As a child, Lady Elsabeth Durnfir dreamed of marrying a prince, but after seeing her elder sister’s personality make a complete 180 degree turn after her engagement to Crown Prince Henry of Estoria is announced, Elsabeth has traded in her childish hopes of a fairytale wedding for the equally unlikely hope of inheriting Durnfir Manor and the surrounding land.

Once upon a time, my mother brought home a huge book of fairy tales. No, seriously-- it was about two feet square, so big I could only look at its incredible full page illustrations when it was spread out on the floor. At first I adored it, but after (many, many) reads, I realized that the pictures made me uncomfortable for two reasons.

First, according to those gorgeous paintings, fairy tale princesses were wimps who needed rescuing, and their siblings were pretty much the face of evil. Especial

Rules of Ascension is the first book I have read from author Suzy Knight. This was a quick read and I really enjoyed this story.

In Rules of Ascension Lady Elsabeth Durnfir is forced to go to the royal court with her older sister, Alicia. Alicia is engaged to the Crown Prince Henry of Estoria, so they return to the royal court to plan the wedding. Estoria is a mythical land similar to our 18th century, where woman were unappreciated. Rather than be at the royal court Elsabeth dreams

Review forthcoming on http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...

I received a copy of Rules of Ascension in exchange for my review.

With Alicia disapproving of just about everything that Elsabeth does, to the point where she can't even talk about the things she likes, Elsabeth feels trapped. Yet there's something about the second Prince, Frederick that ca

This book teaches that there is more than meets the eye to things and that we really shouldn't judge someone by what others say and think.
Case in point: Alicia. She seems all sweet and kind but there is a fierce protectiveness of family and also a desire to be in power. Too be the best and have that to lord over her Elisabeth is really all that you see and more. No judgement of others. Just takes them for who they are and doesn't care what others think or say. She just wants to be free of the sh

Lover of Romance
When I was asked to read and review this one, I was excited especially after I saw this gorgeous cover and read the blurb. I love any romance set in a historical period and this one was great. It is set in the medieval period, where there are knights, and the court and yummy princes. This story is about a young woman that is forced to come to court, a woman that loves to be free and watch the sunrise and play. She doesn't like to be restricted. Now she is at the royal court, because her sister i ...more
