Summary from Goodreads: A stolen crown. An unbreakable friendship. One big mess in the making.
When Princess Cecily Degalt travels south to wed a prince she's never met, she's ushered into a strange new world alongside her best friend and bodyguard, Rory Castille. With an MIA fiancé, his handsome twin brother, and a kidnapping gone wrong, life in Myrzel isn't quite what Cecily expected.
Rory will do anything to keep Cecily from harm--but when Rory's darkest secret comes between her and Cecily, the greatest danger to the princess might be Rory herself.
Torn apart for the first time, each girl will have to think like the other as she faces not only the darkness of Fangralee Forest, but a dangerous enemy closer to home.
Review: Although I haven't read the first book in this series, this didn't matter. Kelsey Keating brings you into a world where magic normal and princesses are sent to another kingdom to marry a prince they have never met.
I was really intrigued by Rory and her super strength and and fighting skills. She was one bad ass chick. The princess was cool too. She was snarky and witty. I was really drawn to Tom from the beginning and rooted for Rory to fall for him.
The ending was a little confusing for me, with all the sudden killing and battles. I found that if I wasn't paying close enough attention, someone else died and it snuck up on me.
I can't wait to see what else Ms. Keating will put on paper. Three stars for A Stolen Crown.
