Three girls with three deadly secrets. Only one can wear the crown.
The king is dying, his heir has just been murdered, and rebellion brews in the east. But the kingdom of Kolonya and the outer Reaches has one last option before it descends into leaderless chaos.
Or rather, three unexpected options.
Zofi has spent her entire life trekking through the outer Reaches with her band of Travelers. She would do anything to protect the band, her family. But no one can ever find out how far she’s already gone.
Akeylah was raised in the Eastern Reach, surrounded by whispers of rebellion and abused by her father. Desperate to escape, she makes a decision that threatens the whole kingdom.
Ren grew up in Kolonya, serving as a lady’s maid and scheming her way out of the servants’ chambers. But one such plot could get her hung for treason if anyone ever discovers what she’s done.
When the king summons the girls, they arrive expecting arrest or even execution. Instead they learn the truth: they are his illegitimate daughters, and one must become his new heir. But someone in Kolonya knows their secrets, and that someone will stop at nothing to keep the sisters from their destiny… to rule.
Magic, mystery, and blackmail abound in this sensational and striking fantasy debut.
I did liked this book. The story idea was pretty neat and the cover was pretty. I liked the idea that total strangers are thrown together by fate. As of right now I don’t have a favorite character yet. It was an magical read.
Zofi, Akeylah and Ren don’t have a lot in common. Until one day at a king’s summon, their world gets turn upside. I like at first the girls want nothing to do with each other. Mostly the girls are focus hiding their secrets and trying to survive palace life. But, when a blackmailer comes along, will the girls be able to trust each other or is one of them the blackmailer?
This book is filled with magical fun. A little history lessons about the kingdom and how magic is made. If you looking for a new fantasy adventure, with some twists and turns. Then your in luck, you might enjoy Rule.
