Title: Kingdom Cold by Brittni Chenelle
Rating: 3 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
It all started with an unwanted wedding arrangement and an arrow that missed its target...
This is a story of a princess forced to marry a prince in order to save her kingdom. Princess Charlotte is meant to marry Prince Young however, the ceremony is stopped by an attack on her kingdom. Now she has to marry someone else in order to save her kingdom and her father. However, this is not what her heart wants but she must choose between love and duty.
This is a story of love and how it can develop even in the most difficult of times. Kingdom Cold was a quick read (I read it in a day) that kept me going because of the many twists.
The whole story was good but the characters, not so much. I felt that the characters were plain and a bit glossed over. I understood their actions but I did not like, or connect with them. In fact, many of them were annoying. I also found it weird that they spoke like they had just come from the 21st century which ruined the whole historical effect.
On the upside, they were a realistic depiction of actual teenagers. They were impulsive, irrational and immature which was a pleasant change from the usual 'I am leading a revolution at 16 YA book characters I am used to'.
With that said, this was generally a good book and YA lovers should give it a try.
**** 17 days to go ****
*****This book will be released on Valentine's Day. Until then, enjoy the trailer
