This review may contains spoilers if you haven’t read the first book of this series
When I requested this book I didn’t realize it was the second book in The Kingdm of Cymmera series, so obviously I had to read the first book first. I was a a bit afraid that I might not like the series but luckily I enjoyed the first book! I really like the world of Cymmera and it has some fun fantastical creatures besides dragons. The romance aspect in the first book went a bit too fast in my opinion but besides that I liked the book. I love the fact that Ryleigh would do anything to save her little sister.
In the second book Ryleigh and Jackson still have struggles in their relationship because they are both from different worlds. Some parts in the book were a bit predictable and the writing was repetitive. But besides that the book is easy to read and well-paced. I wish there would be a better explanation about the savages, because I was still a bit confused by who or what the savages exactly were.
If you enjoy fantasy and romance you should give the first book “Reluctant Prince” a shot.
