Overview

After seventeen-year-old Andrina's home is demolished by meteors, she encourages her family to relocate to Legora, one of the few remaining cities that promise a new life to weary travelers. But Legora's food and supplies are in shortage--too many refugees have sought protection behind its gates--and the only option is to appeal to the King of the New World for provisions. When the town assembles a lottery to choose who will plea to the king, Andrina holds the ill-fated ticket.

Her arrival in Valyad, the royal territory, sparks intrigue from King Zarek. Andrina can't imagine herself acting like the other girls, who flounce after Zarek's affection and money, but she considers giving in to her flirty side if it'll guarantee that her family is fed. So when Zarek leaves Andrina with a bitter decision--marry him or he'll strip Legora of its supplies--she has no choice but to accept being Queen of the New World.

Soon, though, Andrina uncovers that Valyad is smothered in deceit. Days after their wedding, Zarek is found stabbed to death and all fingers point to Andrina. Betrayed by Valyad's governor, who wants the crown for himself, Andrina learns that it's the people who will cast a vote on her fate; people who don't want a commoner operating their kingdom. Andrina must not only convince Valyad that their king didn't die by her hand, but also outsmart the sly politicians of the realm with a surprise they can't outrun.

I have to say that I hated this book. the writing, was good, the plot was ok, and the characters had semi- depth. I hated this book because the ending of this book was the worst I ever read.

Started well, had a good pace. Ending didn't really get resolved. I kept thinking, how the heck is she going to fix this in __ amount of pages? Then I realized, she wasn't going to fix it, she wasn't writing more. She must've been depressed or angry because she just regurgitates the last 60 or so pages. Which, considering a series could've brought her a lot of revenue, was a serious mistake. Wouldn't recommend it to ANYONE. Wish I would've read the reviews first before I purchased as well.
