About the Book

An ancient key. A secret treasure. And a princess destined to use them both to fight evil and restore peace.

Raised by a noble family, Lady Adelaide has always known she’s an orphan. Little does she realize she’s one of the lost princesses and the true heir to Mercia’s throne…until a visitor arrives at her family estate, reveals her birthright as queen, and thrusts her into a quest for the throne whether she’s ready or not.

Unable to tolerate King Ethelwulf’s cruelty and lawlessness, Christopher Langley left Mercia years earlier, training a group of rebels in neighboring Norland. When he returns home after his mother’s death, he discovers that not only is Adelaide all grown up, but she’s also the rightful queen of Mercia.

When King Ethelwulf discovers Adelaide’s location, he’ll stop at nothing to capture her and the key she holds to the ancient treasure. Christopher is just as determined to protect Adelaide so she can lead the growing rebellion. When feelings ignite between the two old friends, forces threaten to destroy their love and rip them apart forever.

My Thoughts

THIS STORY! Y'all....if you are an avid fan of medieval YA fiction...GET YOUR HANDS ON THIS BOOK! *ahem*...excuse me...What I mean to say is...You will really enjoy this one! Fast-paced with lots of adventure, sweet romance, and sacrifice, you will devour this story for sure.

Adelaide is the very image of faithfulness. Her devotion to her family and country are to be admired, while also feeling for her with all the changes when her life was tipped upsidedown. Without giving away spoilers, I want to say that this story was an emotional rollercoaster for sure! Betrayals, alliances, deceptions, and teamwork brings it all together into perfect harmony. This is the first full-length book of the series, but you will want to read the Prequel, Always (found below), to really understand the depth of this story.

Ms. Hedlund delivers a tasteful romance thread that is appropriate for the YA genre (in my own opinion). So many books these days are questionable for the YA genre and it makes me sad. SO, I am thrilled to be able to promote and point y'all to Ms. Hedlund's series. Safe, clean, and so well-written, adults and YA alike will be on the edge of your seat hanging on every word.

I received a complimentary copy of Evermore from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.
