Blair Reynolds was born to rule. Worlds, that is. Destined to reign over an ancient intergalactic race, it may seem her fate is written in the stars. But she's willing to risk it all for another chance to spend forever with her true love - even if it means traveling through time and space to the other side of the universe.

As far as Ash is concerned, Blair's happily-ever-after involves him, not the mere mortal with whom she seems so infatuated. She was bequeathed to him by her father, and Ash will go to any lengths to keep Blair and her true love apart.

And Ash isn't the only one.

Deep in the jungles of Brazil, where tribal drums call to Blair and her true love, other forces carry out dangerous secret plans.

However, Blair has secrets of her own ... secrets so lethal she dares not even remember them.
Secrets so painful they could ruin everything.

Because some secrets kill.

Will Blair stay with her true love, or hold true to the deal she made? You know I can't tell you! You have to read it for yourself!

Every question the last book left me with was answered. Blair has so much information thrown at her about herself and her past and now she has so many decisions to make, plus the has to survive the jungle and those hunting her. I love how this story played out. We get some alien history plus a beautiful romance that is so much deeper and involved than I ever saw coming. I don't want to risk spoilers, but there was so much deapth offered up in this book. While all lose ends were tied up nicely, there was still the potential for more. Maybe a spin-off on some of the characters or future generations? It definitely left me hoping for more. Monarch by Belle Whittington was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Belle Whittington tells a wonderful story of love and adventure in Monarch, the last book in the Cicada trilogy. From the minute I started reading I was hooked on this book. Its is non stop action and suspense throughout the book and the love story is a sweet and beautiful one. This book had me on my toes, crying, laughing and smiling. I was unable to put it down from the beginning to the end. unfortunately I wasn't able to read the first two books before getting into this one but Belle did a great job at making sure new readers didn't miss a thing and she did it without spending too much time in the past. She is also very good at telling a story with such detail that you feel like you are in the book with the characters but not too much that you feel overloaded with information that isn't relevant to the story. In the end she was able to put a great ending to Blair and Everette's story but keep some of the other characters stories open so that hopefully there will be more books on their world to come.

In this final installment of Belle Whittington's Cicada trilogy, we find out if Blair will follow her heart. Will Blair choose Everett her true love or Ash the one chosen for her? Will she rule like she was destined to do? Or throw it all away to be with the one she loves? Will Blair find her mother? You will find all these answers and so much more in this book. This story is an action packed full of suspense and yet a wonderful love story combined. It's a keep you on the edge, turning the next page kind of book. Once I started to read, I could not stop. As the story began to unfold and many layers of secrets were revealed it seemed to me like I knew where it was heading. WRONG! This story had so many twists and angles and of course more secrets. New characters were introduced and I fell in love with them. As Blair is searching for more answers, more hidden agendas from others were revealed. This book is a wonderful love story yet it is about aliens and survival. Where two soul mates were meant to be together but will they have that chance? Ash makes a point to keep Blair to himself and at all cost tries to split Blair and Everett up. Can their love survive the kind of secrets that unfold when Blair begins to remember? Will these secrets kill? If so, who? And why? Come find out and read Monarch. Belle Whittington sure knows how to write so you feel like you are apart of the book. Belle will capture her audience and keep you thoroughly entertained. I know I was. I loved this trilogy and I am so blessed I ran into Belle and she sold me her first two books. Her enthusiasm and story telling of Her books is what ultimately had me purchase them. Thank you for the honor of being able to read an advanced copy of your baby, Monarch. Monarch is wonderful read. I highly recommend this book. Monarch get 5 stars from me. ~Nicole C.~
