Pawn of the Crown

Pawn of the Crown
All the Queen's Heirs Book 2
by Cassie Clover
Genre: YA Fantasy

Life at court isn’t full of peace or quiet for Royal Seer Kimess as she serves the Lazrel queen. With a royal engagement propping up the peace treaty, Kimess and Prince Nemal head to Bachal as guests of their king. It’s not easy but being up close with charming unicorn and fierce dragon shifters is a new experience. Kimess and Nemal hope to find some private time but are surrounded by security droids plus their own entourage. The queen’s directives are many: spy, make friends, don’t trigger a war, and capture a traitor—dead or alive. Kimess and her friends are balancing their delicate mission fairly well until a couple other royal visitors arrive—revealing secrets that ignite chaos.

I think this is an amazing YA series. I loved catching up with the same characters and seeing where things went after book 1 left off. But, you certainly have to read book 1 to understand the whole story. I feel that there's no way these could stand alone at all. But as a fantasy series, that's what you want.
In this book, we see Kimess really step into her role as Royal Seer and come into being a woman more. I love this. She's smart and a great female character for young girls to read about. I think this is going to be a really great series for young girls/young women.

Sixteen year old, Lady Kimess, is expected to one day inherit the role of Royal Seer. But when her mother dies under mysterious circumstances, Kimess steps up now. Untrained, and ill prepared, she doesn’t have a choice. Her remaining family’s safety, as well as her life, rest in the hands of the Queen of Lazrel. Kimess isn’t without allies—even royal ones. Both of the queen’s sons have shown support. If she’s not careful, a friendship with either prince could prove deadly.

Kimess’ telepathic and prophetic abilities are called into action when a delegation from the bordering empire arrives to renegotiate a treaty. Mistrust and rumors from every corner of the kingdom swirl around her. Under constant guard in the castle, the only way Kimess can keep her life and one day earn her freedom is by giving the queen everything she requires—no matter the risks.

This was an awesome book. I loved the new world created and the fact that it's run by women!!!
This is an amazing tale of deceit, twists, turns, plots and more. The story will keep you rolling from beginning to end. I loved Kimess. She is one strong young lady! I can't wait to see where this tale goes with the next book! It's truly a wonderful, clean read. There's real issues in it that would speak to not only YA readers, but adults as well. The author makes it easy to connect with each character in a way. You'll not want to miss out on reading this book!
