Editorial Reviews

Heather Youse
"These characters were very interesting. I loved the fact that these two head strung young ladies had to learn to deal with each other and got stuck living together. My favorite was Elizabeth because she seemed so much more down to earth than Duchess. I can honestly say that I was rooting for her all along. Duchess needs to meet someone who gives her a taste of her own medicine.

This was a fun quick read and I am looking forward to the next book..." - Nightly Reading Reviews
Kathleen Rubino
"King’s greatest asset throughout the entire novel is her masterful use of description. It helps the reader picture exactly what is going on, whether it’s an outfit the girls are picking out or a cute boy they’re checking out...She also delves into the biggest college challenge of all, dealing with your roommate.
[The book] appeals to a wide audience as it is a quick read with some powerful insight into the lives of college students." - Pipe Dream Newspaper

Meet the Author

Etta King is the author of the Caspian University novels, a series chronicling the life and times of a group of wealthy teens who inevitably discover the various flavors of college drama. Etta writes from her personal experiences as a college co-ed and as the product of an all-girls prep school. Here she witnessed the very eccentricities and foibles which she depicts in her novels.

In a home filled with books, it was no surprise that Etta grew to be an avid reader, and that translated into writing when she was thirteen. She wrote simply for the fun of it, whatever would come to mind, from fantasy to thriller to romance, and shared her stories with her friends.

In 2010, at twenty-one and just as she was about to graduate from college, Etta began writing "The Life and Times of Elizabeth and the Duchess." This was a story which had first taken shape in 2008, after her freshman year, but had been put on hold. With graduation looming, Etta recalled the characters, and the events which had inspired them, and took pen to paper. Literally, as Etta enjoys writing out her stories before typing them out. Soon the first book had been completed and the series was born.

"The Life and Times of the Heir and the Keeper," comes as the sequel to "Elizabeth and the Duchess," and serves as the second semester of these teens' college saga. Etta is currently working on the third book, in what will be an eight-part series.

Etta King lives with her family in Westchester, New York.

    This was a pretty cool read. It wasn't pretentious or too exagge

    This was a pretty cool read. It wasn't pretentious or too exaggerated. I thought Judith was hilarious - I mean who walks around thinking their a princess?? - but I feel like Elizabeth is in over her head. Lol and so, so, many designers! But it was done well, I think...I definitely got the feeling the girls were really speaking and not someone advetising this or that label. It was definitely a realistic college story...every freshman probably felt like this...new guys, harder work, tons of clubs, crazy roommate, crazy friends...and then your family adds more drama. I really want to see more about Jonathan - he sounds hot lol - so I'm putting the second book on my list! :)
