I was so happy to find out more about the Royal couple and got really excited with this one. I loved it, but I got a feeling that I will not like Princess Eadlyn too much. She was a self-entitled young lady. She is at age of being married, because her parents changed the law and now the first born can inherit, no matter that she is a girl or a boy.
She is convinced to have a selection of her own, since it will give her a set of values, as per her mother’s words. She finally agrees and the process starts again. What is different this time is that there are no casts, her parents changed the society ranks, and all boys of age can apply to become the future queen’s consorts.
“You can be brave and still be feminine. You can lead and still love flowers. Most importantly, you can be queen and still be a bride.”
I enjoyed her growing character and how she develops in the process. It made me like her more and more.
“I’m not sure anyone knows what they’re looking for until they find it.”
Here is the reading order of the series.
