Summary of the Book:

Welcome to the world of Forgotten Empires from award winning author Jeffe Kennedy that begins with The Orchid Throne.


As Queen of the island kingdom of Calanthe, Euthalia will do anything to keep her people free—and her secrets safe—from the mad tyrant who rules the mainland. Guided by a magic ring of her father’s, Lia plays the political game with the cronies the emperor sends to her island. In her heart, she knows that it’s up to her to save herself from her fate as the emperor’s bride. But in her dreams, she sees a man, one with the power to build a better world—a man whose spirit is as strong, and whose passion is as fierce as her own…


Conrí, former Crown Prince of Oriel, has built an army to overthrow the emperor. But he needs the fabled Abiding Ring to succeed. The ring that Euthalia holds so dear to her heart. When the two banished rulers meet face to face, neither can deny the flames of rebellion that flicker in their eyes—nor the fires of desire that draw them together. But in this broken world of shattered kingdoms, can they ever really trust each other? Can their fiery alliance defeat the shadows of evil that threaten to engulf their hearts and souls?

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. When I started to read this book it was the first thing I had read by this author. The description drew me in and I wanted to see how the series started to see if I was going to read the rest of come. It has a bit of a slow start for me, but the way the world was displayed before me and the characters personality told me that I was going to love them. I really felt something for the shattered kingdom and that had fallen under the emperor rule. There is a lot to love about this book. I need to get my hands on the next books so I can see what happen next.

My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
