Servant of the Crown was a highly enjoyable read. It was more romance than fantasy. The setting was interesting and one I enjoyed being immersed in. I fell in love with all the main characters and properly despised the villains. The writing was excellent as was the pacing. It's definitely a series I will be following. I felt as I read that I was being introduced to a new world that was a mix of historical England and futuristic/almost-steampunk. Old traditions were mixed with new. Royalty mixed with a governing council. Horses, candles, and more old-fashioned dress mixed with contraptions and girls wearing trousers. There was also a hint of magic, but it didn't play much of a role in this story. Alison, Anthony, Zara, the Dowager, Alison's dad, and Doyle were all fabulous characters. Even minor characters I felt were well formed and gave me a good picture of who they were. I really loved Alison and Anthony and how they both evolved during this story. I felt invested and hoped for a fabulous happily ever after for them. Getting there was a little rough with some heartbreaking moments, but also some hopeful ones. I do wish the content would have been slightly cleaner, but I was also warned by the author in regards to that. The story was pretty much perfect besides that and wanting a little more magic weaved through-out. Servant of the Crown was a great story that I thoroughly enjoyed. It brought out my emotions, both of sorrow as the characters went through some rough patches, those of appreciation and joy during the happier moments, and some moments that literally had me swooning. If you enjoy romance or fantasy, then this one is for you! At the end of the book there was also the beginning chapter of the next book in this series revolving around Queen Zara and I'm dying to finding out what happens next! Content: Quite a bit of innuendo, some violence, some mild swearing, some heavy making out, and one interrupted detailed scene that was referred back to in a character's thoughts. Source: I would like to thank the author Melissa McShane for my complimentary copy, which did not affect my review in any way.

Part 1 was so boring I almost quit reading it. Part 2 was more interesting but it only hinted at magic or a real steam punk vibe. Too much of a boring romance and not enough magic. I didn't care much for the heroine because she was so unforgiving. She didn't deserve the prince.

This book was an engaging and fun read; mostly romance with a dash of fantasy and steampunk. The main character is spunky and smart. Character development is excellent. If you liked The Parasol Protectorate series, you will like this book.
