Flame in the Palace
In Flame in the Palace, Myria grew up with her grandmother working in her inn/bar. When a cousin shows up and offers her a chance to become the future queen, she is thrown into a whole new life as a possible match for the prince of Avalion. Five noble women compete to marry the prince and become queen one day, and she is now one of them.
She meets new family members, and with their help, she proceeds to learn on the fly as she is thrown into one competition after another. But, as the only one who didn’t grow up with the lessons of nobility, she is at a loss. Or is she? Can Myria handle herself and keep up with the women who grew up with all the advantages of nobility?
Book-loving friends, this is one you need to grab as soon as possible. I don’t know if I have words to describe how incredible this book is.
The characters’ personalities stretch in many directions, all forces to be reckoned with in their own unique ways. The five noble women each have distinct personalities and beliefs. Each of their families comes into play as they each host the entire group. There are a couple of characters that irked me beyond belief. I was spitting fire when they did things that should’ve involved consequences but didn’t. There are also some mythical creatures making my imagination go into high drive.
Myria is the center of the story. She is witty and tenacious, speaking her mind and never backing. She pushes through the expected competitions and events so her grandmother is cared for. The prince has a special place in his heart for Myria but does she feel the same way. Myria is met with new challenges at each stop, yet she plunges forward, doing her best with her limited training.
The ending about knocked me off my chair. Talk about a cliffhanger; this book has a humdinger. I don’t know how I can possibly wait for the next book. But, I know I will get my hands on it as soon as possible.
