Alessandra Stathos heads to the king's palace planning to seduce him, marry him, and then kill him. How else is she going to become the most powerful person in the world? But, as she gets to know the king it starts becoming harder to want to kill him as he turns into a friend, and then something more.
The writing and story were great. The way it was written made it very hard to put the book down.
I did not really like the plot twist at the end of the book, because it ruined a character that I genuinely liked and was too unexpected. While there was some foreshadowing, which was referenced in that part of the book as well, the reveal was just very jarring and seemingly unrealistic.
Rating: 5. Hard to imagine a better book
