Violet is a prophet and a liar, influencing the court as Seer with her cleverly phrased – and not always true – divinations. Honesty is for suckers, like the oh-so-not-charming Prince Cyrus, who plans to strip her of her title once he’s crowned.

After the king asks her to falsely prophesy Cyrus’s love story for an upcoming ball, Violet awakens a dreaded curse about the prince’s future bride. Her wits may protect her in the cutthroat court, but they can’t protect her against fate – nor the doomed attraction growing between her and the prince…

My Opinion:

I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book and I was curious what to expect. The cover just looks so beautiful and it fits the plot perfectly. I’ve started right away and the book was very easy to read. I couldn’t put the book down and I finished it in a few hours. I really liked the writing style. It was easy to read, very exciting, action-packed and really emotional. I felt so much reading this and loved it from the first page to the last.

The characters were very well developed and I was able to understand the individual actions and behaviors very well. I especially loved Violet’s character. She stands by her actions and doesn’t apologize. I really liked the fact that she fully accepted herself and her sometimes selfish behavior. She never bent over backwards for others. I really liked Cyrus as Violet’s counterpart. The squabbles between the two… This love-hate relationship was just so well written and you could actually feel the crackle while reading.

If you like books with action, lots of sizzling, enemies to lovers and a lot of feeling, you shouldn’t miss this book.
