The Traitor’s Game by Jennifer A. Nielsen

Book Summary:
Nothing is as it seems in the kingdom of Antora. Kestra Dallisor has spent three years in exile in the Lava Fields, but that won’t stop her from being drawn back into her father’s palace politics. He’s the right hand man of the cruel king, Lord Endrick, which makes Kestra a valuable bargaining chip. A group of rebels knows this all too well – and they snatch Kestra from her carriage as she reluctantly travels home.The kidnappers want her to retrieve the lost Olden Blade, the only object that can destroy the immortal king, but Kestra is not the obedient captive they expected. Simon, one of her kidnappers, will have his hands full as Kestra tries to foil their plot, by force, cunning, or any means necessary. As motives shift and secrets emerge, both will have to decide what – and who – it is they’re fighting for.

“In a traitor’s game, there are no. winners

Only those left standing at the end.

Cheat or be cheater

Crush or be crushed Play…… or be killed.

The next move is mine.”

My Review:

The book storyline was pretty interesting. Little slowish the storyline is. . I did enjoy some of the characters.

The main princess Kestra, pretends to be helpless but is very smart. She can wield an sword pretty good. There are secrets about her like why she disappeared for years and suddenly returning home. I like an princess who not so helpless in books. Along the way she gets kidnapped, will she be able to out smart her captors?

I like Simon so much. He may have have help kidnap the princess, but he has this kind heart inside. Even if the princess betray him years ago when they where kids. He still never lost his caring heart. Will Simon be foolish again to trust the princess?

Sadly story drag out and not to much magic factor going on until the end. Hopefully the action and magic will pick up in book two. If your into kidnap princess, and a magic villain on the loose then this book could be for you.
