The Betrothed

The Betrothed by Keira Cass

I give this book a 3 out of 5 stars.

Imagine catching the attention of a king. Lady Hollis does not need to imagine. She is thrilled that King Jameson seems to be interested in courting her. Jameson is a very kind king and one who Hollis admires. Hollis is not exactly the perfect child her parents wanted. They wanted a son who was obedient and behaved excellently. Hollis was far from that description. However, she could become royalty and that made her parents happy. They constantly were nagging her to be someone she was not. 

When Hollis is invited to join King Jameson on a barge down the river. He floods her with compliments. Hollis throws a berry at another girl from court, hardly ladylike behavior. She falls right into the water. Jameson hardly ever laughs, but Hollis can make him laugh. 

Then Jameson invites Hollis to join him to meet a family from Isolte seeking sanctuary. This family, the Eastoffes, have traveled to Coroa to escape from their king. Hollis meets the eyes of one of the Isolten boys and sees his shocking blue eyes. This young man named Silas has eyes that are unforgettable. I don’t want to give any more details away, so you will have to read on to find out! 

I enjoyed the beginning of this book, however the end did not do it for me. Keira Cass is one of my favorite authors. I was quite disappointed by the ending. I am not going to spoil it for you guys, but suffice it to say, the ending did not satisfy me.

This book is available in hardcover and Kindle format. If you do not have a Kindle, you can read it on another electronic device. This is also a perfect excuse to buy a Kindle. I love reading on my Kindle, especially at night!
