For fans of The Selection and fantasy books, here’s one you should put on your to-read list! With two storylines, blackmail, and romance in a world on the brink of war, Royal Decoy is sure to be a page-turner! This post will include my review, a giveaway, and exclusive pre-order gift!
About the book
A SERVANT blackmailed into becoming a princess’s decoy.
A BODYGUARD determined to keep her alive.
A PRINCE forced to execute his father’s brutal laws.
A PRISONER used to keep him compliant.
A WORLD on the brink of war.
In one horrible night, Clare goes from kitchen maid to royal decoy. She has three months to become the princess’s perfect double so she can ensure her betrothal to an enemy prince. Desperate to survive, Clare throws herself into self-defense training, taught by her distractingly attractive bodyguard. The danger increases when a ruthless assassin begins stalking her, intent on ending the tenuous peace.
Across the northern mountains, Prince Grayson is his father’s ultimate weapon. He carries out the king’s harsh orders because the one person he cares about is his father’s prisoner. Grayson’s silent obedience is tested when his father plans to exploit the marriage alliance between two of their greatest enemies. If Grayson submits, the blood of thousands will spill. If he resists, the girl who means everything to him will die.
The fate of Eyrinthia hangs in the balance. Some want peace. Some want war. All will be thrown into chaos.
About the Author
Heather Frost writes mostly YA fiction and has a soft spot for tortured characters, breath – stealing romance, and happy endings. She is the author of the Seers trilogy. She has a BS in Creative Writing and a minor in Folklore, which means she got to read fairy tales and ghost stories and call it homework. When she’s not writing, Heather likes to read, travel, and hold Lord of the Rings movie marathons. She owns two typewriters, sings in the car, and dreams of living in a castle someday. She currently lives in a beautiful valley surrounded by towering mountains in the wilds of Utah.
First of all, the plot of Royal Decoy was awesome! It’s definitely not those overused plots that you see all the time (to the point of being cliche). Although the book started off a little bit slow, it picked up quickly. It flips between two storylines, and I thought this was a great choice by the author, as it makes you really engaged. And there was a perfect balance, as I equally loved both storylines so I didn’t feel prone to skipping. Sometimes when books flip between two perspectives, I end up liking one more than the other and just skip chapters, but this was definitely not the case for this book.
The book cover and some of the scenes in this book seemed sort of reminiscent of The Selection series by Keira Cass, so if you liked that series, you’ll love this one. That said, it’s got it’s own twist and unique storyline so you’re not going to be reading a second “Selection” series. I hope, and definitely won’t be surprised if it hits the charts. 🙂
Overall, I loved the writing, and seriously can’t wait for the next book! Definitely put this on your to-read list.
