For Princess Alyrra, choice is a luxury she’s never had … until she’s betrayed.
Princess Alyrra has never enjoyed the security or power of her rank. Between her family’s cruelty and the court’s contempt, she has spent her life in the shadows. Forced to marry a powerful foreign prince, Alyrra embarks on a journey to meet her betrothed with little hope for a better future.
But powerful men have powerful enemies—and now, so does Alyrra. Betrayed during a magical attack, her identity is switched with another woman’s, giving Alyrra the first choice she’s ever had: to start a new life for herself or fight for a prince she’s never met. But Alyrra soon finds that Prince Kestrin is not at all what she expected. While walking away will cost Kestrin his life, returning to the court may cost Alyrra her own. As Alyrra is coming to realize, sometimes the hardest choice means learning to trust herself.
If you have read my posts in the past year you might know about author Insitar Khanani’s book “Thorn”. There are two previous covers for this book and I am really liking all of them, including the new one!
Do you have a preference? Which one do you like? Also, if you haven’t read Khanani’s book and you are a fan of retellings and princesses do try her work out!
If you are interested for more details about “Thorn” you can see my REVIEW of the book.
