About this deal

Tucker introduces an intriguing world of elemental magic, gods, warring Elven kingdoms and political intrigue. It was literally putting me to sleep… all the politics, history and world building bored me so much I actually took two naps while trying to get through this book (which is never a good sign) - but even though it took me a while to wrap my head around what was going on… once I did, I got pretty invested in the story and was intrigued enough to make it through all of the info dumping. I can see why some people would get bored though, because the story does move very slowly in terms of plot, and because Romy is dumped into this world, and doesn’t understand the history, a lot of it is explained as “history lessons” instead of naturally being found out. Romeria knows she traded one dangerous boss for another but this time her world is literally changed for sure. I was sooooo delighted that it also lasted long enough for me to really dive in to it on more than just one day.

I really loved how unique the story was, then throw in a beautiful slow-burn romance made me more consumed with the story. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. It’s even better because it’s both a slow burn romance and a slow burn plot, but not in a tedious way. Hay escenas 🌶️ pero no en exceso y para nada quitan protagonismo a la historia (cosa que he agradecido 😝).I'm shelfing this as time-travel for my future rememberance but it's not time-travel; the story is set from New York to a magic universe.

Romy inhabits the body of the presumed to be dead and traitorous Princess Romeira of Ybaris and King Zander's betrothed. The only thing I didn't like about Romy is her refusal to accept that the world she's been thrown into really exists. It’s a giant fantasy world with a lot of key players and you’re never quite sure of who you can trust. It was obviously recommended to me by Koisty, who has become my official rec dealer, who always seems to know what I need to read and in which particular moment. Trying to grasp her situation it is made more worse when she is declared a traitor and assassin and is thrown into prison no matter her pleas of innocence.At times there was a LOT of information to take in but I suspect that it will be relevant in the rest. Con este libro no me he sentido así, la autora tiene una forma de escribir que invita a seguir leyendo, los acontecimientos me han parecido muy interesantes, el reino, el mundo, el sistema… todo está genial. However, this also means that wishing for more high quality content often leaves me unsattisfied in the end: Some books are way to predictable others are simply not catchy and even great books are often too short so that they dont last long enough with me.

While I may not be guilty, Princess Romeria is, and that’s the only person they see when they look at me.A. Tucker's books and this has been no exception, I loved all the characters especially Romeria and King Zander. It’s not an adult romance , I think we need to point it up that the steam is super light, close to upper YA. The tunic and breeches I found in my closet are fitted but comfortable, the navy cloak perfect to hide beneath. I also in general love books that take place in parallel worlds as it gives the excuse for contemporary writing and language to infiltrate fantasy in an easy and natural way that makes it not feel out of place. I just want to point out that this book had some of my favorite tropes - enemies to lovers, ”betray me and I’ll kill you”, arranged marriage hence faking affection in public.

But her situation is made all the more difficult because she has landed in Islor in the blood-soaked body of the Princess Romeria – an assassin from a neighbouring kingdom who is betrothed to Islor’s Prince, and she has just murdered the king and queen. How do you change that when the obvious moral objections aren’t enough because those in power benefit too much from the current system? The slow burn enemies to lovers romance between the two is angsty, full of tension and banter, and entirely full of chemistry.And so, Romy takes on the role of Princess Romeira and play Islor's smitten Queen-to-be which brings her closer to the King who despises her with every fiber of his being. Zander is broody, serious and extremely loyal to his kingdom and his responsibility to it’s inhabitants. There are two types of loyal people - one loyal to the throne, the other loyal to the king of that throne. In the first 80% of the book we didn’t get a ton of interactions between the two of them and instead we got all of the other stuff (which was important to understand what’s going on, but put me to sleep nonetheless)… but then in the last 20% everything started to pick up and we actually started getting somewhere with the romance and with the story in general… so that last little bit did end up saving the story for me and I’m excited to see if book two ends up getting more interesting now that we have a lot of the initial plot and world building out of the way.
