The next generation. A new adventure...

Over three decades have passed since the Ducelle Empire reclaimed the land, and Jordinia has never prospered more. When the Emperor negotiates a treaty among neighboring nations, Jordinia is awarded an archipelago of islands in the north. With intentions to colonize, His Majesty enlists his two underachieving nephews on an expedition to chart the wilderness.

Hello, Jordinia... we're back!



This book came as a surprise since the second installment of this series had seemed to be the last. Luckily, C.K. Brooke has gifted her readers with a yet another exciting adventure, featuring brand new characters and a few familiar faces.

When a treaty is signed, giving the emperor control over unexplored islands, he tasks his nephews to explore the land and report back with their findings. Ludwig is hesit

C.K. Brooke’s “The Duchess’s Descendants” follows the adventures of a whole new generation of Jordinian royalty. As in Brooke’s full length novel, The Duchess Quest, the men are tasked by their uncle, the emperor, to embark on a mission – in this case, the young men are siblings Drew and Vigo, rogue and stutterer respectively. Somehow, their feisty female sibling Johanna weasels her way into accompanying them, despite everyone’s protests that, after all, she’s a girl.

Of course every manner of ha

“The Duchess Descendants” is the fourth book in C.K. Brooke's Jordinia series and follows three of the duchess’s children into an adventure none of them could have ever imagined. Andrew is charming but spoiled and smart-mouthed, Ludwig is sensitive and shy, unable to communicate beyond a stutter unless he’s caressing the strings of his beloved violin; and their sister, Johanna, just needs to be out of Jordinia for a time until she can decide what to do about an unexpected gift which has resulted ...more

Space journal of buzz light year:

Its almost 1am and I just finished this book, sleep is for the weak. Apparently our dear author does know how to write books with less than a hundred chapters 😂 I really enjoyed this book, reading of Joni's hardship, Vigo's re birth in a sense and last but not least Drew, Drew was like his father in his youth until the right woman came and the boy fell in love. Joni was accepted into the palace with her daughter and I'm so glad she didn't have to marry that littl

**I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and not influenced by my source.**

Spin-offs are a tricky thing to write. Do you rely on the original characters and plot devices, or do you branch off on your own with new characters and a new plot? For me, it's a blend of both...and that's what C K Bro

C. K. Brooke’s “The Duchess's Descendants” draws the reader in from the first elegant royal scene. The characters are intriguing and set up quickly the adventure that lies before us. The reader discovers the believable inside lives of royal characters faced with a harrowing journey for country, family, and love. The point of view switches between chapters allowing us to understand the misunderstandings that happen between characters striving to be faithful to family, but also yearning to expand ...more

This book is a precious gem that I will forever keep close to my heart. I fell in love with the original characters from The Duchess Quest, and to step back into their world, with their descendants this time, was absolutely magical.

If you haven’t read the book that started it all, or its follow up, that’s fine, as this book is in many ways a standalone. It was just so wonderful to be able to tie these characters to their parents, and each time a bit of Jon Cosmith appeared in Drew, or Dainy in

If you haven't noticed, I've kind of been on a C.K. Brooke binge lately... and I'm LOVING it. Every book I've read by this author has been so different from the one before, but the quality is consistently astounding.

The Duchess's Descendants is beautifully written tale following three unique love stories, each with a heart of their own. From the delightfully progressive young Joahanna, to the over-compensatingly masculine Drew, to the quiet but loveable Ludwig, every character was fleshed out,

The Duchess's Descendants is sort of a follow on from the last book, The Duchess Quest, but, as the name implies, some of these characters are the next generation and some you will recognise, if you read it, from the last book.

As I am not into spoilers, this is all I'm saying:

All in all, it is well written and enthralling story that will take you on a rollercoaster ride of Ups and Downs, Romance, Battles, Learning, Growing, Achieving and all sorts of other experiences.
