The breathtaking sequel to The Princess Will Save You in the Kingdoms of Sand and Sky duology — a brilliantly-executed YA fantasy homage to The Princess Bride
To stay together forever, Princess Amarande and her stableboy love, Luca, must part: Amarande to reclaim her kingdom from usurpers, and Luca to raise a rebellion and find his destiny. Arrayed against them are all the players in the game of thrones for control over the continent of The Sand and Sky. Facing unspeakable betrayals, enemies hidden in the shadows, and insurmountable odds, their only hope is the power of true love…
I really enjoyed this sequel to The Princess Will Save You , though not quite as much as the first. The Queen Will Betray You gives you tons of action from the very first page to the very last. There are so many twists and turns, it is impossible to trust anyone. This one has multiple POV, but they were easy to keep straight. The first book was styled after The Princess Bride, but this one didn’t have that feeling as much to me. I found that it was an easy read like the first, but even with the amount of action that happened in this one, I felt that it was a lot of filler to get to the third book.
I definitely recommend this series though, and I am highly looking forward to the third book next year! Many thanks to Tor Teen and NetGalley for the early copy!
