Violet Made of Thorns by Gina Chen


Violet is a prophet and a liar, influencing the royal court with her cleverly phrased—and not always true—divinations. Honesty is for suckers, like the oh-so-not charming Prince Cyrus, who plans to strip Violet of her official role once he’s crowned at the end of the summer—unless Violet does something about it.

But when the king asks her to falsely prophesy Cyrus’s love story for an upcoming ball, Violet awakens a dreaded curse, one that will end in either damnation or salvation for the kingdom—all depending on the prince’s choice of future bride. Violet faces her own choice: Seize an opportunity to gain control of her own destiny, no matter the cost, or give in to the ill-fated attraction that’s growing between her and Cyrus.

Violet’s wits may protect her in the cutthroat court, but they can’t change her fate. And as the boundary between hatred and love grows ever thinner with the prince, Violet must untangle a wicked web of deceit in order to save herself and the kingdom—or doom them all.

My Review:

Violet Made of Thorns was such a good read. The storyline was magical and so much fun. Lots of characters to fall in love with. Also I do love the cover so much. I’m looking forward to book two.

Violet I liked in the book a lot. She is the seer for the kingdom and a liar. Since she saved the prince years ago, she becomes the King’s favorite and is use to lie about stuff. When she has a dream something bad is coming, she willing to do anything to save herself.

Cyrus, which I love him so much. He always butting heads with Violet and don’t trust her gifts. He is force to get marry to save the kingdom. As a deadly prophecy, claim his fate. He puts up with Violet, since years ago she saved his life. Since he is holding back his feeling abd fighting them. In the end will the prophecy win.

This was a fast pace story. Which I love so much. Not a huge slow burn fan myself. This was a very quick read and get sucked in pretty good. Like any fantasy read there be some fun twists and slow burn romance. This book is such a good fantasy, hope some readers enjoyed it.

Happy Reading!!!!
