Sixteen year old, Lady Kimess, is expected to one day inherit the role of Royal Seer. But when her mother dies under mysterious circumstances, Kimess steps up now. Untrained, and ill
prepared, she doesn’t have a choice. Her remaining family’s safety, as well as her life, rest in the hands of the Queen of Lazrel. Kimess isn’t without allies—even royal ones. Both of the queen’s sons have shown support. If she’s not careful, a friendship with either prince could prove deadly.
Kimess’ telepathic and prophetic abilities are called into action when a delegation from the
bordering empire arrives to renegotiate a treaty. Mistrust and rumors from every corner of the
kingdom swirl around her. Under constant guard in the castle, the only way Kimess can keep her life and one day earn her freedom is by giving the queen everything she requires—no matter the risks.




        


Review



Prisoner of the Crown by Cassie Clover, a powerful fantasy story about a sixteen year old girl becoming a Royal Seer. An exciting story unfolds enrapturing the reader down a dark spiral path where they may not return.


Lady Kimess carried her days with joy, practicing her powers and attending school like normal. Until one day she comes home, unable to communicate with her mother’s mind through a mental link was normal, what wasn’t normal were the servants stating they didn’t wake her mother even though she’s been ‘sleeping’ all day. Discovering her mother sprawled out in her bedroom, still as a rock, Kimess is blamed for her mother’s death until proven innocent. Murder? Suicide? These rumors have spread throughout her kingdom. It’s up to her to discover the truth but she must be careful, politics weren’t always an easy battle. Who were once her friends could be her enemies. Who can she trust? Discover the suspense and adventure as you delve into the pages yearning for more.


I enjoyed the description of the setting and room layouts, I wish a little more were centered around the characters who interacted with Lady Kimess within some chapters. Dialogue smooth and at times very well written especially during dramatic and combative scenes. When the main character was angry, it would seep out of their conversation and Kimess’s thoughts. With enriched plot, this story is willing to please the right reader whose interest lies in fantasy and adventure with a hint of suspense.
