Review: Protect the Prince by Jennifer Estep

Protect the Prince by Jennifer Estep
Crown of Shards #2

First, Evie has to deal with a court full of arrogant, demanding nobles, all of whom want to get their greedy hands on her crown. As if that wasn’t bad enough, an assassin tries to kill Evie in her own throne room.

Despite the dangers, Evie goes ahead with a scheduled trip to the neighboring kingdom of Andvari in order to secure a desperately needed alliance. But complicating matters is the stubborn Andvarian king, who wants to punish Evie for the deaths of his countrymen during the Seven Spire massacre.

But dark forces are at work inside the Andvarian palace, and Evie soon realizes that no one is safe. Worse, Evie’s immunity to magic starts acting in strange, unexpected ways, which makes her wonder whether she is truly strong enough to be a Winter Queen.

But Evie’s magic, life, and crown aren’t the only things in danger—so is her heart, thanks to Lucas Sullivan, the Andvarian king’s bastard son and Evie’s . . . well, Evie isn’t quite sure what Sullivan is to her.

Only one thing is certain—protecting a prince might be even harder than killing a queen…

I really enjoyed Kill the Queen, but PROTECT THE PRINCE was even better! I am utterly in love with this series, I just can't get enough. The characters, world, and plot are all incredible. Everleigh in particular really stole my heart this time around. There have been so many challenges thrown at her, and while she questions whether she's enough at times, she never once falters or lets anyone stand in her way of doing what is best for her people. She is truly an admirable up and coming queen and I am delighted to get to see her grow. Each new twist and turn in the story only served as something new for her to overcome, and a new facet of her character. I simply loved it.

When I finished this book I had a strong urge to go back and read book 1 again just to stay in this world longer. To say that I'm dying to get my hands on the next book is an understatement. If you are looking for a phenomenal read full of twists and turns that you can lose yourself in, look no further than the Crown of Shards series!
