    enjoyable second entry in this series

    I got hooked into reading the first title in this series, Kill the Queen, by its first two sentences: “The day of the royal massacre started out like any other. With me doing something completely, utterly useless.” So you can imagine my amusement when I discovered that the second book, Protect the Prince, starts out: “The day of the first assassination attempt started out like any other. With me girding myself for battle.” So again, I was hooked, and again, I very much enjoyed reading this fantasy-style adventure. But this is supposed to be a review, so here goes… Where the first book was a riff on the classic minor-royal-gets-done-down-but-wins-in-the-end theme, this book is a riff on the classic adventure/quest theme. But just as with the first one, Estep does it so well that I didn’t mind the slightly trope-ish plot at all – I just settled in for what turned out to be a really fun ride. As Protect the Prince starts out, Lady Everleigh (Evie) Saffira Winter Blair, the former seemingly very minor Bellonan royal who has fought her way to being queen, is finding that staying queen can be as challenging as becoming queen. Even though she defeated the previous queen (the architect of the royal massacre) in the first book, it’s not that easy to actually govern a bunch of conniving nobles, to say nothing of cranky neighboring kingdoms and a few assassins and spies. And things get tougher when she heads for the next-door kingdom of Ardvari to try to negotiate an alliance. Her journey provides the context for a couple more assassination attempts, a particularly ingenious use of one more of her “completely, utterly useless” skills from the first book, and some misunderstood romantic angst that presumably is setting up the third book. I’m not sure there was a whole lot of deep new character development in this book, but there was a bit, and together with the adventures, Protect the Prince kept me awake reading until late in the night. Now I’m not so patiently waiting for the third book in the series, and not just to see what its first two sentences are!

    Loved it

    Loved it. Can't wait to read the next one. You must start with book 1. Great characters and a different take on the usual magic elements.
