shadows across enemy lines, she must decide: Trust Prince Varion in hopes to save Breakwater- or trust Prince Raserion to win Rune’s freedom.
I actually read the book last month however I forgot to post the review here..
Kate, Kyle, Dylan and Rune go on another adventure to the North lands where they must find Varion and ask him to send armies to protect Breakwater and Haven from Raserion’s attack. This journey is sure to bring them so many unexpected secrets and revelations.
I actually like this more than the previous ones mainly because Katelyn wasn’t the main focus and other characters had their time to grow, especially Kyle. Like the previous two books, the twists and turns were so unexpected and I did not see them coming at all. I also liked them very much. Once I said oh that’s it then, it turns out it was something new entirely.
I’m expecting the last book to be about Rune and the final battle. So, I’m excited for it..
