AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER!
"Made for fans of Victoria Aveyard and Sabaa Tahir" (Bustle), Ash Princess is an epic new fantasy about a throne cruelly stolen and a girl who must fight to take it back for her people.
Theodosia was six when her country was invaded and her mother, the Fire Queen, was murdered before her eyes. On that day, the Kaiser took Theodosia's family, her land, and her name. Theo was crowned Ash Princess--a title of shame to bear in her new life as a prisoner.
For ten years Theo has been a captive in her own palace. She's endured the relentless abuse and ridicule of the Kaiser and his court. She is powerless, surviving in her new world only by burying the girl she was deep inside.
Then, one night, the Kaiser forces her to do the unthinkable. With blood on her hands and all hope of reclaiming her throne lost, she realizes that surviving is no longer enough. But she does have a weapon: her mind is sharper than any sword. And power isn't always won on the battlefield.
For ten years, the Ash Princess has seen her land pillaged and her people enslaved. That all ends here.
"Sure to be one of the summer's most talked about YAs. . . . A darkly enchanting page-turner you won't be able to put down."-Bustle
Overall not bad
Pretty good overall. Really liked the world building along with characters but the ending was a bit patchy. Felt like some parts were waaay, waay too far drawn out and then at the ending it just...finishes and goes to the epilogue. Weird.
Best New Book
Whether or not you are a fan of fiction books, this book is so well written, thrilling, exhilarating, and fast-paced that it is impossible not to like. I would recommend this book to all readers. It is just that good.
Read It In An Hour
Beautifully written. This is assuringly fictional, yet it feels so real. Theodosia goes though it all, so it seems okay that she may make a few wrong decisions, but her final decision broke my heart. I’d recommend this to 13+ readers who love action, a touch of romance, and a character who needs to discover how real the person she’s pretending to be is.
