Jennifer Estep – Protect the Prince

Magic, murder, adventure, and romance combine in this second novel in the exciting Crown of Shards saga from New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Jennifer Estep.

Everleigh Blair might be the new gladiator queen of Bellona, but her problems are far from over.

First, Evie has to deal with a court full of arrogant, demanding nobles, all of whom want to get their greedy hands on her crown. As if that wasnt bad enough, an assassin tries to kill Evie in her own throne room.

Despite the dangers, Evie goes ahead with a scheduled trip to the neighboring kingdom of Andvari in order to secure a desperately needed alliance. But complicating matters is the stubborn Andvarian king who wants to punish Evie for the deaths of his countrymen during the Seven Spire massacre.

Dark forces are also at work inside the Andvarian palace, and Evie soon realizes no one is safe. Worse, her immunity to magic starts acting in strange, unexpected ways, which makes Evie wonder whether she is truly strong enough to be a winter queen.

Evies magic, life, and crown arent the only things in danger – so is her heart, thanks to Lucas Sullivan, the Andvarian kings bastard son and Evies…well, Evie isnt quite sure what Sullivan is to her.

Only one thing is certain – protecting a prince might be even harder than killing a queen….

The pacing felt a little slow at first, but I ended up really enjoying this sequel. While Im excited for book three, I appreciated that this one didnt end on a horrible cliffhanger!
