Jennifer Anne Davis's best-selling True Reign series captivated readers from the very first page. Now, get ready to become entangled in the follow-up series, Reign of Secrets. In this new series, follow Allyssa, the daughter of the beloved Emperor Darmik and Empress Rema— and find out what happens after happily ever after.
Seventeen-year-old Allyssa appears to be the ideal princess of Emperion—she’s beautiful, elegant, and refined. She spends her days locked in a suffocating cage, otherwise known as royal court. But at night, Allyssa uses her secret persona—that of a vigilante—to hunt down criminals and help her people firsthand.
Unfortunately, her nightly escapades will have to wait because the citizens of Emperion may need saving from something much bigger than common criminals. War is encroaching on their country and in order to protect her people, Allyssa may have to sacrifice her heart. Forced to entertain an alliance through marriage with a handsome prince from a neighboring kingdom, she finds herself feeling even more stifled than before. To make matters worse, the prince has stuck his nosy squire, Jarvik, to watch her every move.
Jarvik is infuriating, bossy and unfortunately, the only person she can turn to when she unveils a heinous plot. Together, the unlikely pair will have to work together to stop an enemy that everyone thought was long gone, one with the power to destroy her family and the people of Emperion. Now the cage Allyssa so longed to break free from might just be the one thing she has to fight to keep intact. In order to save her kingdom, she will have to sacrifice her freedom, her heart, and maybe even her life.
My Review: This spin off series just blew my mind! Allyssa is just amazing. She is a lovely princess who has it all. However, being in the court all day, isn't her thing. So she escapes at night to become a vigilante. Helping her people in a different way. But its great to see her as a princess and a vigilante. It shows just how much she cares.
Suddenly things aren't going to be same anymore. Looks like she may have to work on making an alliance. War is on the way and she needs to find ways of keeping her people safe and finding a way to prevent war. So a plan is made and must be carried out....
Yup, just amazing. This book is going on my favorites list of the year and the author is now an auto buy author. Don't you just love it when that happens? The book is fast paced. The details are amazing and on point. A book worth getting sucked into!
