I had high hopes for this book. I loved the synopsis and the cover. But after a couple of chapters, it just did not hold for me. The main character didn’t catch my attention like I had hoped. I tried to give it more than a couple of chapters to hold on to my interest but I could not even make it there.
The main character, Freya, is 23rd in line and suddenly becomes queen by the fact everyone gets poisoned and only wants to conduct experiments and be a scientist. It is a great idea but there was no hold for me. I think this book should have been a sci-fi novel and a couple of things should have changed. Sadly I cannot recommend this book.
Two out of five stars. 😦
