Cinderella in outer space.

Squire Corann fell in love with Princess Anlei almost from the moment he first saw her. Cold, dutiful, and determined to not follow her grandmother's footsteps as high priestess, Anlei barely knew he existed. Corann was her grandmother's protege and that was quite enough to make her dislike him. That is until a fateful ruling by the Great Council puts her in the middle of the Great Succession Crisis. With her life on the line, will she learn to trust the man who loves her or will she fall prey to enemies only interested in seizing power for themselves?

I received a copy of this book as a gift from the Author. It did not influence my review. I enjoyed this book, even though it is not my usual genre. The story takes place on the planet Beinan, and involves the ruling Gurun dynasty. The daughter of the queen is unable to succeed the throne, and the Gurun dynasty may be at an end. The telling of Princess Anlei and Lord Corann was wonderful. I enjoyed reading about their courtship and love. The only note I found jarring were the use of strange words for hours, days, and measurements. For me, it slowed the flow of reading and interrupted my pleasure of the story. I understand the story was on a different planet than ours, but it was like a little speed bump each time. I recommend the book, and can't wait to read the second in the series.

The author obviously gave great thought to this world she has created. She succeeded in making it interesting, and exciting. There's romance, political intrigue, and mystery. I think she developed her characters well, and I've already purchased the sequel, as I want to see how Beinan fares in it!

In the Great Succession Crisis I was overjoyed to be tremendously entertained by the compelling characters and magnificently created world. This book had a little bit of everything in it from political drama to mystery to romance. There were a few parts that slowed down the storyline a little but it did not distract from the plot and characters overall. I also received a companion of sorts to the book as a separate ebook that includes an interesting glossary that was quite helpful. Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

The Great Succession Crisis was very entertaining. It captured my full attention due to its multiple genres it covered - romance, mystery, politics, hope etc...Everyone can certainly find something to enjoy about this book. At the end of the book you can find translations and definitions for all the weights and measures etc...It is the sci-fi weights and measures that really slowed down my reading and staying focused on this story. I don't have a suggestion as to how the author could have proceeded differently but I felt that all those new concepts made this story not such a casual read. It is for that reason only that I give this 4 out of 5 stars. I received this book directly from the author. All opinions, good or bad, are my own.
