Summary:

Would you choose to save your kingdom or follow your heart

Brave and kindhearted, Arianna is a princess of a kingdom that nobody wants. The magicless. Marrying the charming, flirtatious, and egotistical Prince Roland was the last thing either of them wanted, but for the sake of their people they agreed. War breaks out with the neighboring kingdom, forcing the prince’s hand to join in the fight. He leaves his new wife with the only man he trusts, his childhood friend, a dutiful, strong, and handsome knight.

A sweet romantic tale of forbidden love in a dark fanatical world.





REVIEW:
4 stars

I really enjoyed this story. Every now and then, I want to read a good romance that is forbidden, and this one was just perfect for what I wanted. I thought it was an interesting story that you don't typically see in YA books. I also just want to point out that the cover is gorgeous!

I really liked Arianna, Roland, and Conrad. I loved the storyline - it was very well-written, and I thought the world building was amazing. The one issue I had with the book was the pacing of the story. There were times I felt like the pacing was slow, and there were times were I thought it was perfect. And then at the end, I felt like it was super rushed.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story. I would highly recommend it to readers who love fantasy. I thought it was a quick read that really hooks you.
About the Author

I've been writing half of my life, starting at the ripe old age of 13. Back then my favorite pass time was doodling in class, sleeping in class, and studying tests or homework that was due the next class period. But by night I lead a secret life. I would go home, turn on my computer, and get on my dialup Internet (which makes me sound really old) and I would write. At first it was for fun. I was brave back then and posted everything online. In the 14 years I have been writing, I have posted over 1.5 million words, all of which is still available to read for free. My most well known story being "Fun 'N' Games at Ouran". A year or so ago I posted a one-shot that was 50k-60k in words. Afterwards, I looked at it laughing, and said to myself "I think I would like to get paid for this now" and then 'To Betray My King' was born. It seems so simple as I'm sitting here, typing this for you to read, but it's the truth. 'Betray' is my first book, but it won't be my last. I love writing. I would never give it up for anything in the world.
