Overview

Raised by a noble family, Lady Adelaide has always known she’s an orphan. Little does she realize she’s one of the lost princesses and the true heir to Mercia’s throne…until a visitor arrives at her family estate, reveals her birthright as queen, and thrusts her into a quest for the throne whether she’s ready or not.

Unable to tolerate King Ethelwulf’s cruelty and lawlessness, Christopher Langley left Mercia years earlier, training a group of rebels in neighboring Norland. When he returns home after his mother’s death, he discovers that not only is Adelaide all grown up, but she’s also the rightful queen of Mercia.

When King Ethelwulf discovers Adelaide’s location, he’ll stop at nothing to capture her and the key she holds to the ancient treasure. Christopher is just as determined to protect Adelaide so she can lead the growing rebellion. When feelings ignite between the two old friends, forces threaten to destroy their love and rip them apart forever.

This. Book. It’s gorgeously imagined, flawlessly executed, and deeply felt. The characters are multi-dimensional, something that is highlighted even more clearly in the first person narrative from different perspectives. This is sometimes a tricky device to pull off well, but – no surprise – Jody Hedlund achieves it with excellence. The emotions run high in Evermore, even more so than they did in Always. Adelaide, Christopher, and Mitchell all have very layered backstories, and while we are privy to some of Adelaide’s if we’ve read Always, it’s unfolding for her in ‘real time’ as she begins putting all the pieces of her past together. Watching her come into her own as a queen who seeks wisdom from God – and doesn’t cower from danger but stands up for the mistreated & oppressed, caring deeply for those she loves – is truly inspiring. Seeing how that fits in with the legend about the lost treasure and the lost princesses made me even more giddy to read the next two books. Christopher… oh swoon. Strong but vulnerable, especially where Adelaide is concerned. The looks he gives her, even in the briefest moments when he can no longer hide his feelings for her, made her pulse go all twitterpated – and mine too! The guilt he wrestles with – as well as his misguided fears of inadequacy – add depth and a little angst to his swooniliciousness. I loved him in every scene, but particularly when he was being most tender with Adelaide (kissing the top of her head and breathing her in – WHERE’S MY FAN?!?) as well as anytime he shared a scene with King Draybane (i loved that king!) and whenever he turned on his charm full force. (There I go, swooning again.) Bottom Line: Evermore is a masterpiece of fiction – this whole series is shaping up to be so. Adventure, romance, bravery, courage, loyalty, godly wisdom, and true love (even from unexpected sources) are all wrapped up in a tale laced with legend and intriguing possibilities. You’ll want to keep reading, unable to put it down, but at the same time you won’t want it to end. The characters take up residence in your heart and stay there for the duration – and I know I’ll be thinking about them for a long time to come.

MY THOUGHTS ON “Evermore” If you have read the novella, “Always”, then you will want to read “Evermore” because it is book one that follows. Lady Adelaide is the true heir to Mercia’s throne and holds to the ancient treasure. King Ethelwulf wants that treasure, but not if Christopher Langley can help it. This sets for a dangerous journey, one you are sure to want to follow! I love a good fairytale, and author Jody Hedlund writes just that in her new medieval series. I love the characters, and how they develop so well into the story. I was pulled into the story from the beginning, and this was a hard one for me to put down, once I started reading. Theres a lot of good and evil going on here, and I wouldn’t begin to know how to tell it, but that’s why you need to read the book for yourself. Especially if you love a good clean fairytale fantasy. You can’t go wrong with “Evermore”. I love that Ms. Hedlund writes amazing YA books, just as she does historical fiction. We need both genres to read! And I love this cover! It is so beautiful and eye catching! I would sure pick this book from the shelves to buy! A copy of this book was given to me by the author or publisher. I am not required to write a positive review. The opinions here in this review are totally mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

In Evermore, Lady Adelaide knows nothing about her birth family, except that she is an orphan. She didn’t expect to find out that she was the true heir to Mercia’s throne, nor did she want to fight for her throne. Her friend Christopher Langley returns home to find his childhood friend Adelaide being hunted by the tyrant king Ethelwulf. Christopher is determined to protect her, and the secret treasure. Can they uncover the secret behind the first key to the treasure before Ethelwulf finds them? So glad I don't have to wait too long for the rest of this series! Hedlund excels at providing a clean romance suitable for teens and adults alike. Family loyalty, adventure, intrigue, and more await the reader in this series. As always, Hedlund sets the stage with descriptive historical details and relatable characters in this clean romance, suitable for adults and older teens.

Mrs. Hedlund has written another page-turner of a story! While this story is labeled as YA, I thoroughly enjoyed this story (and I'm not YA). This story is based during the majestical time of queens and kings and kept me up way past my bedtime! I loved the characters in this story, their development, and the way the story moves along. This story has great use of setting, plot, pacing, and detail. There were many twists and turns--just enough to keep the reader guessing about what is next to come. Evermore is the first book in the Lost Princesses series but it isn't the beginning. The prequel novella is Always, but it isn't necessary to read Always in order to enjoy reading Evermore, although knowing the backstory is always nice. Evermore is the first book, and it is complete in itself. The reader can anticipate the next book without being left hanging. The reader knows more is coming but it is a satisfying ending. I recommend this story to anyone who loves the time period of kings and queens, anyone looking for a clean read, anyone who is willing to stay up past their bedtime, and anyone who loves a great hero! I was provided with an advance reader copy of this book with no expectations except that I provide an honest review.

Evermore is book one in The Lost Princesses series. Adelaide and Christopher were so wonderful in this novel. Both of these characters had a real heart for doing right and caring for others. Adelaide had a lot of responsibility to accept in this novel and a fight not only to save the people of Mercia, but also to try and survive to save her sisters, as well. The complex emotions between Adelaide and Christopher were compelling to read about. They both struggled with the right path to take. Was duty and honor to Mercia something that required them to let go of the possibility of loving each other? This story was captivating from start to finish. I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.

THIS STORY! Y'all....if you are an avid fan of medieval YA fiction...GET YOUR HANDS ON THIS BOOK! *ahem*...excuse me...What I mean to say is...You will really enjoy this one! Fast-paced with lots of adventure, sweet romance, and sacrifice, you will devour this story for sure. Adelaide is the very image of faithfulness. Her devotion to her family and country are to be admired, while also feeling for her with all the changes when her life was tipped upsidedown. Without giving away spoilers, I want to say that this story was an emotional rollercoaster for sure! Betrayals, alliances, deceptions, and teamwork brings it all together into perfect harmony. This is the first full-length book of the series, but you will want to read the Prequel, Always (found below), to really understand the depth of this story. Ms. Hedlund delivers a tasteful romance thread that is appropriate for the YA genre (in my own opinion). So many books these days are questionable for the YA genre and it makes me sad. SO, I am thrilled to be able to promote and point y'all to Ms. Hedlund's series. Safe, clean, and so well-written, adults and YA alike will be on the edge of your seat hanging on every word. I received a complimentary copy of Evermore from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.

After reading the compelling prequel novella to this series, I couldn't wait to discover the fates of the three lost princesses. Adelaide is the oldest of the three, and discovers her true identity at the beginning of the book. The author did a great job of giving the reader a sense of her character and personality before the action and adventure swept the story into a faster pace. Reunited with Adelaide after several years of being disowned by his father, Christopher faces his own dilemmas but the themes of loyalty, family, and forgiveness help him and Adelaide overcome the obstacles in their paths. I easily connected with the characters and felt the danger and excitement as I read. I'm looking forward to the next two books and am *very* appreciative that there won't be a long wait for them!

Evermore is the first book in the series The Lost Princesses. There is a prequel novella titled Always that I would suggest you read prior to starting this series. Evermore is AMAZING! It is a Young Adult novel but truthfully can be read by any age group. I absolutely loved this book and can not wait for the next books to come out. Adelaide is a strong, determined young lady and several time throughout the book I was reminded of several women in the Bible. Christopher is a caring, born-leader who Adelaide was raised with believing they are cousins. As the story progresses so does their budding romance. This is one book that you will not want to put down and you will want to recommend it to all your friends.

While I truly enjoyed Always and blew through it very quickly, I enjoyed Evermore so much more and am so excited for the next installment!! Read on to find out why... Ohhh, I liked the characters! Of course Adelaide and Christopher were too cute together, but even more than that, watching as they bettered and strengthened each other throughout the story without giving up their indomitable personalities was fabulous! (Also, although I struggled with Mitchell at some points, I did really end up appreciating his complex character as well.) I thought the storyline ran a little similar to Always, but the nuances, new backgrounds, and personalities all helped to make it fascinating and unique in its own way. One of my absolute favorite parts of this book though was Adelaide’s faith and steadfastness. She struck me as someone who would indeed become a good ruler, not because of royal blood or her unique abilities, but because she took her reign (with all of its complexity and fear) to God and trusted Him for the wisdom to guide her through it. ....And I cannot wait to see what comes next!! I highly recommend this one for YA readers, especially those intrigued by Medieval or Fantasy themes. I received a copy of this book for FREE and a positive review was not required.

Evermore by Jody Hedlund is the first book in The Lost Princesses series and definitely worth reading if you love fairy tales. Lady Adelaide has no idea that she is one of the lost princesses to the Mercia throne, but when Christopher Langley comes to protect her he hopes that she will lead the rebellion against King Ethelwulf and take her rightful place on the throne. I'm looking forward to reading more books in this wonderful series! I was given an ARC from the author/publisher. All conclusions are mine and mine alone.

Evermore is the start of Jody Hedlund’s newest young adult Medieval era series, The Lost Princesses. Readers are introduced to Lady Adelaide, an orphan, who soon discovers she is heir to Mercia’s throne and soon finds her life is in danger when this secret is revealed. I loved that her old friend, Christopher, comes to her rescue and does whatever it takes to protect her. Evermore is getting a well deserved five plus stars from me. I enjoyed Adelaide’s story and can not wait to read the next installment from The Lost Princesses series. Great read! I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.

Wow I totally loved “Evermore” the first book in the Lost Princesses Series! I read “Always”, the prequel of this series, and although “Evermore” can be read as a standalone, it helped me to know how the story started, how the “lost princesses” were rescued and taken to safety during King Ethelwulf’s attack to Mercia. He’s been a harsh, and evil ruler, killing everyone who opposes him as a King of Bryttania, the union of Mercia and Warwick (his previous kingdom), and even killing entire families, from elders to children. “Always” is a beautiful and captivating story about the rescuers of the princesses. In “Evermore” it’s Adelaide’s discovery that she is really Constance, the true heir to Mercia, not the orphan taken by her dearest aunt and uncle, that were more than parents to her. But Aunt Susanna, finally reveals her secret on her deathbed. Not only she is the rightful Queen of Mercia, but she holds the Key, one of three, which are supposed to be in possession of her two sisters, to Solomon’s Treasure, which has been hunted by generations. When Adelaide discovers her identity, she doesn’t know what to do. Can she leave her dear life at Langley, where she cares and provides for her tenants and people? Mitchell, her cousin, vows to protect her... But then Christopher arrives, her eldest cousin, who is considered a traitor after leaving Langley five years ago to join other forces against King Ethelwulf in Norland. There’s a strong and sweet bond from the start between Adelaide and Cristopher. And when he learns she’s the Queen and that King Ethelwulf knows her whereabouts, he vows to protect her too, and help her regain her people’s support and other kingdoms help to reclaim the throne. It’s a journey of life and death. Of hard decisions and Adeline/Constance finally growing up into the woman God made her to be. To discover her mission to rule, sacrifice and work for her people’s well being and safety. To stop the injustice and put an end to Ethelwulf’s evil reign. But is she ready? There’s also the issue of Cristopher and Mitchell’s devotion to her. She loves them both, they are her only kin yet, but who is the one she loves more than a brother? This is a beautiful story. The plot is totally engaging, I couldn’t put it down. There’s danger, adventure, intrigue, sweet romance. She has to find her lost sisters so that together they can join forces, find the treasure and fight against Ethelwulf. It’s a dangerous journey for sure. Will she survive it and gain her people’s trust in the way as Christopher predicts? The best part of the story was the characters. The characters, Adelaide and Christopher, were so deep and compelling, compassionate, kind and humble. Mitchell is a great character too, although he has to fight bitterness against what he thinks is his brother’s treason and abandonment, jealously, etc. But I think every character grows along the way in this story, especially Adelaide. And I truly fell in love with Christopher, he was humble, and so brave. I don’t want to spoil the story, but I just want to say that I think it’s the best YA series of Jody. I couldn’t put it down, and fell in love with the characters, the story, setting, everything. There’s a deep Christian message behind which is not preachy at all, about trusting God with your decisions and seeking his guidance and letting Him keep the control. A must read. I vividly recommend it, not only to YA readers, it’s perfect for adults too!

"Always" was the beginning. The story continues with "Evermore." An exciting adventure of its own as Adelaide comes of age and learns her true identity. This book grabbed a hold of me from the first joust and didn't let go! As Adelaide comes to grips with the reality that she is Constance Dierdal Aurora, the crown princess of Mercia, she is forced into a battle for her life. The story truly is an action/battle filled adventure that had me on the edge of my seat. I was also drawn to the softer side of the story. The truths of family, loyalty, love, and destiny. The quiet moments of conversation, attraction,and personal turmoil. My inner reading voice slowed to a whisper as Sister Katherine entered the room and bowed to Adelaide. I held my breath as she told her "You will one day be a great queen, ...Not because of what you accomplish, but because of who you will become as a woman of God." And again, much later when Christopher tells Adelaide " You must face the demons of your past so that you can force yourself to finally walk beyond them. " There are plenty of fun moments too. I laughed out loud when King Draybane told Christopher, "God gifted you with a handsome face and a charming smile. Use them..." I am eagerly awaiting the next books in this series! Will Adelaide find her sisters?

Okay so I stayed up till way to late o'clock finishing this book. Once you start this read, it is near impossible to put down! I just HAD to know how it ended!! The story was exciting and moved at a very good pace. It has some really sad parts which got to me but the book is super good. I am waiting impatiently for books 2 and 3 in this set....I need them SOON!!! I received these books from the author and was not required to post positive reviews. All thoughts are my own.

I loved this story! I highly recommend that you read the novella (Always, #0.5 in the series) preceding this book as it gives details about the background of Adelaide and her role as heir to Mercia’s throne. This story then picks up years later and allows us to keep reading about grown Adelaide and her compassionate heart, wise ruling, and strong spirit. I could not put the book down! Adelaide is not the wimpy female waiting for her knight in shining armor—she can fight better than most men and has a brave and strong soul! The series may be marketed to young adults but I can attest to the fact that the stories will grab you no matter your age. With daring knights, beautiful princesses, and picturesque kingdoms, it will not take long for you to be pulled into the story. There is depth to the romance and characters. I really enjoyed the plot, which had moments that made me cry and moments that made me smile, and I cannot wait for the next book in the series! I most highly recommend it! I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

After reading the prequel novella, Always, I knew I wanted to read the entire Lost Princesses series. Book One, Evermore, did not disappoint. When the woman who raised her is on her deathbed, she discloses Adelaide’s rightful identity with this request, “God saved your life, Adelaide. And now it is time for you to give it back in service to Him as the ruler you were born to be. Promise you will do so.” Is it true, is she one of the three lost princesses? Will she be able to find her two sisters before the evil King Ethelwulf? Author Jody Hedlund is a skilled storyteller transforming an exciting page-turning adventure with an element of romance into a true fairy tale. The Lost Princesses Series is not just for young adults. I am far removed from that age group and I am loving it. I do suggest you begin this series by reading the prequel novella first. I’m eagerly looking forward to Books Two and Three! I received a copy of this book from the publisher and author. The opinions are completely my own.

I adored Always, the prequel novella to the Lost Princesses series and Evermore kept me up way past a decent hour flipping pages. You absolutely MUST know the conclusion to this story once you’ve begun. There’s a battlefield full of action, some fantastic characters and an intriguing adventure that will have you yearning for more. Adelaide is shocked to discover she is the missing Princess Constance, rightful Queen of Mercia. Now, thrust into a role she never wanted, she must find the two remaining princesses and regain their father’s throne from King Ethelwulf. I would recommend you read Always first, as it will set the stage for Adelaide’s tale and it really was a joy to read. Jody Hedlund has started something wonderful and if you’re a fan of medieval romance, fairytales and a perilous journey you will not want to miss this one! I received a copy of this novel from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

This is the first in Jody Hedlund’s new series, The Lost Princesses. I definitely recommend reading the prequel before this book as it sets up what happens here, helping the reader to understand the political climate and culture, as well as the backstory to the individual princesses and why they had to be raised separately and with no knowledge of who they really are. That being said, this novel is about the Crown Princess Constance, who has been living under the assumed name of Adelaide, unaware of her heritage but knowing she is an orphan. She has become a spirited young woman who excels in many things: she is a fierce warrior, smart, beautiful, and has a heart that cares for people, even above what may be best for herself, often putting herself in danger to protect others around her. Her fiercest protector is Christopher, a young man who left the country and his family behind, rather than be subject to the evil King Ethelwulf’s reign any longer. When he returns and finds his “cousin” is really the rightful queen, he wants to help her to the throne, even if it costs him his life, or his heart. I truly enjoyed this character, even if he sometimes left me wanting to knock some sense into him. What follows those revelations is a breathtaking ride of a story that kept me turning pages long after I should have been doing other things! The book drew me in and wouldn’t let go; even when things seemed hopeless, I wanted to read just a few more chapters to see if they’d survive this latest obstacle. I highly recommend this book for those who enjoy stories of royalty, young adults and up. While perhaps marketed as YA, these books hold a wide appeal and are certainly great reads for anyone teen or older, due to some battle sequences that may be disturbing for younger readers. I received a review copy of this book from the author but was under no obligation to post a positive review. The opinions expressed are both honest and my own.

This is an exciting book with a bit of a fairy-tale type feel to it--except it's cooler than most traditional fairy tales because the princess isn't sitting around waiting for a happily ever after. Adelaide isn't your typical princess; she's tough and has trained like a knight, even secretly competing in jousts, while being very compassionate and tender-hearted at the same time, which made her a really interesting character. I liked how Christopher was a good balance for her--he respected her but also worried about her and wasn't afraid to tell her when he thought she was wrong. This book was a lot of fun to read, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I read a copy of the book provided by the author/publisher. All opinions are my own.

Oh my goodness! Ms Hedlund has a talent of drawing the reader in from page one and holding attention through the last page. Excellent story telling-filled with suspense, intrigue, honor, wisdom, and romance. This is the perfect YA book (that isn’t just for young adults-)!! The ending was such a cliff hanger, I can’t wait for the next book to be released!!! My daughters will love this series-they are already anticipating it since reading Always.

I just have to say it: Adelaide was quite the handful. She could give as good as she could take. With so much at stake, I kept expecting her to step back but she had never learned to do that. Growing up in the same house with two older cousins who were practically like brothers to her, she learned a lot more about hunting, fishing, fighting, and so on than she did about the ways of a woman. The greatest lessons, like believing, trusting, and serving God, probably came from her Aunt Susanna. I admired the way she had a tender heart for those less fortunate, which seemed to be a major portion of the country. I appreciated that her treatment of others who were looked down on by most depicted such a wonderful lesson for us even today. I am reminded of Jesus’s words about having the poor with us always. Adelaide saw their plight and sought to take steps to help wherever she could. The action was riveting and the tension was strong. Quite an exciting read! I received an advance copy of this book from the author. This is my honest review. All opinions are strictly my own.

“There are times when we need to hold out faith and hope even when the circumstances seem impossible.”-Jody Hedlund, Evermore I very rarely read a book in one day; however, Jody Hedlund's Evermore is the exception. What a riveting story! It was irresistible! I couldn't put it down.. Evermore is Ms. Hedlund's upcoming release in her new YA series, The Lost Princesses. Its prequel novella, Always, was also a compelling read. Ms. Hedlund is a masterful storyteller. The author's historical details, heart-stopping descriptions, and the tale's unpredictable twist and turns captivated me. I enjoyed the character development of Lady Adelaide, Christopher Langley and Mitchell Langley. I especially enjoyed Lady Adelaide's character. She is a firecracker! She portrays great strength, courage, and wisdom rooted in God's care and His provision. I really admired Ms. Hedlund's thoughtful inclusion of forgiveness and reconciliation between the characters, as well as the characters firm resolve to obey God in His role for them and trust Him to equip them to carry out their roles. Another element I appreciated was the sweet romance the author developed between Lady Adelaide and Christopher. It was a beautiful love story. Something about Ms. Hedlund that I greatly admire is that she writes lovely and clean romance, and it still makes my heart skip a beat! I have thoroughly enjoyed each of Ms. Hedlund's books. She is an excellent author. Evermore contains depth and fullness, something I appreciate about Ms. Hedlund's writing. I'm so excited about her Lost Princesses series! I'm a mother of three daughters and I cannot wait to share these wonderful books with them! As the school year begins, enjoy Evermore. You'll be swept away on a magnificent medieval adventure that will remain with you long after you finish its last page. “If only love came more easily. But then, love wouldn't mean as much if one could gain it without any cost whatsoever.”-Jody Hedlund, Evermore *I am grateful to the author and publisher for providing a complimentary copy of this book. I was not obligated or expected to write a positive review. My thoughts and opinions are solely my own.

I read the prequel to this book entitled “Always” and I loved that story so much that I knew I wanted to read the rest of this series. (You will not have to read that novella before reading this book, but it’s excellent.) This fairytale book has strong characters and a suspenseful, romantic storyline. Constance’s character is the driving force of this book. Even though she was not aware that she is one of the “lost princesses”, she was trained by her adopted parents to someday take over the throne that is rightfully hers. Constance has grown up into a woman of courage, grace, and compassion. She’d also trained with her adopted brothers in warfare, and her skills rival theirs. When Constance finds out her true identity as Queen, she immediately begins seeking for her two previously unknown sisters. But she is in great danger, and it will take all the skill of her two adopted brothers to keep her safe on her journey. The romance in the story between Christopher and Constance does not always run smooth, and they find themselves depending on each other as they make the perilous journey to a neighboring kingdom. This clean and sweet book has all the romance and suspense you’d expect in a fairytale by Jody Hedlund. I’m looking forward to continuing the story of the sisters in the upcoming books in this series. I received a copy of this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
