4/5 Stars
Synopsis per Goodreads:
Who makes YOUR choices?

"I was once the type of person who was impressed by starlight; the type of person who would dance beneath glass ceilings and let the world swim in its loveliness. The sky reminds me of the parties we used to throw - parties like the one last night. The memories bring back the trill of harps and endless ripples of satisfied laughter. Now, though, when I try to recall what I felt, all I hear is screaming."

In a world ravaged by war and oppressive forces of evil, a princess must fight to claim her bloodright and save her people.

When the princess, Alondra, falls for the beautiful, blue eyes of a hooded stranger, it awakens in her a taste for freedom and an escape from her duty.

But her parents have other plans; they have a kingdom to protect and Alondra must marry to ensure the peace between nations. Only what happens when your parents choose a cold-hearted assassin as your betrothed?

As lies, illusions, and long hidden vendettas surface, the princess has to confront a very secret history. One that makes her realize that she not only risks losing her liberty, but also everything she has known and loved

My thoughts on this book:

This book is a fantasy book, it's not one of my stronger genres, however I was sucked into it.  I started reading and enjoyed myself immensely.  The formatting of the book at first was hard to get into, it jumped back and forth between past and present until it all came together in present.  I understand why it had to be done that way, to learn how we got to this point, the present, and in a War.  The different lands and people, the secrets, and how it all came to be.
This book has a little bit of everything.  Lies, Secrets, Betrayal, Magic, Love, Hope, a little bit of it all.  It follows the past, the present, and the hope of a nice future.  There were times throughout that I got a little bit confused, with who was who and what world was what, and the why's of it, some of the magical parts of it I didn't quite understand the why's.  But i still enjoyed myself, I thought it was a good read, especially if you are a fan of the YA and the Fantasy genre.
