Title: Kiss of the Royal
By: Lindsey Duga
Release Date: July 3rd, 2018
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Summary from Goodreads: In the war against the Forces of Darkness, the Royals are losing. Princess Ivy is determined to end this centuries-long conflict once and for all, so her new battle partner must succeed where the others failed. Prince Zach’s unparalleled skill with a sword, enhanced by Ivy’s magic Kiss, should make them an unstoppable pair—but try convincing Zach of that.
Prince Zach has spent his life preparing for battle, but he would rather be branded a heretic than use his lips as nothing more than a way to transfer magic. A kiss is a symbol of love, and love is the most powerful weapon they have—but try convincing Ivy of that.
With the fate of their world on the line, the battlefield has become a testing ground, and only one of them can be right. Falling for each other wasn’t part of the plan—but try convincing their hearts of that.
Review: I have mixed feelings about this book. In one hand, I loved the story and how it pans out. On the other hand, the world building was lacking and I was left wanting more. Even without knowing much about the world I was diving into, I finished this book in one day. Its a nice read, that keeps you busy from cover to cover.
Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
